    Shear Force is, put simply, used in calculations for "cutting"- if you slice a human in half, that's Shear Force. Additionally, if you cut the top of a mountain off, that's also Shear Force. Normally its used in situations where a beam is cut (as in a real life use) so... a calculator for it is rare. As in nonexistant. I tried to find one, but it was not possible. So in case I forget, it's just a little of a reminder blog.

    Shear Force = Area Sheared x Shear Stress

    Shear Stress is Tensile Strength of the Material x 0.6. Area sheared is measured in meters squared. 

    For example, Multi-City Block level feat was done for Bugs Bunny cutting off the state of Florida. 

    Here are some common Tensile Strengths. Tensile Strength should be measured in MPa.…

    Helpful Calculators

    March 18, 2018 by Mr. Bambu

    Just a blog containing all my helpful calculators I use for calcs. Technically I could just write out the work myself, once you know the calculations they aren't hard really, it's just I'm a lazy bum and calculating this way is easier.

    This blog is based on my little recent upgrade for D&D characters, which I have shown to be Subsonic based on their ability to dodge nearby arrows. This means the speed needs a reworking. This is just for normal travel speed- not reactions, not combat, just movement. 

    For this, we will compare the Adventurer's movement speed normally (30 ft / round) to compare. This 30 ft per round translates to 54.70 m/s.

    A lot of this you're just gonna have to bear with me here for. In D&D it is possible (even extremely easy) to dodge point blank arrows, fired from bows, composite bows, or crossbows. That said, point blank would be a few feet, as each "block" is 5 feet. So... probably 2.5 feet (half a block) if they are right next to each other. Let's check it out.

    Normal arrows travel at 225 fps (68.58 m/s), and compound bows can travel at 300 fps (91.44 m/s). Both solidly within Subsonic speeds. Finally, the fastest crossbows go at 440 fps (134.112 m/s). 

    Now. Any character is able to dodge this. More dextrous characters are more likely to dodge it, but that doesn't mean they will always dodge or that others will always fail. 

    We know they do not move more …

    The Giant Elsen is a big boy, dunno how big he would be, though. This is just a mini-calc because I'm bored. 

    Average height for a male head is 23.9 cm. We'll use this image. 442.15 cm is the height of the Elsen's head. It is 18.5x larger than the Batter's head. Average height for a male is 177 cm, and we can assume the Elsen is 18.5x larger than this, too, assuming it is proportional. The Elsen is 3274.5 cm tall (32.75 meters). This makes him almost eleven stories. 

    I'd call this High 8-C, Large Building level

    Continued from here and here. But what spells shall we look at today, to better understand our general power level of the verse? In fact, we will look at relatively low-level spells for now. As in, spells of difficulty levels 3-5. 

    Control Winds (Level 5)

    Erupting Earth (Level 3)

    Melf's Minute Meteors (Level 3)

    Storm Sphere (Level 4)

    Wall of Fire (Level 4)

    Wind Wall (Level 3)

    So. Let's begin. 

    Control Winds is a wind-based transmutation spell (Level 5) that alters the winds of a 100 cubic foot cube. It is powerful enough to ragdoll Adventurers. 

    A hurricane has at least 33 m/s winds, and at most over 70 m/s. 

    Air weighs 1.29 kg/cubic meter

    The volume of our cube is 100 x 100 x 100 (1 million cubic feet, or 28316 cubic meters). Our weight is 36527.6 k…

    Quazar Dragons are Dragons with mouths 28260 km wide. We want to calculate their overall size- one, we need to discover the size to get a proper AP for them. Two, we want to see how powerful the avatars of the Gods are- for each scale of Asgorath is the size of this one dragon. So let's compare.

    We will compare the Quasar Dragon to the Red Dragon, the most common of the dragons in D&D. This is an image of a Red Dragon with its mouth open. Maw is sort of ambiguous, so this will have to do. Comparing the maw to the horn, we get 45198 km.

