Rap battles are debates on that are formatted similarly to real life rap battles, except under the limits set by the round-by-round format and character limits of debates. Just like real life rap battles, they feature two users insulting eachother and bragging about themselves. [1]

Although rap battles usually fall into the above description, unique rap battles have appeared that focus on other topics or have purposes beyond bragging and put-downs against one's opponent. This includes a debate about whether Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament prediction for the messiah, formatted like a rap battle[2], and a rap battle that focuses on complementing rather than criticizing one's opponent.
