    The average chili dog costs $2.50. Times 2,989,017 is $7,472,542.50. With the recommended tip being 20%, that total becomes $8,976,051. If there are 86,400 seconds in a day, that means that if Sonic kept running without stopping for 24 hours he would need to spend $193,688,301,600 to refuel. That's more than Elon Musk's calculated net worth.

    I have an idea for a theory. In the new Addams show "Wednesday", the titular character is shown going to a school where almost all the other characters are mythical creatures. But the Addams have never been explicitly referred to in those terms, even though they do have strange abilities to endure torture and dangerous situations. Are they human? If so, how can the invulnerability be explained? And if not, what are they?

    so hear me out: in the original lore sonic was given his powers through some machine eggman invented, in the movie he is just born with it. I say he has this energy in him, constantly regenerating multiplying and ect. I think that's both stopping him from breaking his legs from running AND powering him.

  • Lasercraft32
    Lasercraft32 Před měsícem +6

    Some of the comments mention how he's not a human and is from another dimension, so his metabolism isn't the same as a humans.... but really what I feel throws this theory out the window is just how much energy his body already contains. Just a SINGLE quill seems to carry a near infinite amount of energy. Makes me wonder if he even _needs_ to eat anything at all. 🤔

      @pws3rd 1
      there are calculations based on the logic that, to make something look stopped without counting that it is time stop, the speed of a snail is used in comparison (that is, what it takes for a snail to travel a certain distance so that it is visible that it is moved, that is 1/83 seconds)or 0.013 seconds

    • pws3rd 1
      pws3rd 1 Před 2 měsíci +6

      @Universal Power yes it does. It means the entire scene took less time in reality and that Sonic was passing those cars significantly faster. It makes all calculations based off that scene completely moot and further points to that segment being complete filler

    You should just use the 1/2m(vmax^2)+energy loss to friction over time x time. To find the energy in joules and then convert joules to calories. That would give you the calories needed solely for his feats without making assumptions of his biology, considering his quils contain infinite energy he might not even have a metabolism and just eats to eat

    So, here's a question, what happens if Sonic's body is some sort of natural battery that can absorb energy from the surroundings. The lightning discharge could actually be energy that he's either unable to take in...or is producing in excess of his use

    • Orchidilia
      Orchidilia Před měsícem

      Lack of training and his young age. I like to think there is all the light and heat due to him being young and untrained. He hasn't learned how to be fully efficient yet at generating and absorbing energy so a lot is lost to heat and light. Just like with how we harness energy, before LEDS coil light bulbs wasted most of their energy in heat, LEDS produce less wasted energy to heat since we have learned to produce light more efficiently. I imagine as Sonic gets older and learns better control he will stop with so much extra discharge.

  • X3M
    X3M Před 2 měsíci +1

    Clearly, there is some other logic to this.
    After all, we got planet busters in DBZ.
    So, what about E=MC²?
    How much energy do you get from 1 chillidog?
    Also worth noting is that the distance in 4 seconds is eligeble for a speed fast enough for a launch into space. Due to the centrifugal force.

  • Dleles9

    2:47 the issue is that a lot of hot dogs comes from beef not pigs. So, the picture of just pigs is kind of misleading. I was shocked when I learned about the prominence of beef hot dogs as I used to think the choice between hot dog or hamburger was largely pig vs. beef. Not a huge issue just wanted to point it out.

    Sonic frontiers has mostly negative to mix reviews.

  • Ingrid Baresen

    I would like to ask a question: what about how he glows? Sonic glows whenever he access his "speed". The reason I ask is because, sonic can cause EMP waves when he goes all out and well, a single quill is enough to power Robotics flying machine. Couldn't stand to be then, that Sonic gets his calories from another source? I mean, a calorie is the heat measurement to raise the temp of water right? Isn't Heat energy? I mean, I think a better question is how much heat is Sonic generating when he's moving so fast.

