Every second you hold your breath your strength doubles, but each time you breath in it resets to normal. Who is the strongest opponent you can beat?

Every second you hold your breath your strength doubles, but each time you breath in it resets to normal. Who is the strongest opponent you can beat?

To be clear, this happens every time you hold your breath. Your strength continues to increase while you exhale, but as soon as you start to inhale your next breath, your strength level drops back to baseline. Your durability increases in proportion to your strength.

Who is the strongest you can beat in a random encounter?

Who is the strongest you can beat if you are allowed to hold your breath for as long as you can, then sucker punch them?

your math is fucky, you're mixing bases of your exponentiation (which is a big deal when the bases are 2 and 10!)

If you held your breath for 85 seconds you'd be 285 times stronger, or 3.9*1025 times stronger, giving you a punch with 2.7*1027 joules.

That's certainly a powerful punch, but it's 58 orders of magnitude smaller than your estimate.

For context, the gravitational binding energy of Earth is about 2.24*1032 joules, so you would still need to be a hundred thousand times stronger to even be planet-busting.

You'd need to hold your breath for 102 seconds to destroy Earth with a single punch (2102 = 5.07*1030, *70 = 3.5*1032 joules)

In order to destroy the universe in a single punch (if I assume your number of 1085 is correct) you'd need to hold your breath for 282 seconds, or 4.7 minutes (2282 = 7.8*1084). Certainly doable, but you'd probably need some training before you could hold your breath that long.

If you can hold your breath for longer than a minute then you will have at least (your_normal_strength)260 which is terrifying and possibly universe busting.

Edit: Some estimates of the total energy of the universe if all matter was converted is around 1085 joules. An average human punch is around 70 joules. So if you could hold your breath for 85 seconds you would be hitting at 7085 joules. Which means you could destroy the universe 7 times with 1 punch.

Edit 2: my math is bad. See Willie's comment below.

Attach myself to a blood oxygenater so I don't have to breath.

Unlimited power!

Yea my math is bad cuz I'm bad at math. thanks for correcting me.

Ultra Instinct Goku vs (Hypothetical) SSJB 4 Goku

Ultra Instinct Goku vs (Hypothetical) SSJB 4 Goku

It had just occurred to me recently that in Dragonball Super a SSJB Kaioken x20 would be 2.5x as powerful as a hypothetical SSJB stage 3 (SSJ3 with blue hair) and even that was no match for Jiren the Gray however the new Ultra Instinct form is shown to be on par with him showing the form to be extremely OP, this has given me an idea for a battle and that is this....

Do you think the new "Ultra Instinct" form could defeat a hypothetical SSJB stage 4?

EDIT: Don't bother saying that SSJB 4 could stack Kaioken because the Ultra Instinct version of Goku could probably do the same and so one doesn't have any unfair advantage we will use a Hypothetical "Super" version of SSJB 4 to match the version of Ultra Instinct we say in Episode 110.

That's not the point of this topic. The topic is can SSJB 4 Goku beat Ultra Instinct Goku. Canonicity has nothing to do with this.

The SSJB 4 would be 80x as strong as SSJB. Also, since SSJ 4 doesn't place much if any stress on the body, Goku would likely be able to use Kaio-Ken with the B version of it. There is no way that UI will win against something that is 1600x as strong as SSJB. And to top it all of, the ending of Z, which takes place after Super, has Goku strong enough to fight a Kid Buu level opponent in his base form. In Super's canon, this is bcause of the God power. In GT's canon, this is because Goku is simply that much stronger after the time skip. So this means he is approximately 400x as strong overall. So SSJB 4 Kaio-Kenx20 Goku would be ~640,000x SSJB Goku. If there was any doubt who is winning this fight, I'm pretty sure it's gone now. But if you don't want to give Goku the Kaio-Ken, he would still be ~32,000x SSJB Goku, so I'm pretty sure he still beats UI Goku.

GT isn't even canon anyway

Nobody cares if it is canon or not, its not like any part of the show is actually real.

That kind of "math" doesn't make sense in the DB universe. It would canonically be paradoxal. Which means it can be whatever you want

Who is the weakest character that can beat Batman ?