    So, we'll get a full body image for our full-on comparison. We get 289279 km in total (adding length of tail). By right of sheer size, this makes the dragon Large Planet level (it's length alone is many times l…

    D&D Calc: The Tearfall

    March 15, 2018 by Mr. Bambu

    According to this, it is believed the Gods took a star from the skies and plunged it into the Sea of Fallen Stars in order to punish the Titans. This is believed to have been the event that caused Dragonkind to be born. For whatever godly reason, this didn't just instantly burn the planet to a crisp, but we're going to look past that because Verraketh the Shadowking (the guy who killed Terpenzi) was powered by a full on star that crashed into the planet- so this shit has happened before. 

    NOTE: I'm aware that canonically the story could be taken several ways, pretty much up to DM choice. I believe one is where the Gods simply created a new planet, and another where two planets clashed together. But we're looking at this version to get an id…

    Some guy named Morro creates a storm. (16:45)

    I've got no interest in the verse but an interest in getting requests done. Yobobojojo asked for this. Let's just get it over with, pretty easy. 

    So. Assuming Legos are human height here. Meaning average height for a male- about 171 cm, according to a quick Google search (5.6 feet). That is our height for perception. Plug that into this calculator, we get 4.7 kilometers to the Horizon. 

    Plugging in these measurements, we get a volume for a cylinder of 6.35 x 10^11 cubic meters. Right. Weight is 6.369  x 10^11 kg. Based on this blog, we will use a low-end and a high-end. 

    It only looks like a strong wind storm, so we'll say as a low-end we use the smallest value (1 kJ/kg), and the second value for t…

    The Kraken can sink ships easily. Let's get an estimate on that, shall we? Since I'm on the Pirates train (boat?) already. 

    We never get a great view on the ship's view where it can be compared to anything, so this will be VERY general. Pirate Ships averaged in weight at about 1000 tons. Plugging this into the Weight to Volume calculator, using the Pecan wood volume (its the closest to normal wood), we get a volume of 1204760956.18 cubic centimeters. 

    We know from a previous blog that it takes 0.148 j/cc to fragment wood. Multiplication time. We get 1.783 x 10^8 Joules, or Room level.

    However, a ship is not all wood- according to that website, a ship could have upwards of 70 guns (cannons) on it. Cannons weighed about 1500kg. So 105000 kg of s…

    Continued from here. This time, we'll look at a handful of different spells, including...

    Meteor Swarm

    Prismatic Wall


    Move Earth

    Control Weather

    This 9th level spell summons meteors from the sky. Powerful stuff, right? Let's see how strong that is. We know that it summons four meteors, and that they are actually meteors. We will assume a low-end and a high-end for the spell- one for coming from space, one for simply coming from the atmosphere.

    All of these are 40-ft in radius, meaning we have a total volume for each meteor of roughly 7.59 x 10^9 cubic centimeters. We have four of these. We'll use Aqua Calc to convert this value for stone. Since we don't know the composition or type of stone, we'll use "common generic" to get a mass of …

    Ok, so, some time ago (and by some time, I mean months, like, last year) I made this blog about some My Little Pony revision, that was when the characters became Massively Hypersonic.

    One of the main things on that blog was an upgrade from the top tiers and god tiers of the verse to Tier 4, which was approved, however, was never added, because we still need to decide on who scales to it and who doesn't.

    I made a small summary of the powerscaling on the verse, but that got ignored (probably because it wasn't detailed enough), so, since I'm probably the only person on this wiki who is familiar with the verse, I decided to make this to see if we finally can get this done.

    PTSOXMONKEY99 requested a calc for inFAMOUS in which the city was blown up. Easily calcable. 

    We see an explosion wipe out Empire City and the surrounding area.

    All we need is diameter of the blast. For this, we will compare Empire City to New York City (since it is based on that anyways). 

    This shows the area affected by the blast.

    We know that Manhattan is the smallest of New York's boroughs and is its own separate island, so we will compare it to the smallest island in the screenshot. Manhattan is 21.56 km long.

    Comparing the Manhattan-based island to the width of the explosion, we get 134.90 km for a diameter (radius of 67.45 km). We will use this calculator to get value in megatons. 

    We find that 872 megatons (3.648 x 10^18 Joules) is the m…

    This rabbit hole leads nowhere. Somebody is trying to use whatever value I find for a justification for a ranking of over High 6-A (31.9 petatons). Let's just see where it goes considering turning a Mountain to ash is considered 6-C.

