  1. So found this overlooked little thing, lets see if we can make something out of it

    So it wasn't water or wind that made the grad canyon but an Angel, one Angel (and a mook at that)

    Lets figure out how power it takes to do that


    5.45 trillion yards^3 = 4.16 trillion m^3 = 4.1668239760128e+18 cc

    This is rock we're talking about, and to carve it out smoothly like that, you'd need to pulverize it not just crack it

    Pulverization of Rock = 214.35 j/cc
    Energy required to carve the grand canyon= 4.1668239760128e+18 * 214.35 = 893158719258343680000 J , or 213.47 gigatons of TNT

    That's the sum total of energy you'd need, but obviously this didn't happen in an instant considering the shape of the canyon

    So assuming she did it over time, I'll split this over three time frames
    high end= 1 hour
    mid end= 1 day
    low end= 1 week

    High End: 213.47 GT / (3600) = 59.297 megatons of TNT per sec. (City level)
    Mid End: 213.47 GT / (86400) = 2.47 megatons of TNT per sec. (Small-city level)
    Low End: 213.47 GT / (604800) = 352.96 kilotons of TNT per sec. (Town level+)

    Now these result are in-line with the statements we've heard in regards to angel power in the show.
  2. Lets try to put a number on that shall we?

    first of all,
    what exactly is Atlas lifting in GoW-verse?

    Well we know the world is a planet like our own from Ascension, and we know the underworld is literally underground and atlas lifts the mortal world above it

    WoG clarifies that it is the crust of the earth that Atlas is supporting instead of the damaged Pillar of the World


    Okay to calc this I'll first get Atlas' height

    Kratos' height = 22 px = 1.96m
    Atlas' Eye ball (horizontally) = 106 px = 9.44 m

    For an average human, the eyeball length would be 24.8 mm, or 0.0248 m
    So Atlas' eyeball is 380.791 times larger

    An average human is about 1.72m tall, so applying the same ratio we can put Atlas' height at about 654.96 m, a titan indeed.

    To get energy out of this I am going off the assumption that if atlas can hold the thing above his head for years without tiring and even hold it with just three out of his four hands without extra strain then he can probably lift it at least 20% of his total height.

    Another thing to note is that g would be higher as he is closer to the planet center (it should be around 10 from what I've found), but I'll use the lowest value for earth's surface to low-ball (that'd be 9.7)

    1/5th of Atlas' height is 131 m
    The mass of earth's crust is approx. 2.6e22 kg

    PE for that would be= 2.6e22*9.7*131= 33038200000000000000000000J, or 7.896 Petatons of TNT

    Even if you want to cut it by 4 for each of his arms its still nearly 2 Petatons.

    If you want to go with the full height then that would be
    2.6e22*9.7*654.96= 165180912000000000000000000J, or 39.48 Petatons.
  3. Feat in question is from IM3


    Tony gets the alarm on his Dora watch that the armor finished re-charging so he summons it.
    He is in Miami and he left the armor back in Tennessee.

    From the video I found that it arrived within 84 seconds from the moment he summoned it.

    Distance from Miami to Tennessee varies, so I'll just use the figure mentioned in the movie

    832 miles are 1338.97 km, or 1338970 m

    and so
    v=1338970/84= 15940.12 m/s or Mach 46.8

    Hypersonic+ Ironman confirmed
  4. So in this ep. from S6 Dean thinks the source of the problem plaguing this city is an item known as "Gabriel's horn of Truth".
    He calls cas and asks him for help, so he zips around and...


    From the video is seems he was actually gone for 6 seconds.
    Now, the city in question is Calumet City, Illinois which has the land area of 18.6 km^2
    this is 18,600,000 m^2

    Considering it is a small item he's looking for and that he has to go into buildings and rooms I think a fair low-end estimate is that he'd be able to spot it from 5m away in both directions, so I'll divide the area by 10 to get the distance.

    Distance traveled= 1860000 m
    Search speed= 1860000/6= 310000 m/s or Mach 910.9

    *You could argue there was teleporting involved in this, but the speed should still apply to reactions since Cas would have to actively look for and process information that fast.
  5. Doing a music blog, well, because.

    This represents the stuff I listen to the most atm.
    Oh, and by "quintessential" I mean the songs the I think represent the tone of said artist/band the best, and not necessarily the best songs of said band in my opinion (most aren't actually).


