I'm really inspired to create a new setting for some of my characters. So in destiny 2 there was some comment like "this is why you guardians don't go out of the tower much" in response to antics from said guardian. So my fantasy setting will be powerful people with poor social skills who don't get out much from their base due to superstition but some do and they tend to mess things up when they do. One of them takes over the world.

So here's an ability that sounds epic at first until its weakness is revealed. Someone can deliver punches that obliterates all of someone's atoms that come into contact with it no matter how powerful. The downside is that it only obliterates those specific atoms and it stops his momentum entirely as all the force goes into them.

In short, one punch would obliterated a single layer of atoms the size of his fist and his fist would shatter from the change of momentum stopping at a single atoms distance. XD

With that ability, though, concepts such as pressure are irrelevant. Therefore, something affecting a wider area, such as a slap, or better still, a body slam, would be more effective. Additionally, the fighter would want to avoid the other problem, of his fist shattering. Therefore, they would want to actually attack more slowly.

In short, you've created someone who fights most effectively by doing the exact opposite of what most people do to achieve te same thing.

I did come up with how he could attack more slowly, but that would only work on sneak or underhanded attacks or they would simply avoid him. I wonder if a scientist could figure out how slow you'd have to be to not injure yourself on a 1 atom distance stop.

To make the ability slightly less pathetic you could say that if the enemies atoms absorb all the damage then it would also absorb the force hurting the guy with said ability. You would also have to say he can only destroy the single cells that are touched. I forgot how many cells the skin is thick, but it would still likely take hundreds of attacks to break through, more so than the...what...septillions that the atom ability would require?

Got me thinking for the atom smashing, though, it it would set off any type of nuclear explosion depending on how he destroys their atoms. If the area of skin would provide enough material. Also if the person would feel themselves loosing a single layer of atoms and if that could be major trouble even if it doesn't cause a nuclear reaction.

Ricky Hatton's (pro boxer) punch speed - ~25mph
Diameter of a H2O molecule (most common molecule in human skin) - ~0.29nm (0.000000029mm)
25mph = 11176000000nm per second
Deceleration = (0 - 11176000000nm per second)/0.00000000025948461 seconds = -4306999200000000000000000000nm per second per second.
-4306999200000000000000000000nm per second per second = -430699917039m per second per second, or -430699917.039km per second per second.
(If you don't want to read that brick of a number, that's over 430 million kilometres.)
-430699917039m*0.7 (average mass of a human fist) = 301489941927N
(Or three-hundred thousand million Newtons of force.)

So how much is ~300,000,000,000 Newtons of force? Well...

  • About 3300 Newtons will break a rib.
  • About 250,000 Newtons will instantly stop a car moving at 60mph (depending on the car).
  • About 750,000 Newtons are necessary for a rocket to lift off.
  • A 50-kiloton nuke delivers about 450 million newtons of force.
  • And since I'm running out of ideas, it would take about a 34 megaton nuke directly hitting this person's fist to re-create the damage that one punch would cause to them.

Well now I know who to come to with crazy character powers.

In my multiverse a character hits a cannon shot back to the spaceship firing it as if a baseball, and said cannonball tears completely through it with enough power to destroy the small city that was its intended target. So...I'm guessing deflecting low kiloton level power back to sender would be even more drastic than that ability, but not sure. Whatever the case I know logically the shockwave would destroy everything anyways but I still want to keep the scene in for coolness factor. I don't think I'm taking shockwaves into account for much of any battle as they can fight without destroying surroundings unless that's their intent.

Ahh, everything family wise is great. Health wise jacked up my back, contemplating surgery to fix it. This is a relaxing diversion.

Arena is the smallest community, we're also very aggressive folks. Considering the environment. Getting new blood is the hardest part of this deal.
