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!

wait, what just happened there at 6:51, mat? Didnt you talk about how easy this game made to calculate this? Help me if i am being stupid but how do you show 3 meters over 0.05 seconds, then show a calculator with 3 over 0.5 seconds and THEN get a result of 16 as opposed to either 6 or 60 m/s? what am i missing here? ok never mind since you based the rest of the equation on 60, when i look at the mph count, and different systems mean confusion, but yeah, major typo, bro, if someone else animates for you and just misheard you saying 60 for 16, then throw a plushy at them for me :P

how does Captain Falcon survive the force of his own punch (much less the fire he ignites with his gloves)? In fact, if his glove is ignited, how does it survive?

Hey Mr. GameTheory. Have you looked at the trailer for Lucina & Robin called "Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U by Book, Blade, and Crest of Flame" The video is used the Fire Emblem game style, and when Captain Falcon's fist starts to flame up is when he pulls it back and his fist has a flame burst effect before his hand follows in for the Punch, and most of the video should be in real time. The video was released 6 years ago.

You calculated velocity but not potential acceleration at the final frame? That final frame could change everything. He could easily have accelerated his fist massively at the final point that isn't rendered due to frame limitations But that is just me being nitpicky

Hate to be "that guy" but 3 m/.05 sec = 60 m/sec NOT 16. I think Matpat even says "Sixty" but whoever put the video together accidentally wrote 16 m/s @7:00. Whoops! Also the calculator a few frames earlier @6:58 shows 3/0.5, instead of 3/0.05 (which still doesn't equal 16 m/s). I think all of the rest of that math is correct though!
