Interlude

The Rooster Teeth logo is shown before the episode is abruptly paused.

Boomstick: You sure this is gonna work? This'll shut him up for good?

Wiz: Trust me, it's the perfect plan.

Boomstick: Okay then, let's get started.

The episode is them promptly resumed.

Wiz: To most of us, the laws of reality are unbending rules we never question.

Boomstick: Even for us! But for some people, they're more like... guidelines.

Wiz: Such as Deadpool, Marvel's Merc with a Micropenis.

Boomstick: And The Mask, a total chad who just oozes big dick energy.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick looking off in anticipation.

Wiz: Huh... Could've sworn that would get his attention.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win—

Deadpool (now an animated avatar instead of a 3D model) then pops on the Death Battle Lab's monitor.

Deadpool: My third Death Battle! HA! Wait, what was that about a micropeni—

Right as he's about to finish, the Death Battle transition card closes over, cutting him off.

Wiz: Every famous superhero has a special something that makes them recognizable. Some are gothic knights of darkness, a showcase of order versus chaos. Some are instantly relatable, a prime example of an average person in a not-so-average world.

Boomstick: And some are shoved in your face over and over and OVER AGAIN until you just can't take it anymore!

Deadpool appears on-screen.

Deadpool: Aw, shucks! Are you talking about me? You're such a sweet talker!

Boomstick: GO AWAY.

Deadpool: We've been through this, but why stop a good thing? Hi. I'm Wade Wilson, masterful mercenary and twice robbed of winning People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" award. Way back, I got stuck in a seriously shitty situation called "cancer", the worst supervillain. But then the good folks of Department K offered me a cure! Sounded great... Until I learned the big plot twist.

Wiz: Department K was actually a sect of the Weapon X program, a top-secret project for crafting super-soldiers by any means necessary.

Boomstick: They shot Wade up with fifty CCs of hot, creamy Wolverine juice. It gave him the same crazy healing factor, but also turned his face into an improv comedy prop.


Weasel: You look like an avocado had sex with an older, more disgusting avocado.

Wade: Yeah...


Wiz: After escaping in gruesome fashion, Wade resumed his life as a mercenary, taking the name: Deadpool.

Boomstick: He's got your standard superhuman buffs. Super strength, super speed, super toughness, the works.

Boomstick: But he put that super swagger to use as an expert martial artist. Though, it's hard to tell sometimes, 'cause he lets himself get hit a lot.

Deadpool: Hey, when you have a healing factor that would make even Logan's nuclear-charred adamantium skeleton blush, you let yourself nosh on a lead sandwich every once in a while. I've survived gunshot wounds, impalement, organ destruction, soupifacation, and even freaking disintegration. Good luck trying to take me out!

Wiz: Don't take all the credit for yourself. You know you were cursed with everlasting life by Thanos during some of that.

Deadpool: Yeah, well, me and Space Grimace have a really deep relationship... 'bout as deep as I am in his girlfriend, hey-yo!

Boomstick: Good thing Thanos removed the curse so we could violently murder you.

Wiz: An impulse I deeply empathize with.

Deadpool: Well, as much as I liked getting resurrected after that, I like doing the opposite to other people even more. As in killing them. With weapons, especially my lovely Golden Girls, Bea and Arthur.

Boomstick: That would be his katanas, which are almost unbreakable thanks to an energy field from his suit. Fully charged, they can even cut the Hulk.

Wiz: Even then, Deadpool is a walking arsenal with enough machine guns, sniper rifles, grenades, rocket launchers, tranquilizers, et cetera, to take out a small country.

Deadpool: And if I'm feeling cute, I might delete you later with any one of the wacky weapons of mass destruction I've picked up on my misadventures. Like, a gun that wipes you from history, the actual Venom symbiote, and the seventh Infinity Stone, the Continuity Gem! It rewrites canon itself and could even make Wiz and Boomstick bearable co-hosts... I mean, maybe.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: Oh yeah? Well, let's go over some of these feats of yours. Take it away, Wiz.

Wiz: With pleasure. Deadpool has showcased his impressive super strength when at one point, he stood up straight, without aid! Based on Deadpool's canon weight and examining the distribution of mass here, we can deduce his legs can support 210 pounds, or just under a hundred kilograms.

Deadpool: Wait, what?

Boomstick: Oh! Or how about the time he held up this pistol. That's a Desert Eagle Mark 19, which weighs 72 whole ounces. Amazing.

