It's been a while since I talked about Legend of Zelda, and since Nintendo released a teaser trailer for Breath of The Wild 2, I figured it was about time we revisited the franchise. I've talked a LOT about this world, its timelines, and pretty much every version of Link there is - so what's left? Well Theorists, today we are doing some heavy lifting and figuring out just how strong our hero Link REALLY is!

  • You forgot to measure gravity. How the walls rub against the blocks. I mean dude. Seriously. Would you be able to move it fast while there are walls keeping it from going fast? Or even how much effort he needs. Minecraft doesn't have its gravity. You can literally build a wall in the sky without anything holding it there.

      The Silent ShadowThe Silent Shadow14 ngày trước
  • I mean this makes a lot more sense than people’ll give it credit for- remember Link isn’t a human, he’s an elf... well a Hylian but same thing... We don’t know exact biology of Hylians but it’s not far fetched to say they’re magical or something like that 😁

  • Austin use glitch for infinity gold block Link can use glitch to dup his weapon/shield/bow And he can hold 999 boat load of stuff like diamond Also weapon from gerudo is gold so he can fill his inventory With gerudo shield symitar and bow and just his weapon inventory is 25 With soooo many item that can stack until 999 and that is just zelda breath of the wild Master sword is a diffreent type cause the only one that can hold its the hero only Some people say link to strong cause the master sword only link can hold and use

That means we have 28.652,616 cm3 means the cube weight 77.677,241 grams.... in other words 7.767,724 kilograms. Other question did you mean short or long tons or german tonne ?

  • Na, Steve is still stronger. A 1 cubic meter block of gold weighs 42,549 pounds. Fill Steve’s 36 slot entirely with stacks of gold blocks makes 98,032,896 pounds of weight that he then can sprint around with. In a strength matchup between link and Steve, Steve wins every time.

  • 1 ton is 1000kg, so how did he end up with 77,677kg but 85,6 ton? Do you mean that americans not only have their imperial system that makes no sense and fahrenheit that's even worse, but they also have a different ton unit? Geesh, just start using the metric system and celsius like the majority of the rest of the world...

  • Hey, Matpat! I know you'll probably never see this comment, but I have a couple of theory ideas about Half-Life: Alyx you could explore, such as: Could items like Alyx's multi-tool and Russell's Gravity Gloves exist in real life? Is it possible for a creature similar to Jeff to actually exist in the real world? How Half-Life: Alyx's ending doesn't match up with the rest of the games (G-Man's reason for replacing Gordon Freeman with Alyx Vance, Alyx's appearance in Half-Life 2 and its episodes, etc.) How could the Combine Suppression Field work? Could resin actually be used to upgrade guns in real life? Is gene-coding a possibility? How exactly does a headcrab change a person's physiology? And so many more... Please do some theories on the game, as I have a lot of questions. P.S., love your channel!

Sure tossing it around is one thing, but for it to actually shatter upon impact like we see him do inside the castle is another thing entirely.
