From the animators of DEATH BATTLE!, this is One Minute Melee! How is this different than DEATH BATTLE!? Simple: there is NO RESEARCH put in to each melee. While they may be just for fun, it doesn't mean One Minute Melee isn't crazy intense.
~ Tagline

One Minute Melee is a spin-off series created by former DEATH BATTLE! animator, Mali De'lisser. As the name implies, each episode has a 60-second fight animation between two characters. The show advertises itself as having "no research" to contrast itself with DEATH BATTLE!; the winner of the fight is determined by the animators.


While the first three episodes were originally on the YouTube channel DiMMFx, the subsequent fights have been released on ScrewAttack's website and channel, though ScrewAttack does promote DiMMFx in every episode. Eventually, DiMMFx disbanded, but One Minute Melee continued into its second series with Mali De'lisser animating some 2D fights and being the primary director for the series and Torrian Crawford animating the 3D fights. After Season 2 however, One Minute Melee would move to Hyper Gauge appearing in Hyun's Dojo with Mali and most of the original crew and animators still present. Some of the animators stayed with Screwattack and would animate future episodes of DEATH BATTLE! as well as a similar show Screwattack would produce, DBX (the difference being there wouldn't be a time limit and like DEATH BATTLE! it would be guaranteed to end in a death).

The series was originally narrated by Takahata101 (Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Hellsing Ultimate Abridged, and Burn Your Fat With Me! For Girls!) in its first season (who has also provided voices for various Death Battle episodes) but has been replaced by ProfKranc (Star Fox: Event Horizon, BeyBlade Abridged, and Highschool Double Ds Abridged) along with a new intro for the show. Takahata101 went uncredited for his time as the Season 1 announcer.

The opening theme for Season 1 is Ryu's theme (Rising Dragoon) from Street Fighter EX Plus α, and the character select screen from Season 2 is from the arranged version of the select screen from Street Fighter Alpha, for Season 3 they used Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- "Sky Should Be High - Boss Theme" Remix by gvgkid and for season 4 was Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- OST Sky Should be High.

  • To this date, most of the announcer quotes come the lines said by Street Fighter's Game Announcer.
  • As of now:
    • Akuma (Oni) and Bowser are the only characters to win three One Minute Melees.
    • Batman, Zero, Meta Knight, Sonic, Link, Mecha Sonic, Sasuke, Terry and Ken are the only characters who have both won and lost a One Minute Melee.
    • Batman vs Albert Wesker and Lightning vs Wonder Woman are the only 3D One Minute Melees.
      • This makes Seasons 1 and 2 the only seasons to have a 3D One Minute Melee.
    • Akuma (Oni), Bowser, Frieza, Vegeta, and Kakashi are the only characters to have appeared multiple times and never to lose.
      • Although, Akuma's (Oni's) second and third appearance and Frieza's second was a trilogy/rematch against a character they had already beaten.
    • Akuma (Oni) vs Kenpachi Zaraki is the only fight to be done thrice in only one show.
      • Sephiroth vs Vergil was done in two One Minute Melees and a DEATH BATTLE!
        • Conversely, Mario vs Sonic was done in one One Minute Melee and two DEATH BATTLE!
    • Dragon Ball currently has the highest win count, with 9 wins to 3 losses.
      • DC comes in second, with 5 wins, 3 losses, and 1 tie.
    • X-Men (if excluding it from MARVEL's umbrella), Captain Commando, Pokemon, Metroid, Fist of the North Star, PlayStation All-Stars, Samurai X, Darkstalkers, Hajime no Ippo, Fairy Tail, Sword Art Online, Pac-Man, Fullmetal Alchemist, Digimon, My Hero Academia, Final Fantasy VII, Shovel Knight, Undertale, Viewtiful Joe, Steven Universe and Minecraft have yet to have a single win in One Minute Melee.
    • Terry & Rock vs Ken & Ryu is currently the only One Minute Melee to have more than two returning combatants, as it's a 2v2.
