Wiz: Stitch, Disney's extraordinary Experiment 626.

Boomstick: Rocket, Marvel's murderous mercenary mustelid. Those are like weasels and ferrets and... raccoons! Y'know, 'cause he's a—

Wiz: (cough) Just because you're cute and fluffy doesn't mean you aren't the deadliest thing in the universe.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

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... a Death Battle.

Wiz: In the distant reaches of outer space, the mad scientist Jumba Jookiba was accused of illegal genetic experimentation.

Boomstick: He took the galaxy's most fearsome, most dangerous, most absolutely, purely, black-hearted evil creatures and... smushed 'em all together.

Wiz: A great man with a vision, persecuted by spineless know-nothing bureaucrats.

Boomstick: The result? Experiment 626. Though you can just call him Stitch.

Stitch: Meega nala kweesta!

Wiz: (gasps) He did not!

Boomstick: I think I'm gonna be sick!

The music is abruptly interrupted as Wiz and Boomstick are heard vomiting in disgust.

Boomstick: Ugh, so naughty. Blegh...

Boomstick: After being slated for termination, Stitch escaped to a distant planet, "E-Arth". Oh wait, Earth.

Wiz: Crash landing in the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i, of all places. There, he'd be adopted by the Earth girl Lilo and went incognito as the ugliest dog ever.

Boomstick: And despite his horrific upbringing, Stitch found he had a softer side, a love of Elvis, and a kinship with Lilo, a devil child who didn't fit in, just like him. It wasn't long before Stitch was ready to do anything to protect his new 'ohana from the alien threats comin' to get him.

Wiz: And let me tell you, as a fellow mad scientist, Jumba really outdid himself here. I've been meaning to dig deeper into Stitch's piecemeal alien biology for years!

Wiz: First of all, his fluffy exterior is entirely bulletproof, fireproof, and nearly impenetrable.

Boomstick: Though, this comes with a catch; his molecular structure is so dense, he can't swim. Sucks he landed in Hawaii of all places.

Wiz: Stitch can crawl on walls, hear a whisper from miles away, and scream so loud, he'll blow you to kingdom come.

Boomstick: He's strong enough to lift 3,000 times his own body weight, and can Spin Dash so fast, he'll burst into flames.

Wiz: His eyesight is also incredible. He's got night, X-ray, and infrared vision, and can even zoom in hundreds of times over.

Boomstick: Even better, he can hock loogies like a friggin' machine gun. His spit is conductive enough to short-circuit electronics, stick objects together like glue, and even dissolve solid rock. Oh, and he's somehow a genius, too. The dude knows molecular physics and can build entire mech suits and spaceships out of junk in seconds.

Wiz: You wouldn't think it from his... everything, but Stitch is a genius with a brain comparable to a supercomputer. The world's most powerful supercomputer right now is Hewlett-Packard's Frontier, which can make one quintillion calculations a second.

Boomstick: Comparing Stitch to Frontier is frankly a massive lowball.

Wiz: See, Stitch was programmed to have Jumba's own intelligence, and Jumba's IQ has been compared to that of an entire galaxy combined.

We cut to DUMMI floating down in front of the Death Battle Lab's monitor.

DUMMI: I have conducted my own genetic analysis to determine Stitch's alien progenitors. His DNA includes traces of the Manglyoid of Upmoridian Four, the Goo-Gobbling Booger-Beast, the People-Eating Puss Monkey, the Deadly Disemboweler, the Boiling Tongue-Boid, and the Bottom Feeding Scum Sucker.

The camera zooms out to show Wiz, Boomstick, and DUMMI.

Wiz: (to Boomstick) Ahem, sounds like your ex-wife! (chuckles) Am I right?

Boomstick and DUMMI are shocked at Wiz's joke, prompting Boomstick to respond as the music abruptly stops.

Boomstick: No! Wiz, what the hell?! That's such a messed up thing to say about her! Be... better!

DUMMI: I'm so disappointed in you.

Boomstick: You can make those jokes when you start paying the alimony.

Boomstick angrily walks to the left until he's off-screen, with DUMMI shaking his head in disappointment at Wiz before he follows suit.

