    • Uncle Sam vs Mother Russia (very. broad.)
    • Eddie Vedder vs Kurt Cobain ft. Dave Grohl (interesting, we've seen Kurt vs Jimi Hendrix a lot, but never this)
    • Alexander Hamilton vs Aaron Burr (now we're talking, a little stiff for an ERB, but love the real life rivalry now and then)
    • Osama bin Laden vs Chuck Norris (hilarious. we've always thought Bin Laden is just too touchy, people get so aggro on both sides, plus Chuck Norris would just own)
  • During a Periscope on April 30th, 2015, Lloyd said that Sigmund Freud vs Mother Teresa is "fucking hilarious".
  • In a Nice Peter Podcast with Rhett & Link, Peter asked what duo they should be next and Link responded with Ben & Jerry. Peter then responded with the matchup of Ben & Jerry vs Barnum & Bailey, while Link said Ben & Jerry vs the Ringling Brothers.[1]

  • On January 19th, 2016, ERB tweeted a picture captioned "2Bach", which may indicate Tupac or Bach being put in a battle, potentially against each other.[2]
    • This is not the first time the picture has been shared on one of ERB's various social media accounts, suggesting that ERB is aware of what it could perhaps signify.
    • In an ERB News video, Bach vs Macklemore was considered a "cool and very creative" suggestion.[3]

Nice Peter's paragraph on the comment section of J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin

Character hints:

  • A comment on YouTube suggested that ERB do a battle with George S. Patton in it, such as Patton vs Erwin Rommel. ERB replied with: "now that is up my alley. I am reading the world's most boring book at the moment. it's a training guide for military officers that breaks down Rommel's manouvers battle by battle. Something about Rommel fascinates me. It's a little deep for an ERB right now, but I'll definitely think about that. and Patton rules. hmm.… I'm getting an idea… they call Rommel the desert fox, he could possibly go up against.… another guy with an animal nickname…and then Patton could… hmmmm…"
  • In an ERB News video, Peter replied that he might want to use Ronald McDonald because he would love to slam on the company, but he also said that it would be very tough to use that registered trademark.
  • In an episode of Mark Twain @ AOL, Mark Twain (portrayed by Bryce Wissel) begs Lloyd to put him in a rap battle, and suggests that his opponent could be Edwin Abbot Abbot or Henry Brooke Adams. This could hint to Bryce Wissel portraying Mark Twain in a battle and possibly against either of the suggested opponents.[4]
  • Peter has stated that he was reading up on Alexander Graham Bell, possibly hinting at him battling Mark Zuckerberg.
  • In an episode of the Monday Show, Peter and Lloyd were trying on Wolverine claws and said that they may use them in a future rap battle.
    • Stan Lee eventually used Wolverine's claws in Jim Henson vs Stan Lee as a reference to his creation, leaving the chances of Wolverine himself appearing in a future battle uncertain.
  • According to a blog on Peter's site, Peter says Dr. House may be too late but after a few comments, he says: "I am mildly, if not completely obsessed with Dr. House at the moment, so anything is possible".[5]
    • He has also stated this regarding choosing potential candidates for battles: "The challenge […] is being able to make something which our audience can at least understand. […] The best scenario, to me, is to use characters that anyone can understand why they are important, whether or not they know going into it what they are all about. Hippocrates is great example for that. He's a baller, not that many people, including me, know many details about his life, but that just gives us an opportunity to find it out in research, and then put it together into a rap that can educate while being entertaining. Anyway, that's the goal." This may suggest a possible appearance of Hippocrates.
  • According to Lloyd on Periscope and Peter on a radio show at 1:43:30, both talked about previously considering Freddy Fazbear vs Chuck E. Cheese.[6]
  • Buddy Holly is great, but there are many others to choose from.
  • Peter mentioned in a livestream with Tom Green that if Eminem ever wanted to be in an ERB, he would have him portray someone known for having a way with words, such as Karl Marx or Aristotle.
  • At their concert in Los Angeles, a stop on their 2015 World Tour, Lloyd mentioned how Peter was looking into the Three Musketeers.
  • At a concert on their World Tour in Burnsville, Minnesota, Lloyd stated he was open to the idea of Pee-Wee Herman in a battle.
  • In a livestream, Peter revealed that they have discussed the appearance of a Disney princess in a battle.
  • In the description of Hitler vs Vader 3, ERB asked, "Skywalker, Chewbacca, Leia.. who do you want to see in a future rap battle?", hinting at more Star Wars characters in the future.

Actor hints:

  • ERB tweeted and later posted on Faceboook about Chali 2na's new video saying "Really diggin this new @Chali2na video! What do you think of us bringing him back to play the Allstate guy?"[7][8]
  • While Peter likes the idea of getting the Vlogbrothers to guest in an ERB, he mentioned that they were some of the busiest people he knew and they would be hard to get.
  • Peter liked the idea of Alex Farnham as Jim Carrey.
  • Peter will definitely let Eminem be in an ERB if they are able to contact him.
  • The Jackpot Golden Boys responded to a Facebook comment asking whether they would be in an ERB, saying that they were very willing to be in one if the time ever came along.
  • In the description of Adam vs Eve, ERB asked, "Who wants to see Jenna Marbles in another battle?", hinting at her return for a future battle.
  • In the description of Moses vs Santa Claus, ERB asked, "If Snoop returns in a future rap battle who should he portray?", hinting at his return for a future battle.
  • In the description of Dr. Seuss vs Shakespeare, ERB asked, "If Watsky returns in a battle, who should he portray?", hinting at his return for a future battle.
  • When Harley Morenstein (Epic Meal Time) was asked on Twitter if there was "any chance of [him] participating in a YouTube battle of rap soon," he liked the tweet, possibly hinting at him being featured in an upcoming battle.
