Attack Potency

Attack Potency (often called Destructive Capacity) is the term used to determine the amount of damage a character can produce. It is measured in units of energy. An alternative term for Destructive Capacity which has more direct meaning: The Destructive Capacity that an attack is equivalent to. A character with a certain degree of attack potency does not necessarily need to cause destructive feats on that level, but can cause damage to characters that can withstand such forces. The attack potency depends upon the energy output of the attack, not the area of effect of the attack.

It is important to remember that a character can also have the attack power defined by scaling with another. Basically, X characxter is Y level because it hurt Z character who has Y level durability.

It should be noted that attack power and destructive ability are different things, if a character A holds a nuclear bomb and character B kills A with a blow, B has city-level power, even though he cannot destroy a city itself, for some reason like range or whatever.

Explanation

Standard sizes

  • Moon level: Earth's satellite Moon.
  • Small Planet level: Mercury.
  • Planet level: The Earth.
  • Dwarf Star level: Brown Dwarf star (specifically, the OTS 44).
  • Star level: The Sun.
  • Large Star level: Rigel
  • Solar System level: The star system known as the Solar System.
  • Multi-Solar System level: Instead of doubling the value of Solar System level, the distance between two such systems needs to be accounted for as well. The calculation for energy required to destroy two solar systems was done, with the following assumptions:
    • Distance between them as the minimum distance between Sun and the next closest star, the Alpha Centauri.
    • A spherical blast, strong enough to obliterate the contents of both solar systems at the same time.
    • Hence, the value obtained is the energy required to destroy two solar systems at a realistic distance.
  • Galaxy level: The Milky Way galaxy.
  • Multi-Galaxy level: Instead of doubling the value of Galaxy level, the distance between two galaxies needs to be accounted for as well. The calculation for energy required to destroy two galaxies was done with the assumptions:
    • Distance between them as the minimum distance between Milky Way Galaxy and the next closest similar-sized galaxy, the Andromeda galaxy.
    • A spherical blast, strong enough to obliterate the contents of both galaxies at the same time.
    • Hence, the value obtained is the energy required to destroy two galaxies at a realistic distance.
  • Universe level: Given that the universe's actual size is unknown, we do not know the amount of energy that would be required to destroy all matter within it. As such, the bare minimum value for the observable universe was calculated as a lower border instead. Any greater finite number is also included within this tier, whereas countably infinite numbers are included under High Universe level.

Additional terms

"+" symbol

The "+" symbol should be used when the Attack Potency has been calculated to be greater than the average (arithmetic mean) of the high end energy level and low end energy level of a particular tier.

The "+" symbol can also be used if there exists a calculation extremely close to the arithmetic mean, and characters scale above the calculated feat by a wide margin, for example being able to defeat enemies on such levels with a single casual attack.

Example: Average of Large Building level is: [2 Tons (low end) + 11 tons (high end)]/2 = 6.5 Tons (the arithmetic mean). All energy levels from 2 Tons to 6.5 Tons should be listed as Large Building level, whereas all energy levels from 6.5 Tons to 11 Tons should be listed as Large Building level+.

High

"High" will be utilized only if the instance matches with the revised Attack Potency chart.

Example: If a character is in the upper range of a tier such as Solar System level, said character will be listed as "Solar System level+", not "High Solar System level".

Low

"Low" will be utilized only if the instance matches with the revised Attack Potency chart.

Example: There should be no usage of "Low 7-A", because it does not correspond with the revised Attack Potency chart.

At least

Should be used to denote the lower cap of a character, if the exact value is indeterminate.

At most

Should be used to denote the higher cap of a character, if the exact value is indeterminate.

Likely

Should be used to list a statistic for a character with some basis, but inconclusive due to the justification being vague or non-definitive. The probability of the justification in question for being reliable should be favourable. This term should be used sparingly.

Possibly

Should be used to list a statistic for a character with some basis, but inconclusive due to the justification being vague or non-definitive. The probability of the justification in question for being reliable should be notable, but mild. This term should be used sparingly.

Higher

This should be used to denote a character's weapons, techniques, or attributes that are much stronger than their base level, but still within the same tier. For example, a character that is Solar System level but has an attack that multiplies their power by 100 times. In this instance it should be written as “Solar System level, higher with that ability or technique”.

Furthermore, higher may also be used to denote a case where the character is possibly or likely a higher tier, but to what degree is not specified. This is specifically referring to cases such as “At least 4-B, likely higher” or “At least Solar System level, likely higher”.