    As a high end, the average house has a square footage of 980.7 feet per person in the house, and there are an average of 2.58 people per house, meaning average square footage is 2530.206 ft^2 (assuming a square base, this means the base is 50.301 x 50.301 feet.

    The average house has two regular stories and an attic (the attic will be a different area volume).

    A storey is considered to be about 10 feet (304.8 cm). So... our volume of a rectangle is finished, with 50604.12 ft^3 as our final tally, or 1.433 x 10^9 c…

    I'm not doing much here, just dividing. I just need a page that can be linked to for a reference of the values in j/cc. 

    FanofRPGs did most of the work for me.

    Basically I just need to convert his results into Joules per Cubic Centimeter. 

    It is a well-established fact that the average weight of a human being is 62kg, so we'll use this as our baseline. 

    Converting weight to volume for a human body, we get a volume of 61386 cubic centimeters.

    Now just divide.

    According to the other calc, it takes 295,258,711.05 Joules to vaporize an average sized human. Dividing that by our total cubic centimeters, we get a final tally of 4809.871 j/cc.

    ShrekAlmighty requested this. Literally never heard of this. So let's go, shall we?

    Basara makes a big-boy crater.

    We will compare the trees to the crater.

    The average height of a Japanese Blue Oak is 40 feet at most, or 914.4 cm.

    Comparing this to the crater, we get 4632 cm in radius (46.32 meters). The width of the middle is 538.64 cm (5.39 meters). It is 670.56 cm tall (6.71 meters). This appears to be an ovoid shape, so we will get the volume of an ovoid and halve it, with the major and minor axis being equal (double the radius- 9264 cm) and with a vertical axis equal to double the height of the cylinder in the middle (1341.12 cm) to get a volume of 6.027 x 10^10 cubic centimeters. We need to halve this to get 3.013 x 10^10.

    There's always been a lot of talk about Kirito freezing an army of players in the Alicization Arc of SAO. 

    They talk about it at VSBW here. Specifically, here. 

    I've seen this talked about before with specifically that number, 30,000 players. I've got nothing to prove its real because, based on statements from a Reddit user named u/MoSBanapple (the guy who made most of the SAO Respect Threads), the feat exists towards the end of the Alicization arc that remains untranslated and may never even be implemented into the light novels, since the arc started as internet web stories. I'm gonna pretend he's correct as he knows a helluva lot more than me. Easy calc, though.

    Ainex234 asked for this to be calc'd. The bomb itself seems REALLY simple to calc, the environmental destruction is more of what should be looked for but eh, he asked for the bomb and I'm not in the mood for a complicated calc.

    Easy. Let's do it.

    According to Ainex, the bomb is stated to have reached Escape Velocity. Escape Velocity is 11.2 km/s (11,200 m/s). 

    So speed is done. 

    Mass of the bomb time.

    The casing of bombs are made of iron. We'll use this as a general material as we don't know what the inside is made of. 

    We just need to find the volume now. For this, we will use this frame. We will compare the size of the gentleman here to the size of the bomb. 

    Average height for a male is 177 cm.

    Comparing this to the bomb using ImageJ, we get a …

    Another Imaginym calc. Basically, Koopa survives a tidal wave. 

    First off, volume. To get height we will compare Koopa to the Building and that to the Wave.

    We know Koopa is 120 cm tall. 

    These are our images.

    Comparing the height of the Koopa to the Building on the corner, we get 296.66 cm. 

    Then using that corner to compare to the highest part of the building, we get a total height of 585.34 cm from the ground to the tallest part of the building.

    Finally, the wave. We cannot get a solid height as we never see the wave in its entirety. That said, we can get a baseline by simply comparing the height of the building to the height of the screen that the wave appears on. We get a height of 1347 cm solid.

    Imaginym found more Goomba stuff. I'm just really bored so HECC it. 

    Goomba smacks a small coin pretty hard. Here we go.

    We know Goomba's height is 98.64 cm tall. 

    Here are our images.

    Comparing this to the height of the coin, we get 7.52 cm when using ImageJ. We can now compare the Goomba's height in the first image to the width of the coin's surface. We get a total of 93.16 cm. 

    Since the coins are just very short cylinders, we can plug this into the equation for a cylinder and get a total of 51258.59 cubic centimeters. 

