Season 4


  • Bomberman was the first combatant killed by his own weapon, with the next five being The Terminator, Sam Fisher, The Meta, Shovel Knight and Silver Samurai.
  • Starscream is the only Death Battle combatant to lose who technically didn't die since his Spark is immortal.
    • Bayonetta also didn't technically die as she can still escape Inferno and return to Purgatorio (though if she doesn't she will have).
    • Mega Man and Metal Sonic could also be potentially brought back as they are robots that can be rebuilt.
  • Lion-O and Nightmare are currently the only losers who were killed by a certain object being destroyed, being the Eye of Thundera and Soul Edge respectively.
  • Pikachu is currently the smallest Death Battle loser.
  • The Terminator is currently the youngest Death Battle loser.
  • The Megazord is currently the largest Death Battle loser.
  • Raiden and Majin Buu are currently the oldest Death Battle losers.
    • Both also share the distinction of being killed by being forced into the sun and disintegrated.
  • Goku is so far the most powerful Death Battle loser.
  • Boba Fett, Batman, Goku, Charizard, Shadow the Hedgehog and Wonder Woman are the only Death Battle losers to appear in another Death Battle after their loss.
    • Batman, Metal Sonic, Wonder Woman and Thor are the only characters to have both lost and won.
    • Charizard is the only character to get both sprites and 3D models in the same season, it is also the only character to have lost in both episode appearances during the same season it appears in.
    • Boba Fett and Goku are the only combatants to lose both of their Death Battles to the same character.
    • A T-Shirt of Death Battle that was made by ScrewAttack contains entire Season 1 Losers and first-five Season 2 Losers.
    • Charizard and Shadow the Hedgehog are the only combatants to lose twice to different combatants.
      • Dan Hibiki was also killed in Ken VS Terry, but unlike Charizard and Shadow, he was not actually fighting anyone and was just a casualty of Ken and Terry's fight.
      • Silver Samurai also technically got killed twice in his own battle, once by the hands of Super Shredder, and once by getting crushed by the devil in hell after the fight.
  • Mega Man has the distinction of his actual death being difficult to determine due to only a distance shot of the explosion before his demise being shown. It is unknown if this was caused by Mega Man overheating via his dual mega busters and exploding or if due to his opponent Astro Boy's impact into him.
  • Riptor, Bayonetta, Erza Scarlet and Renamon are the only female combatants to lose a Death Battle to a male combatant, those being Yoshi, Dante, Roronoa Zoro and Lucario respectively.

  • The Hulk is the first and so far only hero to lose a Death Battle to a villain, that being Doomsday.
  • Gamera and Ryu are the first two heroes to lose to anti-heroes, those being Godzilla and Scorpion.
  • Erza Scarlet is the first combatant to have been sliced in half vertically instead of horizontally, followed by Metal Sonic.
