The Double Battle, introduced originally on the The Amazing Race en Discovery Channel 2, under an Intersection and officially created as a separate task in HaMerotz LaMillion 2 as the Double Battle, is a challenge in which 2 teams must compete against each other.

Depending on each version, the Double Battle may have a different title. It is referred to as an Intersection on The Amazing Race (Latin America) and The Amazing Race Norge, the Duel on the The Amazing Race Philippines, the Face Off on the The Amazing Race Canada and The Amazing Race China, and the Head-to-Head on The Amazing Race (US).

The team that wins receives their next clue, while the team that loses must wait for another opponent and start over. Ultimately, the last team remaining at the challenge must serve a pre-determined time penalty before they can continue racing. In The Amazing Race Philippines 2, an extra task is imposed for the last team instead.

It first appeared in Season 30 of the original US version as the "Head-to-Head", instead appearing immediately before the Pit Stop, and therefore the last team remaining would simply be eliminated.
