Awesome, though this isn't necessarily a weather calc lol, as all the weather stuff was calculated by KaiserWombat, and got accepted, years ago, just leaving me with having to use the weight of the cloud he calculated, and the length of the town in question.
So, I know that we have a rule against attack point scaling in Yu-Gi-Oh, but considering that monsters in ARC-V are real beings that can destroy real life objects, wouldn't it make sense for monsters with equal or greater attack to scale to those that are weaker?
i dont think so, for the most part, despite being solid vision they cannot destroy non construct material with the exception of combat in other dimensions if i remember correctly. perhaps you should look for scans regaridng the mechanics of solid vision before any of us say anything?
Were you? I legitimately couldn't tell. Sorry about that. Though iirc, Sora was harmed by solid vision pillars, and a major part of the excitement about action duels was that it was much more dangerous. I thinj there are more examples, but I'll have to find scans.
basically to prevent anyone from getting into true danger, the real solid vision doesnt excrete the full power of monsters or "damage" unless it is meant to actually cause destruction and kill people.
for example, when the smaller kids fought early in arc v the field specificaly altered itself to be bouncy and basically really soft. or when sora dueled, a building crashed on him but he was able to get out without being hurt
How are you feeling about it? Ridley looks pretty cool, both his appearance and moveset. Samus got mid air charging finally after damn near 20 years, but that's it. Her moveset is still the exact same as it was from Smash 4, so that's disappointing. No Samus Returns costume either that we know of. However, every Smash character is back and more so I can understand leaving that the same. I'm really looking forward to Smash Ultimate because of Ridley since it's the first time he's playable in any form.
Something I noticed is that in the E3 demo, Samus doesn't have her Dark Samus colors anymore, it's been replaced by the Phazon Suit colors (which looks awesome): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Mt53edFk4Q&t=418s. Start the video at 0:32 for Samus. I also haven't seen Dark Samus as an Assist Trophy, could that mean anything? I usually don't speculate anything, but that's half the fun with Smash.
Hell yeah, about time Ridley appeared in Smash as a playable character. Also love Zero Suit Samus's design. Also wonder what they're going to do with Dark Samus, but admittedly I get kind of tired of having too many clones.
True, since Dark Samus could use duplication or radiation attacks; albeit, she'd still be drastically nerfed like every other character in the game. Then again, Ganondorf still has his moveset copied from Captain Falcon, despite the fact that he could easily have his own moveset.
hmmm i see. well thats a shame, personally ocarina of time ganondorf is my favorite incarnation, but for now hes basically a cap falcon clone who decided to become a swordsman.
@cal ive noticed youre listed as an expert in metroid, and dont take this the wrong eay, but are you sure you should be there on the list? last time we talked youve only played like 3 metroid games, didnt you?
Agreed, I personally think Ganondorf never should have been cloned, and especially should have been changed in Brawl. He's rated as the worst character in Brawl for a reason. Also, I noticed that Cal's name was on the list, and that's despite him saying later on in another thread that he's actually not too familiar with Metroid.
Ganondorf in Melee had the Spaceworld appearance and 2.5 unique moves: Neutral attack, Forward air and Up tilt [ish].
In Brawl he gained the TP appearance and 8 unique moves: Forward tilt, Down tilt, Down Smash, Up Smash, Neutral B, Side B, Up Throw, Down air and Up B [ish], and other animations such as grab, ledge attack and running.
In 4 he gained nothing interesting sans for the 4 custom moves, which made his B [Sword], Up and Down B more unique from Falcon.
Now in Ultimate he gained the true Oot appearance and 2 new moves: A somewhat unique sword based Forward smash while the Up [Ike] and Down [Cloud] animations were taken from other characters, along with a better running animation and Forward throw, but they might gave him new animations during development.
In conclusion: Ganondorf started in Melee has mostly a Falcon clone, gained most new moves [even if they mostly don't fit him] in Brawl, got very little in 4 and got sword based attacks since the demand of him using the sword [fitting more for his TP counterpart] in Ultimate, but the true Oot Ganondorf is the mage one.
