The Rooster Teeth Wiki

“Hard Nettin” is a recurring segment on the FunHaus show “The Dude Soup Podcast”. It was created by host Lawrence Sontag as a way of finding what is “the most internet thing”. The segment was originally referred to as “Dude Soup Battle” until “Hard Nettin” was suggested by James Willems in “Dude Soup” episode 109, the third instalment of the segment. 

“Hard Nettin” is set up with the prior weeks Champion, facing off against a new competitor as decided by Lawrence, with suggestions on occasion from the community. Each Champion is selected by the podcast guests, with ties being decided by the community via Strawpoll. Criteria stated by the guests as to why a combatant wins includes:

  • Individuality
  • Popularity (or lack thereof)
  • Whether or not the combatant was created as a joke
  • If the combatant is something you would only find out about through the internet
  • If the combatant could only exist because of the internet
  • In Lawrence' own words "Something that it is an instance through which you can view the wondeful diversity of the human race, through the internet"
