Lyrics

Old Godzilla was hopping around
Tokyo City like a big playground,
When suddenly Batman burst from the shade
And hit Godzilla with a Batgrenade.
Godzilla got pissed and began to attack,
But didn’t expect to be blocked by Shaq,
Who proceeded to open up a can of Shaq Fu,
When Aaron Carter came out of the blue.

And he started beating up Shaquille O’Neal,
Then they both got flattened by the Batmobile,
But before it could make it back to the Batcave,
Abraham Lincoln popped out of his grave
And took an AK47 out from under his hat,
And blew Batman away with a rat-a-tat-tat,
But he ran out of bullets and he ran away,
Because Optimus Prime came to save the day.

This is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.
Good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see.
And only one will survive, I wonder who it will be.
This is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.

Godzilla took a bite out of Optimus Prime,
Like Scruff McGruff took a bite out of crime.
And then Shaq came back covered in a tire track,
But Jackie Chan jumped out and landed on his back.
And Batman was injured, and trying to get steady,
When Abraham Lincoln came back with a machete.
But suddenly something caught his leg and he tripped.
Indiana Jones took him out with his whip.

Then he saw Godzilla sneaking up from behind,
And he reached for his gun which he just couldn’t find,
‘Cause Batman stole it and he shot and he missed,
And Jackie Chan deflected it with his fist.
Then he jumped in the air and did a somersault
While Abraham Lincoln tried to pole vault
Onto Optimus Prime, but they collided in the air,
Then they both got hit by a Care Bear stare.

This is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.
Good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see.
And only one will survive, I wonder who it will be.
This is the Ultimate Showdown.

Angels sang out in immaculate chorus.
Down from the heavens descended Chuck Norris,
Who delivered a kick which could shatter bones
Into the crotch of Indiana Jones.
Who fell over on the ground, writhing in pain,
As Batman changed back into Bruce Wayne.
But Chuck saw through his clever disguise,
And he crushed Batman’s head in between his thighs.

Then Gandalf the Grey and Gandalf the White and
Monty Python and the Holy Grail’s Black Knight and
Benito Mussolini and The Blue Meanie and
Cowboy Curtis and Jambi the Genie,
Robocop, the Terminator, Captain Kirk, and Darth Vader,
Lo Pan, Superman, every single Power Ranger,
Bill S. Preston and Theodore Logan,
Spock, The Rock, Doc Ock, and Hulk Hogan
All came out of no where lightning fast,
And they kicked Chuck Norris in his cowboy ass.
It was the bloodiest battle the world ever saw,
With civilians looking on total awe.

And the fight raged on for a century.
Many lives were claimed, but eventually
The champion stood, the rest saw their better:
Mr. Rogers in a bloodstained sweater.

This is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.
Good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see.
And only one will survive, I wonder who it will be.
This is the Ultimate Showdown… (This is the Ultimate Showdown.)
This is the Ultimate Showdown… (This is the Ultimate Showdown.)
This is the Ultimate Showdown… of Ultimate Destiny.

Remixes

Battlemixes

These mixes came out of LÆB’s forum topic “Ultimate Showdown battlemixes” in which she suggested that a quick way to make people sick of the song was to download the vocal track and set it against music from another song.

Parodies/tributes

Due to its widespread online popularity, it has also attracted parodies, both of the video and the song. A few have been attacks on the original, while others have been intended more as friendly tributes.

  • The Gayest Showdown by PowerRangerYELLOW: A parody video featuring an acapella track mocking the original lyrics, featuring unexplained Naruto references.
  • The Ultimate Slowdown: A collaborative parody video based on the original track slowed down, though it is never explained “[what] the christ that’s supposed to signify,” as Neil himself put it in an otherwise sarcastically-positive review of the video. The video was taken down on July 12th, 2006 after being blammed by Newgrounds’ users.
  • The Ultimate ******** of Ultimate ******* by LÆB: A parody edit of The Ultimate Showdown, in reaction to Jonovox’s forum topic, Does Lemon Demon Sware??? Various words are bleeped out.
  • The Ultimate Sequel by SaintSmythe: A self-referential parody of the song, in which Neil gets annoyed by an overwhelming amount of Ultimate Showdown fanmail from unintelligent Newgrounds users. He decides to try to put it to an end by creating a bad sequel, but it is an unexpected success. Later, a battle between Colin Mochrie and Eric Bauman takes place; and the “Then Gandalf the Grey…” verse instead consists of the names of several Illemonati who arrive and ask Colin Mochrie for his autograph after he decisively defeats Bauman.
  • The Ultimate Orgy of Homosexuality by SaintSmythe: A parody of the song playing on the lack of female fighters in the original (aside from the Pink Ranger and possibly the Care Bear), turning the battle into a giant gay orgy. In the verse mentioning Batman thinking of “an armadillo named Corey” is a reference to Neverending Hum. In its version of the “Then Gandalf the Grey…” verse, it also contains a reference to The Ultimate Sequel as part of an Illemonati in-joke, and later a reference to the Lemon Demon song Steve. An edited version of the song, removing Illemonati in-jokes, was later animated by Cybersp0nge
  • The Ultimate Showdown of Political Leaders by Zephyr: A parody of The Ultimate Showdown, this one starring many famous political figures, was later sung by Cam. It can be found here.
  • Do you have Katherine on MSN? by Chiaro is a rambling tale of two girls talking on MSN Messenger. It was improvised.
  • Altimat Chodon by Ph3r: Parodying the comment of a very typical MySpace commenter on Neil’s MySpace page who attempted to transcribe the song…and failed miserably. The title is the worst corruption of the original title possibly conceivable. MP3
  • Some shitty parody by Theultimategaywad.
  • The Ultimate Showdown of Gaming Destiny by Dr. Professorman simply uses an extensive list of video game characters for the combatants.
  • Ultimate Showdown of Johnny Yong Boschity by Neil Cicierega: An impromptu performance at Youmacon 2007. The lyrics replace the names of most of the participants with “Johnny Yong Bosch”, who was also a guest at the convention.
  • Ultimate Showdown, Homestuckified by : Replacing pop culture references with Homestuck references (tindeck link)
  • The Ultimate Showdown of Musical Comedy by Nuclear Bubble Wrap, using the same idea with comedy musicians played frequently on the Dr. Demento Show.
  • Ultimate Showdown of Anime Destiny by ShadowCloneSan
