>>19637209>Using the minimum energy required to destroy a planet, and dividing by 100,000,000 gives you 500 teratons for the R-9 Standard Wave Cannon. Which would still be far more than what's required to glass a planet's surface.
Which is obviously false, since these weapons were fired on the surface of planets without them doing what you say they do. You claim that your chosen "minimum" for it to destroy a planet, if reduced to 0.000001% of itself, would still be more than enough to cause planetary destruction, which is essentially claiming that the Wave Cannon is a billion times stronger than itself. Since we see R-fighters in areas such as forests, cities, space stations, asteroid belts, and PLANETS, and they fight without obliterating everything onscreen with every shot, there's clearly an alternative explanation
R-fighters aren't all planetbusters. Either this particular bit of versus logic is valid, or everything shown in every game is.>Except that all happens in the lore
No it doesn't. There's a line in a promotional poster that says the Bydo can mess with human thoughts. People "interpret" this as saying that you instantly turn into a Bydo if you even think about them too hard. In the actual games, people are corrupted into Bydo when Bydo flesh absorbs them or collapses around them, and they fail to escape in time.
The Bydo don't instantly corrupt everything. Either this particular bit of versus logic is valid, or everything shown in every game is.>If you despise R-type lore so goddamn much
R-Type lore is good. It's an actual compelling story of humanity fighting for survival against a monster of their own creation, and the tragic existence of monsters that don't realize what they are. One of the greatest things about it is that it isn't a a nonsensical, pointless battle over nothing against an invincible enemy who never loses and always beats everyone instantly.
