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!

  • 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

  • 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

  • "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.

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

  • 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.
