Instead of the typical opener, we cut to Wiz and Boomstick in a forest at night alongside Ringmaster, DUMMI, and Jocelyn sitting in front of a campfire, with the two main co-hosts presenting this show as a campfire horror story. Boomstick lights up a flashlight while Wiz adjusts his robot arm to flash a light on himself.

Boomstick: Prepare yourselves, it's time we tell the tale of Crystal Lake's masked murderer, Jason Voorhees...

Wiz: And the horrifying Boogeyman of Haddonfield, Michael Myers...

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boooomstick!

Wiz: And it's our job to bring terror and fright on this Halloween night... on Death Battle.

Boomstick: Within the woods of Crystal Lake lurks a killer, buried but not dead. Doomed to rise from the grave and slaughter those who live and uh, love, if ya know what I mean.

Wiz: This is the curse of Jason Voorhees.

Boomstick: Rumor has it he was a deformed child, bullied and harassed all of his life, only cared for by his single mother. But not even Mama Voorhees could save Jason when he tragically drowned at Camp Crystal Lake... or did he?

Wiz: Over time, Crystal Lake became wrought with strange disappearances and violent deaths.

Boomstick: Including the camp counselors who should've been watching Jason when he drowned all those years ago. Someone, or something, dot-dot-dot, was out for vengeance.

Wiz: And yet, these harrowing murders were committed by none other than Jason's own mother, Pamela Voorhees. Seeking revenge against those who neglected her child, dooming him to his terrible end.

Boomstick: That... actually makes a lotta sense. G-g-good for her, I...I guess.

Wiz: However, even after her killing spree was cut short, the deaths continued. Nobody could prove it, but maybe, just maybe, Jason was still alive.

Boomstick: Holy shit! Yeah, he's definitely alive. Wait, has he been living in the lake this whole time?

Wiz: Jason has fortitude far beyond any normal man. You can swing an axe in his face, blast half his body away, or trap him in an exploding building, yet it will all be in vain.

Boomstick: Even when one of the few survivors of his attacks hacked him to pieces, Jason rose again. Seriously, this happens a lot.

Wiz: Nobody knows the true source of his unkillable nature. Some say it's an indigenous curse, others say it's the Necronomicon, and some even say it's a hellworm. So, not too many reasonable answers.

Boomstick: Either way, be careful, or you just might end up on the wrong side of Jason's trusty machete, somethin' he uses with enough strength to split skulls and pierce metal.

Wiz: Even when Jason has no weapon, he can be resourceful and oddly creative with his kills. He might bludgeon you to death with a sleeping bag, drown you in a garbage can...

Wiz: Or snap you in half between a bed fold.

Boomstick: Worst of all, this demented mama's boy will always get his prey. Oh, you think you can run away? Well, think again, idiot! He can teleport!

Wiz: N-No, he can't.

Boomstick: Oh, yeah? Well, how about the time he appeared in multiple places at once around this dance floor? See? Teleporting.

Wiz: Wrong. Hallucinations resulting from a mix of cocaine and panic.

Boomstick: Okay, smart-ass. How about when he teleported from one end of this ship to another? How'd he get there?

Wiz: Ahem, actually, when watching the full scene for complete context, there is plenty of time afforded for Jason to jump down the deck while off-camera. He is quite athletic, after all.

Boomstick: What, without making any sound? The guy's built like he's made of a hundred brick houses! Are we watching the same movie?

Wiz: Look, fans have argued this for years, and while admittedly those moments are... questionable, they're not enough to prove actual teleportation.

Boomstick: Okay, how about this one? In Jason X, where three soldiers are shooting him straight on, and he just disappears! Poof! Gone! While they're looking right at him, goddammit, it's teleporting!

Wiz: Well, I-I'm sure there's a logical explanation.

We cut to everyone at the campfire.

DUMMI: I just stared at this scene while processing 900 trillion frames per second, and Boomstick is correct.

Boomstick: Ha!

DUMMI: Also, now my eyes are broken. Joy.

His eye lights flicker on and off before they disappear entirely.

Ringmaster: Y'know, uh, Jason can actually teleport in the video game, so, uh... I believe it.