    Wouldn't another calculation would actually have to be put in considering at such high rate of speed he would of been making like 1 step? What would the 'reversal of direction' at the end of his like 1 step to hit Pacific Ocean of done to him metabolically(granted I worry he would of vaporized the ocean upon touching down causing such a shift in air temp force.... but yeah... that 1 calorie for the trip could be slightly more legit though... granted just thinking of all the possible outcomes that are flooding my head:
    1)Vaporizing Ocean
    2) Monsoon at the least
    3) That moment before he darts off where the strain of that 1 step would impact him
    4) Feet even staying intact from start, shift in direction, or arrival at end
    5) Other shockwaves, control of not just splatting into the wall of a building and so so much more :(
    Now yes... DON"T FEED THIS DOOMS DAY ANIMAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      @ACESGaming Oh, I didn't even think About voice actors. But most games are not shortly after each other. I think his world is 5 times slower than us, so he is 6 years older than when he was 1991. (31÷5=6,2). Sonic 2 and 3 happen shortly after each other.

    • ACESGaming
      ACESGaming Před 2 měsíci

      @Tim Gorg different voice actors doesn't necessarily mean aging, for all we know, all of sonic's adventures could be happening within the span of a year. Other than forces which took place over months, most games happen almost immediately after another.

      @ZoomBox He is nearly two times bigger than in the first game. Also his music (and so his personality) chnaged.
      Then there is this theory about sonic timeline. Search a bit and you find what I mean. According to this theory at the begining he was 10 or 12 and age 1 year every fifth anniversary. (13 years in 1996, 14 in SA2, 15 in S06, 16, in Generations, 17 in 2016, so technically 18 since 2021). And before you saying it's just a theory that is wrong remember that you watched the best theory channel series

    Don't forget that Sonics body is incredibly energy dense. Just a single quill was enough to power Eggman's machine to become equivalently fast. I would hazard a guess that Sonics body is so replete with energy that he doesn't actually need to eat; he just does it because it tastes good and is fun to do, or because he mistakenly thinks he HAS to eat.

      @REALMS SMP STUDIOS🇺🇦 BIOLOGY, he is designed to be able to handle running. What is so hard to understand that he is designed to be able to run like this? A human could never do this, so clearly he is built different to handle it. That includes his body structure, and biological processes like metabolism. He is made for running fast.

      REALMS SMP STUDIOS🇺🇦 Před měsícem +1

      @Orchidilia okay, but if he doesn’t need to, then how does his cells manage to run so fast without burning his cells with friction?

      Orchidilia Před měsícem

      @REALMS SMP STUDIOS🇺🇦 and there is nothing to indicate he runs on an empty stomach. Also yes biology could make it not an issue, if he has no need to eat at all. Also he is built to run, his body would allow him to do it in any situation. He is not human you can't apply "it hurts when I run on an empty stomach" to him since he is not you, not human, and biologically designed to run at speeds nothing else can reach.

    • weeb's legacy
      weeb's legacy Před měsícem

      Probably still needed to eat but I think only very little his body is probably like a super energy generator that just a small amount of food is able to produce energy equal to 15 nukeclare plants and each quill is able to store that energy and more so sonic might just be able to have a nearly unmatch supply of energy from 1 chili dog

  • The Voice of Reason
    The Voice of Reason Před 2 měsíci

    I ran some calculations myself, and your estimate for total calories CAN NOT be correct. In order to accelerate an object weighing 65 lb to 443 km/s, decelerate, accelerate again, and finish with a final deceleration, at least 2.6 billion calories of energy would be necessary. This assumes that the system is perfectly energy efficient, which is impossible, so the actual value must be greater. In order to find this result, I calculated the hedgehog's kinetic energy while moving (KE = 1/2 * m * v^2), then multiplied it by four.

  • ZarcanRadiann
    ZarcanRadiann Před 2 měsíci +1

    3:28 you say 9 seconds but that is inaccurate, it is 9 seconds in sonic perspectives and not in OUR perspective of what 9 actual "normal" seconds are (The vehicles are like "stopped" in his perspective, during busy green light traffic movements)... Sonic cannot be moving at simply 87.8km when the Armoured Truck he is following is actually trying to run away from the police, he would never have reach it as they most likely are trying to run away at faster speed. You forgot to multiply the speed of the truck BY THAT 87.8km, and we can easily guess they where trying to run faster then the allowed Seattle traffic speed limits, witch is above 40.2km/h (25mph) for certain. (no i did not watch the movie yet, but i do have it in my library, just lacked time to watch the first movie before the second one). Most Police chases would have ended at such speed but tend to be in the racing-speed type of speed, so its easy to guess they (the truck) are going faster then 100kmh and Sonic did catch up in 9 seconds, so he obliviously was going at 87.8km * 100+km/h (so more like 8780km/h). Even if they where respecting the traffic speed limit, it still would end up as 87.8km * 40.2km/h (so, minimal is still almost 3,529.56 km/h) and that make more sense.
    I guess your 2 calories for this "sonic walk" was most likely above 200cal due to that (or 80.4cal if respecting speed limit)
    [Know the limit: ... 25 MPH on most arterials (streets with a yellow line down the middle) in Seattle.]

