You should respect others opinion, whether you agree with them or not.
Not if they're spouting nonsense or clearly trolling.
Those calcs are outdated and no longer used. The updated profiles have season 1 Ichigo at mach 23+ and its there on the profile only because its accepted.
And being a wiki, it's possible for someone to have differing opinions on the calculations based on whatever variables get accounted for or change them at their convenience if they are granted permission to edit them on the site. It's why calcs shouldn't always be relied upon to prove a point, especially if you are getting something like triple-digit Mach speed Naruto characters believed to be legit.
KE = 1/2 m v^2. If we take the weight of Ichigo's sword to be 5 kg, then the sword being swung at mach 10 produces energy worth only 28 kg of TNT. That's nowhere near good enough to destroy a 100m high hill or create such a large crater in the ground.
Ever consider that the destruction of the plateau came either as a result of the raw strength bared down by the striking force of Ichigo's swing or whatever output of power he was at when battling Aizen instead of speed? For instance, the Incredible Hulk's not known as a speedster yet he's capable of leveling plenty of buildings from the massive shockwaves emitted when he thunderclaps with his powerful strength.
Just no. If the mach 23+ calc is correct, then its highly likely that the top tiers are MHS.
And again, this is only because you believe it to be correct and consider it correct because it meets up to your "expectations".
This character statement is backed up. Aizen was not cocky when he said his power is greater than the espada's combined power. He considered Yama to be stronger than him.
So you're gonna take the word of the smug snake who was increasingly developing a power complex when the Hougyoku fused with his body? Sure, whatever you say.
Furthermore, this statement is once again backed up by Gin.
Who's been known to be a constant liar throughout much of the series.
More proof - Aizen easily defeated the Gotei 13 members including various senior captains, who had defeated/fought on par with the Espada.
The Gotei 13 never bothered to consider launching a simultaneous attack against him considering they would be owned individually. There's not too large of a power difference between Aizen and members of the Gotei 13, so it wouldn't be too farfetched to believe Aizen could be dispatched through the group's combined efforts instead of attacks in either pairs or individually.
Except that Dangai Ichigo > Transcended Aizen >>> Base Aizen > Combined Espada >> Kid Goku.
Unless you're trying to say the Esoada can beat Transcended Aizen or Dangai Ichigo.
Read my argument above. Power leaps in Bleach aren't as ridiculous as anything like say, DBZ. So it wouldn't be too farfetched to believe a combined group effort could dispatch the more stronger individual.
He can, depending on the size of the mountain range.
When he's only been shown to wipe out much of a plateau? I highly doubt that.