Deadpool: Guys, what the hell? You know I can kick people through concrete walls and yank around a six-ton helicopter, right?

Wiz: Here we can see him running, much like typical human beings run, and the average male running speed is about 9.4 kilometers per hour.

Deadpool: Hey, hey! I was outrunning a goddamn airplane! Do you know how fast airplanes are?! Jesus H. Christ almighty, do some research for once, you frauds!

We cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: Jokes aside, Deadpool can move faster than the eye can track. He's caught Captain America's shield, which Cap can throw fast enough to slice through tanks. He's even dodged the electric-powered mutant Surge's lightning blasts. If these are anything like the leaders of real lightning, they could be moving over 98,000 meters per second.

Boomstick: Deadpool's a tough son of a bitch, too. He's survived a sunburn from a freaking space laser, getting crushed under the Chrysler Building, and an explosion that cratered an entire city block! Just look at the size of that!

Wiz: Measuring the crater's volume and applying statistics for pulverization of rock, the explosion must've equaled about 130 tons of TNT.

Boomstick: That's like gettin' hit in the face with 22 monster trucks driving at top speed, all at the same time!

Wiz: But Deadpool isn't perfect. Far from it, obviously. Unlike Wolverine, his chemically induced healing factor isn't a natural evolution, and so it seriously damaged his brain... which explains a lot.

Boomstick: This guy isn't just annoying as balls. He's legit insane. Talk about a terrible combination.

Wiz: Well, Deadpool's insanity leads him to talk to seemingly invisible people, namely the writers and editors of each comic book he's in.

Boomstick: I mean, is it really insanity if it's true? That's even how he got rid of the Continuity Gem, by literally handing it over to the editors.

Wiz: While his broken mind and daredevil attitude makes him incredibly unpredictable, it can often put him in over his head. Plus, while his healing factor is quite potent, it's not an instant quick fix.

Boomstick: That's why he prefers to reattach his limbs, rather than wait for them to regrow.


Blind Al: Am I crazy, or is your hand really small?


Wiz: That's... not pleasant.

Boomstick: His biggest weakness though is that he's a dumb internet meme and he should feel bad about it!

Wiz: And using this mathematical formula, taking account of Deadpool's abundance in media, we can quantify exactly how dumb he is.

The equation Wiz is talking about is promptly shown on-screen:

Memes + cringe + LMAO + Ryan Reynolds
+ Deathstroke rip-off ÷ Unicorn fetish ÷
oversaturation x chimichangas x
Rob Liefeld x Takahata101 x actual cancer
÷ cosplayed more than Harley Quinn
Lies = Deadpool, disgust= Deadpool, trash = Deadpool
N = Y where hope, N = truth and, Y = Deadpool

Deadpool: You know, I've done this Death Battle bullshit three times now, and can I just say, I hope you douchebags NEVER change. I love it! I'll be over there, chomping on popcorn and chimichangas while your heads explode trying to figure out how I could possibly lose this one. Toodles!

Wiz: Good riddance.

Boomstick: Deadpool may be an annoying clown who has menaced Marvel's good and bad sides for decades, but he's also had sex with my mom over a hundred times and made her moan li— hey, hey, who changed the prompter!?

Deadpool: (wildly whooping ala Curly Howard)

Boomstick: COME BACK HERE, YOU SON OF A BITCH!

Matter of Fact
by Terry Devine-King

Wiz: Psychologist Carl Jung once described the persona as "a kind of mask", designed on the one hand, to make a definite impression on others, and on the other, to conceal the true nature of the individual.

Boomstick: Uh... right!

Wiz: Basically, who we are on the inside is different than who we are on the outside. But what if putting on a mask could actually reveal what was underneath it?

Boomstick: Underneath the mask? Y-you mean your face?

Wiz: I... don't even know how to start to answer that.

Boomstick: Use your mouth, it's on your face. Well, while Wiz is trying to figure out how masks work... dumbass... let's talk about one mask in particular: the Mask.

Wiz: Its origins are shrouded in mystery. Some say it was used as a part of an African tribal ritual. Others say it was created by Loki, the Norse God of Mischief.

Boomstick: Who knows and who cares? It wound up in the hands of Stanley Ipkiss, the schlubbiest, dorkiest loser this side of Deadpool.

Deadpool: (off-screen) Regenerating degenerates have feelings too, you know!

Wiz: Curious, Stanley donned the mask, and was transformed from an everyman to a superman.


The Mask: Sssssmokin'!


