    In Super Mario Odyssey, Mario and Cappy collect Power Moons to fuel up their airship. Power Moons are new for Mario Odyssey and they're the only real source of power we see in any of the worlds we travel to, so I had to ask... are these Power Moons actually that strong? I've decided to figure out just how powerful they actually are. Is this the biggest lie in all of Mario canon? Well I'm about to tell you!

    Now I will tell you a story: But one day there was an accident, five monsters “died” in the accident but two monsters lived Sans and Papyrus they ran for there lives the doctor was right behind them but he fell into nothing. The brothers were knocked out by the explosion and woke up without any memory except Sans pap doesn’t remember were he had come from but Sans did, Sans was determined to find his father but never found him. Until one day he found a door at waterfall he went through the door and found him he saw Doc right in front of him doc told Sans “I can’t leave this place go be with pap” Sans was not happy not happy at all. He listened to his dad and left him. I guess I should stop calling him “HIM” but after all it’s rude to talk about someone who’s listen.

    Matpat, we actually already know the amount of energy that the fusion reaction of Helium-3. In nuclear fusion using Helium-3 the reaction is: Helium-3 + Helium-3 → Helium-4 + 2 protons. This reaction have a power output of 12.86 MeV. MeV meaning mega electron volts. 1 MeV = 1.60217662 × 10^-13 joules. So 2 Helium-3 atoms give us 12.86 x 1.60217662 × 10^-13 joules. We can calculate that and see that it gives us 2.0604 x 10^-12 joules, per 2 Helium-3 atoms. We can devide that by 2 and found out how much one atom gives us. 2.0604 x 10^-12 / 2 = 1.0302 x 10^-12 joules. Well i got stuck trying to find out how much 1kg of Helium-3 can give. If someone can take from here then do it. But i found out that 1kg (2.2lb) of Helium-3 combined with 0.67kg (1.5lb) of deuterium can give us 19 megawatt-years. That just also need Deuterium, but that is just heavy water, not the hardest to get.

    Anyone else feel that this video ends abruptly? and actually feels a little sloppy? He says he´s gonna prove that it produces this much energy by determening what the moons are made of but he never does. He says they are made of helium 3 but never reach a conclusion of the video. I´m not sure what his point was. It just feels bad.

    Also it doesn´t have an intro. Scary stuff.

    Maybe the power moon's power are used to open a hole in a shield that Bowers put around a place in Mario Odyssey using Kamek's magic. This could explain why the power moon's are so weak and have no power. Maybe it is the only power sources in the Mushroom kingdom/ Mario Odyssey's world besides the power star. If that is true that could mean the power stars are very rare item ,having the power of a real star and only a few in each world. It could also be the reason why Rosalina has Mario go get them , because they have so much power

    funny thing is, when I saw the power moon reactor in the city, I did think to myself, "well efficiency of a reactor does come into play, modern nuclear reactors leave a large chunk of the energy of nuclear fuel unused, despite the immense power output it still gives, that's not it's full potential" and then MatPat said that humans may not know/understand how to properly harness the energy

    Sadly the physics is more complicated than you show. Mechanical energy isn't a lot and 4 perspective Usain Bolt would probably only use 19 kilojoules assuming he's doing a hundred yard dash in 10 seconds and has a final velocity of 10 meters per second.

    AAARRRGGHHH! This is old but mat get off the moons! Third moon related theory, 2 in the same damn game! There is so much else to theorizing on in odyssey alone and I couldn't even find many people talking about it. Is there just not enough info. Like hello! Did you go to the cloud kingdom! The ruined kingdom! Even the cap kingdom! They're boos. Or equivalents. What's that weird creature that runs around under the ground in the moon, sea and sand kingdom that you need to stomp for moons!

    Mathew Robert Patrick o-boy. I Samien Oliver a 12 year old boy who wants to you two to do 2 theories about questions I asked weirdly. 1a. What moves could a magikarp theoretically do. 1b. What are the moves and what do they do. 1c. Pros and con's of moves. 1d. Pokemon anatomy. 2a. How huge is hyrule from game to game? 2b. What is the weather of hyrule using all known info and the help of Austin Horigan Michael Sundman and my new thing to the table the actual height of child link. Yes child link's height is actually 1 meter. Yes so remember that 10 foot wario incident? Well this is a less extreme version with a percent of error being (133/150)/3.28 which is big for your taste and yes we want lots of theorists yet I gave you crucial evidence so don't squable Matthew boy Its time to theorize. P.S can you use the original theorist intro style of background music with intro words?