    Casino Chips are made of Clay.

    We'll use aqua calc to estimate weight. 

    We get a total weight of 89.5 kilos.

    Door breaking is such a common feat it should have pages of its own. That said, it doesn't. So... let's do this, yeah?

    This calc assumes it is a standard wooden door of no significant features. 

    Standard size for a wooden door in a house is 203.2 cm tall, 91.44 cm wide, and 3.334 cm thick. 

    Oak Wood requires 148 kJ/m^3 to break it (0.148 j/cc). This is not V. Frag or anything above- this is baseline door busting.

    Volume is 61947.747 cubic centimeters.

    I literally just did a calc for Didact throwing Chief here. However, a more impressive feat happens- Didact very casually melts the barrier standing between himself and Chief. 

    Using these images. All we need to do is get the volume. 

    First off, we know Chief is 2.13 meters tall. This is higher than world average, which is 1.77 meters, by 120%. 

    We use this so much we should just save it, but we know the height of a head is 23.9 cm. 

    Multiply this by 120% to get 28.7 cm for the height of Chief's head (assuming it is proportional). We know that the barrier is about as tall as a ducked-over Chief, so we will compare his head to his height while crouching. See the third image for an example. We get a total height of 167.30 cm for a crouched over …

    VersusJunkie54 requested a calc on a feat in which the Ur-Didact throws Master Chief. 

    I dunno if this will change anything, this wiki doesn't even have his page on it yet, but HECC it, let's go.

    Seems like a basic KE feat. We know that Master Chief weighs 450kg in his armor. So we have mass already.

    From the video we see the throw start at 1:51 seconds in. About a second and a half later Chief is towards the ceiling, smashing into the wall. 

    Now we just need distance. From the same page as weight we know Chief is 2.13m tall with his armor on. 

    This bit is difficult. We need to compare Chief to a wall segment which is up on the ceiling, then compare that to the distance Chief has fallen, and that will give us our speed. I think.

    Continued from this calc, although on there I only did the feat of creating the Maelstrom, which is probably a bit low since we can't get a definite depth for the whirlpool.

    This blog will be our companion for now. 

    We will also use the distance to horizon calculator provided in said blog. Now, it is fairly difficult to tell how high up the camera is in this scenario, so instead, we will estimate. We know we are fairly far above all of the ships in all screens and the storm still stretches to the horizon. 

    We will use this image for our reference. 

    The ship masts are about 159 feet (4846.32 cm).

    In the 4th frame of the in the first image, we see the exact area of destruction. Han Solo is, according to Blue, officially 1.8 meters tall- just about average. We'll assume he has, therefore, an average sized head, and use that as our baseline for distance.

    Hellbeast1 requested this on VSBW, so I'll calc it here real quick. 

    Whirlpools are cone-like in shape, so we will use that for the volume. 

    So. First, measurements. The video provided, seen here, never gives a good measurement. Specifically, we're looking for a comparison of the ship to the maelstrom. 

    Pirate ships varied in size, but since these are relatively large ones, we will use the high end- 124 feet in length. I can find one semi-suitable screenshot for comparison. 

    It's sort of blurry, but we can compare the length of the singular ship on the left to the width of the whirlpool. It comes out to 156.51 feet in width (4773.473 cm). Halve that for a radius of 2386.737 cm.

    That is at the start of the battle, however. A bit later, the Maels…

    According to this, Metal Gear weights over 226 tons. Firstly I need to convert that, its 205,024,000 g

    It's 49079.7 j/cc

    So it's pretty widely accepted that Koopas can easily shatter bricks with their shells. As a low tier feat, might be worth looking into. So... let's do this.

    From our last Super Mario blogs, we know Goomba's height as 98.64 cm. We will compare the Goomba's height to the bricks and assume them as cubes.

    Here is our image.

    We get 102.93 cm for the size of the brick using ImageJ. 

    1090500.625 cm^3 is our volume for a cube. 

    So we have volume, now just multiply by values. We know bricks are made from concrete, so we will use that value. Fragmentation and V. Frag.

    Here we see Johnathan initiating the vaporization. We can also compare their heights. 

    We will use their heads. The average height of a human head is 23.9 cm, so we'll round to 24.5 because Johnathan is a bit bigger than the average male (by a few inches). We know Joestar's height from here, 195 cm. 

    Using the first image, comparatively, Tarkus' head is 34 cm tall. His head is 139% of Johnathan's height, so we will assume he is 139% of his overall height of 195 cm.

    Using our last image we can compare the Goomba to Yoshi, who is just as tall as Mario- 155 cm (see last calc). From this, we get 98.64 cm tall for Goomba. Using a screen from the video, seen here, we can compare the Goomba's height to that of the Boulder's. 

    The boulder appears largely egg shaped, so we will use this calculator to discover volume. But first! Measurements!Comparing the Goomba's height to that of the Boulder's, we get 189.70 cm. Comparing the boulder's height to that of the e…

    Imaginym of VSBW requested this calc. Seems simple enough, biggest issue is speed calc-ing. So... let's go.

    In the video here we see the ball is made of an unknown material and is about the same height as Yoshi. Yoshi's height is gonna be comparable to Mario's height in this game. Mario is 155 cm tall. 

    So 155 cm for Yoshi, compared to the ball we have 122.15 diameter of the ball. 61.075 cm radius makes the volume 9.54×105 cm^3.

    Using this calculator, we can plug in the volume and different materials. So I'll use weight for all of the possible materials suggested by Imaginym- Glass, and Steel. 

    Weight for a Glass Ball: 1540.71 kg

    Weight for a Steel Ball: 7536.6 kg

    Now to calculate for speed. 

    Watching the video at 0.25 speed, we see the ball move…

    In this blog I calc'd strength needed to crush the rock in Tetsucabra's mouth. Kulu-Ya-Ku has a similar feat, so I'll calc that here as a little side note thing.

    Once again we'll be comparing the Kulu's boulder to the size of the Hunter. This one is relatively small, so I'm not expecting anything big from this.

    We'll be using this frame for comparison.

    Using ImageJ to compare size, we get 3.66 feet for the diameter of the boulder (111.557 cm). Halving this and plugging into the equation for a volume of a sphere, we find the volume is roughly 7.270 x 10^5 cubic centimeters.

    Low End Calc:

    20 j/cc x 727000 cc = 1.454 x 10^7 Joules, Wall level

    High End Calc:

    69 j/cc x 727000 cc = 5.016 x 10^7 Joules, Room level

    Small, easy calc.

    Dinoman0310 requested this back on VSBW, and even though I haven't fought a Tetsucabra before, I know he can crush rocks, which is always reliable. So yeah.

    Basically, a low-tier amphibian Monster can crush big spherical boulders in his jaws as an attack, to the point where the debris is launched out as shrapnel. 

    Okay, looking at this video, we see a good point to compare the player (Hunter) to the boulder. 

    Using ImageJ and assuming the height of the Hunter is 6 feet (as we do), we find a comparable height of 11.53 feet for the boulder (351.434 cm).

    Our volume for the sphere, using half of that as a radius, is found to be 2.27 x 10^7 cm^3.

    We will provide a Low-End and a High-End.

    Low End: Concrete

    22700000 cc x 20 j/cc = 4.540 x 10^8 Joules

    I hate this, I did all the work and then my laptop was kicked because honestly why not. So now time for a pissed off calc. This guy makes mud. Let's calc it.

    Using AquaCalc we find 7 x 7 x 3 of mud (roughly the dimensions of the blob emitted) weighs 7933.87 kg.

    So we have mass. Now we need speed. You know, the actual hard part that took me a long time before my computer was savagely attacked. 

    Using a frame by frame analysis tool and with this gif (captured from the video), we see the attack start at the 19th frame and impact comes a bit later. By frame 22 it has moved considerable distance. We can then compare that to the Hunter's roll, which was at 30 mph and going the same way. 

    The area travelled was 16.96 feet for the Hunter. 

    That compare…

    Barroth can shatter boulders like these. Comparing to the tree (which is full sized), this is a BIG boulder. 

    So. Let's check this out. 

    Height is ~20 feet (609.6 cm) when compared to the tree. 

    When compared, diamater is 18.37 feet (559.918 cm). Looks more cylindrical to me, so we'll be using that as our shape basis.