Wiz: And now he's a big green cartoon character the media dubbed "Big Head".

Boomstick: But, you can just call him "The Mask". With his newfound powers, Stanley would take on the mob, get the girl, and live happily ever after, right?

Wiz: Don't let the family movie fool you. Sorry, movies. I always forget that second one.

Boomstick: Don't blame ya. This ain't your silly Steamboat Willie shenanigans. Get ready for some good old-fashioned hardcore violence!

Wiz: See, the mask itself is alive, and it desires nothing more than absolute carnage. By tapping into its wearer's repressed id, it can turn a nebbish nobody like Stanley into a rampaging serial killer.

Boomstick: Complete with Bugs Bunny powers! Horrifying...

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Wiz: Meta-fictional combat scientists, like myself, have long speculated about a unifying theory that could explain the source of the Mask's powers. We call this phenomenon "Toon Force". Think of characters such as Bugs Bunny, Popeye, and Michael Jordan. A being that wields Toon Force seems capable of accomplishing almost anything they desire so long as they find it humorous. With this power, The Mask can manipulate the laws of physics whenever he likes, even breaking the 4th wall.

Boomstick: Oh god, no, he can break it, too? You never said anything about that. And now we've got two of 'em.

Pinkie Pie's hoove pops out of nowhere.

Pinkie Pie: Don't forget about meeeee!

Boomstick punches Pinkie Pie, causing confetti to spray out from her direction.

Boomstick: TWO of them.

We cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: Ahem, regardless, Toon Force allows the Mask to summon any kind of weapon imaginable from thin air.

Boomstick: Everything from oversized guns and rocket launchers, to whoopee cushions, dynamite, anvils, hell, anything from the good fellas at ACME.

Wiz: Toon Force users can manipulate their bodies in any way they like, whether it be stretching their limbs, inflating themselves like a balloon, or shape-shifting into giant monsters.

Boomstick: And best of all, ya can't really hurt a Toon. Well, at least not in the normal way.

Wiz: Right. It's not that the Mask has a specific healing factor or some such; it's more like he can just say "no" to damage.

Boomstick: He's had holes blown in him, had his head cut off, stripped his own flesh from his bones, and was blown up into a bloody pulp. He can outpace Lobo, remember him? 'Cause he doesn't need to wait for his body to heal. It just happens!

Wiz: However, the scariest thing about the Mask's use of Toon Force is how it affects the world around him. In most cases, the rules of Toon Force are applied to the user and whomever or whatever the force is affecting.

Boomstick: This even happens in the movie. Man, look at her go!


The Mask spins Tina Carlyle around so fast she becomes a whirlwind.

Follow That Car
by Tim Garland

Wiz: But in the true canon of The Mask, this is not the case. And this leads to some, well... horrific imagery. The Mask can pick up cars and knock over buildings with ease. He can dodge point-blank bullets and run fast enough to set the ground on fire. He has survived massive explosions, giant robots, and being kicked in the testicles so hard, he flew.

Boomstick: Out of all the gore in those comics, that is the worst thing I've seen yet. But, remember what we said before about him fighting Lobo, the guy who ate a city?

Wiz: At one point, Lobo and the Mask raced around the entire planet several times in the span of just a few seconds, and then crashed into each other in an absolutely gargantuan blast. Based on their after trail rings, and given an estimated timeframe of less than half a minute, which fits given the context, they must have been going over nine million meters per second.

Boomstick: Ah, what a couple of scamps.

Wiz: There's only one way to really stop the Mask, and that's by removing the mask itself.

Boomstick: Good luck trying! The only way is if the wearer has already decided to let it come off. And with the power it gives, who'd want to?

Wiz: Technically, the conscience of the person the Mask possesses still exists, and could be reasoned with or tricked into removing the mask.

Boomstick: Like when Lobo threw a guilt bomb at him after he murdered hundreds of people.

Wiz: But the mask itself has an astronomically powerful influence on its host.

Boomstick: Right. I mean, who doesn't like letting loose every once in a while? We've covered a lot of vicious murderers on the show, but I've never seen one who has as much fun with it as the Mask.


The Mask: Let's rock this joint!

Death Battle

We see a close-up of a tall building before quickly panning to the top of it. Suddenly, we see Deadpool crashing through a window as he reaches out to grab the enchanted mask. The moment then turns to slow-motion.

Deadpool: Yup, that's me. You're probably wondering how I got in this mess. Buuuut, there's only enough funding for a few minutes of animation, so we're skipping that part.

