Hey, can you put that little, uh, thing back down in there?

No, no, no, the one below it.

You're just a little up in my face right now.

Oh, I'm sorry. Am I being annoying?

'Cause you said we'd be done at 10, and it's 4 in the morning.

Look, I don't know how to say this.

You know what, fuck it. Let me just fucking say it.

Nice Peter:

I'm fucking burnt out, man! It's been six years every day

That I wake up and come to work to look at your hungover face!

I need some personal space to get away from your screaming,

But every time I turn my back, mother fucker, you start scheming

To take over control of some shit I'm already doing just fine!

We'd have more subs than PewDiePie if you didn't fight me every time

I try to take our little baby in a creative direction!

I'm trying to make art, mother fucker; you're trying to find a rhyme for erection!

I'm sorry, man! No, I'm fucking not! Fuck you!

You're second class! That's why I let you run ERB2!

You're so afraid to lose, but losing's all you do,

And tonight, I'm not quitting the battles! Bitch, I'm quitting you!


Quit me then, you pussy! We'll see what happens!

I'll sit back and watch you unravel and revel in pure satisfaction!

I'm out of compassion for you and your self-righteous bullshit!

Erection jokes, dude? Your whole name means dick!

I'm sick of smoothing things out! The same routine!

ERB2 is right! I'm covering your ass behind the scenes,

And then I try to tell you things, but you're too stubborn to understand!

Like, dude, that is not a cool way to play Batman!

You manipulate your friends, and then you throw them away!

I don't know who you shit on worse: myself or Dante!

But I'm not an entrée at one of your fancy restaurants,

So quit eating up my time picking one of your fancy fonts,

And make a fucking decision so all these people can leave!

Excuse me for interrupting Rocket League and smoking weed!

They got places to be, and now they're looking at me!

Nice Diva is my new name for you, Nice Pete!

Nice Peter:

And doink! Nice punchline, bro.

Your jokes haven't grown since you told them in a lunch line, bro!

You're an eight-year-old boy stuck inside a whatever-year-old man!

"(Argh!) Look at me! I'm EpicLLOYD! Check me out! I can

Rap about my problems instead of solving them!"

If you wanna heal, you gotta deal with your issues 'cause a bottle's not stopping them!


Don't take this battle there, dude. You don't want that at all!

Let me guess: right now you're on two beers and a pill and a half of Adderall,

And that makes you obsessive, and then you fuck up all the fun,

So why don't you trust the editors and stop changing their shit after they're done?

Nice Peter:

Yo, don't try to paint me as some compulsive little jerk!

If you weren't so cheap, we could hire some editors that do good work!

Who do you think just— Oh, that's real funny, Andrew!


Aww, c'mon! Now what the fuck did I do?


(Allrounda Beats.) What?

Who the fuck left the tag in?



[Off-screen viewer clicks the like button on the video.]

Thanks. Yeah.

Hey, Allrounda. Can you put the—

Yeah, and the little, uh, nice.

We cool, guys?

The ERB Crew:

Yeah. I guess so.

Okay, I've got the card. Did you dump it?

Get your mark. Quiet, please! Here we go!

And action!

Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD (simultaneously):

Yo, I guess what I'm saying, man, is that I'm running out of patience, man!

I'm a patient man, but sometimes you need to be a patient, man!

I got the same shit that I was dealing with at the very beginning!

I'm trying to get somewhere with it, man, but all your bitching is keeping my wheels spinning!

I've fought with my wife and gone under the knife,

And I've taken years off of the back of my life!

Man, since right in the beginning we been fighting! No one's winning!

People would kill to do what we do for a living! Your bitching is keeping my wheels spinning!


That was weird. Yup.

I'm sorry about some of the things that I said.

I'm sorry about the way you played Batman.

I think I just need a break. Yeah, me too.

You wanna write a song? Yeah, dude!





  • This is the sixth battle to feature footage that was not filmed in front of a screen, as the ERB studio was filmed in their actual studio.
  • This is the last episode produced by Maker Studios.


  • The backgrounds Peter and Lloyd cycle through are, in order of appearance, from Batman vs Sherlock Holmes, Nikola Tesla vs Thomas Edison, Rick Grimes vs Walter White, Mozart vs Skrillex, David Copperfield vs Harry Houdini, Jim Henson vs Stan Lee, Bob Ross vs Pablo Picasso, Gandalf vs Dumbledore, Einstein vs Stephen Hawking, Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates, the Darth Vader vs Hitler trilogy, and J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin.
    • The only backgrounds not to be from a Peter vs Lloyd battle were Batman vs Sherlock Holmes and Einstein vs Stephen Hawking.
    • Dante Cimadamore, the body actor for Nikola Tesla, takes Peter's place at Wardenclyffe Tower, as Peter only did the voice for Tesla.
    • J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin was the only battle where the location was not reversed to put Peter and Lloyd in the location of the characters they played as. Instead, Peter raps where George R. R. Martin did, while Lloyd raps where J. R. R. Tolkien did.
      • The first Vader vs Hitler battle also had the backgrounds where they were in this battle, yet Hitler vs Vader 2 and Hitler vs Vader 3 had the backgrounds reversed.
      • Jim Henson vs Stan Lee also had its characters in the orientation shown in this battle, but only during Walt Disney's verse with the camera angle changed, not while they were rapping.
    • Peter and Lloyd later appear on the YouTube page for this battle's predecessor, Nice Peter vs EpicLLOYD.
  • As Peter mocks Lloyd, he stands on top of an apple box, which is used throughout the series to give some characters the illusion of being the same height, commonly used for characters played by Lloyd.
    • This could also be a reference to the first battle between them, where Lloyd wears a pair of sunglasses, mimicking Peter; in this case, Peter wears a flat cap, standing on an apple box to mimic Lloyd.
  • The video itself is a reference to the step-by-step production of an actual ERB video as shown in multiple behind the scenes videos.
    • During Nice Peter's first verse they are recording and mixing the audio, which is then exported and given to the team of editors. The latter half of his verse has them both on the green screen to be recorded and later keyed out in front of a background.
    • EpicLLOYD's verse transitions to the second person shots typically seen in ERB videos. The green screen is masked out, and the background behind him is an empty black screen, typically done for finishing touches on the keying, lighting and motion graphics before tangible locations are put in during editing. Finally, the backgrounds are placed behind him, completing the video's visuals.
    • During the breakdown in Nice Peter's third verse, the process is reversed: The backgrounds are removed, the video goes back to the raw footage of them on the green screen, and both actors return to the recording room to finish their last verses.


  • In the line, "Excuse me for interrupting Rocket League and smoking weed," "interrupting" is misspelled as "interupting."
  • At 1:53, EpicLLOYD's legs have gray and black shadows in front of them.
  • Multiple candle flames are seen bugging out in the Great Hall, with the same rendering bugs as seen in J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin.
  • When Lloyd says, "Your bitching is keeping my wheels spinning!", the word "is" is shown twice in the subtitles.
