Introduction

This page serves as a reference guide to help people estimate the yield of feats without calculating them. Each stat here is divided up into different classes, each serving as a range of yields for feats of that class. Because strength, power, and durability all use the same units (aside from power being joules per second), they are all covered by the same classes.

If a feat has been calculated to be above the midpoint between the minimum and maximum range for a class, add a "+" to the end of that feat's class listing. As an example, a feat that was calculated to have a yield of 6 Tons of TNT should be listed as "Building Class+", and a feat yielding 120 Megatons of TNT would be "City Class+".

If you use this page to estimate a feat, please add "Estimated Stats" to the page's categories.