    The speed calculations are all wrong… the 9 seconds of time he used for speed formula, is wrong due to the fact,
    that the time was slowed down for movie purposes,
    all the vehicles and appear to be stopped due to how fast he Is moving, therefore the time duration of how it took him to get there must be wrong,
    in turn ruining his speed formula before he even could calculate it.

    Hey mat love ya but don’t think it would work that way as Sonics energy is based on a push he puts in and as he gets back he’s not tired or out of breath showing he hasn’t had to use lots of energy and therefore his body doesn’t need to consume as much like a precessional runner isn’t starving after running and sonic just by the energy he uses would make him not need as much food as you say

    Would a speedsters body be able to convert the stored energy into actual energy fast enough to not die?

      Any speedster would have to be Choji Akimichi, and use his ultimate to burn all his store energy just to run a short distance at high speed.

    I was so happy about that Jean Ralphio reference tbh, I saw Sonic 2 in theaters with my sister and she didn't watch Parks n Rec so I elbowed her and whispered "that's a reference". She hates me LMAO

    Please keep doing the science episodes, I only watched your channel back in the day because of them and I think we can all agree it’s better to calculate how Ridley kills people than random horror games that no one’s heard of

    I love how technically this could go on any of the sister channels, sonic is a game, the theory covers food and the movie is used :)

    1:49 Shouldn't the "Calories Needed" bar be approaching full _before_ he gets a chillidog? Seems backwards Mr. Editor

    The average chilly dog where this takes place is 3 dollars and 58 cents

  • Newrock Boy
    Newrock Boy Před 2 měsíci +577

    Keep in mind in the first scene, when he ran to get the bad guys, everything was frozen showing that he was actually running at a MUCH MUCH faster speed than Matt calculated and also his calorie usage is innacurate because these formulas are according to the average human and we all know sonic is no where near close to human in biology. So this theory could be innacurate, but remember its just a theory, A FILM THEORY!

      @R.G.C! Like only one spike generates enough power so that lightning can reach the other side of the universe to earth, in one second, that's much faster than light.

    Sometimes I imagine a head-cannon where each channel is it's own entity with its own Matpat and they treat eachother like siblings but also don't actually want to admit they are multiple entities which GTLive has to keep hiding before the others won't stop messing up.

    Sonic actually doesn’t have any powers and the power is in his shoes so he doesn’t have any power

    Mattpatt doesnt want sonic to eat when he says sonic is starving

  • Keylime python
    Keylime python Před 2 měsíci

    Fun video, but I think his speed is mostly powered by the magic lightning energy that seems to be part of him, rather than his chili dog intake. Remember, the lightning from a single quill was enough to power a super-jet.

    Matpat on the first visual you examined, you said he ran it in 9 second as a viewer but for sonic he was moving while everything else was still so not 9 seconds more like 9 milliseconds

    I mean METS are according to human metabolism and how we use energy. Probably sonic has a better use of calories. Heck probably he doesn’t even give heat.

  • Hoover Tesla

    Hold up. How did you manage to come up more calories burned in a second than in an hour? 1.129 bil becomes 1.2xx billion?

    Considering how much crap Sonic has been through over all the years it's nice to know that the people that have been working on him over the years have bothered to make sure we know how old, tall, his weight, hobbies, and pretty everything else for quite some time lol

    • Joey Lydinger

      Considering how much crap sonic has taken, noting the amount of chili dogs he’s eaten, has to have left the green zone looking like the brown zone. 😂

    Sonic didn't know what a chili dog was until mid sonic 1 so how is that supposed to work