Wiz: I suppose teleporting would explain how, despite his hulking size, Jason can move with ghostly silence and pick off victims one by one. Are you sure about this, DUMMI?

We cut to the wide shot of the campfire, where DUMMI has mysteriously disappeared.

Wiz: DUMMI...?

An owl's hoot is heard as everyone stares at each other worryingly before we cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: Either way, Jason's unstoppable bloodlust makes him a horrifying threat.

Boomstick: Even if you think you're protected by a foot of solid steel, he'll just crash through it to stab you!

Wiz: And though it's tough to believe, there may actually be a deadlier Jason out there, too.

Boomstick: Stronger, faster, and campier! This is Über Jason. Rebuilt from Jason's remains through a sinister fusion of science and mysticism. And guess what? Normal Jason later fought Über Jason and actually held his own! Yeah, the comics get kinda wacky, just... go with it.

Wiz: Only natural for a monster that has fought other supernatural entities.

Boomstick: Like Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, and groovy man himself, Ash Williams!

Wiz: Indeed. So be warned, if you ever see a shadow moving through the darkness, and hear a familiar "chi chi chi, ah ah ah", RUN. Jason is out to find you, and chances are, you are not leaving alive.

Michael Myers

Stalker

Wiz: On a bleak Halloween night, Michael Myers was born into the world as a seemingly normal child. However, beneath his pale blank face hid something... dark. Something... evil.

Boomstick: How evil? Well, he stabbed his sister Judy to death when he was just six years old. Ah, what a rascal.

Wiz: Michael was institutionalized at a sanitarium, where he simply... sat still, almost like a machine. His psychiatrist, Dr. Loomis, spent eight years trying to reach him, but Michael never said a word.

Boomstick: But even when locked up, he still managed to get away with several murders, including Loomis' fiancée. There was no helping or stopping Michael. More than anything, he wanted to kill.

Wiz: After 15 years, the night before Halloween, he broke out of the sanitarium, leaving behind one word: "Sister".

Boomstick: The story goes, Michael had another sibling: Laurie. And for some unknowable reason, he wanted her to suffer the same fate as Judy. A-and everyone else really, uh, he's not too picky. And he could do it, too!

Wiz: For in his hands, anything can be a deadly weapon. Countless reports of various murders have appeared across Haddonfield. He's exploded heads, boiled people alive, and used his trademark knife to stab poor souls to walls like some macabre piece of art.

Boomstick: When they say, "To admire your work", I don't think this is what they meant. And this isn't some special combat knife or dagger, he did this with an ordinary kitchen knife.

Wiz: Michael is also surprisingly clever. Despite being confined for nearly all his life, at some point, he apparently taught himself how to drive.

Boomstick: It's pretty clear this masked psycho was definitely plotting something while he was in the ward.

Wiz: All these kills were just a detour to his ultimate goal: Laurie. On an all-too-familiar Halloween night, he finally met his long-lost sister and nearly killed her.

Boomstick: But Loomis intervened, shooting Michael and sending him out a window. Phew, well, guess that's the end of him... Yeah, you know it's not.

Wiz: No one knows how, but the body simply... vanished. Only to return later that night as if nothing had happened.

Boomstick: There's a reason why they call him the Boogeyman.

Wiz: Even after being set on fire and rendered comatose, Michael Myers would not be stopped.

Boomstick: Almost like he's some kind of invincible undead monster!

We cut to everyone at the campfire.

Jocelyn: Many explanations have been given for Michael's strange abilities, but some less reputable sources suggest he's bound to the ancient Druidic Curse of Thorn. Whose symbol is, well, they say it's an ancient icon of Halloween, but it's actually the Norse rune for Thor...? Sometimes called the Thorn Rune? (scoffs) I think they just Googled "rune" and "Thorn" and called it a day.

As she says the last remark, Jocelyn has a hologram of the rune displayed via her watch before she shuts it off.

Ringmaster: Wh-wh-wh-wh-wh-whoa. Is Michael Myers, a-a viking? Yes! Awesome! (chuckles)

Wiz: Ahem, curse or no curse, Michael is inexplicably driven to kill without hesitation, and his victims almost never see him coming.

