    Earthquake Magnitude chart for opening chasm?

    I was wondering, what would be the use of the Earthquake magnitude chart be for if it is felt across the world with scattered occasions of chasms opening up in the earth where there is lava even?

    Infinity Blade earthquakes - do they check out?

    Would this and this count as an artificial Earthquake? Using the Richter scale, I'd rate it at a magnitude of 4-5 but I'm not sure

    Earthquake Question

    I have a question in regards to how we treat earthquakes which are physically impossible to create on our planet, but happen within fiction, with stated numbers and damage caused to the affected area. We're given a statement within Deadman Wonderland that Shiro's earthquake, dubbed the "Great...

    Gojo Calc Resolution/Earthquake Calcs

    This thread is being made to discuss what end of this calculation (assuming a 4.5 Richter scale equivalent) should be applied to the character's profiles. You can read my comment there raising some concerns about utilizing the low end (which is essentially just the radiated energy) for that calc...

    Question regarding earthquake calcs.

    In this page, Earthquake Calculations, it has you go to this site to get the first values for the Natural Earthquakes calc on the section of that page with the same name. The page says "Instead of looking at the 'Energy' section, one looks at the 'Seismic Effects' section again. There a value...

    Magnitude 10.50000000...1 and Higher Earthquakes

    I'm about to head to work so I can't stay and argue all day @Eseseso found a ridiculously consistent method to calculate the Total Seismic Energy of earthquakes above the magnitude of 10.5. The blog speaks for itself...

    Need help in deciding a method for a feat

    Feat description: A character strikes the ground which causes the surrounding buildings to crack and break as well as the nearby parked cars to jump a few feet in the air. Can we use the earthquake formula as there were clear depictions of tremors? If so, what magnitude is required to achieve...

    How to tier when a character generates a multiple but unspecified magnitude earthquakes?

    Same as above. These were the earthquakes Translation Intensifying the activity of demon in swarming earthquakes. There were countless signs, including large and small.

    Earthquake via Meteor Crash Question

    To quote from the Earthquake Calculations page: 'This method should be used if an earthquake is caused through the impact of a meteor or through an event very similar to that.' What would be some clear examples of something very similar to this?

    Magnitude 12 Earthquake

    Heya. So, I'm working on a Monster Prom profiles. And here is one of the feats I'm unsure of. Magnitude 12 Earthquake. What the energy of such earthquake would be?

    Earthquake / Tsunami Calcs Revision

    After a conversation with DontTalkDT in this message wall here, it has been discovered that a method to find the energy of an earthquake from the height of a tsunami is flawed. The formula currently being used to get the energy of an earthquake from the height of a tsunami is...

    Problem with Earthquake calcs

    Cutting it short, earthquakes take place far away from the surface, to the point that-/+ 1 km is a small margin of error compared to depth. Well, their hypocenter does. Our basis for the magnitudes, the description for them, is the description of what it's like on the surface, not the epicenter...

    Tier for shaking a courthouse or building

    I see this in a lot of cartoons and other series. Where someone quakes the building they are in. From average size to even larger scale like a courthouse. This feat as well specifically. When Phoenix Shakes the courthouse with enough force it breaks a stand. And is a common thing to do in the...

    Earthquake formula and an alternate method

    Tsunami's height for calc earthquake

    It is possible to use the height of a tsunami for calc the power of the earthquake that created the tsunami itself?

    What magnitude would this quaking be?

    Context: Everything shakes and rumbles. Kashyyyk is caught in the throes of tectonic spasms - above their heads, the packed-dirt ceiling gives way one stream of soil at a time. Clumps of moss fall and the massive twisting roots around them writhe just so, like serpents stirred from a restive...

    New calculation for "shaking the world"

    Alright, so, since this is getting suprisingly little evaluation, I figured I would just make this thread and see what comments arise. In summary, as opposed to Island level as we rated it before, anyone who can shake the earth will be Large Country level, maybe higher depending on if the...

    Pokémon: The High 6-C Re-Redowngrading

    Okay, so I spent a little while to write all this up, but here we go. Introductio The fully-evolved Pokémon were reupgraded to High 6-C while I was gone due to this thread, which argues that Pokémon's Magnitude move triggers real earthquakes and not just the radiated energy. Allow me to...

    Would causing an earthquake across the grounds of a castle be Town Level?

    A character throws a punch that causes tremors and shakes apart buildings across the Nagoya castle grounds in Japan. Would this be a Town-level feat? I don't know how big the Nagoya castle grounds are irl.

    Titan Smash!!!

    Earthquake Question

    In this calc for Whitebeard's Earthquake, one of the answers say it is 13.26 or 1.17 petatons, what does that mean? is it 13.26 or 1.17 petatons? is there another step to this? is it related to the logarithm? Please help...

    Tyranitar and Earthquakes

    I'm...still unsure how to handle this. By this point, we are all aware that Tyranitar walking can crumble mountains, and while we can figure out how powerful crumbling mountains is, I'm still unsure how to calculate the power of an earthquake that can do that. And I also remembered this tidbit...

    Earthquake Equation

    I am trying to calculate an earthquake feat that was caused by character's battle that was strong enough to reach all the way from Norway to Eastern China, (roughly 7900 km in radius), the earthquake is strong enough to trigger floods (breaking dams) and trigger volcanic eruptions, so using the...

    Simple Earthquake Equation.
