        well alright... though i will say that while toonforce at its strongest could still be one of the most formidable and broken powers out there, I still think that it heavily varies from character to character and that people should avoid applying too much blanket statements for toonforce, whether good or bad.

        Well you seemed to have missed my point, I was saying that instead of feeling culture shock in the form of majority ethnic population, it's in the form of primarily American vs Japanese pop culture and visual media or Western vs Eastern arts, aesthetic, ideas, forms, style, etc.

        Like aside from American, Japanese, and possibly British, what if there was a category that was basically like Japanese or "Asian" or "Oriental" but not actually Japanese/Nipponese itself? Silly hypothetical question for me to meditate on, but...
        Feb 7, 2017

        which is the reason why I said that various series like RWBY are about somewhere in between being an American/Western and Japanese/Eastern series. Sorta like the Trans-Atlantic or Mid-Atlantic Accent for the USA vs UK actors and movies.

      One question at a time. I did not know. As for Hollywood movies, the majority have always been bad with some enjoyable from the lot of bad and some diamonds. As for foreign movies, hard to say because am not exposed to be so many movies like those,not large enough sample for such, could just be seeing the good stuff more than the greater mediocre and bad.

      That is also why you see Eru far less than you see the Maia and demonic entities like Morgoth and Sauron in Vs. forums since their feats are far more consistent and less vague. Another example is Naruto, since we also weren't sure, until we got confirmation, of the power of the Rikudo Sennin, which is why many preferred to just not use him.
    23. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      Such vagueness makes it difficult to estimate the power of gods, and thus it can cause both overestimation and underestimation. It's not even a problem reserved for mythologies, it's also common with fantasy works like Lord of the Rings. There are flame wars across fora regarding the actual power of Eru, for instance, since Tolkien is not that clear with his cosmology.
    24. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      Like you yourself said, mythologies are very different, and the Polynesian view of the universe also is not something static, it has changed across the centuries just like the European view of the universe, and the same goes for all peoples and their myths.
    25. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      Then we run into the problem of mythological works that were written more recently, like certain Polynesian and Native American myths. Are the descriptions of gods like Tangaroa, the Polynesian creator deity, taking into account the model of the universe that was then commonly held by scientists, or is it based on a different cosmology?
    26. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      That's not even getting into how there's a lot of allegory, making some feats even more confusing. For instance, is a certain hero actually the son of a god or is that description a mere allegorical statement for someone who is devoted to that god or merely a way to say that hero is very strong and proficient?
    27. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      Then we have the identification of Earth goddesses like Gaia and Prithvi with the whole of the "world". Or making moon gods on par with sun gods, as we see in Norse mythology, when we know the moon is far smaller than the sun. In Mayan mythology, are gods like Bacab that sustain the weight of the "world" considered universal or close, or just planetary level?
    28. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      For instance, we don't know what authors exactly mean by "stars", "sun", "moon" or "world". This makes feats like Hercules creating constellations very confusing and very contradictory with feats where Hercules has trouble with beings like the Hydra or the Hyperborean dragon that are clearly far from star level.
    29. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      This is not to say that gods are weak, I would rate most mythologies at least around DBZ level (not Super, though), but the problem is that it is difficult to establish feats with clarity when we have contradictory statements or lack of clear definitions.
    30. Mabel Gleeful
      Mabel Gleeful
      Yes, I love reading mythologies, and that's why I don't like using myths in Vs. forums. They're not like narrative works or novels and don't translate well when we try to measure the power of gods and such. It's like trying to use a poem describing nature.

        they're not the super physical fighting type... but seeing as this anime does have at least mild amounts of toonforce, you would see guys like Kuromi and Baku surviving some physical punishment such as being hit all the way into the sky and plunging down from great heights without lasting injury.