    1. Judas Priest
    the quintessential priest song: Raw Deal

    The Metal Gods.
    Excluding those two ripper albums, all of their releases featuring the god of all metal singers are on my plus side.
    What I really like about them if the fact they have re-invented and reshaped their style over the decades and managed to get excellent outings with every turn.

    As for the song I picked, I find it to be quite descriptive of the band.
    First part is an upbeat with 70s-80s vibes and second part just blows you away.


    2. Metallica
    the quintessential metallica song: Whiplash

    Yeah, a lot of people give this band crap. y'know what I think?
    They have very good songs on all of their albums. Not just the first 4 (legendary) ones.
    Yes, even the generally bad St.Anger has some decent tracks on it.

    They also made S&M which I adore.

    As for the song pick, the one that really captures the bad IMO is Whiplash, off of the first album.
    Why? listen to it and you'll figure out

    GOAT version of this song

    3. Night Wish
    the quintessential NW song: The Passion and the Opera

    Perhaps the most well known symphonic metal band, well it's for a good reason.
    They have never released a bad album, even while changing lead singer twice, and they have many songs that I consider to be masterpieces.

    but if I have to pick one to represent, it'd be this one

    from the best album

    4. Rise Against
    the quintessential RA song: Dancing for Rain

    I do not always (heck, most of the time I don't) agree with their message or beliefs, but they sure do make some damn fine music. And for that they deserve respect.
    Some of their songs just hit you right in the feels.
    Oh, and pretty much like NW they haven't actually released a bad album, though some of their albums do grow on you over time.

    And whenever I 'm reminded of this band, this is the track I first think of.


    5. Dio
    the quintessential Dio song: The Last in Line

    The king of metal is only so low on this list because I haven't gotten around to fully listen to his discography and because some of his better works are with bands other than his titular one. Still he has some awesome stuff under the banner of Dio, including this badass song

  6. So this came up, and I calc'd it



    Okay, starting with just how big is the Bifrost orb

    Heimdall is standing in the center, so I can scale him to the diameter

    Heimdall=125 px = 1.9m
    Orb diameter =1366 px = 20.76m
    considering not all of the diameter appears on-screen and that it's the internal one (wall thickness and all) I think I can safely round it up to 21m.

    Orb diameter= 70 px = 21m
    Blast radius= 986 px = 295.8m

    Considering it was an omni-directional blast I'll shape it as 1/4 an elipsoid with the blast radius as length and width.
    Depth however is considerably smaller, 1/4 a diameter won't work here.

    I'll use half the orbs diameter as a safer measurement, so approx 10m

    Volume of elipsoid is therefore= 4/3*pi*(295.8)^2*10= 3655929.843 m^3
    1/4 of that is 913982.46 m^3

    That is the volume of water dispersed
    Density of water= 1000 kg/m^3
    Mass of water= 1000*913982.46= 913982460.69 kg

    Timeframe is 5.47s from watching the video on rowvid
    Speed of dispersion= 295.8/5.47= 54.076 m/s

    Ke= 1/2*m*v^2 = 1/2*(913982460.69)*(54.076)^2 = 1336378723772.6 J
    or 319.402 tons of TNT
    Multi city-block level+

    Final Tally:
    This is both a dc and durability feat as thor and loki took it point blank without much injury.
  7. It's time we look into that uncalculated speed feat of Mjolnir in The Dark World.


    Thor falls off a tower and summons his hammer that was already out of the atmosphere.
    Mjolnir comes back and misses him by the nick of time as he falls into another portal.


    So first I'll get the timeframe.
    Thor and Malekith were in free-fall from 30 St Mary Axe which is 180 m tall.
    He didn't actually summon mjolnir until he already fell some distance, but to simplify things and keep it low-end I'll use the time for the entire fall+the time mjolnir missed by.

