The YouTube 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. The host of the video will aim to present the argument for both opposing protagonists in a fair and impartial manner; this process is achieved by highlighting all the relevant strengths and weaknesses (if any) of the opposing protagonists, as well as all relevant background and historical information relevant to the debate; after all the facts have been addressed, the host will then draw a conclusion as to who -- in their opinion -- would win the hypothetical fight based on all the relevant evidence. The YouTube Versus Video is not a one-way process, and the host will usually invite the (unbiased) opinions of viewers in the comments section of YouTube to discuss the fight. Note: the key difference between this type of video and others on YouTube, is this: other videos, often non-contentious, can BECOME a flame war when some viewers disagree with something or someone they've seen;the YouTube Versus Video is specifically for the purpose of sensible and unbiased comments about the fight being discussed. Furthermore, this video is not The Flame War Forum (theflamewarforum.friendhood.net), a forum that is entirely based around flame wars.
The following (below) are just a few examples -- with the actual comments of the hosts included -- of YouTube Versus Videos that can be found on YouTube:
