Range refers to how far the attacks of a certain character can efficiently reach on their own.
For more information about different units of length, please see this page. However, a general guide for categorizing range has been listed below.
Standard melee range (ranges from 1 to 3 meters)
- Applies to fighters using mostly their arms and legs as weapons
- Knives/daggers, gauntlets, and short-ranged weapons would qualify for this range.
Extended melee range (ranges from 3 to 10 meters)
- Applies to fighters who are able to reach further ahead due to being larger than the average, or fighters who are able to extend their limbs further (Ex: Dhalsim)
- Sword/sabers, polearms/spears, and explosives such as a thrown grenade would qualify for this range as well.
Tens of meters (ranges from 10 to 100 meters)
- Applies to fighters who are much larger than normal (Ex: Giant mecha, Kaiju, etc.)
- Most giant mecha are around 10 to 100 metres in height, thus their reach should be around there via melee.
- The distance of how far you can accurate hit something via slingshot
Hundreds of meters (ranges from 100 to 1000 meters)
- The distance that you can reach with a bow & arrow/crossbow
- The distance that you can perceive without a scope; average firing range
Kilometers (ranges from 1 km to 10 km)
- The distance/width of an average city, or the distance between cities.
- Nuclear explosions from weaker bombs can reach this up to this range (Ex: Little Boy explosion radius = 1.85 km, B-61 explosion radius = 5.06 km)
Tens of kilometers (ranges from 10 km to 100 km)
- The distance/width of a large city or the distance between cities.
- Nuclear explosions from weaker bombs can reach this up to this range (Ex: Ivy Mike explosion radius = 15.64 km, Tsar Bomba explosion radius = 26.26km)
Hundreds of kilometers (ranges from 100 km to 1,000 km)
Thousands of kilometers (ranges from 1,000 km to 20,037 km)
Planetary (ranges from 20,037 km to 1,391,400 km)
- Half the circumference of Earth starts at 20,037 km
- The distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384,400 km
Stellar (ranges from 1,391,400 km to 50,290,000 km)
- The diameter of the Sun is 1,391,400 km
- The circumference of the Sun is 4,371,212 km
Interplanetary (ranges from 50,290,000 km to 4.22 LY)
- The distance from Mercury to Venus is 50,290,000 km
- The distance from Mercury to Neptune is 4,443,090,000 km
- Mainly quantifies the distance between planets, or distance between multiple planets, etc.
Interstellar (ranges from 4.22 LY to 50,000 LY)
- The distance from Earth to the nearest star (Proxima Centauri) is 4.2 Light Years
- 50,000 LY is the radius of the Milky Way (radius of our galaxy)
Galactic (ranges from 50,000 LY to 2,500,000 LY)
- The radius of our galaxy, the Milky Way in 50,000 LY
Intergalactic (ranges from 2,500,000 LY to 46.6 Billion LY)
- The distance from our galaxy, the Milky Way and Andromeda is 2.5 million LY.
- Mostly describes the distance between different galaxies in our universes.
Universal (ranges from 46.6 Billion LY to Infinite)
- The radius of our observable universe is 46.6 Billion LY.
- From here, the distance spans to infinity at that point, as there is no exact end to how far the actual universe spans.
Universal+: Attacks are able to reach anywhere within a single 4-dimensional space-time continuum
Multi-Universal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere between two to a thousand 4-dimensional space-time continuums
Multiversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere between a thousand to any higher finite number of 4-dimensional space-time continuums
Multiversal+: Attacks are able to reach infinite 4-dimensional space-time continuums.
High Multiversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere throughout 5-dimensional space.
Low Complex Multiversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere throughout 6-dimensional space.
Complex Multiversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere throughout 7-dimensional to 9-dimensional space.
High Complex Multiversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere throughout 10-dimensional to 11-dimensional space.
Low Hyperversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere throughout 12-dimensional space.
Hyperversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere from 13-dimensional space and above, as long as it is a finite number of dimensions.
High Hyperversal: Attacks are able to reach anywhere within an infinite number of dimensions of space and time (Hilbert space)
Irrelevant: Attacks that are able to reach places where space and direction are irrelevant. Note while it is uncommon, it isn't impossible to have this range while not being Low 1-A or above.
Take note that if this statistic refers to Teleportation or other non-combat-oriented techniques, this should be explicitly clarified within the text.
