Celebrity Deathmatch

"Oh yeah? Well, you're just jealous you never got nominated for an Oscar!"

Being one of the youngest combatants to appear on the show, Osment appears in the third season against former child actor Macaulay Culkin, in the second fight of his designated episode. For this fight, to commemorate the fact that both Osment and Culkin are well-known child star icons, the ring was adorned with various playground equipment, including a swingset, slide, sandbox and seesaw. To offer support, co-star Bruce Willis served as Osment's cornerman.

Even before the fight begins, Osment is intimidated by Culkin, proven when his opponent bites off his little finger just to sign an autograph for Mills Lane's grandson. When the fight begins, Osment hits Culkin with his bag, dealing hardly any damage and resulting in Culkin throwing him onto the seesaw and catapaulting him head-first into the sandbox. As Osment is about to cry, Willis tells him that he needs to be strong and offers some words of inspiration. After the pep-talk, Osment throws sand in Culkin's eyes, temporarily blinding him as he attempts to grab his jugular vein. However, his attempt is unsuccessful and Osment is thrown across the ring. Osment taunts Culkin by pointing out how he was never nominated for an Oscar award during his career, enraging Culkin. Culkin grabs Osment, removes his shirt and pushes him down the slide on his back, where the metal is revealed to be burning hot.

Osment counters by tackling Culkin and biting off his left kneecap. Osment is then thrown onto the swingset and is pushed repeatedly, flying over the bar at high speed and eventually being thrown into the sandbox. Mills checks on Osment, who starts seeing visions of past combatants who had died in their respective matches. Culkin openly mocks him and dismisses Osment's warnings not to tease him, causing Osment to set the ghosts on him. Osment watches as the ghosts proceed to tear Culkin apart before being declared the winner.