Wiz hears a small stick-breaking sound. We then cut to the wide shot of the campfire, where Ringmaster has also mysteriously disappeared, the Nintendo Switch he had throughout the episode left where he once sat.

Boomstick: Ahaha, you said cu— uh, oh.

He finally notices his friend Marshall has disappeared too before we cut back to the analysis.

Fear of the Light
by Philippe Briand

Wiz: Well, explaining Michael away with a vague curse is nothing more than a crutch for the truth. The fact of the matter is, no one knows why he is so cruel, so violent, so unstoppable. He just... is.

Boomstick: At the end of the day, evil gives no explanation, only despair.

Wiz: Michael thrives not just on the satisfaction of murder, but the fear it inflicts in others.

Boomstick: Even scarier, his kills are done with surgical precision. He can murder you as quickly or slowly as he wants. This guy knows exactly what he's doin' with that kitchen knife. He's like a hibachi chef of death.

Wiz: And yet, his attacks were almost brought to an end by Laurie herself. But when the time came for the final blow, Michael proved his intelligence and wit by faking his own death using a body double.

Boomstick: All while getting his sister to commit murder for him. Honestly, I'm-I'm kind of impressed.

Wiz: He's also either impossibly sneaky, or he can use... ugh, teleportation. Because he once moved through a yard full of motion sensors without setting off a single one, until he wanted to.

Boomstick: Look at this! There's just no stopping him. Fill him full of bullets? Michael will come back ready to rip off your head. Put him in the center of an exploding church? He'll survive and go on to kill dozens more people, just for dramatic effect.

Wiz: It was this relentless evil that made the people of Haddonfield go ballistic and band together to end Michael Myers once and for all.

Boomstick: Unfortunately, the town would soon realize that was just not possible.

Wiz: Any ordinary person would have been long dead after what he experienced, but he took all of the town's punishment, got right back up, and went right back to doing what he does best.

Boomstick: And you know what's the creepiest part about all this? They never caught him. He's... still out there, looking for his next prey, I assume.

Wiz: So, every Halloween night, lock your doors, turn off your lights, and pray you'll make it to morning, because the Boogeyman is real, and his name is Michael Myers.

Prelude

Wiz: Alright, the tales have been told and terror runs free. Let's see which monster will stalk another day.

Boomstick: IT'S TIME FOR A SPOOOOKY DEATH BATTLE~!!!

He laughs in an evil fashion only to fall into a coughing fit soon after as the Death Battle transition card closes over.

T.G.I.H. (Thank God It's Halloween)
by Therewolf Media
YouTube IconSpotify Icon

Deep in the black moonlit woods of a fateful Halloween night within Camp Crystal Lake, a figure is seen dragging a body in a sleeping bag through the local cemetery, with a machete dug into the victim. Alongside this, an otherworldly voice is heard speaking...

Pamela Voorhees: Mother's talking to you... The blackest eyes, the devil's eyes... Kill her... kill her...

A feminine scream is heard echoing immediately after, and the scene cuts to a blood-covered camp counselor fleeing to a car under a road light. Tripping briefly and falling onto the hood, the young panting girl looks back to see a man who caught up with her. He approaches the counselor, who screams one last time before he soullessly butchers her. He then stares as she drops dead to the ground, blood oozing out of her corpse.

Meanwhile, the figure dragging his victim in the sleeping bag comes to a stop and pulls out his machete before turning to see the dead counselor beneath the car, with her killer nowhere to be seen. As the masked Crystal Lake revenant of Jason Voorhees looks on with a dead gaze, he can only notice from behind his shoulder as the pale-faced Boogeyman, Michael Myers, approaches from the dark to stab him in the back with his knife.

Michael plunges his blade into Jason's back. Utterly unfazed by the sneak attack, he slashes at Myers with his machete, who blocks it with his knife in turn. Voorhees kicks Myers in the chest, while Michael quickly responds with another stab. Jason takes another frenzied slash at Michael, but he is prepared this time, dodging it with ease and delivering a stab and slash combo that knocks Jason's machete from his hand. Jason repels him by swinging a corpse, before shoulder-charging him into a tree.