Wiz: Uh... well, Stitch's incredible buffet of alien DNA is supported by a power cell embedded in his body, fueled by the energy of two colliding planets.

Despite the music coming back on as Wiz says this, it dies down once the camera cuts to the wide shot of the Lab, Boomstick still off-screen.

Wiz: Huh? Colliding planets!

The sound of crickets chirping are heard.

Wiz: Uh... Uh... A-A-Are you coming back...? No...?

Boomstick: (off-screen) F*** YOU!

Wiz: Ok...

We cut back to the analysis.

Boomstick: He's got a jetpack, freeze ray, grenades, and a Sizemotronic 200, which can make sandwiches gigantic! Oh, and shrink enemies, that-that's cool, too.

Wiz: Stitch was a one-fluff army, and he proved it when everyone from the Galactic Federation to the dastardly Dr. Hämsterviel came to pick a fight with him.

Boomstick: Including all of Jumba's experiments. Yeah, 626 isn't just some random number. There are hundreds of these little bastards runnin' around. More troublemakin' cousins to add to his growing 'ohana.

Wiz: Though, he had to pacify many of them first. Like Slushy, who can create a snowstorm that covered all of Kaua'i.

Boomstick: Or Richter, who can split the Earth in half and shatter planet-busting asteroids!

Wiz: And Jumba stated that Stitch was the most destructive unstoppable monster the universe has ever seen! Even more dangerous than Holio, who can create a black hole large enough to consume the entire universe.

Boomstick: Speakin' of black holes, in the anime, yes, there's a Lilo & Stitch anime, Stitch once piloted a ship carrying a supernova bomb, strong enough to wipe out a galaxy, and flew it into a black hole. It and the black hole both exploded on top of him, and he popped out no worse for the wear. Y'know, like-like you do.

Wiz: Another time, he piloted a ship to a different black hole in less than two minutes. It's unclear exactly how far this was, but the average distance between stars is about five lightyears.

Boomstick: That means his ship would've had to have been flying at over one million times the speed of light.

Wiz: And when he's filled with love for his 'ohana, the power cell inside Stitch surges incalculably. He used this to defeat Dark End, an experiment explicitly made to be stronger than Stitch, who had just defeated four Stitch clones all on his own.

Boomstick: And Stitch completely annihilated him. He knocked Dark End into outer space so hard, he dislodged a city-sized space station. Y'know, LIKE YOU DO!

Wiz: He's even managed to worm his way into completely different Disney properties.

Boomstick: Oh god, we don't have another Deadpool on our hands, do we?

Wiz: With Stitch around, Lilo, Nani, and the inhabitants of Earth couldn't be safer.

Boomstick: Surf's up for everyone's favorite blue fuzzball of death!

Boomstick: Somewhere in the Black Mountain Hills of Dakota,there was a young boy named Rocky Raccoon—

The music immediately stops.

Wiz: Rocket Raccoon. Rocket, not Rocky, that's the Beatles song he's named after.

Boomstick: Well... I have wasted a lot of time on some very specific research.

Wiz: In fact, it's just Rocket. Despite his startling resemblance to the resourceful dumpster-diving mammal, Rocket originates from the alien planet Halfworld, which served as an asylum for the criminally insane, ruled over by alien humanoids.

Boomstick: Along with many of Halfworld's cutesy inhabitants, Rocket was subjected to cyber-genetic modifications by his overlords.

Wiz: All with the purpose of being Halfworld's warden, Ranger Rocket.

Boomstick: Rocket's mutations make him smarter, stronger, faster, and tougher than your average garbage goblin.

Wiz: His cybernetic skeleton is connected to artificial vertebrae and neural implants, allowing him to dodge gunfire and laser beams, survive an explosion the size of a city block, and keep up with supervillains like Kraven and Venom.

Boomstick: Alongside pals Lylla the Otter and Wal Rus the... (walrus noise) yeah, Rocket battled the mercenary Blackjack O'Hare and killer clowns and saved the day time and time again... I bet you're wondering what the hell this has to do with Guardians of the Galaxy.

Wiz: In a convoluted editorial effort to reboot his character, Rocket left Halfworld to become a mercenary and had his memory suppressed. After a betrayal by his otter lover, a different one, he has a thing for otters, Rocket was sent to jail... space jail!

