Scaling Attempt #3 Tsunami Iceberg (One Piece)

Posted 01-05-2011 at 06:14 PM by Cableguy15
For this blog I'll be scaling the size of the tsunami iceberg(s) that Whitebeard made, Aokiji froze, Mihawk cut in half, and Whitebeard destroyed. Note that I've already posted this in a thread, but so people can find this easily, I'm putting it in my blog too.

Using this scan, I can get the size of the bottom half of the ship.


As you can see, I took the largest marine shown on-panel and compared them to a measurement that spans from the bottom of the ship to the deck. Note that I had to measure at angles for both of them because the view is a bit funny there, making it seem like the marine is standing at an angle as well as the part of the ship I'm measuring. I also assigned the marine measured a height of 1.72 m so nobody can really complain.

The bottom of the ship measures at 265.6 pixels tall, compared to 7.6 for the marine.

265.6 / 7.6 = 34.95 * 1.72 m = 60.11 m, the height from the bottom of the ship to the deck. Next, I'll include the mast.

With this scan, I can get the full height of the ship, masts included, while also measuring the height of the point where the tsunami breaks (The largest curl at the top)


To get the full height of the ship, mast and all, I'll take the bottom of the ship's height of 22 pixels and divide by 18.2, the other measurement for the mast.

22 / 18.2 = 1.21. 60.11 / 1.21 = 49.68 m + 60.11 m = 109.79 m, the total height of the ship.

Next, I compare it to the largest curl seen at the top of the tsunami, so I can compare that a little later.

22 + 18.2 = 40.2 pixels (Total height of ship). I got 131 Pixels for the height of the largest curl, so...

131 / 40.2 = 3.26 * 109.79 = 357.92 m

Finally, I can use this scan to compare the top curl to the rest of the tsunami.


I measured the largest curl at 178.8 Px... really quite conservatively. I did this because it's at a different angle than my earlier scaling. To get the height of the tsunami, I simply measured the two different parts that were severed, then combined their sizes to get a total of 285 pixels.

285 / 178.8 = 1.59 * 357.92 m = 569.09 m + 357.92 = 927.01 m for the tsunami height. Eh, close enough to 1 Km, right?

The width is even larger.

285 + 178.8 = 463.8 pixels. Using the total width of 819, we can get the size.

819 / 463.8 = 1.77 * 927.01 m = 1,640.81 m

So then, that gives us:

Tsunami height: 927.01 m

Tsunami width: 1,640.81 m, or 1.64 Km

At this point, I can't even edit this scaling because there's three other scalings that are based off of it.

Tsunami Iceburg Scaling Part 5

Almost feels like a poor running gag

Hmm. Why do we need a Part 5?

We don't

Joke suggestion.

I'm sceptical about the height you got. Only because if you scale it using the scan with the ship on top of the tidal wave you get more than 900m and it's not even the whole thing.

Maybe look through the scans and compare them to the height of the marineford hq building GM?

Given the height I got for that was about as tall as the figure for Cable's tsunami calc.

It must be an inconsistency in the drawings of the tidal wave then. I've been wanting to redo this one for some time now because it's quite sloppy and there's probably better methods, but there's like 5 other scalings based off of it, so I didn't.

I think I'll have to do another one regardless though, for reasons you just pointed out.

Though on second thought, I don't know if that proves that it's wrong. It's really just that I had originally thought the slash popped the other half of the iceberg up (Similar to Dragonball's Kienzan) at the time of doing this, but that's generally not accepted anymore.

So it's actually larger than 927 m. I remember someone getting something more like 1,000 +, which would explain why it's around 900 in the initial scan and you still can't see the bottom. There's still over 100 m to go before the bottom...
