    Surprised he didn’t bring up the problems with his original sonic video. Like, he miscalculated pretty much the entire thing.

    PLEASE!! Do a game of thrones theory about Bran being the real villian of the show. That he saw how things would end and did nothing to stop it because he was evil, and let it all happen to begin with. So he would get the crown.

    Okay, figuring out just how fast Sonic can go is cool, but. Imma still despise this just for the design. Hollywood could've still done all the cool lightning effects with a more accurate design. I mean.... freaking 'Detective Pikachu' did this better! Does it still look weird? Yes. But at least the makers put the effort in to keep the Pokemon true to their original designs. The Sonic makers can't say that. This movie, regardless of what some people might think, will tank.

    Okay I get that sonic is fast but he wouldn't speed up gravity right. I mean you can see him hopping from drone to drone and it's not like he's jumping directly in a straight line. He's jumping up and then falling on another drone. But since he doesn't speed up gravity the falling part should take forever right? Or am I just missing something

    So a few things I just thought of while watching, assuming the information in the video is correct.
    1. I am not good with math or physics, but I assume that sonic isn't running that fast right off. Is he accelerating exponentially? If so, how far would he have to travel to reach that speed? Was this mentioned in the theory? What would happen if he just moved that fast right off? But he would have had to accelerate, because there was a 'blur' running, and then the EMP. Right?
    2. Looking back at some of the other theories, particularly the 'superman destroys the world' one, would sonic be doing the same thing? He is moving just as fast, I believe.
    3. Assuming the the second point is correct, what would happen if he is moving in a 'central' area, instead of in a straight line, like in the drone sequence? Would that take care of all the drones? And he is using 'sonic vision' and makes small little, but very fast movements, like tapping his foot, would that still be a problem?
    Don't have any answers. Just thought it was interesting. Sorry it was long.
