  • A few suggestions were shown on the latest VGRB News video, reading:
    • Calvin and Hobbes vs Ash and Pikachu (so incredibly happy to see Calvin and Hobbes here, but Bill Watterson would never want them to have voices)
      • Uncle Sam vs Mother Russia (very. broad)
      • Eddie Vedder vs Kurt Cobain ft. Dave Grohl (interesting, we've seen Kurt vs Jimi a lot, but never this)
      • Alexander Hamilton vs Aaron Burr (now we're talking, a little stiff for an VGRB, 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, Justin said that Sigmund Freud vs Mother Teresa is "fucking hilarious".
          • In  a Nathan Provost Podcast with Zack & Fel, Peter asked what duo they should be next and Zack responded Ben & Jerry with Peter saying Ben & Jerry VS Barnum & Bailey, while Zack said Ben & Jerry VS The Ringling Brothers.

Character hints: Edit

  • Somebody asked that VGRB would do a battle with George S. Patton in it, such as George S. Patton vs Erwin Rommel. VGRB 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 VGRB 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..."
    • During a Reddit AMA, TheSteelerNation2 suggested to Justin Indiana Jones vs James Bond. Justin responded by saying Indiana Jones has not been thrown around a lot but James Bond would be an excellent character to use.

      • In an episode of Mark Twain @ AOL, Mark Twain (portrayed by Bryce Wissel) meets Justin band begs him to put him in a rap battle, and suggests that his opponent could be Edwin Abbot Abbot or Henry Brook Adams.

  • According to a blog on Nathan's site, Nathan 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".
    • He 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 appearence of Hippocrates.
      • During a podcast on February 24th between Justin and Nathan, They noted that two of the planned battles were "sketchy". If this was a literal meaning, this could be a subtle hint at Mr. Bean vs Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney vs Jim Henson, or another artist battle, however, it could also mean that they might change two of the battles.

      • On March 14th, Nathan tweeted "I'm sitting alone at a bar, two pages into a biography of Jim Henson, eyes wet already. #fridays #rapgame", possibly hinting Jim Henson in a future rap battle.
        • On March 30th, Kevintweeted "It's been a wild Sunday" as well as "A wild Sunday indeed.", linking both a picture and a video of different puppets.
          • In response to the video, Kevin posted on Instagram "@issmylie what you're witnessing is pure post-Jim Henson bio reading inspiration-bliss-new obsession", further hinting towards Jim Henson appearing.
      • In the eighth episode of Nathan's podcast, found here, it is mentioned that one of the battles in Season 4 will be a story-based battle.
      • Kevin replied to a tweet on Twitter asking if Season 4 would be magical. He replied saying, "So magical".
        • This was likely hinting at David Copperfield vs Harry Houdini, or also Walt Disney.
      • On their Facebook, VGRB said that they would be working together with Sam Macaroni in a battle. Recently, Sam also posted a picture of a RoboCop suit with the caption, "Shooting this next week".

      • On VGRB's social media, a picture was posted of Nathan with hair and a moustache similar to Friedrich Nietzsche. This would most likely be for the East vs West finale.
        • According to Justin on Periscope and Nathan on a radio show at 1:43:30 both talked about considering Freddy Fazbear VS Chuck E. Cheese.

Actor hints: Edit

  • In late 2014, SkyDoesMinecraft made a video saying that "some pretty epic things were coming in rap form", possibly hinting towards him being in a rap battle.
  • Frenzy confirmed on Twitter that he would be portraying someone in Season 3.5. The day before he posted this tweet, MCGamingFTW, MaNCHA, and Zombielicker were seen in the studio portraying the Eastern Philosophers. This heavily suggests that Frenzy would be playing one of their opponents, a Western Philosopher.
