So, when making the Bullet Bill profile, I noticed that several Bullet Bill types are golden. Namely the Bombshell Bill, Golden Bullet Bill and Golden Banzai Bill, as well as possibly the Bouncing Bill and Magnum. Since the calculation uses the density of iron to find the mass of a Bullet Bill, the AP would be different for variants made of gold. And it turns out the density of gold is a higher value than that of iron, according to:
The most consistant find was 19.32 g/cm^3, as opposed to the 7.87g/cm^3 for iron. So, using our last calculation, but with a new density value, we find:
19.32 g/cm^3 = m / 209,685.54464 cm^3
Therefore m = 4051.12472kg
It weight over twice as much! Now to use …Read more >
Whilst the Banzai Bills have no destructive feats in Paper Mario: Colour Splash, instead spreading Black Paint, that doesn't mean we can calculate their AP. They are still a Banzai Bill, so we could use the same calculation as we did for the type from the main Mario games.
However, it is very hard to measure their size. We only get one instance where we can compare their size to Mario at a good angle:
Therefore the Banzai Bill's radius is 404.24195627cm
Problem is, there is only one dimension we can measure... Perhaps using a ratio from the already found NSMBW will help, as they use the same shape apporximately. Otherwise, let me search more...

So, the strength of a Bullet Bill was solved, so using the same method, we should be able to find the same methods as we did last time. As Banzai Bills are a variant of Bullet Bills, we'll say their composition is also iron
So, to start, we can look to Game Theory's video, where they shortly address Banzai Bills. In it, they claim that the mass of a Banzai Bill is 58,000kg, but this seems too round. They never elaborate on how they got 7.4 million cm^3 for the volume, but we can at least still use it to find a more accurate value for mass.
7.87g/cm^3 = m / 7,400,000cm^3
This is a lot nicer, and it's larger, so we can get a better value too! Using the KE equation, as we did with Bullet Bill, we get a result of:
0.5 x 58,238kg x (31.2…Read more >
So, recently, I've been thinking about the strength of a Banzai Bill, due to an implied feat concerning Squiggler. I just naturally put them as Building level because they were vastly superior to a Koopa Troopa, but Koopas have since been downgraded to Wall level. As such, the Wiggler profile isn't really that accurate anymore, including Squiggler's defence... so how about I calculate their strength. I luckily remembered an episode of Game Theory which covered just that, but their result was in Netwons, which we don't use for AP: We use joules or tonnes of TNT. Whilst there is an equation to convert force to energy, we have no value for distance, because there isn't really a distance to speak of. So, I'll be using the simple KE equation. L…Read more >
as you know, i change my picture every month, and now it is August... and i am stuck. I don't know what to use... so i came down to two pictures... and i don't know which is best...
(both feature a girl called Alice, so how fitting)
I like the MariAli picture, as it is my OTP and looks kinda cute... also, Alice (on the right) is wearing her PC-98 outfit (her equivalent of Mario's NES red overalls and brown shirt)... i always liked the PC-98 outfits...
but, i like the one of Alice (and Shanghai, her doll) which that insane look on her face... as well, it fits me: an insane Alice...
so, i will leave it to you... vote time!!!Read more >