Who is the weakest character that can beat Batman ?

At being one hell of a dad

At being a dad? Setting the bar pretty fucking low aren't you?

I'd say weakest is a man in a coma who leaves a heartfelt letter and car to his son/daughter before dying.

He nearly gets Gohan killed in the cell games then misses the next few years of his kids lives being dead.

Makes Goku look like a good father.

Um this isn't much of a challenge. He sends his "sons" into crazy combat situations.

I would even argue Batman's villain Ra's Al Ghul is a better father. And he isn't a good father.

Captain America and Black Panther [MCU] vs Wolverine and Deadpool [Fox]

Captain America and Black Panther [MCU] vs Wolverine and Deadpool [Fox]

Cap and Black Panther have standart equipment from "Civil War".

Wolverine and Deadpool have standart equipment from "Logan" and "Deadpool".

Location - airport.

R1. In-character.

R2. Bloodlusted.

Regeneration is OP, but Cap and BP are much stronger, faster, more skilled and have vibranium shield, suit and claws. I think they take it 6/10.

ITT: People massively underselling MCU Cap and Panther. MCU Panther no-sold a Gatling gun and outran a car. Cap has blocked Thor's hammer, punched Iron Man's armor apart, and taken down a half-dozen targets with a single shield throw.

Team Fox is so fucked that it's not even a fight. They'd lose both rounds 2v1 against either opponent, much less both of them. Wolverine and Deadpool primarily fight normal humans with normal guns, and they sometimes struggle with that. That's not even a real obstacle for MCU characters, that's just fodder for them to look cool beating up. There's nothing that they bring to the table that can even hurt Black Panther through his suit. We don't have a lot of feats for Cap's suit against normal bullets, but we did see him take a shot from the Chutauri with only minor injury. The Chitauri were able to make the Hulk bleed with those guns, and he's completely unaffected by normal firearms. I have doubts that they can hurt Cap even if they can hit him.

Regen or not, Team Fox is not immune to concussive force. They've both been knocked out by things that knock out normal humans. Either member of Team MCU is more than strong enough to take them out with a single blow, and more than fast enough to land that blow. Even if the fight is to the death, once Team Fox is incapacitated they can't protect themselves, and their opponents can easily incapacitate them. Team MCU 11/10.

the shit he does in his movie is rather insane

If this Wolverine is from "Logan" like the title implies, then the MCU team should win easily. Logan's healing isn't what it used to be and i can him being out down, if not killed. Deadpool can't really do anything against BP, so as soon as he's incapacitated then the MCU team wins.

An ordinary man vs an exact clone of that same ordinary man, but the clone is wearing a Tapout shirt.

An ordinary man vs an exact clone of that same ordinary man, but the clone is wearing a Tapout shirt.The ordinary man: Steve Smith. Steve is a 31 year old HR worker from Pennsylvania who hates it when you confuse him with the NFL player of the same name. His hobbies include going to the gym once per month in half-hearted attempts to drop from an overweight BMI to a healthy weight BMI and attempting DIY projects before giving up and hiring someone to clean up his shoddy work. He was married briefly in his mid 20's, but she divorced him and his attempts at online dating since then have been lackluster at best. He lives in a suburban area, drives a Honda Civic, wears loose fit jeans and plain monochromatic T-shirts casually, and has little to no fighting experience. He's watched a few MMA highlight clips on YouTube though, and that one encounter in 7th grade when he came in from the side and shoved a kid down was pretty tough.

The clone: The same memories, personality, emotions, and build of Steve... but the clone has a super sick Tapout shirt on.



Scenario 1: Deathmatch. No weapons. Set in a neutral environment without advantage given to either party. Simple yet effective.

Scenario 2: Same rules as scenario 1, but now they have an unlimited supply of pool noodles and Bud Light.

Dumbledore is given the complete Harry Potter series on Harry's first day at Hogwarts. What is he able to achieve with his newly gained knowledge?

Dumbledore is given the complete Harry Potter series on Harry's first day at Hogwarts. What is he able to achieve with his newly gained knowledge?