Boomstick: And prison changes a man. Gone was the Saturday morning cartoon character of yore. He was a felon, cynical and hardened by the criminal justice system. The space criminal justice system!

Wiz: Rocket suffered not only from his penal servitude, but the trauma of his brutal genetic modifications, and a lingering sense of alienation. It was in this personal hell where he'd meet a bunch of a-holes who would soon be his new teammates: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, and of course, his best pal, Groot.

Boomstick: And together, they were the Guardians of the Galaxy! Defending the free peoples of the cosmos from all manner of alien menace... for a price, of course. Though unlike some of the powerhouses on his team, Rocket's raccoon body is—

The camera suddenly cuts to Wiz and Boomstick, the former exasperated at the latter as the music abruptly stops.

Wiz: I told you, he's not a raccoon, he was created on Halfworld and is the last of an entire race of raccoon-like aliens. He just happens to look like an Earth raccoon.

We cut to Boomstick's side, where he's now wearing a coonskin cap.

Nail It

Boomstick: Don't lecture me on raccoons, Wiz. I'm an expert, been fightin' the bastards for years. Did you know their tiny little bandit masks are for reducing glare to enhance night vision? They can hear noises as quiet as earthworms digging underground, and about two thirds of the sensory perception part of their cerebral cortex is devoted to their tactile impulses. That's where they grab shit with their tiny little hands!

Wiz: All perfectly suited to a nimble, stealthy glass cannon like Rocket.

Boomstick: Yeah! 'Cause... he's a raccoon.

We cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: As I was saying, Rocket became the team's resident grease monkey, specializing in all things technology and engineering. And fittingly, his specialty in combat is firearms.

Boomstick: Yup, that sounds like my cue, Wiz. Rocket's built giant mechs, cobbled together random junk for an improvised flamethrower, and casually slapped together a bomb strong enough to destroy a moon!

Boomstick: Oh, and he's got every kind of hand cannon imaginable. Pistols, machine guns, miniguns, rifles, rocket launchers, plasma guns, laser guns, and my favorite, the Melon Popper, where "Melon" means "head" and "Pop" means... "kabam".

Wiz: That melon belonged to a Super-Skrull, one of the deadliest warriors in the Marvel universe. With the combined abilities of the Fantastic Four, including the Thing, who survived a blast from the Power Cosmic that could split a planet in two.

Boomstick: Yeah, Rocket's weapons are... crazy. Like the Rampart Arms Phasic Cannon, which utilizes cold fusion and could melt the face off the Mad Titan himself, Thanos.

Wiz: The same Thanos who was strong enough to survive a supermassive black hole four lightyears across, and came out with only light scratches.

Boomstick: The very same purple Shrek who's battled universe busters and beyond like Thor, Hulk, and Odin. Yep, Thanos can walk through attacks from a dude who can shake the multiverse, and Rocket's guns can hurt him? I'mma need one of those puppies under my pillow, ASAP.

Wiz: And similar weaponry to what Rocket's used can operate down to the picosecond, which is one trillionth of a second.

Boomstick: He can access all of these goodies at any time from his Orbital Stash, a remote-controlled satellite that'll deliver anything he wants lickety-split.

Wiz: Rocket can zoom through the sky on his rocket skates, project force fields, teleport with a portable A.I., melt through solid metal with acid, and even hack foreign technology.

Boomstick: Anything from a prison to a planet to an entire galactic empire! Rocket's the most dangerous not-racoon-who's-totally-a-racoon in the whole universe!

Wiz: And he's proven it with the Guardians. He's saved Earth at least 11 times, cured Ego the Living Planet of a lice infestation, and held his own against an entire world trying to kill him all at once.

Boomstick: He even devised a plan that ultimately stopped Dormammu, the Lord of the friggin' Dark Dimension! No wonder Star-Lord called Rocket the greatest tactical mind he's ever met, even if sometimes he has a tendency to run in guns blazin'.

Wiz: Though he'd always be a wise-cracking son of a bitch, his time with the Guardians softened his edges. He learned to enjoy life again, and even made it back to Halfworld to send that bastard Blackjack O'Hare packing.

