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!

7:00 Your editor misheard you

Dude why even mention his god belt if it has nothing to do with the theory. If your worried about falcon fans coming after you just throw in a line of "and we checked he isn't wearing his god belt in smash." This is what matpat does in almost every video and its so annoying, its only purpose is to pad time and its so annoying. I can understand the set up and why he wrote everything else, but why even do a full two-three minute rant about the god belt when its not even important

I wish you took a page out of Austin's book and calculate the air density or any other variable that could make a Falcon Punch feasible.

How is that correct FALCON PAAAAAWNCH

Oh boy, i do love me some overanalyzing physics in a videogame

Make the final channel fantasy theory

MatPat trying to pronounce SZA is killing me lol

Crossing all the I and doting ALL THE T

your math is off

Do a theory on Fortune Street! What's that? A board game style Nintendo game with their best characters. MARIO IS THE WEALTHIEST BUISNESS OWNER IN THE MUSHROOM KINGDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will Falcon punched a furry

0:53 Love this moment

Finally he used the intro.

captain falcon would make sans into ghost rider xd

Who says that captain Falcon moves in a straight line in those three frames? Maybe he moves back and forth within those frames?

When BTS shows up on the list of music that scrolled by on his sponsorship spot 😏

matt dad dadbod

it hits different. Yes trash taste would be happy to hear that.

Only one man is capable of that punch.

Had anyone seen "My Date With Captain Falcon"??

FALCON PUNNNNNNNNNNCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Great, now you have the framework to find out one punch man's power.

“Not a cloud in the sky” Me: looks around the screen and finds that there are about about 6 clouds and proceeds to make a Film Theory episode on that.

I thought sonic made the yes she sound I got to get to antics of retro games

Thanos: I can destroy percentages of a world by snapping a finger Links awakening link: I can destroy a island just by waking up Captain falcon: I can destroy galaxies just by thinking about it.

What is if child frame fang is ennard

Do a theory on the Donkey kong power up punch

What does this mean for kirby?

how captain falcon makes the falcon punch: did anybody else pay close attention on how he first puts his right hand next to his left hand and rubs it against his left hand. that is how he creates the fire. if u did'nt pay close attention, watch the part where matpat shows u the frames and at the beggening of frame 1, u can see him rubbing his right hand against his left like a match, so that is what creattes the dang fire

The intro was good

First

best theme song ever i spend looking for the video just for the song.

Hahae so good

WELL ACTUALLY THERE ARE THE ORIGINAL 12 FIGHTERS!

FALCON PUNCH!!!!!!!!!!!!

At this point I just watch game theory to watch matpat talk about physics for 20 min

The intro was weird

I would let falcon fist me 🤪🤪🤪

Let's not forget Kirby's version. FA-CO PAAASH!

Lockstin actually made a similar video a few years ago, it's really interesting just how different the conclusions were

But what if he has a flame thrower hidden in his gloves? (I love the Smash bros content plz make more of it.)

Good to know the whole belt thing was useless and wasted 2 minutes of time to tell me nothing

I dunno if i'm dumb but isn't 3/0,05 60 not 16

What if his gloves aren't leather, but something with a higher friction or lower ignition point?

Disappointed he didn't cover warlock punch.

Wait, didn't the F-Zero GX ending reveal that the whole "belt powers" thingy was a lie?

Captain Falcon won't you come with me

Hey everyone don’t buy reycon buy $30 skull candy jib there $30 they have 6 hour battery life an the case has 16 fo a total of 22 hours and if they brake you can sign up for there 2 year warnity so google skullcandy.com and buy you some cheep quality earbuds today. Btw I personally love them they perfectly fit in ears and I’m not even being paid they are so good and you should buy them today.

I love your intro so much

Alright everyone, say it with me now... "Falcon...

Im in 8th grade and all of this math is like my classes

I was watching this on the bus and 4 first graders were looking at me so I falcon paaaaaaawnched them all

Lockstin & Gnoggin made a video on this many years ago.

"He doesn't strike fast enough but if he did it would be this speed". That's it? Also 3 meters in 0.05 seconds is 60m/s, not 16. I feel like Game Theory has become pretty lazy over the years, both in their topics and in the amount of errors in them. Seriously, if you rerun simple, basic calculations yourself you can find mistakes in almost every episode.

I'm jealous!!!!!!!! i want to be serenaded by Matt's beautiful Tenor voice. also that is really funny how Ollie grabs your headphones and throws it across the room. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 my little sister just yells at me to shut up

The intro is hilarious since i just got stunned by someone who flew by me and said "falcon punch" in echo arena

Matpat... what if he has pyrokinesis? Or at least pyrotechnics in his suit...

7:06 there is a typo It should have been 60 m/s But it is shown as 16m/s

3/0.05 = 60 m/s 60 m/s = 134.22 mph Seems like there was some math lost in translation but once you got back to imperial units it cleaned up.

steve in smash now, so that means you can figure out every smash characters actual height because of each block is a meter long, wide, and tall.

What I thought is, oh a new video time to put my nerd glasses.

Nah mate captain falcon..is using Fire breathing...

Who here has seen this in "Because Science?" no? Just me?

Cap with magic belt is God level!? What

When u try to be captain falcon and u pick falco

What would happen is captain falcon was in space and headed towards earth if he did his falcon punch wail he is heading towards would his fist be fiery ×10 would the earth be destroyed tell me mat tell me.

Falcon punch that's correct FALCON PAAAAAWNCH that's incorrect saying paaaaawnch is wrong memes mess with your head but stickmin pawnch is good in henry stickmin games

I didn’t think I could learn this much about air

Falcon punch is actually captain falcon’s worst move.

I expected to see someone spell falcon paaawnch and I got what I expected, the rest of the video was also fun

“I’ve been listening to a lot of new music” Me: sees wap :3 “OOhh REALLY??”

I noticed the colors on the theory "simon says" disc, and the two greens really irritated me something fierce, WE NEED CONSPIRACY THEORY

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

now this is a really game theory

Then can’t flash be like a fire spreader bruh he so fast he can travel through dimensions and literal time

"Crossing all the I's and dotting all the T's" 4:36

ORR he is like any other cool character and has powers?

2.8* the speed of sound? so lighting your fist on fire is just childs play for sonic xD

That advertisement screamed dad energy. You’ve finally made it, Matpat

WAP WAS IN THIS VIDEO!!!!!

Ltsemkeatehrorybaotuurslef

So does this apply to Ken Master from Street Fighters or Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, which are both in Smash?

cap falcon: im the flash baby i hide my power

Even tho Falcon punch can destroy a house, it only does 30 damage in smash.

So captain falcon is a human mantis shrimp

i think its funny how im lying to myself thinking i understand this i think?

But wait, Matpat, didn't you already make a video about this a long time ago?

GB

You would need to slap a chicken at around 3325 mph to cook it.

That opening was well done. Thanks for the laugh

This explains perfectly how Captain Falcon was able to beat Johny Cage in DeathBattle. Wait, what?

He was using pyrotechnics

0:53 What's wrong with it?

how fast do captain falcon need to punch a frozen chicken to be cooked... -clu 2019

Do ganon warlock punch!

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?

bruh its billie iris

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.

huh. i just thought h had like pyrokinetic gloves and boots or something.