    In free fall
    t= 6.0578 s

    Mjolnir missed him by 10 frames, which are 0.4 s
    Timeframe= 6.4578 s

    Now for distance

    Lenght of Britain = 136 px
    Frame height= 427 px

    2*atan(136/(427/tan(70/2)))= 25.144381105796 degrees

    According to google maps the lenght of Britain is:

    Using Angsize calculator I get
    d= 1981.2 km = 1981200 m

    * The distance between mjolnir itself and POV is negligible (some 10 meters or so)

    v= 1981200/6.4578= 306790.58 m/s , or Mach 901.55

    Final Tally:
    Dat MHS MCU :bury
  8. Noticed an impressive feat for base Mushra while I was doing my respect thread, seems like an upgrade so lets calc it

    Feat here:
    http://[Blocked Domain]/shinzo-episode-17
    at 13:20


    Caris went through the wall, so the hole has to be at least as tall and wide as he is.

    Mushra's height in base is 1.3m

    184 px = 1.3m
    Caris' height= 822 px = 5.828 m
    Caris' width = 218 px = 1.545 m

    Now for the depth of the hole, I'll use the same dimensions as the debris from the attack, since I can't get a clear view of the hole due to dust.

    Yakumo is a 14 yo japanese girl, so her height is about 1.56m

    534 px = 1.56 m
    Hole's depth = 44 px = 0.128 m

    Volume destroyed = 5.828*1.545*0.128= 1.157 m^3, or 1157401.51 cc

    The wall seems mostly concrete, but it is plated with steel on the inner side, so I'll use 90% of the volume as concrete and 10% as steel.

    V(concrete)= 1041661.36 cc
    V(steel)= 115740.15 cc

    Fragmentation of concrete = 6 j/cc
    Fragmentation of steel = 208 j/cc

    Energy= (1041661.36*6)+(115740.15*208)= 30323919.36 J, or 0.0072 tons of TNT

    Small-building level base eterrans.

    Final Tally:
  9. Probably the last shinzo calc I'll do, as all the other feats I've seen are covered by powerscaling from ones I've already calc'd

    After breaking out of his prison, a yet Incomplete Lanancuras (at his weakest basically) shows some fools why they shouldn't mess with him.

    http://[Blocked Domain]/shinzo-episode-27

    Lan pretty much raises volcanos and causes eruptions on a global scale.

    Let's try to quantify this.

    Raising the mountain:

    That shit is pretty massive
    * The width of the mountain actually covers the entire screen and then some, so using the width of the frame seems fine to me

    The multi-story building in the backround is what I've used to scale.

    Doing some-research on high building in Paris, the ones here seem to fit the Front de Seine
    Making the building 98m tall

    I'll shape the mountain as a truncated cone:
    Building height = 62 px = 98m
    Mountain height = 267 px = 422.032m
    Mountain Diameter= 1024 px = 1618.58m
    Mountain top width= 233 px = 368.29m

    Using this calculator I got a volume of:
    370,304,625.78661 m^3

    Now I'll subtract the hollow part of the volcano
    shaping as a cylinder:
    Radius= 184.145m
    Height= 422.032m
    Volume of cylinder= pie*r^2*h = 3.14*(184.145)^2*422.032= 44958842.04 m^3

    Total Volume of mountain= 370304625.78661- 44958842.04= 325345783.7466 m^3

    Most common rocks Volcanos are made of is basalt
    Basalt has a denisty ranging 2800-3100 kg/m^3.

    this site lists solid basalt as 3011 kg/m^3 so I'll use that.

    Mass of volcano= 325345783.7466*3011= 979616154861.0126 kg

    Viewing the video frame by frame I found it took 18 frames to raise the mountain with each frame being 0.04 sec.

    Timeframe= 18*0.04= 0.72s
    Speed= 422.032/0.72= 586.155 m/s

    Ke= 0.5*m*v^2=0.5*979616154861.0126*(586.155)^2= 168287443864299765.3013 J
    or 40.221 Megatons of TNT

    Raising Lava:

    I'll be using the same method used by Wombat on his pokemon calc.
    Assuming the lowest depth of magma to be 2000m underground I can calc its ke.