Note: Jiglypuuf was 100% decloned from Kirby in Melee while Luigi and Falco were further decloned over the years, lastly Wolf [only dash attack], Roy, Dr. Mario, Young Link and Pichu were further decloned in Ultimate and now [especially Luigi] are more unique.
Luigi has been rather unique since Melee; Green Missile says it all. And well, clones have always had some differences, such as difference in speed and power. Though, Marth and Lucina were probably the 2 closest characters to being almost identical clones. But, Marth's Falchion having a tip is what made the difference in Smash 4. Plus, physical stats were slightly different but barely noticeable. But Captain Falcon Vs Ganondorf, Ganon was basically a lot slower and not that much stronger.
If Dark Samus is indeed a fighter in Ultimate, I guarantee she'd be an Echo Fighter even though Dark Samus could easily have her own unique moveset with all the stuff she can do. Just look at how jank the Dark Samus Assist Trophy is in Smash 4, it's like they didn't even try. If Dark Samus is a fighter, Metroid will get two new playable characters which already seems impossible. Then again, someone in Smash seems to like Metroid since Metroid stuff is usually the first thing to appear in Smash trailers ever since Smash 4. During the trailer that showed that every Smash character from the past will be in Ultimate, Mario was up first for obvious reasons. Who was the second character to appear? Samus. She showed up before Kirby or Link. In the Smash 4 reveal trailer, the first three franchises to show up were Mario, then Zelda, then Metroid. Samus was the fourth character to be added to Smash, before Sakurai's character Kirby. In Subspace Emissary, Samus' group is basically the only group that does something of value. Someone seems to really like Metroid to some extent, so maybe we will get more than Ridley, I hope so.
Stuff like GX was put in the back because it was getting in the way of the main discussion. stuff like yugis durability and stamina in later tabs is wanked. this guy... honestly i have to ban him at this point, hes been warned on his behavior in all of the yugioh threads, a thanos thread, a few madoka vs threads, derailed a smash bros thread, and ha sgone too far at this point.
ill like him to explain why he did this on the thread.
im also going to say that im removing my compromise. reflecting on the info it is clear i was way too leninent with the quite frankly, circular and shody evidence that usually was headcanon or clearly not true (the cards being stronger than their actual physical forms for example)
Sending someone back in time is a low 2-C feat now, he thinks?
Jaden/Juudai does claim it's "a special time space" for him & Yugi when he notices time is stopped, but I'm not sure time travel+stopping time is low 2-C. Plus, it isn't really a new timeline when we know:
1. Time is stopped, hence the lack of activity, not because there's no people. Yugi even says goodbye to his (admittedly) off-screen grandpa as he's leaving. What, is Yugi delusional in this timeline, too?
2. At 2:40 we can see a paper showing Yugi having won Battle City & all 3 Egyptian Gods. (Also, great Joey & Tristan faces.) This takes place right after Battle City, clearly.
It is possible the timeline differs slightly, since Kuriboh appeared in a dream "last night", before Jaden arrived, to tell Yugi a duelist would arrive to tell him.
So I wouldn't say it's very strong evidence for timeline creation, either.
Not objectively. The only proof to time being stopped I saw was when they went to the square to duel.
Yugi noticed there was no one on the streets today, & the clock showed 9, right on the hour. Jaden, seeing that, concluded time had stopped & this was a special time space for him & Yugi.
Neither video shows the full duel, so I can't verify if the clock shows signs of a lack of time advancement later on.
EDIT: Checking the video I linked below, the clock isn't visible there either; Most of the duel is in the rainbow void of Neo Space that Jaden plays after summoning Magna Neos. (Slifer still descends from the clouds, though, lol.)
If that was a freshly created timeline, it's small & ended "prematurely", because we see at the video that as Neos attacks Slifer, Jaden is returned to the present, & we can tell time is flowing because CAW. Er, I mean, because a bird cries & flies overhead; It couldn't do that if time was stopped.
A timeline containing only Domino City & that, although timeless, concludes after a set point?
It at least does SEEM to be time travel. An illusion would be more typical of a Millennium Item's powers, but we see that when Jaden gets transported, Winged Kuriboh, which had flown to aside Yugi's shoulder, disappears. It could be inferred WK went back into its card, as it's the spirit of it, since WK, as a part of Jaden's deck, would end up time traveling with him.
It may also be of note that Yugi set up Jaden's travelling to this duel so he could "regain something he had lost".
Indeed. It is possible time became stopped at a certain point; Yugi won Battle City according to the paper in that timeline, & he apparently had a dream, so day had to become night which had to become day for that to happen, unless alt-timeline-Yugi is lying for some absurd reason & Jaden found a fake paper or such. Absurd.
And there's also the matter of him saying bye to his grandpa; Solomon/Sugoroku is off-screen & never speaks, so we can't affirm if he was timestopped, existant, nor if Yugi was aware of the state (or lack thereof) of his grandpa.
Yes. Also, being realistic, time couldn't have been stopped when Jaden arrived, because the paper he finds gets blown onto his leg -& the paper collides off-screen, but we do hear it land- by the WIND, which is also shown to blow his hair. There isn't wind when time is stopped.
Being technical, Jaden's exact words -or at least, the sub's translation of what he says- are: "Time has stopped.""I get it!" & "This is a special time space for me and Yugi-san!"
Original Japanese sounds like: "Toki ga sundenai. Souka! Koko wa, ore to Yuugi-san to no tokobetsuna kuukan!"
If anyone wants to translate that romaji I typed up, to see if there's anything affirming he's speaking in the affirmative or if there's any missed nuances....
But yeah. Other than it being common for the audience to be expected to take the word of what characters say as fact -& Yugi's observations of no one being on the streets today, at 9 AM, seemingly.- there isn't any confirmation time DID stop.
It could be assumed to, but that's all. Plus, Yugi making illusions wouldn't be out of the realm of plausibility for a Millennium Item. Transporting someone, though....
Ah yes. Technically, WK does lead Jaden to Yugi, but it's Yugi's cards on display that seem to glow along with Jaden's WK card when he gets transported. Although, the glow is absent around from Yugi's card 2:19.
So it is possible that Winged Kuriboh did this as some kind of Duel Spirit thing. There is Yugi's dialogue. "I gave you a card three years ago to test whether or not you'd become a worthy enough duelist to possess it."
Come to think of it, Yugi doesn't even have his Millennium Puzzle in the place WK leads Jaden to. And with the dialogue:
"That card will guide you to the strongest of all Duelists!" "Strongest Duelist? One besides you?"
It suggests that WK did NOT lead Jaden to the King of Games, whom he duels (Along with Yugi Muto, yes), but Yugi Muto.
So with the absence of the MP, WK's card being the one glowing.... This really does seem like it was WK's doing. XD I mean, sure, Yugi gave it to Jaden, as a test, knowing its power... but WK's spirit & power are still known to be tied to the card, not the duelist.
It was stated by Sakurai that the characters in Smash aren't the actual characters, just trophies of them borught to life. That would mean that the Samus in Smash Bros is an entirely diferent character (judging by the fact that Power Suit Samus is consistently one of the worst characters in Smash somehow and that Samus can't use 95% of her stuff in Smash, it's probably Samus' weakest incarnation). Shouldn't there be a profile of/key for Smash Samus somewhere?
The Smash Bros verse page connects to the real characters themselves even though all of the player characters in Smash aren't the "real" characters if what Sakurai said is to be taken at face value. If someone made a Smash version of a player character like Samus, there'd probably have to be a page made for all of them or else people will get confused since a lot of people don't read. That and making 50+ character pages solely for their Smash Bros incarnation would be pretty time consuming.