His main goals (in a best case scenario):

Voldemort is killed

Harry survives

Sirius's name is cleared and Pettigrew is charged/imprisoned

Barty Crouch Jr. is recaptured

Quirrell, Lockhart and Umbridge get whatever comeuppance is appropriate for them

No casualties (i.e. Cedric lives, Sirius lives, Dumbledore himself lives)

The way it works:

The story will progress as it originally does for as long as Dumbledore refrains from directly altering it. For instance, he could try to apprehend Voldemort/Quirrell on the first night if he wanted to, but this would massively change how the story would pan out. Alternatively (for example), he could go straight to the Room of Requirement and retrieve the Diadem horcrux (and destroy it), with this change not having a real effect for years to come.

For me, the major problem surrounds the part of Voldemort's soul that's in Harry. For Harry to survive the destruction of this, his blood would still need to be used in Voldemort's regeneration, which would likely mean a dead Cedric.

Can Dumbledore overcome this? What's the best outcome he could achieve for the wizarding world?

Simple. Ask Ron Weasley to please come to his office with his rat, as he has reason to believe it has magical properties. Cast the spell to force an Animagus to return to normal on the rat, revealing Peter Pettigrew. Have him sent to Azkaban. Without Pettigrew, it's highly unlikely Voldemort would ever return, or at the very least, it would be delayed incredibly - possible even until after Harry's natural death. He could then systematically wipe out the Horcruxes while Voldemort was still in spirit form, leaving just Harry remaining. Their defences are worthless against someone who knows what they are; the only one which still poses a threat is the locket, which he wouldn't need to go after anyway, since at the time Dumbledore gains his knowledge, it's locked up in Grimmauld place.

By the time Voldemort returns, if ever, Dumbledore could simply sit an adult Harry down (after grooming him to be a reasonable human being), and explain the situation.

Alternatively, if Dumbledore is willing to break all of his morals, there's another tactic which could spare Harry's life; Dementors. By coercing Dementors the same way the Ministry does, Dumbledore could potentially get them 'on side'. When he does this, he could then reveal Pettigrew, as stated before, but instead place him under the Imperius curse, and arrange for Voldemort's resurrection; while preparing a trap for Voldemort at the resurrection site. At the moment Voldemort comes back, Dumbledore enters, duels and defeats him, and gives him to the Dementors to be kissed. After that, the Horcruxes can be destroyed as normal, in case the soul fragments inside them pose any threat.

Batman in the bat-cave. Stark in his tower. Peter Parker in his room. Thor in Asgard. Who can grow the *dankest* weed?

Batman in the bat-cave. Stark in his tower. Peter Parker in his room. Thor in Asgard. Who can grow the *dankest* weed?

These guys could all get something chronic, but I'm talking dank.

They each get one year

They get any equipment they can afford/acquire/conjure.

Batman gets to grow it in the Bat-Cave.

Thor gets a fertile field in Asgard

Stark gets a greenhouse room in Stark Tower.

Peter Parker has to hide it in his room or in the attic.

R1: Indica, most dank sample wins

R2: Same as R1 but Sativa

R3: Instead of quality, let's talk quantity, using either/any type. To make it fair, they each MAGICALLY get an infinitely large field.

Bonus: Poison Ivy vs Swamp Thing.

Edit: Clarification, they have to grow the weed themselves, they can't hire someone else. Friend(s) can help test it with them though.

You want Batman, Peter Parker, and Tony Stark to compete with weed grown in a place that is analogous to heaven? That would be literally the weed of the gods, fortified by magicks and watered by Thor, God of Thunder.

Ant man VS the Flash in a game of hide-and-seek.

Ant man VS the Flash in a game of hide-and-seek.

Antman could be hiding anywhere on earth. He can shrink down to 1 inch but isn't allowed to go subatomic. Flash and Antman spawn at random locations. Flash has 24 hours.

First off, this is a brilliant WWW.

Having no actual evidence to back this up, i'd say Ant-man wins. Even if the flash could cover the entire Earth in 24 hours, he'd have to look under every sofa, in every cabinet, ant-man could've dug himself a hole in a garden, etc. I'd say Ant-man 9/10, Flash would have to get lucky.
