We've talked a LOT about Super Smash Bros over the years but one thing I've always wanted to touch one was Captain Falcon. You know, the guy with the fire punch. It is a killer move and I've always been curious about it. More so, I've wanted to know if you would REALLY punch so hard that you light your fist on fire. How would that WORK? Well Loyal Theorists, today we find out!

Air is a fluid. A fluid is not exclusive to liquid. A fluid is anything that can change its shape to the shape of its environment. If I put a cup of water in a box it will collect at the bottom. If I put that same water in a bowl it will change to the shape of the bottom of the bowl. The same thing with air and all gases. If I put helium in a balloon it will expand to the shape of the balloon. The same thing with air, carbon dioxide, smoke, steam, etc. So yes gasses are fluid, thus air is a fluid. :) Thank for coming to science with Carson. Hope this clears that up for you!

We could just accept that he has fire powers and not try to make a game fit into our understanding of real world physics... But where's the fun (and money) in that?! 😅

Nintendo clearly made Smash Ultimate with MatPat in mind. They decided he was too good at digging out secrets and gave up trying to hide them anymore.

I found out that Limb Obliterator has a pressure that’s more than a fifth of that of Jupiter’s core. And it makes the Falcon Punch look weak.

Dude why even mention his god belt if it has nothing to do with the theory. If your worried about falcon fans coming after you just throw in a line of "and we checked he isn't wearing his god belt in smash." This is what matpat does in almost every video and its so annoying, its only purpose is to pad time and its so annoying. I can understand the set up and why he wrote everything else, but why even do a full two-three minute rant about the god belt when its not even important
