My issue is that most of them are just scaling up to High 8-C+ because three of their members possess legitimate feats in that tier, but without actual evidence to suggest they're comparable, not remotely in the same way a lot of heroes are scaled to one another via Okame-Chan and RW's rankings. I understand the logic of having such a large gap between heroes being strange, but as the prior two examples have shown not all heroes are equal, and rankings definately don't demonstrate who is more powerful, Mizuki for instance is fairly low into B-Class but is stronger than a lot of A-Class heroes.
Basically I just find upscaling them all up to High 8-C+ to be too easy for liking. Above all else I'd prefer if they all scaled to their own feats or proper scaling.
While I don't have an issue with his rating, there might be an issue with MB's baseline ranking. He's currently ranked for outlasting Genos against Kabuto in the VGS, which normally would be grounds for solid scaling. However the nature of Fighting Spirit makes me find this somewhat questionable. As I understand it at least, FIghting Spirit essentially allows him to withstand and endure attacks way way way higher than his actual body can take, up until the point that it adapts to the punishment being dealt. This is how he goes from Demon to Dragon level in the first place. Its not like he has to fight a couple demons or rely on the Dragon to lightly tap him a few times before becoming Dragon level himself, the implication that is he can take full on dragon level hits before his fighting spirit makes him comparable. Essentially, given the nature of his ability, the fact that he outlasted Genos may not be an indication of him being more powerful.
I kinda agree on the first point. Only Stinger and those who rank above him on the Okame Mask should scale to Spring Mustachio, maybe Death Gatling is debatable. The rest can scale to Snek who scales above Dave.
I can understand the top 10 scaling, but I'm unconvinced by the legitimacy of sitch's claim considering that 10 includes Death Gatling, who by Garou's own metric is nowhere near S-Class. Snek scaling doesn't work either since he's also High 8-C+, probably the most legitimate one out of the three since he did it with a physical strike. Lightning Max you could argue for since he did his with his lighting shoes, so perhaps he's only 8-C by himself and High 8-C+ with his shoes. If you go this route you could argue for some solely physical fighters to scale as well, but even this might be a stretch since unlike most heroes Snek and Max are actual martial artists.
I'm unconvinced with MB to be honest. The nature of his Fighting Spirit makes me feel that any durability and endurance feat isn't a specific showing of power but rather something that he can do in general regardless of what level he's at. Its not much of an issue right now but it might be worth bringing up incase it is an issue.
No I wasn’t referring to actual rankings, just ratings on the Okame Mask. So Child Emperor and Great Philosopher would scale due to being physically stronger than Stinger. Snek doesn’t actually scale to any High 8-Cs if we change the requirements.
I don't really understand Stinger's scaling tho, is there something that legitimately scales him to Spring Mustachio? Snek himself managed to dispatch one of the three crows who are High 8-C+ by way of being very high tier Tigers.
Yeah Stinger tore the arm off a Grizzly Nyan offspring. His supporting feats are taking down the seafolk army by himself. He has the most impressive track record of any other A class heroes aside from the top 4.
That Grizzly Nyan feat was an outlier tho, not only was it a demon but one of them managed to fight Genos briefly which would make it at least baseline High 7-C. A feat like that is way above his typical showings, for instance those seafolk still managed to greatly bruise his face with his their strikes.
They looked about the same from what I recall, and it'd be pretty weird for each offspring to vary in power by such a huge margin. Either way the the fact that they were all Demons still makes the scaling very questionable.
The matches between Yujiro and Raiden were done 2 times in different conditions, there's no need to remove them because they are different and not the same. There are cases when a character loses/wins twice against the same character.