The slow-motion ends as Deadpool falls down while imitating Goofy's iconic yell. He ends up crashing through the top of a passing bus with the mask underneath, leaving a Deadpool-shaped hole in the roof.

Suddenly, the bus explodes and a green tornado catches Deadpool and throws him to an alleyway. After moving from side to side, the tornado clears up, the Mask now in its place.

The Mask: Ssssmokin'!

Deadpool gets up from the alleyway.

Deadpool: Alright, Majora's mistake! You got one chance to take that off!

Deadpool brings out his guns, briefly shocking the Mask before drops the expression and quickly brings out his own guns, only for them to be balloon guns. The green-faced lunatic then blows them up till they pop, turning into multiple real firearms.

The Mask: Penis metaphooor!

He unloads all his ammo at the mercenary with overkill.

Deadpool: Huh?

Deadpool gets shot in the chest, but the wound quickly heals in seconds. Wade then brings out his twin katanas and slices through the Mask's firearms and his neck, sending his head flying into the air until it lands backward on his neck while his hat flies off. He turns his body around and spins his arm, ready to attack back.

The Mask: Woo! What a ride!

Deadpool sighs in irritation before getting punched by the Mask's now-existent boxing glove. He then punches again, sending Deadpool's face into the camera with enough force to crack it slightly before he moves to his left, his head turning into Ivan Drago as he passes by Wade.

The Mask: (impersonating Drago) I must break you.

Deadpool winces and puts his arms in front of his face to protect himself, but the Mask stretches his arm to the left side of the screen and hits Wade with a right cross before following it up with a surprise left cross, both punches sending Deadpool's face into the camera again and causing more cracks upon impact. Deadpool then sees an opportunity to turn the fight around as he readjusts the camera and dives through the fragile screen, quite literally breaking the fourth wall. The Mask is left alone for only a moment in perplexity until Deadpool returns with the Continuity Gem.

Deadpool: Got it!

The Mask puts on a pair of nerd glasses and suddently gets up close with the Gem.

The Mask: (in a nerdy voice) ACTUALLY, that's not canon!

Deadpool then climbs back onto the street.

Deadpool: Let's just say... I know the right people. With this Continuity Gem, I can rewrite anything I need fixing.

Deadpool raises the Continuity Gem above his head as the background changes from the street to a radial purple gradient with white circuit lines. As he continues to talk, the endings of several previous Death Battle episodes are seen circling around Deadpool, their endings being rewritten to make their respective losers win thanks to the Gem.

Deadpool: I could stop Hitler from being born, rewrite the Star Wars prequels, or even make you take off that mask!

Shocked at Deadpool's last remark, the Mask's hands suddenly reach up and begin to pull on his face against his will.

The Mask: Nnnnoooo! Stop it! Nooooooo!

Deadpool: This... is over.

He snaps his fingers and the screen instantly turns white. After a brief silence, Deadpool and the Mask walk back into frame, only now as storyboard drawings animated in still frames and lines to denote activity as they look around.

The Mask: Oh-ho-ho, wow! You weren't kidding!

Deadpool: Aw, beans! We're in the storyboards?!

The Mask: Oh chum, I think that zany stunt of yours ran out the budget.

He opens his pocket, only for a moth to fly out.

The Mask: Can't make the scene if you don't have the green. Lucky for you...

He pulls in a light bulb and places it over his head.

The Mask: ...I have an idea!

Together, and restricted to cheap live-action cosplay, the pair concoct a number of inane schemes to raise some additional money. From door-to-door salesmanship (culminating in Wade raising a gun at a rejecting buyer, which Mask forces him to lower), to selling Wade's bathwater, to streaming themselves playing Fortnite and asking for donations, and playing competitive poker against a fellow struggling superhero. Finally, as Wade searches the couch of a guy's home, who the Mask has at gunpoint, he finds a dollar.

Deadpool: Ah, that's it! Honeybun, we're good to go!

The Mask gives a thumbs up. A lightning strike then cuts the fight back into animation, where the two are now in a western standoff under a stormy sky in a desert. They glare each other down ready to draw, but instead of guns, they both pull out a Continuity Gem.

Deadpool: What? Where'd you get that?

The Mask: Oh-ho-ho, Jack. I'm already wearing it!

He tosses his Continuity Gem aside and laughs maniacally as his head grows and turns more freaky, with it briefly flashing into a caricature of Deadpool's face in time with a lightning strike. His opponent, by contrast, looks on sadly as the camera zooms into Deadpool's eye, fading to back as it closes.

Deadpool: (singing to the tune of "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid)Look at this guy, he isn't me. Although the Internet thinks he might be. Perhaps I've gone too far, far from my reality.

He seals the Continuity Gem in an envelope and lets a postman Mask whisk it away.

Deadpool: ♫I'll do this right, I'm not a joke, what even is a chimichangaaaaa—

As he sings, a spotlight is shined down upon Deadpool, who pulls out one of his katanas in one hand and a gun in the other, determined to take the fight seriously. Suddenly, rumba music begins playing, overriding the music as the Mask, now donning a samba attire and maracas, shimmies towards Deadpool, turning his maracas into chainsaws as he does so. The two then start fighting once more, pacing every step and action to the rumba beat, including a few shots from Deadpool.

The Mask then knocks Deadpool's katana out of his grasp, but Deadpool still refuses to give in, firing a volley of bullets that are only absorbed by The Mask. After munching them, said rounds are then spat back out, punching numerous holes in Wade, who has both arms shorn off in a clean upward strike from the Mask's chainsaws. The Mask then spins his body and shreds Deadpool's torso, sending his head flying into the air before it flies back down (paralleling the earlier scene of the Mask's head flying off his body) and gets caught by the Mask before it hits the ground.

Deadpool: Fuck you.

The Mask pulls a giant nuke with the words "Fat Lady" spray-painted on it out of his pocket and holds a magnifying glass to the timer, which counts down from five seconds.

The Mask: Indeed...

The countdown finishes, but nothing happens. The two look at each other before the Mask taps the nuke, at which point it goes off in a mammoth explosion. After the dust settles, we see two piles of dust in the colors of Deadpool and the Mask, both of which are then blown away by a fan next to the real Mask, who is reclining in a lounge chair as his hat floats back onto his head. The screen irises out as the Mask lets out a victorious laugh, but he holds it open to deliver one final message.

The Mask: Who's next?!

He then lets the screen finish closing up, signaling the end of the fight.

Boomstick: Yes! He's gone! He's finally gone! He can never bother us again!

He pauses.

Boomstick: ...Why don't I feel as awesome as I should?

Wiz: To be fair, given his more robust history, Deadpool held a solid advantage in experience and skill. He was relatively smarter and more... uh... mentally put together in comparison. So it's possible he could've outsmarted the Mask... if given the chance.

Boomstick: Yeah, except that chance was never gonna come. He had some really cool feats of strength and speed, but the Mask blew him out of the water. Like, who cares that Deadpool pulled around a six-ton copter when the Mask knocked over a building weighing over a thousand tons? And comparing their speed, he's a hundred times faster, too. Like, there's no contest!

Wiz: Not to mention, the size of the blast from the Mask and Lobo's collision equals 322 teratons of TNT. Trillions of times greater than Deadpool's asteroid feat.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: We pit Deadpool against a cartoon god. Like you said, the Mask could just say "no" to damage. Deadpool couldn't even really hurt him! This whole thing was a blowout, a... total stomp.

Wiz: No... I mean... I guess you're right. We're supposed to be impartial and... we went too far. But Boomstick, it-it's too late to change it.

Boomstick: There's no way to Mask what we've done.

Wiz: The winner is...

Before Wiz can finish, the Mask's arm comes out of the Death Battle Lab's monitor, slapping the letter Deadpool mailed during the fight into Boomstick's face.

Boomstick: Ugh, the hell?

He opens it. As Deadpool's voice reads the contents of the letter, a monochromatic montage of scenes from Deadpool's various appearances on the show (including a brief clip from this episode's very fight) plays on-screen.

Deadpool's voice: Dear Wiz and Boomstick, I know our relationship has been a rocky one. But I just wanted to say... thanks. Thanks for helping me rediscover who I am. Who I really am. The past decade of memes and cosplays and Hot Topic shirts changed me, and I couldn't see it on my own. You made me remember my true self, missing feet and all. And with some help from this royalty-free Sarah McLachlan rip-off song, I hope you can find, in your hearts, your true selves, too. Sayonara, Death Battle. Sayonara.

The music stops slowly as we fade back to Boomstick, who's now teary-eyed. Wiz takes the letter to read it himself.

Boomstick: I can't believe I'm saying this Wiz, but... I wish he was still around!

Wiz: Yeah... Me too...

