    We've talked a LOT about Super Smash Bros over the years but one thing I've always wanted to touch one was Captain Falcon. You know, the guy with the fire punch. It is a killer move and I've always been curious about it. More so, I've wanted to know if you would REALLY punch so hard that you light your fist on fire. How would that WORK? Well Loyal Theorists, today we find out!

    1. N24 gaming channel

      SSB appear before gx it's not the belt that is connected to his power but rather it's the blue falcon because the blue falcon has the fragment of the big bang and plus the 2nd captain falcon punch black shadow so hard it can be seen in space

    2. Aeryn Axtell

      Yeah, but at the start of the animation of falcon paaaaaaawnch he rubs his punching arm against his other hand's leather glove so he might not have to move as fast because it already generates some heat right?

    3. Jasmine P

      this is wild......

    4. Unju Jon

      Doesn't he also have a kick that goes on fire?

    5. Kage

      I wish i was just as good as spelling as you dude 😅

    6. the Daimhin

      Revalis theme is the best theme ever I dont care about ur opinion

    7. Error Studios

      Falcon Paaaawnch!!!!!!!!!

    8. Peter Matthew

      Captain Falcon still has a terrible ascent

    9. Julia Wara

      Does smash work in ps

    10. Roger That!

      I like how Monkey D. Luffy can use Falcon Punch

    11. Shikido San


    12. Stew H

      Nintendo should really add a sonic boom each time a falcon punch is launched

    13. Neelam Malik


    14. Xander Bucket

      Ok so I just noticed that when Matt says fire it sounds like how ness says fire

    15. D Smart

      I love game theory

    16. Gaming EnderDragon_6

      I click this video because I love this channel

    17. Nidhal Bessassi

      U forgot about his taunt

    18. DJcelda 01

      Couldn't he vibrate very fast to ignite his punch,? That will also cover his up b.

    19. Mr Minecraft

      Why did you put an add in the middle of the theme song!!!!

    20. Pawdy Furry 12

      Falcon Paaaaw-nch When you realise that Captain Falcon is a FURRY..... can't relate.

    21. Defultyboi24 playz

      Me use ing raycons while watching this. Im 4 parallel universe ahead of you

    22. ehTrotcoD

      Starting at 6:57, there are two errors in the displayed graphics. The initial equation correctly writes it as 3/.05, but the calculator image has 3/0.5. Right after this, you correctly note that the result is 60 m/s, but the graphic on screen says 16 m/s. The miles per hour is the correct conversion for 60 m/s.

    23. UmbraDragon

      Hope this gets on the next theory on this topic Captain Falcon vibrates in his victory screens (for reasons I don’t know) so that could be a source of heat needed to use his fire attacks

    24. AidanBlue

      Was I the only one that was glad that he used the Brawl model of Captain Falcon at the start?

    25. BigMacBobby

      He wasn’t one of the original 8...

    26. Kermit Coddington

      Billie irish 😂

    27. Elion Bela

      Olso the oner of the show

    28. Elion Bela

      He regd the game that's he's porkner Stefony

    29. sanu bello

      "Billy Irish"

    30. Атлас {[1]}

      Maybe I’m missing something, but 1375 mph is not Mach 2.8, it’s not even Mach 2. Maybe he meant 1.8

    31. Queenster Sarpong

      He always sounds so smart =D

    32. JJ JBJ

      MatPat: "Captain falcon is one of the original 8 fighters in smash" Everyone else: "Well yes but actually no"

    33. J Bang


    34. Tripp Clarke

      Heavy for Smash

    35. Raheem B

      Plot Twist: Captain Falcon is secretly a fire bender

    36. Conek

      this title reminds me of old GT I hope this video is good

    37. Steve Lucky

      From the first game, but is the only one who doesn’t have any more representation.

    38. Mario

      Falcon:I have the ultimate punch one punch man comes in I take that as a challenge

    39. TY M

      Matpat: FALCON SYSTEM America: wright that down wright that down

    40. Skipper

      Capitan falcon is my favorite character of smash

    41. Richard Whatley

      What about Luigi misfire

    42. negrita

      Sonic should be dead then right?

    43. Official Certified Idiot

      "Air is a fluid." I WAS TAUGHT ALL MY LIFE THAT AIR IS A GAS

      1. GigaGaming 08

        Air is a fluid. A fluid is not exclusive to liquid. A fluid is anything that can change its shape to the shape of its environment. If I put a cup of water in a box it will collect at the bottom. If I put that same water in a bowl it will change to the shape of the bottom of the bowl. The same thing with air and all gases. If I put helium in a balloon it will expand to the shape of the balloon. The same thing with air, carbon dioxide, smoke, steam, etc. So yes gasses are fluid, thus air is a fluid. :) Thank for coming to science with Carson. Hope this clears that up for you!

      2. Kite tenjo [gallade knight/toshiki kai]

        How many more lies I've been told by the Council

    44. W D 14


    45. Nathaniel Chen 1

      Maybe Captain falcon has pyrokenesis or gloves that ha e some sort of ignition system built in.

