Have you ever wondered how hard you can hit a character in Smash Bros. in a single go, without actually using an item? Science can answer that question.

It’s unlikely anyone would pull the ridiculous stunt shown off by Beefy Smash Doods off in a normal Smash Bros. game, given how chaotic it is—but damn if it’s not impressive anyway. As it turns out, you have to build something of a mini Rube Goldberg machine to get the most powerful hit in Smash Bros:

First, you get a villager with the third custom down B. Pull out a tree, and knock it down. Then reflect the falling log with Fox. Then hit the log with Ness’s baseball bat. Then hit that with yet another Ness’s bat. The result? A whopping 158 damage from a single hit from that log, enough to kill a character.

Other combinations of hits don’t come close, even if you use counters, villager pockets, or more reflects. Beefy Smash Doods breaks down why in this really informative video—you’ll probably learn a few neat things about how damage works in Smash Bros. because of this. I know I did.

Don’t play this, don’t even own the system.. yet I am strangley interested in the factoring of damage in stuff like this. I’m a odd person.