Michael turns the tables, shoving Jason against the tree and stabbing him in the gut. Jason grasps at Michael's mask, trying to put up a defense, but Michael brutally and repeatedly impales him, with the final stab pinning him to the tree. As Michael admires his work, a surviving counselor emerges from the woods, looking for the girl who was just slaughtered, unaware of her demise.

Sam: Alex! Where are you?! We gotta go!

Unfortunately, all he does is draw the attention of the seemingly victorious Michael, who slowly begins to walk after him as he flees in the other direction. Unbeknownst to him, Jason's finger twitches.

The counselor runs as hard as he can through the forest, desperately trying to escape Michael. He runs past an axe that has been embedded into a stump, with Myers following closely behind him. He removes the axe with sadistic satisfaction and continues to shadow his prey.

The counselor's stamina finally runs out and as he takes deep breaths in a clearing, he scans the area searching for the slasher. He sees nothing, but the iconic breathing of Michael Myers grows until he emerges from the shadows and wounds the counselor with a slash to the back, becoming soaked in blood in the process.

Reinvigorated, the counselor continues to flee, unknowingly running past the tree where Myers' knife remains embedded with its supposed victim nowhere in sight. He clambers into his car in a desperate attempt to escape...

Sam: Come on, come on!

... but his efforts to start the vehicle are in vain as the still-alive Jason Voorhees pulls him out through the window. As Jason holds him by his neck and tries to deliver the coup-de-grace, Michael intervenes. Having retrieved his knife, he stabs Jason in the back and forces him to relinquish his would-be victim. Enraged at yet another denied kill, he focuses on Myers. The two masked slashers hack away at each other, as the counselor scrambles to the cemetery and takes refuge behind a tombstone.

The sounds of fighting slowly fade and the counselor breathes a sigh of relief and rests his head against the grave... until Jason's machete bursts through and impales the unfortunate man through the neck. Having attained his kill, Jason turns his attention to Michael attempting another sneak attack with the axe. This time, he manages to catch Myers' axe and tosses his weapon away, embedding it into a nearby rock.

He slashes at Michael's chest, but Myers manages to dodge his attack again, before retaliating by smashing Jason over the head with a headstone. He narrowly manages to avoid being impaled by the point of the axe, but dazed and wounded, he finds himself being pushed towards it by Michael. As he resists Myers' attempts to end him, he begins to hallucinate his beloved mother's voice and sees her grave nearby, with her severed head replacing a jack-o'-lantern.

Pamela Voorhees: Kill him, Jason! Kill him! Make mother proud!

Finding strength in his mother's orders, he whips the back of his head into Myers' face, stunning him long enough for Jason to run him through with his machete. However, Myers' own endurance allows him to plunge his knife through the top of Voorhees' head. While the attack disorients Jason, Michael is too wounded to capitalize.

Clutching his impaled stomach, he reaches forward trying to grab his knife to end Jason, but he is too slow; Jason recovers in time and manages to retrieve the axe, plunging it into Myers' head. Allowing Michael no quarter, he pulls the knife out of his head and swiftly slices Myers' head from his body, sending it flying.

Watching Michael's decapitated corpse collapses to the ground, Jason retrieves the axe with Myers' head still attached. Unwilling to take any chances and angered by the trouble that Michael gave him throughout, he slams the axe down on a grave, splitting the head in half and guaranteeing the end of Michael Myers.

Satisfied, Jason Voorhees walks off into the foggy woods, accompanied by eerie whispers and awaiting the next time anyone is foolish enough to trespass.

Boomstick: Okay, are we SURE he's dead? Ya' can't be too careful with these guys.

Wiz: Michael Myers won't be rising from the grave this time; Jason was too much for him. The stories may paint these slashers as unstoppable, but they do have limits, and can be understood.

Boomstick: To Michael's credit, he could match Jason in a lot of ways. Both were experts in methods of killing, and both could totally teleport!

Wiz: Theoretically. Though, if both of them really could teleport, then neither had an advantage in that regard. So, teleportation deniers can rest easy knowing it wasn't really a factor here.

Boomstick: Even the explosions they both survived were similar in size and destructibility.

Wiz: But Jason held the edge with his superior endurance and healing. Michael faking his death with a body double was clever, but he did it because he explicitly could not survive something like decapitation or getting half his torso blown off.

Boomstick: But Jason could. He also had more experience fighting other supernatural enemies like Leatherface, Freddy, and his Über self, so I doubt Michael could've surprised him with something he's never seen before.

Wiz: And Jason was just as strong and vicious as Michael, if not more, so given the difference in survivability, he had a much better chance of striking Michael down first. In a battle between two unkillable monsters, it's only natural it would come down to who was more unkillable.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: After being ripped to pieces, Michael can now RIP in peace. Right, Jocelyn?

We cut to the wide shot of the campfire one last time, where Jocelyn, like DUMMI and Ringmaster before her, has mysteriously disappeared.

Boomstick: J... Jocelyn...? Hello...?

Now alone in the woods, Wiz and Boomstick nervously look at each other as Jason's chant echoes around them, the Crystal Lake Killer himself appearing behind the hosts as a silhouette. However, we cut to the "Winner" card before Jason can do anything to them.

Wiz: T-The winner... is Jason Voorhees...

Original Track

TGIH

Composition

The track for this fight is "T.G.I.H. (Thank God It's Halloween)" by Therewolf Media. It is a suspenseful orchestral track, similar to the soundtracks of both combatants' films, that features Jason's "ki ki ki ma ma ma" chant and the Halloween theme throughout it in various parts.

Title

The title is a reference to the phrase "T.G.I.F. (Thank God It's Friday)", referencing the Friday the 13th series and possibly even the song "Thank God It's Friday" by Ice Nine Kills (a song about Friday the 13th), with "Friday" replaced with "Halloween" to reference the Halloween series, as well as how this episode was released on Halloween itself. The usage of brackets and the phrase "T.G.I.H." may possibly be a reference to "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" by Katy Perry.

Cover Art

The cover art done by John Mitchell depicts a pumpkin cut in half, presumably added to celebrate the episode's Halloween release date. The left half depicts Michael's William Shatner mask, with blood on it and his knife stabbed into it. The right half depicts Jason's hockey mask, with his machete stabbed into it. There is a transparent silhouette of a larger pumpkin in the background.

Trivia

Production

  • The connections between Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers are that they are both extremely popular and iconic horror movie slasher villains who are silent and brutal serial killers with a preference for blades (a machete and a kitchen knife, respectively) and wear a signature white mask (a hockey mask and a pale William Shatner mask, respectively). Both were put away for a long period of time when they were children due to a death (Jason "drowned" and Michael was put in a mental facility after murdering his sister), before eventually returning as an adult and slaughtering many victims of a specific location they often return to (Camp Crystal Lake and Haddonfield, respectively), usually returning on the same date they were originally put away (Friday the 13th and Halloween, respectively). Both are nigh-unstoppable and always come back no matter how many times they seem to die or be defeated, though they had been repeatedly thwarted by an archenemy (Tommy Jarvis and Laurie Strode, respectively). Both of their motivations also stemmed from their relationships with family members, albeit in different ways (Jason continues his mother's killing spree and heeds her orders, whereas Michael killed his sister Judith and continuously stalks and hunts Laurie Strode, his long-lost sister in some timelines). Despite appearing slow, both are also ridiculously stealthy and fast, to the point of seemingly teleporting due to their tendency to appear and disappear instantly. Both of their extreme popularities have also led to their franchises having several installments, which are often considered as getting worse in quality as they go on.
    • Both also have a connection with the year 1957, being the year when Jason drowned in Crystal Lake and when Michael was born.
    • Both Jason and Michael have also appeared in video games as guest characters, with Jason being a playable kombatant in Mortal Kombat X and XL and Michael being a playable killer in Call of Duty: Ghosts (specifically the Onslaught DLC) and the survival horror game Dead by Daylight under his classic moniker, "The Shape".
    • The original Friday the 13th was inspired by Halloween during its production.
  • Fittingly enough for the names of both combatants' home series, this episode is not only the 13th episode of Season 9, but also had its YouTube release date on Halloween itself.
    • Ben teased this coincidence in the 299th episode of DEATH BATTLE Cast, which was streamed 13 days before this episode was officially revealed at the end of SpongeBob VS Aquaman.[1]
    • This makes it the third episode to have either its Rooster Teeth or YouTube release date land on Halloween night, after Ryu VS Scorpion and Sabrewulf VS Jon Talbain.
    • It was confirmed by a member of the team in a private Discord server that this episode was originally going to be the 12th episode of the season, with the original 13th episode being SpongeBob VS Aquaman.
  • Halloween Ends released only three days before this episode was revealed.
    • In a humorous coincidence, Halloween Ends happens to be the 13th Halloween movie as of the episode's release.
  • With the most recent Friday the 13th installment being released in 2009, this episode was released 13 years after Jason's latest theatrical appearance.
  • This is the first episode since Wario VS King Dedede where neither combatant received a voice actor.
  • In an instance of the Death Battle Curse striking, a Friday the 13th prequel series entitled Crystal Lake was announced a few hours after the episode's release on YouTube.
  • A behind-the-scenes video was made for the production of "T.G.I.H. (Thank God It's Halloween)".
  • Interestingly, Jason's model used is specifically his Friday the 13th Part III design, which is the earliest depiction of Jason's iconic hockey mask design. Because of his model choice, the currently zombified Jason is represented as his human self, with his mask even lacking the gash from that movie that would be used in almost all his future appearances.
  • In the April 24th, 2024 Members-only Fireside Chat, Ben and Chad revealed that this episode was originally planned to be live-action and looked to Ismahawk for that purpose, though the group was busy with other projects at the time. Another unknown group had been hired, though they pulled out at the last minute, forcing the team to look to DevilArtemis to make a 3D animation, who was unfortunately under threat by the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season at the time and dealing with power outages and issues in his personal life, resulting in a rushed production process.
  • This episode was initially teased and revealed as Jason VS Michael Myers, though Jason's last name would be added to the title before the episode's release.

Easter Eggs

  • The last thing listed in Jason's "Background" slide is "Was a guest on the Arsenio Hall Show", referencing his appearance on said show that was made to promote Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.
  • Throughout the episode, Wiz and Boomstick argue over whether or not Jason and Michael have the ability to teleport, which is a common argument that many Friday the 13th and Halloween fans continuously debate the answer of.
  • Pamela's first line mentioning someone with "The blackest eyes, the devil's eyes..." is a reference to Loomis' speech on Michael in the original Halloween.
  • The first victim of Jason seen in the fight is that of an unknown person's dead body in a yellow sleeping bag, likely referencing Jason's famous sleeping bag kill on Judith Williams from Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood.
    • As revealed in this episode's storyboards by John Mitchell, Jason was originally going to hit Michael with the sleeping bag in reference to the kill, but this was ultimately changed to Jason swinging Alex's dead body at Michael instead.
  • The two human victims who are seen during the fight use the models of Deborah Kim and Brandon Wilson, both of whom are unlockable characters in Friday the 13th: The Game, though they are referred to as "Alex" and "Sam" in the episode.
  • Michael's masked perspective upon approaching and slaughtering Alex is a reference to his point of view when he killed Judith in the original Halloween.
  • The way Michael pins Jason to a tree with his knife before noticing Sam is a reference to Bob Simms' death in the original Halloween.
  • Michael using an axe for a good portion of the battle may be a reference to how his incarnation in Call of Duty: Ghosts' Onslaught DLC used an axe instead of his signature knife.
    • The fact that said axe was a fire axe rather than a wood axe may be a reference to how he killed a group of firefighters at the beginning of Halloween Kills with their own tools, one of which was an axe.
  • The jack-o'-lanterns seen on the front of the mausoleum at the beginning of the fight and next to Pamela's gravestone in the climax are modeled after the ones seen in the title sequences of the original Halloween and Halloween (2018).

Errors

  • When describing other horror icons Jason has battled in crossovers, Wiz describes them as "other supernatural entities". While this is true for Freddy Krueger, this description does not fit Leatherface or Ash Williams, as the former's series lacks supernatural elements and the latter is a (relatively) normal man who fights the supernatural.
