Deadpool vs Boba Fett is the fifty-eighth installment of Epic Rap Battles of History and the first bonus episode. It features the Merc with a Mouth from Marvel Comics, Deadpool, rapping against galactic bounty hunter from Star Wars, Boba Fett. It was released on December 16th, 2015.
This is the second time the video game has been featured in a battle, after appearing at the back of the Firehouse Headquarters in Ghostbusters vs Mythbusters.
This is the seventh battle where both characters are fictional.
On August 22nd, 2016, "We will be back with Season 5.5, faster than Chewbacca washes his hair" was written in the description of the video. This is a reference to the fact that Chewbacca and Boba Fett are both from the Star Wars universe.
The quote was then changed to, "ERB will be back with a brand new rap battle this week. Keep your eyes peeled!", before the release of Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton.
According to a podcast, production for this battle began on October 10th, 2015, 67 days before it was released.
This battle contains Boba Fett's second appearance, with the first being in Hitler vs Vader 3.
The line, "With five lines in the trilogy, and one of them was, 'AAAH!'", could be a reference to the fact that Boba Fett had five lines in the Hitler vs Vader trilogy, one of them being the Wilhelm scream.
The line, "Who you calling schizophrenic?! You've got two different voices!", could be interpreted as a reference to the fact that Nice Peter voiced Boba Fett in this battle, while he was voiced by Ray William Johnson in Hitler vs Vader 3.
In the cover art and the thumbnail, part of Deadpool's suit is missing on his left side.
Deadpool's suit reflects magenta during parts of the battle. This was caused by the blue screen used in the video.
Deadpool's twin katanas and Boba Fett's jetpack disappear and reappear several times throughout the battle.
In the line, "And lose to the dude a huge toothie cootchie chewed up?!", holes in Deadpool's face appeared during a few frames.
In the line, "You stole Spider-Man's eyes and Snake Eyes' weapons!", Spider-Man was misspelled as "Spiderman" in the subtitles.
In the line, "That Dr. Killebrew dude needs to go back to med school," Killebrew was misspelled as "Killbrew" in the subtitles.
In the line, "Ooooh, what's that? A missile backpack?", the word missile was misspelled as "missle" in the subtitles.
In the line, "You've got two different voices!", part of Deadpool's left arm and katana were cut off.
In the line, "You're like your holiday special, man: full of bad choices," Deadpool's feet went outside the panel.
In the line, "They should've made the choice to ditch the prick from Van Wilder," the Boba Fett that was spinning on his head was missing his antenna.
In the line, "So maybe don't talk about movies 'cause you've got dick to say!", a yellow cross briefly appeared on a street tough's knife while trying to stab Deadpool.
After the explosion in the line, "I'll beat your ass with one eye closed (ugh!): Boba Fetty Wap!", the Rebel soldier closest to the left got part of his blaster and foot cut off.
While Boba Fett was doing backflips at 2:07, some of his helmet reflected blue, thus making parts of the helmet invisible due to the blue screen.
The subtitles from Boba Fett's last line continued briefly into the "Who won?" slide.