    Our volume is found to be 1.501 x 10^8 cm^3

    Now. Barroth clearly destroys nearly all of the Boulder, so I'd say Violent Fragmentation is the definition of this- much of the rock becomes simply dust, while the rest can be found in small fragments around the place. 

    We'll use Concrete as a Low-End, and Cement as a High-End (Low-End more likely but eh whatever)

    Low End: 20 j/cc x 1.501 x 10^8 cc = 3.002 x 10^9 Joules, Building level

    Uragaan, big papa rollee pollee, emits flame in vast quantities. That's about it.

    Assuming Uragaan emits flame roughly one meter out from his form and up to about one meter in height (the flame reaches your head when crouching). This is an extremely lazy write-up for this, but I'm trying to do this ASAP. 

    We find from here that Fire has a density of 0.3 kg/m^3. 

    Our dimensions for affected area is 2629.18 x 549.16 x 100 centimeters (width taken from Lavasioth width and modified to make sense in this context). So our volume is 144384048.88 centimeters cubed.

    Mass = Volume x Density

    Mass = 144.384 m^3 x 0.3kg/m^3 = 43.3512 kg of fire

    Q1 = mc(ΔΤ)

    We will use this calculator to calculate the energy produced.

    Plugging in all numbers (change in heat, wh…

    Lavasioth generates lava. Big splosions, paths, etc. Lava is melted rock, so we'll be using 5,000 j/cc (taken from this calc, in which a similar feat was done- lava generation). Moving on. Just wanna see how powerful this attack is and if it fits where I estimate it to fit.

    We've already established 5,000 j/cc as our baseline for Lava generation, which means all we have to do is discover volume. 

    First off, ground area. For this, we'll use Lavasioth's body length- it generates ~2.5x it's length as it moves that amount for the attack. Attack can be found in this video (along with his other attacks such as spitting lava). Note that this attack I'm calc-ing is EXTREMELY casual. Since it is just a path, we'll assume one inch as the height of the…

    My first attempt of calculating anything:

    K.O attacks the moon:

    According to Camtasia, from the moment the attack leaves K.O's hand and the moment it explodes at the moon, 3.10 seconds have passed.

    The moon is 238,900 miles away from Earth.

    238,900 / 3.10 = 77064.516129

    K.O's attack speed: 77064 miles per second, or Mach 361581, which 41% of the speed of light.


    What do you guys think?

    Alien Alloys and other materials they create are notated time and time again to be vastly above any Earth material in terms of durability. This is what the XCOM operatives create their armor out of down the road, so this seems relavant. However, I'm not all that interested in the armor- I'm interested in shattering walls made out of this material. 

    We have no definite basis for how strong these materials are (materials can be found here and here. 

    As for values we should use. The people here seem to think 5x stronger is a good basis, however that will be our mid-end. I'll be including a high-end (20x) and a low-end (3x). We have no idea on the accuracy for any of these, but... you know. It's a start. We will use steel as it is the most equat…

    Basically, this thing is a badass weapon and needs a calculation. Described as an "outdoor toy", it destroys pretty much anything within its radius, up to and including huge portions of UFOs. Even soldiers on the outermost rim of the explosion will be killed (probably). Anything closer to the epicenter, unarmored, is almost certainly doomed to die. 

    This is my first calc of this kind, so bear with me. My apologies if it is wrong. Let's begin. 

    This should be simple enough, much like all of my calcs. I am a calc noob, after all. 

    So, from that page I linked above, we find that the blast radius is 11 "blocks", which look to me like meters. Here's an image, for reference. 

    Basically, plug in this value of 11.5 meters (the shot from the Blaster La…

    Deathwing, AKA Neltharion, Dragon Aspect of the Earth, shattered it with his "Cataclysm", an event that caused notable changes all throughout the world. Basic information of it can be found here. So while he didn't exactly "shatter" it, he caused ruptures and base level damage all over the place, including awakening places in the ocean and forming enormous mountains. 

    Multiple country sized ares were destroyed beyond recognition or permanently altered in some major way (that is, some were completely submerged in water, or ripped in half- these in of themselves are 6-B feats, but let's see how much fracturing the planet fares for our Draconic buddy, hm?

