Information on the actors
Rhett James McLaughlin and Charles Lincoln "Link" Neal III, more commonly known together as Rhett and Link, are musicians and self-styled "Internetainers" (a portmanteau of the words "Internet" and "entertainers"). They are best known for their work on YouTube, including comedic music videos, sketches, and their morning talk show, Good Mythical Morning. Rhett and Link refer to their fanbase as "Mythical Beasts," due to them first having met in the first grade while drawing unicorns and other mythical creatures as punishment for writing swear words on their desks.
Outside of YouTube, they are known for their humorously low-quality commercials for local businesses, which led to their own short-lived TV show, Commercial Kings, on IFC. One commercial in particular, for taxidermist Chuck Testa, has become an internet meme due to its absurd nature. In addition to their work on television, they have made a documentary called Looking for Ms. Locklear, in which they search for their first grade teacher Ms. Locklear, who caused their friendship.
- Before ERB began, Rhett and Link made a video titled "Epic Rap Battle!", which was said to be an inspiration for the Epic Rap Battles of History series. They have since made several more rap battles, including "EPIC RAP BATTLE of MANLINESS," which featured cameos from Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD as two joggers who interrupt their arguing.
- Nice Peter, EpicLLOYD, and several other ERB guests have appeared on their podcast, Ear Biscuits.
- Rhett & Link hardly ever use profanity in their videos (and censor it on the very rare occasions they do) leading to the censoring of "motherfucker" and "shit" in Mario Bros vs Wright Bros and Lewis and Clark vs Bill and Ted, respectively.

- They are the second guest duo to appear, the first being PrankvsPrank.
- They, Zach Sherwin, George Watsky, Key & Peele, DeStorm Power, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Dan Bull, and Kimmy Gatewood are the only guest stars to have a rapping role in more than one season so far.
- They are also the second duo to reappear, after Key & Peele.
- They were referenced in Dis Raps For Hire - Season 2 Episode 5: Diamond when Lloyd said the line, "So if you wanna talk Rett, let me give you a Link!"
- In both of the battles where they appear as as a duo, they are announced as a group.
- However, when they were announced as the Renaissance Artists, both of them got their own title card.
- Lewis and Clark vs Bill and Ted is the first battle they rap in where none of the rappers are established Italians.
- Every battle so far has had them rapping against some form of entertainment originating in the 1980s:
- Every battle with them so far has had an appearance of the Mario Brothers in some form:
