Step aside bob omb. Keep on flying Bullet Bill. There is a new weapon causing damage in the mushroom kingdom, and this one is fuzzy, round, and squishy. One of Mario Tennis Aces coolest features is allowing you to break a players racket. But just how fast would you have to hit the ball in order to do so? And what other consequences would arise from that much force? Well that is what we're about to find out.

  • Its confirmed! balls are the strongest weapon in Mario tennis aces, including... Some other type of balls...

    • +querky makeup scifi geek ahh good to hear, Good luck on the script! :D

    • Dark Megumin i didn’t realize you replied to my comment, don’t worry I’m completely safe. I’m an author and what I posted was the beginning to a short story I’m in the process of writing


    • Yeaaah...

  • The new move: Nuclear shot

  • So basically what your saying is to break a racket, kill everyone, and go back to the future, irl you need a flux capacitor attached to your racket.... I really hope something got that reference...

  • 9:05 did you put a pic of YuB here..?

  • yall pls have a great and or blessed life always. our FATHER LORD GOD JESUS CHRIST knows you and is always waiting at a apostolic Pentecostal baptizing in JESUS name holy ghost filled FATHER LORD GOD JESUS CHRIST loving and praising (and loving of all the above for some people) church.

  • *wants to get honey but cant buy anything online cause im too young*

  • Speaking of Nintendo, the launch of Switch Online has changed how you play your games and what games you play. With this newest change to the Switch, the popular game Splatoon, which is almost entirely online, has received many changes. One being the moon now appearing during splatfests, except the fact that this moon is HUMONGOUS! Could we expect a theory of the moon being so big/so close being the cause of the flood that made humans go extinct in the game series?

  • Do a geometry dash theory matpat

  • Ugh mathhh

  • Lol, you even make saving money sound funny XD

  • we wouldnt watch this video because you sad "stuff" about luigis... ""eggplant"" and 8:21

  • Pat you are a pretty damn good mathematic

  • Dear, Game Theory/ Specifically MatPat, I have a special request that you may enjoy digging into. After reviewing your channel and being heavily invested in the fnaf videos you have done I have stumbled across a game you may enjoy deciphering equally as much due to its depth and inability to spell things out clearly. You are capable of doing research that boggles me to the point that I label all your "theories" as fact. League Of Legends has immense character lore and immense characters but nobody can seem to be able to pin down a total lore connected mosaic or the relationships romantic or other that the characters have to each other. If anyone can do this I believe it is you and I think it would mean alot to fans of League if you provided a total question answering complete picture for league of legends lore including timeline, overlapping stories, relationships and more. Unless you have already done this in which case I am an idiot. Regardless thanks for your channel and I hope you consider my request.

  • I would like to use honey, but I don’t have a computer. Oh well, I’ll just have to wait

  • You would be playing happy tennis

  • Next time you make merch pls make some pants and or shorts.

  • MatPat, can we get a Fran Bow theory?

  • Man i hope i was you when i was at highschool

  • The speed required for the tennis ball to snap a titanium racket in half would be about mach 651.66. wow.

  • Positive and negative miner elixer trades

  • Is Honey Moble friendly?

  • You talking about ultimate shear strength gave me minor PTSD of materials science lol

  • Muscle isn’t heavier than fat You take 1 pound of fat & 1 pound of muscle It’s still 1 pound. Fat takes up more MASS than muscle

  • im actually gonna show this to my teacher lol


  • No lie I spaced out.

  • Oh god I did NOT miss your scratchy voice.

  • Thats a possibility but it could also be because of the material the rackets made of since you assumed that they are made of these three elements only.

  • Honey needs to get on phone browsers

  • Australians, we love oursleves some tennis.

  • Wait A BILLION ZAR?!

  • Really sucks that Honey is available for suck a limited geographical market. That should at least be mentioned in a bigger way in your adroll

  • Are you going to make a We Happy Few theory video? I mean, it's packed with all sorts of serid crap!

  • AT time 10:16 the Mario's racket is Wilson letter upside down, who is exited about Luigi's Mansion 3? And don't forget about the splat fest on now.

  • Mat... there's someting happening with college humor ... they post mores code vids. Can u help ! And i found a website named


  • Miner (Clash Royale Pun)


  • What other horrific things BALLS could do....

  • Game Theory you need to watch my newest video because my sister found a secret Toy Bonnie voice line and we need your help!

  • Save us game theory new Super Mario Bros U Deluxe Toadette becomes into Princess Peach

  • 1 Like = 1 Prayer for Wario

  • Waluigi is in a super smash Bros game. It's called super smash Bros crusade

  • You hate Mario don't you?

  • The deadliest wepon is toads annoying noises and uh… just being annoying????

  • This should have been a “The Science” episode

  • I saved $200 dollars in the first day I got honey XD

  • Please do something with Baldi's Basics

  • 10:40 you said cubic instead of square 🤷🏼‍♂️

  • we need a theory on virtual virtual reality

  • Hey Matpat had a issue with Honey for whatever reason it didnt work for me idk if its my browser or what

  • We actually watched a game theory in class

  • Being a plumber, a doctor, a tennis player etc, what is Mario's total salary? And hus friends?

  • Am i the only one who kept smacking my computer to the tune of the intro? yes? ok....

  • M Ma Mat Matp Matpa Matpat Matpat, Matpat, Matpat, c Matpat, co Matpat, cou Matpat, coul Matpat, could Matpat, could Matpat, could y Matpat, could yo Matpat, could you Do Pixar theory. Do Pixar theory Do Pixar theor Do Pixar theo Do Pixar the Do Pixar th Do Pixar t Do Pixar Do Pixar Do Pixa Do Pix Do Pi Do P Do Do D

  • can you do a theory of peachette!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • If I were to guess is that if all the rackets break from the same point then it probably is a manufacturing error. So that they are likely to break.

  • Can I just say explaining the math is something that’s been missing. I really like how the physics is explained. Thanks Mat Pat.

  • Does Star wars battlefront 2 answer the question of Rey's parents?

  • why isn't this a "The SCIENCE" video

  • Matpat someone else actually did the math on something similar as a tennis ball traveling that fast. It was with a baseball traveling 90% the speed of light. It’s part of a really interesting and funny book called What if? It’s really cool. In this case the results might be slightly less severe, but it’s still pretty cool

  • 7:10 I actually made this same change at work when calculating shipping cost on huge orders over the Summer, because a) our scale maxes out at 25lb., and b) ounces suck to multiply. It will be forever burned into my memory that our calendars are 0.27KG each...

  • #WAKEYWAKEY C'mon Mat! DHMIS is back! Yroo Xrxsvi Girzmtov! Theory!!!!

  • This was a boring episode

  • Tutor me , this vedio already helped me pass my physics unit test

  • Mat’s obsession with infomercials really shows at the end 😂

  • OK so this is going to be EXTREMELY OFF TOPIC but I think a good theory can come out of one of the games that just went V1.0. In other words, the game "DISTANCE". I thinks a theory is there for what actually happened to the city they portray in game. and yeah its far fetched that mat pat and game theory will even see this but if they need a new theory to look into, I think "What happened to the city in DISTANCE" would be a good one. here's hoping for my comment not to drown in the flooding inbox of game theory. here's hoping.

    • this is here because this is last theory they have done as of 9/20/2018. this comment will not be Ctrl-C Ctrl-V-ed on any other theory on behalf and respect of Game Theory, and will not take up space from otherwise more whitey and thought out comments. It is a simple request and suggestion and is meant to be nothing more. This is not a threat or "YOU DO THIS OR SPAM COMMENT" but merely a fan wishing for more entertaining content and wishing he could give input to the "Theory Jar". if there are more direct ways of contact to Game theory so I could help get this to them it would be appreciated by me. If you have such answers just Reply under this comment. Thank you if you read this and a Big thank you if any of the Theorists read this. I hope you all have a fantastic day.

  • Tell me, have you ever considered becoming a teacher all? Maybe when you decide you're done with US-tv? Because you'd make a good physics teacher.

  • It's the apocalypse at the Nintendo universe

  • Hi.

  • its aluMINIum not aluMINum, america when will you join the rest of the world, in... everything, politics, measurements and grammar

  • What if the rackets were made from wood? That would be the reason to why the rackets weren't hollow and why they break easier. Yes I know that it's not very professional but it's mario.

  • "Will smack it for a racket." *matpat...*

  • Hey make an episode about who’s more stronger Princess Daisy Or Princess Peach

  • Spoilers for the vid! An that, my friends, is how to create a nuclear explosion by playing tennis...

  • TI-83s? PSH. Get a TI-84 plus and then we’ll talk.

  • I will tell my math teacher about this.... and my science teacher because there’s science in there. I SAW IT! I know science! 8th grade science even though I’m in 7th grade. Ok I’ll stop saying that. Just please forget that.... plz

  • Thank for ruining that game. THANK

  • this is really awesome!

  • Have you ever thought about doing a Fire Emblem episode?

  • Matpat you are a legend! Like if you agree

  • I am legit doing physics homework while watching this. Matpat get out of my closet!

  • As an actual tennis player AND math/physics buff I’m shocked...

  • I will do you one better I have a TI 82

  • So what would the numbers be if said mario racquets were hollow instead of solid?

  • well i see SOMEONE aced PHYSICS

  • Thx MatPat, now I can laugh at my teacher for saying I’m a idiot

  • WAAAA!!!! My too favourite characters are healthy!

  • Discord server for ARG

  • •~•

  • Omg love the intro song

  • ,___, [O.o] /)__) -"--"-

  • Considering im actually doing physics this year, these videos make so much more sense to me lol

  • now its our turn mat to give you a cold lucid undermined elphant.

  • Make a clash of clans theory. I saw the miner lol

  • 8:52

  • Find mat pat in 11:04

  • *Who else keeps watching game theories and hears MatPat's computation and doesn't understand a single thing and doesn't care about the numbers but still enjoys watching and is always waiting for the conclusion of his theories? Only me? Oh. Okay..*

  • Holup. I gonna have to pause and come back later cuz I just woke up and I can’t do math rn TwT (I can’t do math. At all.)

  • honey is so sweet that it gives us money but cant download it though I dont waste money on consolse or whatever
