The Death Battle Membership is Death Battle's paid YouTube membership which allows for access to exclusive content and permissions. Members are known as Death Battle Champions.

The membership can be joined by going to the Death Battle YouTube channel and clicking the "Join" button in the top right corner. There are three different membership tiers, all with different prices and perks. The prices on this page are all in USD, and may vary in other countries.

On March 6th, 2024, it was announced that Death Battle's owner and production company, Rooster Teeth, would be shut down by its parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.[1] As a result, Ben Singer has currently advised people not to buy or gift new memberships as the Death Battle crew work out future plans for the show in the meantime.[2]

Membership Levels and Perks

Base Level Champion

This tier is $2.99 per month. It grants the following:

  • Access to the official DEATH BATTLE! Discord
    • Champions' Ballots:
      • Champion's Polls: At the end of Season 9, members were able to submit matchups into a ballot in the Discord server to potentially become episodes, from which the crew then selected some and put into two polls that members could vote in, with the winning matchups becoming episodes in Season 10; one animated in 2D and one animated in 3D (although it was originally meant to be a singular poll, regardless of animation style). Visit here for more information on Season 10's Champion's Polls.
      • Tournament of Champions: Halfway through Season 10, members were able to submit matchups into a ballot in the Discord server to potentially become episodes, from which the crew will select a total of 32 and put into a tournament that members can vote in, with the winning matchup becoming an episode in Season 11. Visit here for more information on Season 11's Tournament of Champions.

Trivia

  • Originally, one of the perks for Planet Level Champions and above was early access to new Death Battle episodes and their analysis previews, just like with Rooster Teeth FIRST Members, starting with Gogeta VS Vegito. However, it was internally speculated that these early releases negatively affected the overall performance of Season 10's episodes on YouTube. After testing a lack of early releases from Frieza VS Megatron to Scooby-Doo VS Courage the Cowardly Dog to see the potential difference, the early release perk was removed for both Champions and FIRST Members going forward.[3]