    Pretty simple. Ragnaros, the head honcho of the Fire Elementals and follower of Deathwing, is stated to burn mountains down with his very presence. Sounds like a helluva feat and right now he's a mere Mountain level, possibly Large Mountain level because of it. I'd like to see if we can't change that. 

    Assumption wise, here's what we're looking at.

    1. The mountain in question is comparable to Mount Everest and is composed of granite

    2. Melting is vaporization due to the presence of steam rising in the aftermath

    Pretty simple stuff. We can pull the values we need from here, we will use three values here based on estimations from various mathematical minds. 

    First off, value for vaporization of granite is 6077872j/kg. So multiplication is basical…

    Bugs Bunny Respect Thread

    Bugs Bunny is an animated cartoon character, best known for his starring roles in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of theatrical short films produced by Warner Bros. during the Golden Age of American Animation.

    Also, thanks for DoctorMooDB on Deviantart, for making the Bugs Bunny bio that I used to find those feats. I was mostly just looking for the sources.

    D&D and Challenge Ratings

    February 3, 2018 by Mr. Bambu

    I know that this is typically counter-intuitive to what this wiki would stand for. But hear me out. I find this to be valid becuase Challenge Rating is used in the D&D setting to describe how difficult a foe should be for a group of four adventurers of that level, meaning a similar CR is a statement of "this enemy is equatable to this enemy". Moving on. Note that these are 3.5e Challenge Ratings- for example, 5e Challenge Ratings are vastly lower (a CR 7 beast in 3.5e would be roughly a CR 2 in 5e). 

    In this blog I will include where on the actual Dungeons and Dragons page this places them, by tier. 

    So. This is something I've been looking at. Currently only a handful of feats define the D&D-verse, up to and including the Vecna feat of harmi…

    This was inspired by the Rain Shield of some Minecraft mod, which vaporized all rain on the planet forever. No rain was able to fall. So... how strong would that sort of thing to be? 

    The assumptions are the following:

    1. The planet maintains comparable rainfall to the US, namely, we will be using Delaware (45.7 inches, pulled from here)

    2. We will be using Earth as a Planet, Jupiter as a Large Planet, and Mercury as a Small Planet.

    3. All rain is vaporized.

    First off, we need to get the surface area of these planets. 

    Jupiter: 23.71 billion square miles

    Earth: 196.9 million square miles

    Mercury: 28.8 million square miles

    Next, we need to find the weight of all the water falling. 

    We know that there is 45.7 average inches of annual rain.

    This blog is being made to describe which Dark Souls characters exist in which tiers, and explaining why. This is more of an organization blog than anything else, just to keep the reasons for characters being placed at their tiers. Most of this is scaling, and most weapons and such will be omitted as their tiers are derived from their user's AP (save for rare exceptions such as the Archdragon Bell). 

    Overall, the verse is relatively well-collected up to 6-B or High 6-B (potentially). That said, after this it jumps up to Tier 4. So... let's go.

    Before we start I'd like to state that I am not an MLP fan. At all. I dislike it profusely. Buuuut this feat needs calc'd, since I disagree largely with what we have right now and with what VSBW has. Dodging lightning? Great feat. Good basis. Solid. This is my first time trying to calc speed based off of things like singular frames, so forgive me. I have literally almost no tools to do this with. I'm using the computer's calculator and a frame dissection thing. 

    Anyways. Calc.

    Here we see Rainbow Dash dodge lightning at point blank range. Using this, we can get a pretty good understanding of her speed- and I do consider it reaction and movement speed purely because she manages to act on this INSTANTLY. I do not consider it a feat of aim dodg…

    So, Hasbro messed up once again and leaked some episodes from Season 8 before they were supposed to be released. So, I watched them one by one, and was going to write a list of feats, but then I decided to just go ahead and add some other feats from past episodes, so here we go.

    Windigos are a race of ghostly horse-like creatures, they are winter spirits that feed off of the fighting and hatred between others and create blizzards and freezing weather.

    The feat is pretty straight up:

    "Then... this is our fault. We three tribes... we brought this blizzard to our home by fightin' and not trustin' each other. Now it's destroyin' this land, too."

    ^ By "this land", she means Equestria, which is country sized.

    This is backed up in a later episode, whe…
