when you pulled out that Holt physics textbook, it gave me lots of bad memories...
I love physics...and I love its application to Mario games even more! (This video brings back all the bitter-sweet moments of AP Physics)

But matpat can u do a theory of how fast you have to dodge a deadly blue shell because in the actuall mario kart game you can dodge it by mushrooms, golden mushrooms, horns , super star power, bullet bills, or etc Can u do a theory on that???

I play Mario kart 7 and when I know a blue shell is going to get me i get in 2nd place so that the other guy/girl gets hit and not me

Well a super horn is apparently STRONGER than the blue shell cause it DESTROYS Blue Shells
Vassilis Trohidis (2 days ago)
that's why when i see a shell in someone's inventory I use my breaks let the second guy get the lead and stay out of the explosion radius

Wait u said on the other video that is: Dry Bowser with slick wheels and another glider.

i have mario cart 8! for the wii...
Paco Taco (4 days ago)
The cart in real life is 75kg but in Mario’s world the kart minus the glider is 60kg so that would make it wrong

What I want to know is how powerful the megahorn is if it can crush the blue shell in its tracks

Honestly, the ending gag was my favorite part of this vid.

How much vibration from the sound horn is needed to break the blue shell?

u know theres a way to not get hit just let the second place charactor pass u and he gets hit and u win

3:45 I get the effect you're going for, but, if you simplify the numbers, you would see that Ganon actually would have just a quarter of Captain Falcon's. For them to have the same impulse, Ganon needs to 'punch' for 4 seconds. Unless there's some actual math involved that I have yet to learn, if so, please inform me
Paige Owen (7 days ago)
Wait wait wait in your last video the fastest combo of kart and character was different. It wasn't that kart, was it? I don't mean to be rude I love your videos I just want to point it out.

Blue Shells never destroy the karts, their tires, their clothy gliders. Every kart remains intact even after the average of 2 shells per match hitting 1st place. Also the Mario World has magic so when talking about magical items like exploding blue shells aren't fully explainable with normal physics and math. When you bring magic into the fold logic goes out of the window because magic in Mario games never follows a consistent set of rules. Nintendo is smart. This magic is very similar to Disney magic in that it can achieve almost anything and it's like that on purpose because it in turn allows Mario to do whatever Nintendo needs him to do for a story plot without having too much depth or explanation.

With the blue shell I have a trick 1:if a ai or your friend has a blue shell stay calm and slow down 2:when you slow down and your in second place and BOOM you don’t die but it has to be timed on spot

Wow relax dude Its just a game Its just mario kart man Jeeezzz
SansGamer2006 (10 days ago)
actually if you see a blue shell coming its not all hopeless. you just back up into someone else and take them down with you >:)

The best way to start the video 😂😂😂
Nagato Uzumaki (10 days ago)
The impact and the explosion is going to kill you but MAT left out one details. The fire is blue right, so it would be som were around 1600 degrees Celsius or 3000 degrees Fahrenheit which is all most as hot as a (£¥$%*#&) cremation oven. Last word every on who gets hit by the blue shell should not be alive

13:30 or use the horn
Ashton McCutcheon (11 days ago)
I get hit in mk7
Glad I’m not the only one who has got the ball in the Wong lane lol
Chris Check (12 days ago)
A physics nit-pick: When Matpat talks about the angle of the impact, he discounts the impact of the vertical aspect of the hit, which would drastically increase friction with the road. So you don't have to double the force. I don't know relevant coefficients of friction for the road, but they're probably high enough that a significant force pressing down on the cart would meaningfully slow it even IF it weren't also angled to directly oppose the vector of motion.

I have a question, How do we know the "units" actually correlates with the weight in pounds/kilogrammes of Mario? Maybe I missed it... (I love the show btw)

AutoCorrect (13 days ago)
@TheGameTheorists If the blue shell can do that much destruction. Then how much force does the super horn use to destory the blue shell?
Nicolle Valentine (13 days ago)
wait i live in ohio!! and i just took the maneuverability test!!!!! *its awful*
Jacob Foss (13 days ago)
It’s interesting how the game theorists give up the gist of their theories in the first few seconds. Case in point: this video, the ba-bomb video and the bullet bill video.

How about the times when the blue shell hits you underwater?

when i see a blue shell i stop, back up, and go in second place, and when the other player gets hit i speed up forward and laugh.

+Amy Johnson nice, i guess im not alone!
Amy Johnson (13 days ago)
I do that too 😂
But two things would save you the horn and the velocity of a mushroom
