In the culture of graffiti, there is a rule on the street. If a graffiti artist does not like a certain graffiti work, he or she will create a new one next to it, resulting in a situation like a battle on the wall, where the audience will be the judges. If the challenger removes or covers a work by others, the action will be considered disrespecting, and the creator of that certain work will usually go find the works of the challenger and destroy them, like a form of revenge.

在塗鴉文化中,街頭上有一項不成文的規矩,如果塗鴉者不喜歡某一塗鴉作品,那麼他會在此作品旁創作一個新的作品,就像牆上的戰爭,而觀眾會成為評審。如果挑戰者破壞或遮蓋了此作品,這種行為則會被認為是不尊重,而該作品的創作者將在大街上尋找挑戰者的作品,然後像復仇一樣銷毀它們。
