    Austin, Luigi’s crippling fear of LITERALLY EVERYTHING is because he got a concussion from hitting the block with his head. Mario forces him to keep hitting brick blocks like this anyways, merely for Mario’s amusement.
    Mario is the most professional person in being abusive in video game history.

    ... Austin... uhm, did you get permission to blow up that much explosive material in the middle of a suburb?
    there's got to be some kind of bylaws or something like that for that kind of thing i would think. i mean i know i haven't been in C'Cago for a couple of decades but i would Think Some things would still hold true...
    i really need to get back there... not to blow things up, of course. i hate loud noises... but for general reasons like, i was Born there. silly stuff like that.

  • Dunamis Empologus
    Dunamis Empologus 2 months ago

    There's something wrong with that... So you have to mess with this Mario.
    The brick blocks are made of Mushroom People, so probably the bricks are made of mushrooms.We should try to calculate the weight of a Toad, which should be lighter by size and material since it is a mushroom... Then then convert that mass to the brick blocks.
    But there is another important and more confusing factor, the magic.We should see if we can get reference to this magic, the blocks float and always stand and reuinidis in the same place and probably stay in the air regardless of the weather, even if there is a drilling near by...Then I suppose that what keeps the block flooating without to move is its own mass, and when the block breaks the magic is lost and no longer floats.I think if you take these factors into account, you might get a fairer force for Mario...
    Even because this dwarf is not invincible though powerful.
    I'm trying to help, I'll think more...

  • Jon Harker
    Jon Harker 2 months ago

    Hello to Austin and the rest of the Theorists crew! Just a few tidbits from my end, to add something I consider important to this great video.
    Nobody seems to have said it thus far [which I find a tad surprising given the talk about sledgehammer form], so I'll point it out-you *never* punch with the whole fist, so that surface area figure was unfortunately rendered useless.

    Aside from being a surefire way to destroy your hand, the whole fist has so much surface area [as well as being offset from the bones of the forearm and wrist] that a punch would be *magnitudes* less effective-regardless of a hard or soft target-if thrown that way. Anyone who's had to learn what a proper punch is like can tell you that you always strike with the two big knuckles of your index and middle fingers. Unfortunately, that x-ray style clip you showed did not help anyone there, as it's also an incorrect punch with loosely-curled fingers striking first.

    This then means, however irrelevant it is to Mario's actual maximum physical capacities, that the surface area that comes into contact with the brick blocks is perhaps 10% of the given 5000 mm-if not even less, because of the curvature of each knucklebone [similar to two .45ACP wadcutter bullets, I'd think].

    On a separate note, Mario is hardly the strongest Smash fighter-Samus Aran's Varia Suit is definitely powered down for the purposes of the Tournament [Zero Laser as her Final Smash excepted], and Literal Space Dragon Ridley is physically downsized for the purposes of Smash Ultimate, for two examples. On top of that, Captain Falcon either punches and kicks so hard that he sets the very air on fire, or he's secretly capable of some manner of magic that he brings out solely for Smashing.