    46. Natnat 24

      8:43 its just pitched-down yoda

    47. ToxiCastigator

      I really love to a see a video figuring out the exchange rate of Pikmin 2’s “Pokos” (the currency of Olimar’s home planet)

    48. Rick Sanchez

      So, falcon's punch is a ghetto version of guy sensei's attack in Naruto

    49. Name Other Name

      [sees title] No, it’s Falcon Paaaaawnch

    50. Boomer Remover

      The fact that I main him *I THINK THIS ALL THE TIME*

    51. W.D GASTER


    52. Zdechły kot Zezol

      Are you bored?

    53. RovRoving

      mat that's not how frames work in this game...

    54. Lucius XV

      0:52 He just got it right because he played Smash Bros.

    55. Shidoo Tanaka

      im sad he didnt use pink guys song

    56. Pineapple Panda

      How big is captain falcons fist I want to use the falcon system

    57. Luca Dynamo

      Matt says 60, yet the graphic says 16. Hmm...

    58. Jonathan Jones

      I would love to take a class if game theory had one lol

    59. Ian The Cool Thief

      Just ask Johnny Cage lol.

    60. T0xik_Dubz

      11:22...that's not Cap...that's his clone Blood Falcon.

    61. T0xik_Dubz


    62. K.O.G.Fanstarks1610

      Could you do a video on The True overarching antagonist of Astonishia Story?

    63. Edgy_ Pack

      but matt patt death battle said that he can make fire punch's because of his car things reactor might

    64. Jeff Hirsh

      Cynthia, N, Red, Zinnia, Lance, Colress, Ghetsis, Lysandre, and Blue all have better themes than Captain Falcon.

    65. randomgy

      FALCON PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWN- damn it my computer broke and my house is gone.

    66. Lord Karasu

      “Um ackullay, I have seen death battle and I know about the belt”.

    67. Lord Karasu

      Now that’s just favoritism steph.

    68. zombie pro

      "what did you expect when you clicked on our video" LUIGI GETTING BULLIED jk I like luigi

    69. Fat Feline

      I have an idea. If he used friction to ignite gunpowder that may or may not be in his gloves, would it work?

    70. Triforse

      I knew when they spelled falcon paaawnch like punch it was wrong because some people speak in deferent ways so yeah

    71. Octopi

      We could just accept that he has fire powers and not try to make a game fit into our understanding of real world physics... But where's the fun (and money) in that?! 😅

    72. Sean's OC Coalition

      "6 hours of battery life" *Laughs in Bose QC35 II*

    73. tyrone mendoza


    74. Nentinder

      You can only like this comment if you have hit 5 falcon punches in a game

    75. Krizi

      Raycons suck lmao

    76. Dima Menetro

      Isn’t there a death battle video that explains his powers

      1. ADtheTribalChild x TRIBALCHILDGamer

        There's one against Johnny Cage (which was a weird match up, IMO)

    77. Cypher


    78. Jessica Burns

      It is pronounced S-i-zah

    79. Hadou 'Pixel' Taimushedo and Metal X

      The fire could also be from the SHARD OF THE BIG BANG he uses to power the Falcon Flyer which has been shown to give power to whoever wields one

    80. XENOMAN

      You are the scientist we don't deserve

    81. Ryan Langston

      Man I love my ray on e25s but now ones quieter than the other so now there kinda useless, and Raycons customer support doesn’t exist

    82. Cat king miow


    83. Trevor Taylor

      Theme song: *motto* ruining your childhood since 2011 Me: HA I WAS STILL A BABY SINCE 2011 and I don’t really play/watch most of the games he talks about

    84. Trevor Taylor

      Yea the way he says it is FALCON PAAAWNCH!

    85. Epicmonk117

      The “fire” could also be air being compressed until it becomes plasma

    86. Fabíola Marques da silva

      What is the theme in 2:05

    87. Flyin43

      Nintendo clearly made Smash Ultimate with MatPat in mind. They decided he was too good at digging out secrets and gave up trying to hide them anymore.

    88. Lefty - Roblox

      Someone had to have thought of yandere simulator

    89. zonimation

      Who else had an ad play right before the end of his intro. It was so annoying.

    90. Māku

      10:24 charges his right hand 10:28 punches with left hand no fighters has ever escaped it

    91. Supremecrazy

      maybe by wearing the combined belt after he took it off he kept some residual power?

    92. The Vault The Official Channel

      I found out that Limb Obliterator has a pressure that’s more than a fifth of that of Jupiter’s core. And it makes the Falcon Punch look weak.

    93. Foxel Playz

      Wait minecraft Steve is also 2m tall since each block is 1 cubic meter

    94. Chardawg

      Sorry Saitama, but Captain Falcon is the new One Punch Man

    95. Kyng Amore

      So captain falcon is basically going fo a nut shot

    96. GutsofEclipse

      Samus and Captain Falcon: Assist authorities in keeping the citizenry safe from pirates and other thugs, and have the gall to seek compensation for their labor Commie: """Heroes"""

    97. Don W.

      Flacon Punch vs One Punch Man

    98. The Eraser

      Doesn’t that mean that Captain Falcon would need to eat like, a lot of food. Like, a LOT!

    99. luigifandroid

      There also one thing wouldn’t his clothes or body or anything disintegrate

    100. Gary Redfield1
