The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, often shortened to Ultimate Showdown, is a comical song and video released on December 7, 2005. The song was written and performed by Neil Cicierega under the pseudonym "Lemon Demon", with art and Flash animation by Shawn Vulliez.

The work features many famous real and fictional characters, largely taken from pop culture of the 1980s and 1990s, in a huge brawl where "...only one will survive". It gained a large cult following among web enthusiasts[1] and became the "user's choice" on December 28, 2005 on Newgrounds where it has been viewed over 10.2 million times.[2] It appeared on several other websites including Albino Blacksheep,[3] Newgrounds, YouTube, Transbuddha, and Weebl's Stuff.

The song topped the "Funny Five" on The Dr. Demento Show for several weeks and was the #1 Request for 2006.[4] The video has since been parodied and referenced repeatedly in other flash videos.

Showdown participants

The Ultimate Showdown is a bloody battle started by Godzilla and Batman. This is a list of its participants, in order of appearance in the video, with notes on how they were defeated:

5 Abraham Lincoln Hit by a Care Bear stare. Almost killed Batman.
6 Optimus Prime Saved Batman from Abraham Lincoln. Godzilla bites his head off, although the song may be interpreted that he was meant to survive longer due to the lyrics "Abraham Lincoln tried to polevault onto Optimus Prime" later in the song.

The ultimate victor

The following are people who either did not participate in the battle or were only mentioned. Like the previous section, the following are in the same order as their introductions in the video.