    Building= 62 px = 98m
    Height of lava eruption= 643 px = 1016.35 m
    Total height of lava cylinder= 1016.35+2000= 3016.35 m
    Width of lava cylinder= 124 px = 196m
    Volume of cylinder= pie*r^2*h = 3.14*(98)^2*3016.35= 91008877.379 m^3

    I'll use the low-end density for basalt in this case

    m=91008877.379*2800= 254824856659.23 kg

    The entire eruption took 20 frames, so 0.8 sec.
    v=d/t=3016.35/0.8= 3770.4375 m/s (Mach 11.08)
    Ke= 0.5*m*v^2=0.5*254824856659.23*(3770.4375)^2= 1811320428741472460.946J
    or 432.916 Megatons of TNT

    Total Energy:

    Mountain raising+Lava Raising= 40.221+432.916= 473.137 Megatons

    But wait, there's more!
    As seen in the video, Paris isn't the only place that was hit with this shit.
    At least 3 other locations has been hit too (probably a lot more, but we don't see that)

    So to get the sum total, I'll multiply by 4, which nets 1.892 Gigatons of TNT
    Small-island level

    Final Tally:
  10. http://[Blocked Domain]/shinzo-episode-21

    Starting at 3:14, the two Mushrambos fly from the battlefield to do battle "as far away from yakumo as possible".
    On their way they pass the land of insect enterran, which as we've seen is located on the US eastern seaboard. (since we've seen the statue of liberty). They eventually stop at an old airfield in the desert and fight.
    Afterwards Satan Mushrambo flies back to Yakumo and tries to kill her, but he is stopped by Mushra, Sago & Kutal who also flew back to the city.

    I'll try to get speed off this feat.

    The easy part is the destination.
    Seeing as the they flew through NYC to a desert I can safely assume the destination is in New Mexico, which is the closest desert to NYC in the US (it could be also arizona or somewhere further west, but lets lowball).

    The tricky part is actually the origin point.
    The Bird Eterran kingdom is seen to be in Egypt due to Pyramids, The Great Sphinx and whatnot.
    This would suggest the city the battle takes place in is Cairo. However we are also shown that Reserpine's palace is actually the Sagrada Familia cathedral that is located in Barcelona, and is somehow close to the pyramids. yeah...
    This is fucked up.

    So I'll just use Barcelona as a low-end origin point, and Cairo as a high end.

    Low end:

    Low-end Distance= 8945.05 km


    High-end Distance= 11801.69 km

    * Yeah, I know the Google maps measurements seem off, but I scaled it in paint to make sure and it fits.

    Timeframe in the episode is wonky due to cutting away from the scene and whatnot.
    We can however gather that the entire episode takes place within the same morning.

    I think a safe lowball is to say the entire thing took 2 hours, which is 1 hour back/forth.


    Low-end= 8945050/3600= 2484.7361 m/s, or Mach 7.301

    High-end= 11801690/3600= 3278.2472 m/s, or Mach 9.633

    *I tried doing a quick calc of the time it took them to disappear from the horizon, it also nets something around mach 9

    Tell me if you think the timeframe is wrong or something :catthinks

    aaaand I'll stop here because I'm having a blackout and can't remember characters

    Placement Suggestions would be most welcomed :hm
  12. So I'm going over this show looking for quantifiable feats, might make a respect thread once I'm done

    Here are a bunch of feats from the first 11 episodes:

    1. Kutal pushes subway cars

    The gang requires some transportation in ruined NYC.
    They hop on an old subway car and kutal gets it going.

    http://[Blocked Domain]/shinzo-episode-2

    I'm going to assume said car module is this one:
    Since it fits the time the show aired.

    Kutal is pushing two cars here (as seen later), with a combined weight of 75,000 kg.

    I'm assuming that to get the cars going by themselves he was pushing them in a similar acceleration as irl, hench 4 kmph/s, or 1.111 m/s^2

    Timeframe between that beginning of movement untill the car gets going on its own is 6 seconds.

    So, dv= a*dt= 1.111*6=6.666 m/s
    Thats the change in speed, looking for distance I'll assume:
    median velocity*time= 20 m (rounded from 19.998)

    F=m*a=75000*1.111= 83325 N
    W=F*d=83325*20= 1666500 J

    Wall-level+, but it's only for base-form anyway.

    2. Mushra is a dick to mountains

    During a battle with some Spider Enterrans, Mushra decides that "fuck this shit" and nose dives into their hideout (inside a mountain), blowing up most of it.

    http://[Blocked Domain]/shinzo-episode-3

    You can't see the entire thing in this shot, but in other shots it appears that the part displayed in this screencap is roughly 2/3 of the whole spire.

    Double story building= 12 px = 6m
    Front hill= 44 px = 22m

    assuming all the hills are roughly the same size
    Back hill= 30 px= 22m
    2/3ds of the Spire= 283 px = 207.533m
    Full Spire height= 311.3m
    Spire width at base= 153 px = 112.2m

    Shaping it like a cone:
    V=1.03e6 m^3

    The spire is home to the spider-enterrans so I'll assume it's about 50% hollow. Moreover, as seen at the end of the episode, Mushra did not destroy the whole thing, about 1/3 remained standing.

    the volume I'll work with is therefore:
    V= 343333.33 m^3, or 343333333333.33 cc

    Fragmentation of rock= 8 j/cc
    Energy= 343333333333.33*8= 2746666666666.66 J, or 656.47 tons of TNT
    Multi City-Block+ level

    3. Mushra, Sago & Kutal VS Gyasa

    Two speed feats here

    http://[Blocked Domain]/shinzo-episode-9
    3:25 and 10:13
    Starting with Mushra's feat

    2*atan(105/(768/tan(70/2)))= 10.936693172194 degrees

    2*atan(169/(768/tan(70/2)))= 17.518738966294 degrees

    Mushra's height= 1.85m
    Gyasa's head= 0.223m

    Using angular calculator:
    Distance=9.6624-0.72364= 8.93876m

    Mushra's red flare is visable in front of gyasa within 1 frame
    1 frame= 0.04s

    v= 8.93876/0.04= 223.469 m/s
    Faster than the eye can track.


    Second feat is Kutal rapid punching Gyasa.
    Viewing the video frame by frame we can see Kutal throws 3 punches each frame.
    Meaning he's throwing the punches and retracting his arm three times between frames, so he moves the distance of his arm

    Kutal's height= 2.15m
    Arm (fist shaped) lenght*= 0.419*height= 0.90085m
    Distance= 5.4051

    v=5.4051/0.04= 135.1275 m/s
    a bit slower than Mushra.

    4.Mushrambo VS Hyper Gyasa

    http://[Blocked Domain]/shinzo-episode-11
    To calc this , I'll first have to get an understanding of how tall are the hills they are fighting around

    Scaling from a previous ep:

    Pretty much all the hills in the fight are a result of splitting this one.
    In my previous entry I have already found out that the average height of forest canopy here is at least 25m.

    Tree height= 36 px = 25m
    Hill height= 263 px = 182.638m

    Now for the speed feat:

    Mushrambo and Hyper Gyasa are engaged in an aerial battle.
    Each light is them crossing swords. I picked the movement that seemed most in-line angle-wise and in the front.

    We can see the top part of a hill in the front.
    I'll call it the top 1/4 for conservative measures.

    Top part of the hill= 71 px = 182.638/4= 45.66m
    Distance crossed= 614 px = 394.858 m

    Timeframe is 8 frames= 8*0.04= 0.32s
    *from the point the light starts to fade untill the next one appears.

    v=d/t= 394.858/0.32= 1233.932 m/s, or Mach 3.626
    Finally some supersonic values.

    Final Tally:
  13. So I did this calc a couple of days ago: http://www.narutoforums.com/blog.php?b=33982

    But everything seemed off going with KE
    it turned out the Solar fragment that blew up two planets effortlessly wasn't even planet level. not much sense.

    So, I scaled it from a different frame, which made it seem larger than earth, also doesn't make sense.

    I initially settled for using Venus GBE as the absolute low-end, but then I remembered "hey wasn't there this method that they used with the Frieza feat?"

    So I'm revising this calc using Mass ejection speed for Venus' explosion.


    Venus diameter= 12103.6 km = 421 px
    1 px= 12103.6/421= 28.7496 km

    Distance debris crossed = 423 px = 423*28.7496= 12161.0993 km, or 12161099.2874 m

    Mass of Venus = 4.8675e24 kg

    watching the episode frame by frame, I get that 1 frame=0.04s

    I'll use the point of impact as a low end timeframe and the start of mass movement as high end.

    Point of Impact at 773.41 s, mass movement at 775.01 s
    Low balling the time frame I'll use 775.45s as the time the debris crossed the distance.

