The Versus Video is an online video-debate on YouTube whereby the host of the video will discuss a hypothetical fight involving some of the better known fictional protagonists from the media of films, television, graphic novels, and video games to decide the likely winner.
Most Versus Videos on YouTube follow a general set of guidelines/rules -- in no particular order -- when discussing any hypothetical fight and will contain some or all of the following criteria:

1.The host of the video -- regardless of their favourite character -- is always fair and unbiased about the fight.

2.The host of the video will discuss all the relevant historical and background information about the opposing protagonists.

3.The host of the video will discuss all the relevant strengths and weaknesses (if any) of the opposing protagonists, and compare and contrast their respective skill sets and power levels.

4.The host of the video will draw a conclusion, based on the evidence, of how the hypothetical fight -- in their opinion -- will end.

5.The host of the video will seek the opinions and comments of the viewers about the fight.
The following (below) are some examples -- with the actual comments of the hosts included -- of versus videos on YouTube:

1.WHO WOULD WIN: Darth Vader or Darth Bane?
by yarealpoof aka Matt's Corner
Be fair and unbiased. This is not a "favorite" contest this is about skill.

2.Superman vs The Hulk - Who Would Really Win?
by Trevschan2
What's up guys so I thought I would do a video on who I think would win in a match or fight to the death between Superman Clark Kent and The Incredible Hulk Bruce Banner. This is a non biased breakdown of who I think would win between the two and who is stronger.

5.Versus Series: Kit Fisto Vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi
by Jensaarai1 aka The Nerd-Rage Ranter
My latest versus video; two famed Jedi swordmasters.

6.Goku vs Superman - Who would win?

This is a video I am doing as a hypothetical match up between 2 of the most famous characters in all of comics and literature. This is a match up between Son Goku and The Man of Steel himself Superman.

Versus Videos are a type of online video on the website YouTube in which the host will discuss a hypothetical fight mainly involving fictional protagonists from graphic novels, films and television to determine the winner of the fight.
Versus Videos can be made by anyone, meaning anyone can adopt the mantle of an “expert” and present their opinions as facts to those viewers less aware of the topic; at times, the recurring issue for some viewers concerns the host's KNOWLEDGE of the opposing protagonist’s abilities and histories, rather than who would win the hypothetical battle. Rule of thumb: be careful who you listen to.
There are a general set of unwritten guidelines that YouTubers seem to adhere to, in no set order, when presenting a versus video: (a) the host of the versus video –regardless of their favourite character – should ALWAYS be fair and impartial about the fight; (b) the host of the versus video will discuss ALL the relevant historical and background information about the opposing protagonists; (c) the host of the versus video will discuss ALL the relevant strengths and weaknesses (if there’s any) of the opposing protagonists, and compare and contrast their respective abilities, skills and powers; (d) the host of the versus video will reach a conclusion, based on ALL the evidence, of how the hypothetical fight –in their UNBIASED opinion– will end; (e) the host of the versus video will usually seek the views and opinions of the viewers about the fight.
The following versus videos (below) –with the actual comments of the hosts included– can be found on the website, YouTube:
