About Cinder vs Walpurgi thread....Kal said that it was a stomp in Cinder favor when I'm using Mami. Cinder quite big AP advantage and Mami horrible dura (which I honestly forgot back then due how exciting I was) is the reason why I change the opponent in the middle of thread (which is actually not true since we have just reaches the beginning...it was less than 20 replies as I recall).
It is your decision to close the thread, and I respect that, I won't ask you to reopen the thread. But I just want to point out that I'm not Biasr anything. I likes both series, it is the reason why I make them fight in the first place anyway.
Sorry if this offends you in any way, yeah, I just wish to point out my point of view about the thread.
But I kinda feel like making a celebratory meet-up on chat for how long its been. Everyone is welcome but I feel like who definitely need to be there is Kowt, Aizen, Blue, you, and other members who made chat boom originally.
Certain incarnations of Samus are pretty damn powerful considering her "archetype" if you could call it that. Going off of the Keys on the site, some are able to take on certain incarnations of Superman like from Young Justice where everyone gets nerfed. However, Superman (using him as an example considering how popular and durable he is) gets tickled, if that, by missiles and bombs that seem more powerful that what Samus' weaponry shows if Samus' bombs and missiles are comparable to modern military weapons. For example, Samus' Power Bombs are comparable at least to modern day nukes, but Sueprman can get knocked through a Star and be lightly singed at the most. Samus' Plasma/Wave/Ice/Spazer Beam combo seems to be the one weapon that can hurt anything when charged yet it has never been treated as Samus' most powerful weapon. It just seems weird that Samus can be a Star level opponent, yet her most powerful weapon is a "short ranged" nuke, which doesn't seem nearly as power as a Star would be. I hope I got across exactly what I'm asking and why. Any idea as to what Samus' Bomb and Missile strength is and why?
Ah that's just game mechanics, for example things like S & J and Samus Returns show that the Power Bomb is actually Planetary in terms of range (S & J) and power planet level characters (Diggernaut, which we should make a page for.)
Likewise for the ordinary bomb, which is capable of blowing Kraid's foot clean off in the manga in a massive explosion (At least compared to Kraid) and the missile capable of blowing up a volcano (I believe) in S&J.
I wasn't talking exclusively gameoplay, in cutscenes too. The only thing I can think of, other than Chozo magic, would be they're future space missiles that have much more power than modern missiles, but are able to have less collateral damage. In Metroid they can turn cordite, something that exists in real life, into one of the hardest metals ever, so having better explosive chemicals for missiles doesn't sound too far fetched.
Superman: Normal missiles don't even tickle yet that Missile actually made me bleed. How did you do that?!
Samus: A wizard did it. Fuck you, that's how.
In a way I'd like some sort of Metroid/DC comic or crossover just to give Samus' stats an absurd boost.
Samus' suit is sort of magic isn't it? It seems like it's Chozo mysticism/sorcery mixed with their technology, the thing the Chozo told the Bryyonians to do and then they nuked themselves when they didn't.

Its probably biotech, bio manip, and magic. Them space birds like their magic and tech
I knew about the vulnerability to magic, although he can still take magic lighting to the face.
Going off of the scan log picture of an Ultra Energy unit from Prime 1, there seems to be some sort of power source or reactor or something in Samus' chest/torso. I've known that the Power Suit has been some sort of biotech that is part of Samus' body (it's exact connection to the Zero Suit is still unknown), but the Ultra Energy scan leads me to believe that perhaps the suit's power source is Samus' soul?
That's probably the one thing that hasn't been retconned... yet.
Did you ever see that video on Gnoggin about how the Morph Ball works? You know, the video everyone wanted Game Theory to do yet Mat Pat spent the whole episode saying how the Morph Ball is a bad power up and we should feel bad for liking it? The Gnoggin video said that the generators in the shoulders was the one thing that couldn't be shrunk or compacted in any way and had to be left as is, yet the Chozo found a way. To me it isn't a matter of "it's physically impossible to do the thing" when the Chozo clearly did the thing.
