    Default How strong is Obelix?

    What class would Obelix be in, according to our standarts?

    Around Class 50?

    Stronger than that, in Twelve Tasks Of Asterix he threw a javelin - in a manner one would throw a paper aeroplane - and it fully circled the earth and kept going.

    While pulling five Egyptian ships through the water of the Nile, he sprints at such speed it creates a giant plume of water behind each ship. These ships are large enough to carry roughly 100+ tons of granite, each; they're quite big. He does seemingly without effort, for an extended period.

    He has another feat which I cannot off-hand find, but vaguely recall as him throwing a tree between continents, over the Atlantic Ocean (I think it was a tree...maybe?).

    He's at least Class 50, if not beyond.

    Twelve Tasks is of somewhat iffy canonicity, with regards to the primary canon. ^_^ It's similar to the whole DBZ 'manga versus anime' situation.

    Now that I think on it does end on the quote "It's only a movie, anything goes," and then Obelix spontaneously learns how to teleport so certainly salt required.

    I'd still pitch him as a little above Class 50 myself, not hugely, but a smidge.

    Obelix At Sea: Obelix runs a Roman ship (it's huge) up onto the beach with such force it goes up an earthen berm and smashes through a palisade wall that's at least 100' from where the waves are crashing on the shore. He does this...by using a single set of oars in the water.

    That's...insane.

    Basically, it was a movie written by the guys who did the comics, but it was still made to be an animated movie. It doesn't match up too well with the rest of the series, ending with Caesar abdicating to Vitalstatistix (English name) and going to retire with Cleopatra.

    Indeed. I'd say he might crawl up to Class 60, but barring someone finding feats that are wildly out of what I've seen, that's pushing it.
