Figuring Kratos' strength via Cronos fight. Attempting calculations that to me are pretty advanced. Willing to take criticism if someone (LOGICALLY) disagrees with these estimates. I will be going by low end figures for this estimate as well.

Average male weight: 189.9 lbs

Average weight lifted: body weight

Average male grip strength: 106 lbs

Estimating Cronos' size:

For this I point everyone to the youtube link posted. In this case we can see that Kratos--at best-- is as tall as maybe a 1/5th of the titan's fingernail. While I could find no links on a comparison of fingernail size (length) to finger/hand size I used my own hand as a judge: My fingernail is approximately 1/6 the overall length of my index finger. My index finger is half the overall length of my hand (while mentioned as an average I can't find the link for the source on this).

Using this as a scale I'm going to attempt to figure out exactly how large the Titan is. Then continue on up to figure out his dimensions and use human cell density (once again low end) to get an approximate weight. Following that I will use the average human lifting strength (link above) to get an approximation on Cronos' strength. Then (once again the links above) figure out grip strength based on that (average is about 55% overall lifting strength on average).

That would (theoretically) lead us to a strength feat for Kratos.

If someone knows of an official height on Kratos please let me know. Until then I will use an average of 5'10" (70 inches, 177.8 cm) for Kratos in order to do these calculations.

69 inches x 5= 345 inches

345x6= 2,070 inches (finger length)

2,070x2= 4,140 (hand length)

Now I direct you to the average human proportions chart. The average hand length is a hair more than 1/9 the overall height of the person. Once again for low end we'll round down and use the 1/9 figure.

4,140x9= 37,260 inches (overall height)

37,260 inches= 3,105 feet=946.4m

Cronos is nearly a kilometer tall as a low end.

Now to scale the weight to the height.

Cronos is 540x taller than the average human. Perhaps someone knows a better formula (I'm winging it here) but if we did that to the average weight (and Cronos is definitely not of the proper girth for "average" weight) we'd get 102,546 pounds. That translates to 51,273 tons. Assuming Cronos can lift his own weight as with the average and the average grip strength is between 50-60% max lifting strength it puts Cronos grip strength 28,200 tons.

Obviously Kratos wasn't dealing with the entire of Kronos grip strength. However, I can't break it down any further than that (with a finger basis) to get any more accurate than that. I find it extremely unlikely to think though that an overall grip strength of 25k+ tons would somehow equal less than 100 tons of strength.

I await the inevitable flaming for doing the calculations wrong.