    Timeframe [Low-end]=775.45-773.41= 2.04 s
    Timeframe [High-end]=775.45-775.01= 0.44 s

    Speed [Low-end]= 12161099.2874/2.04= 5961323.1801 m/s = 1.9%c
    Speed [High-end]= 12161099.2874/0.44= 27638862.0168 m/s = 9.2%c

    Using Relativistic KE calculator:
    Energy [Low-end]= 8.651e37 J, or 20.6763 Ninatons of TNT
    Energy [High-end]= 1.871e39 J, or 447.1797 Ninatons of TNT

    And like before, each individual guardian gets 1/50 of that so 413.526 Yotatons for the low end and 8.943 Ninatons for the high end.

    Though Lanancuras prime gets the whole thing as it took all the guardians to beat him.

    anything wrong with this method? :catthinks
  14. Probably the best destructive feat from Shinzo, and I'm gonna try and calc it.

    To cut a long story short, during the final battle between the FV (Lanancuras) and the protagonist (Mushra), Lanacuras informs Mushra that through some bullshit cosmic chain reaction, a piece of the sun has broken off into a trajectory heading to Earth (or as it's called in the show Enterra).

    The whole thing is shown to Mushra in real time through Lanancuras' stomach TV (Don't ask.)


    The Dub version adds a short scene of the guardians stating they'd "send help for Mushra", and they are presumably responsible for restoring his power with that giant rainbow thing. This scene does not exist in the original version, and since I don't know Japanese I can't tell if that's also the case or if it was all Mushra.
    My best guess is that the guardians also did this in the original cut, but the Dub added that scene to clear up the ambiguity.
    For this reason I'll divide the final output in the calc between the guardians. It shouldn't matter scaling-vise because both Mushra and Lanancuras are Celestial Guardians themselves so they get the result for their dc anyway.

    Calc time:

    I'm going off the assumption that, to destroy the Solar Fragment and prevent anything from hitting earth it requires at least as much energy as the fragment's kinetic energy.
    So this is what I'm calcing here.

    Mercury's Diameter = 4879.4 km = 90 px
    1 px = 4879.4/90= 54.2155 km

    Solar Fragment Diameter = 11 px = 11*54.2155= 596.3711 km
    Solar Fragment Radius = 298185.55 m

    Volume of SF= 4/3*pie*(298185.55)^3= 1.11057e17 m^3
    Density of the outer layer of the sun is = 0.0000002 gr/cc = 0.0002kg/m^3

    m=V*density=1.11057e17*0.0002=22211400000000 kg

    As noted above the SF starts moving at 8:03 and nearly reaches earth before being destroyed at 19:59.
    So the timeframe is 11 minutes and 56 seconds = 716 sec
    The distance is 1 AU (149597870700m)

    v=d/t= 149597870700/716 = 208935573.6033 m/s = 0.6969c

    Using relativistic Ke calculator
    I get Ke = 7.867e29 J, or 188.026 Exatons of tnt

    Scaling makes no sense, but I guess that's anime for you.

    Going by the feats shown, this Fragment smashed Venus apart by going through it and was going to destroy earth.
    So for the sake of low-balling we can say it has at least enough kinetic energy required to destroy Venus.

    GBE of Venus:
    U= 3*G*M^2/ (5*R) = 3*6.674*10^-11*(4.8675e24)^2/(5*6051800)=
    = 1.5677e32 J, or 37.469 Zettatons of tnt

    That is the sum total, but how about every individual Guardian's power?

    Well, in ep.31 during a flashback there is a shot of the Guardians fighting Lanancuras:

    We can see 50 guardians in total (including Mushra)

    Therefore an individual value would be = 1.5677e32/50= 3.1354e30 J, or 749.382 Exatons of tnt

    Final Tally:
  15. A simple enough calc, and I was bored.
    And yeah, I know the movie sucks, but mags is far from being the reason.


    "Charles always wanted to build bridges"


    I'm going to calc kinetic energy required to move the bridge like that.

    According to google maps the distance is about 4500m from the bridge to the point seen in the video.

    Magneto starts moving the bridge towards the island on 0:40 and it comes to a standstill at 1:20, so the time frame is 40 seconds.

    v=d/t= 4500/40 = 112.5 m/s

    Mass of the golden gate bridge = 380,800,000 kg
    according to this: http://goldengatebridge.org/research/factsGGBDesign.php
    (I used the updated mass excluding anchorages as magneto only ripped out the bridge itself)

    Ke= 1/2*m*v^2= 1/2*380800000*(112.5)^2 = 2409750000000 J or 575.944 tons of TNT

    Final Tally:
