    Given that the mushroom kingdom's residents were TRANSFORMED and not TRANSMUTED their physical appearance should have changed but their material strengths and resistances should still be that of a toad or other organism. So with that being said, would anyone be willing to take the composite resistances of, for instance, a toad and apply them to that cubic meter to see what would happen if mario punched a brick colored organic substance?

    This is way late but if you ever decide to repeatedly swing a heavy, long handled object like a sledge hammer you want to use momentum. Instead of picking it up in front of you and largely dropping it (with some muscular help) you want to swing it backwards, standing side-on to your target. Then fully extend your arms and the handle all the way above your head, bring your back foot back forward so you’re facing your target, THEN use your muscles to assist the descent. Just watch out for the head of the tool if it’s an axe. It’s how Dad taught me to split logs.

    Mario logic: so Mario is running into big coins every level. But those coins are nothing! When Mario picks up a coin IT TURNS INTO SPARKLES! Really? He does not even have some *pick up* bar? What??? Seriously into SPARKLES and plus he exchanges them for 1-UPS without going to a store? And in every game (for example Mari galaxy/Mario galaxy 2) he goes on like a boo mushroom or cloud flower and he does not smush and squash the flower or mushroom instead he turns into a boo or some cloud and does his thing. And in the (new) super Mario bros games he picks up a STAR and...
    A. He blows up the world
    B. was correct! Now first of all. Do you really need that music and second of all why is he INVINCIBLE? I mean I get that stars are invincible but that’s like a star you draw!
    Please like my comment to get Austin to make a video about this

    But remember, these are mushrooms, not normal bricks. Based on an old Game Theory video, there's a new material that is stronger than concrete and made from fungi and has been turned into bricks. Here's the video:
    So... How much more force would it take to break these bricks based on stronger-than-concrete mushroom matter?

    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.

    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...

  • 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.