Boomstick: And even though he CLEARLY IS ONE, whatever you do, don't call him a raccoon, 'cause there's nowhere in the galaxy to hide from this gun-totin' motherflarker.


Wiz: Alright, the combatants are set. We've run the data through all possibilities.


Death Battle

The scene opens with Rocket Raccoon humming and whistling to himself as he works on his inactive spaceship, the Milano, from underneath.

The camera zooms out to show his location: an island space resort that seemingly defies all logic, infinite waterfalls falling into the depths of space, pools of water completely static and keeping the whole area afloat on nothingness. An inactive volcano is also present, with a moon and Saturn-like planet in the distance.

A familiar Ice Cream Man is also on the resort, holding a mint ice cream cone and standing next to a sign that states "ALOHA, Welcome to Space Hawaii". An eruption from the volcano is heard soon after, which the man looks towards.

A screaming fiery object soon after comes flying from the volcano right into Rocket's spaceship, annihilating it in an explosion with a shock wave of enough force that knocks over the unfortunate man's dessert onto the ground. Stitch jumps out of the crater with Rocket nearby, the latter appalled from his vehicle's destruction.

Rocket: You smashed my ship, flark-face!

Preparing to fight, Stitch bares his teeth and brandishes his claws. Understandably angered, Rocket pulls out laser blasters and begins shooting at Stitch, who evades them and runs a distance. He then pulls out his plasma rays and shoots green projectiles back at Rocket, who takes cover with the environment.

After a brief gunfight, Rocket shoots out three lasers, two of which disarm Stitch's guns, the last one landing its mark on his neck. While uninjured, his tiki necklace is knocked off, which soon disintegrates. Stitch notices this under more ensuing gunfire, causing him to spurt out an insult in Tantalog.

Stitch: Ka pwa mun chiggy!

Rocket briefly pauses shooting in shock over what he heard.

Rocket: (angrily) What did you say about my mother?!

In blind anger, he blasts another shot at Stitch, who catches the projectile and compacts it into a laser ball despite the heat before tossing it back to Rocket, who is sent rolling back from the direct hit. Stitch then jumps in the air before sneezing out conductive spit, which yoinks away Rocket's blasters and sticks them to a tree behind him, much to his repulsion.

Rocket: You disgust me.

He has little time to react as Stitch leaps at him with a slashing slam combo before hurling him back-first into a tree. Stitch sprints in pursuit, only to find Rocket nowhere to be found in the bush. He searches around, only to find automatic turrets aiming at him, which blast away.

After being sent bouncing a small distance, more turrets begin to bombard Stitch, leaving him to comically and frantically run and dash around, being set on fire a few times. Meanwhile, a groovy-mooded Rocket is up in the trees, pressing buttons on his wrist device to cause multiple explosions in the forest.

Soon, Stitch is sent flying back to the beach's sandy shores, looking up to find Rocket in front of him. He tries to jump at him, only for Rocket to teleport and leave him to bang his head against a metal object behind where Rocket was, who then appears on top of the object, revealed to be a nuclear bomb. Stitch can only look at the camera, giving an annoyed look while knowing what happens next.

It explodes, and Rocket warps a far distance away next to a table with a margarita, which he leisurely takes a drink of in satisfaction. However, he soon hears laughter from the big wave coming his way and a shock wave that knocks away his glass. He looks to the water to see Stitch surfing on a piece of metal towards him on the wave.

Grunting in annoyance, Rocket pulls out a rocket launcher and takes aim, until he hears the blue alien shouting something to him.

Stitch: Meega nala kweesta!!!

Instead of shooting, Rocket nearly vomits in disgust after translating what he had heard, though he manages to hold it in. Taking a moment, he puts down his weapon before abundantly pressing more buttons on his wrist device.

Rocket: That's it! Gonna need a bigger gun!

His orbital stash up above sends down a care package. Needing to buy time, Rocket uses jet boosters to fly towards and shoot rockets at Stitch, who surfs around them.

Stitch: Tookie bah wah bah!

Stitch then grows out his alien appendages and antennae before jumping on a missile, which sends him back into the wave. He quickly reemerges with an electric power surge towards Rocket, who drops his weapon to form an energy shield in front of him to block the incoming assault. As Stitch tries to wail on him, Rocket notices his package arriving.

Rocket: Got it! Come to papa.

It releases the Rampart Arms Phasic Cannon, which he boosts himself up towards and grabs, leaving Stitch below on his energy shield.

Rocket: I guess you could call this my Thanos Buster. It's huntin' season now, fuzzball!

He unleashes a massive wave of energy down at Stitch, who is sent hurling towards the water from the plasma blast, which destroys his extra appendages and antennae in the process. Rocket gives a smug grin, believing the fight to be over.

Under the water however, a barely conscious Stitch recovers and looks around to find metal salvage below him on the reef, alongside Rocket's previous rocket launcher. Rocket soon notices ripples of waves forming from where Stitch was, leaving him to realize his opponent was still kicking.

Rocket: You gotta be kiddin' me...

Stitch emerges from the water in laughter, having remodeled Rocket's weapon into a hoverboard with a massive blade at the front, rushing towards Rocket. He tries his luck again with another phasic shot, but Stitch quickly steers out of the way to impale him dead-on. As they fly on, Stitch gives Rocket a mischievous greeting and goodbye.

Stitch: Aloha!

He then bites Rocket's arm, destroying his wrist device in the process before jumping away, leaving him flying away. As Rocket tries to fix his device, he looks back to see that he is traveling at high speeds in a collision course towards his own orbital stash. He can only attempt to let out one last curse...

Rocket: MotherFU—

... before crashing into the satellite, causing a massive explosion that sets off massive fireworks in the sky. This sight leaves the Ice Cream Man mesmerized before he is interrupted by wreckage of the satellite falling onto the welcome sign next to him.

Unharmed, he ignores what happened and tries to lick his ice cream, only to get unwittingly gored by a falling Stitch, who gets up afterwards and shakes himself clean of sand and dirt before looking around to see what happened, only to see the man's ice cream fall into his hand. The victorious Stitch takes a huge lick to devour the dessert before pumping his fists in the air, cheering at his own victory.

Boomstick: Y'know, brutally murdering Ice Cream Guy wasn't necessary, Wiz, but... I felt it was an artful touch.

Wiz: Though similar in many ways, Stitch and Rocket's fighting styles were polar opposites.

Boomstick: Stitch was more than strong enough to tear Rocket apart physically, while Rocket's guns were powerful enough to kill people even stronger than Stitch. So, the question was simple: if both of 'em only needed one hit to win, who would get the killing blow first?

Wiz: It all came down to speed. Rocket has dodged lasers, and his guns could operate down to the picosecond; one trillionth of a second.

Boomstick: But Stitch's supercomputer brain could operate down to the quintillionth of a second; a million times faster, at minimum.

Wiz: And his ability to pilot that ship at over a million times the speed of light meant that he more than had the reaction speed to dodge anything Rocket threw at him.

Boomstick: Rocket's tactical brilliance meant he could keep Stitch at bay with tricks for a while, but he couldn't reliably seal the deal. Despite bein' a little blue goblin, Stitch usually stays level-headed in a fight, whereas Rocket can be way more impulsive.

Wiz: And frankly, Stitch is probably even smarter considering he has the combined IQ of an entire galaxy.

Boomstick: One slip up from Rocket is all Stitch would need to end the fight.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick, the latter still wearing his coonskin cap.

Wiz: Rocket's arsenal was absolutely bonkers to be sure, but Stitch's superior speed, physical strength, and unbelievable intelligence gave him the win.

Boomstick: Looks like this Rocket's blasting off agaaaiiiiin!

As he says the pun, Boomstick takes off the cap and cheerfully throws it into the air, with Wiz ducking as it flies over his head before we cut to the "Winner" card.

Wiz: The winner is...

Before Wiz can finish, an off-screen explosion is heard, followed by the sounds of a turkey and Stitch himself, having somehow broke into the Death Battle Lab.

Wiz: Huh?! What's going on?! What's going on?!

Boomstick: Run! Runrunrunrunrun! Augh, there's a f***ing turkey here, too! Wiz, you gotta leave the turkey behind!

Wiz: No, it's mine!

As the hosts make a panicked run for it, Stitch decides to say something to the audience.

Stitch: The winner is Stitch.

He then lets out a laugh before the Death Battle transition card closes over the episode.

Original Track

Jailhouse Rocket
by Therewolf Media
YouTube IconSpotify Icon
Jailhouse Rocket


The track for this fight is "Jailhouse Rocket" by Therewolf Media. It is an upbeat lyrical Hawaiian rock-and-roll track heavily inspired by the works of Elvis Presley, whose music is referenced and featured in the first Lilo & Stitch movie. The style of the track is also similar to the '70s songs heard in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.


The title is a reference to "Jailhouse Rock" by Elvis Presley (which was used as the first ending song of Leroy & Stitch), with "Rock" replaced with "Rocket" to reference Rocket Raccoon.

Cover Art

The cover art done by John Mitchell depicts two Hawaiian tiki totems designed after Rocket and Stitch. Rocket's totem has a chunk bitten out of it and a part melted by Stitch's mucus, while Stitch's totem is partly on fire and has a line of small bullet holes in it and a larger bullet hole underneath. Both totems also feature a few scratch marks on them.


I've been travelin' in the cosmos so long
Hopin' for a light to guide me home but every turn just leads me to this place
Oh, oh, these powers are untamed (Woo!)
Shakin' up the galaxy with this sound
Just try to stop me, it's goin' down
It's goin' down


It's goin' down

Got a genetic glitch, but my pelvis is shakin'
With a mischievous grin I'm a force to reckon with, ohana fuels my fight
Oh, oh, my spirits are high
Cosmic agility and my hound dog stance
Just try to stop me, I'm gonna dance
I'm gonna dance

I'm a creature of mischief, heart's fueled with fire
Searching for a love that's true and true but every time it slips right through
With gadgets and gizmos, we're gonna clash
Just try to stop me, we're havin' a blast
We're havin' a blast (We're havin' a splash)

Oh, oh, these powers are untamed
We're havin' a blast
With gadgets and gizmos, we're gonna clash
Just try to stop me, we're havin' a blast
We're havin' a blast, we're havin' a blast



  • The connections between Stitch and Rocket Raccoon are that they are both small, furred, animalistic creatures that were genetically-engineered by aliens (Jumba Jookiba and the robots on Halfworld, respectively) along with the rest of their kind (genetic experiments and Halfworlders, respectively). Both used to have chaotic, destructive, and aggressive personalities, yet mellowed out and became a force for the greater good thanks to the positive influences of found families they joined (the Pelekai family and the Guardians of the Galaxy, respectively), as well as close friends they are protective of (Lilo and Groot, respectively), though they would still retain their snarky personalities. Both are skilled, agile fighters who have claws as their natural weapons, have heightened senses, use guns, pilot spaceships, and despite their appearances, are also incredibly intelligent. Both also became romantically entwined with a fellow genetic experiment (Angel and Lylla, respectively) and fought crazy, dark, rabbit-like aliens (Dark End and Blackjack O'Hare, respectively). Ironically, both had different reasons for why they were created (Stitch was created by Jumba to be a destroyer of worlds but became a relatively more peaceful creature who values his family over all else, while Rocket was created to be a caretaker on Halfworld but became the anti-hero member of the Guardians instead).
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was released on May 5, 2023, around two months before this episode's release date.
  • Stitch's preview was publicly released on June 26th, which is widely recognized as Stitch Day, as the date when written using the month/day/year format (6/26) is coincidentally Stitch's experiment number (626).
  • At the beginning of the season, a teaser trailer was released which included a Gravity Falls-inspired zodiac wheel with 16 symbols on it, each representing and hinting toward an episode in the season. After the release of the Season Finale, the Death Battle YouTube channel began revealing the answers to the zodiac wheel by posting the answers in pinned comments under the symbols' respective episodes. This episode was revealed to be represented by the wave symbol.[1] This is because the beach and surfing are synonymous with Lilo & Stitch, with the beach theme having been heavily emphasized in this episode's promotion (in its Next Time trailer, thumbnail, and the fight itself). It may also relate to the common analogy of comparing space (where both combatants originated from) to an ocean (which is prone to the creation of waves).