Boomstick shakes the envelope, causing the Continuity Gem to fall into his hand. The two hosts quickly realize what's about to happen.

Wiz: OH NO!!!

Suddenly, Deadpool appears in between the hosts in a flash of light, back from the dead thanks to Wiz and Boomstick's wish.

Deadpool: OH YEAH!!!!

Boomstick: OH GOD, I TAKE IT BACK, I TAKE IT BACK!!!

Wiz and Boomstick scream in fear and make a run for it while the Mask's arm appears from the bottom of the screen and pulls down an image of himself, with the "Winner" card then appearing in front of it.

The Mask: The winner... is me! Hahahaha!

Original Track

YouTube IconSpotify Icon
Goodbye, Chimichanga

Composition

The track for this fight is "Goodbye, Chimichanga" by Therewolf Media. It starts as a fast-paced jazzy piece reminiscent of mobster fight scenes before it starts switching genres, from a casual acoustic guitar to wild west standoff fiddles, somber orchestra (the music of "Part of Your World"), conga music, and finally a casual tropical theme, complementing the fight and reflecting the random and brutal personalities both Deadpool and the Mask display.

Title

The title refers to Deadpool's association with chimichangas and reflects how Wiz and Boomstick planned this fight to get rid of him once and for all.

Cover Art

The cover art done by Luis Cruz depicts Deadpool's face on a circular green spiral (presumably a reference to the Mask's tornado that is primarily seen whenever he transforms) surrounded by knives.

Trivia

Production

  • The connections between Deadpool and the Mask are that they are both comedic comic book anti-heroes with the ability to break the fourth wall. Both were once ordinary people before gaining superpowers (a healing factor and the powers of the Mask, respectively) which turned them insane, giving them a sense of absurd and violent humor, and turning them into incredibly brutal fighters that are nearly impossible to kill.
  • The crew originally wanted to bring back Javier Ulloa and Shelbie Copas (the animators of the Bendy VS Cuphead DBX) to work on this fight. However, they could not make time for it and the fight was instead handed to an in-house traditional team at Rooster Teeth.
  • This episode was foreshadowed in Ghost Rider VS Lobo, in which Wiz swore that he would kill Deadpool someday after his intrusion in Lobo's analysis cutaway.

Easter Eggs

  • In Deadpool's analysis, the mathematical formula Wiz used to calculate how dumb Deadpool is is a parody of Darkseid's Anti-Life Equation.
  • During the battle, Deadpool shows potential alternate endings to several controversial episodes that have happened in the past using the Continuity Gem, namely the following:
  • As the Mask explains to Deadpool how him using the Continuity Gem used up all of the animation budget, he pulls his pants pocket out, only for a moth to fly out of it and him to say "Can't make the scene if you don't have the green." afterwards, referencing this scene from the movie.
  • Deadpool singing a parody of "Part of Your World" may be a reference to Deadpool The Musical 2 - Ultimate Disney Parody!, where he parodies the same song.
  • The atomic bomb the Mask pulls out at the end of the fight is labeled "Fat Lady", a reference to both the Fat Man bomb that was detonated over Nagasaki and the phrase "It isn't over until the fat lady sings."
    • The words "Chick Chicka Boom" seen on the countdown screen of the bomb after the countdown is finished are a reference to the Cuban Pete song the Mask sings during the movie.
  • Deadpool's note ending with "Sayonara, Death Battle. Sayonara." may be a reference to Vegeta VS Shadow and Mewtwo VS Shadow, as "Sayonara." was the ending line used by both Vegeta and Mewtwo when they killed Shadow (who, like Deadpool, was also voiced by Curtis Arnott).

Errors

  • In Deadpool's analysis, the last line of the mathematical formula Wiz used to calculate how dumb Deadpool is reads, "N = Y where hope, N = truth and, Y = Deadpool". The "hope" is out of place and does not fit into the equation; since this formula is a parody of Darkseid's Anti-Life Equation, this mistake was likely a result of copying the line "N=Y WHERE Y=HOPE AND N=FOLLY" and forgetting to remove the word.
  • The Mask argues (parodying a typical comic nerd) that Deadpool shouldn't have the Continuity Gem because "that's not canon", despite the story it made its only appearance in being set in Earth-616's continuity and the Deadpool who used it being the main incarnation.
    • Ironically, the pop-up box during the post-analysis would treat Deadpool's Carbonadium Swords as an option that would need to be addressed, despite those actually being non-canon (as they were only used by Dreadpool from Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe).
