remember the kurzgesagt video about all the nukes? tia is bigger than that nuke cube.

A F or G rate star is not massive enough to go supernova, as JP said.
Still, just by definition, it has more power than anything a pre-type I civilization can achieve.

To be fair an earthquake wouldn't make mountains "wiggle" either. To me it looks like a visual representation of air ripple from the sheer pressure of the sound waves, rather than a literal ripple in the rock of the mountains and hills.
I haven't heard about terraforming with bombs, though. Can that really be useful, unless you specifically want a glassed wasteland? I suppose you could create a nuclear winter too, but that's not really a very desirable effect.

To be fair the only reason a bigger bomb hasn't been built is because there's no need. It's very difficult to test (Tsar Bomba was engineered for 100MT, and then halved just to make testing it less dangerous, and the planes that dropped it were still at risk), and it's not actually useful as a weapon — only as a publicity stunt (tactical missiles, with medium yield warheads, are much, much more cost-efficient, easier to use, etc.).

@Macaroni C-Pony
A camera shake is [i]much[/i] more plausible than an earthquake, so while that is a fun analysis I'd say it's too fundamentally flawed to take seriously.

I just realized, she could just set the sun on a crash course to Earth, Therefore ending all life on the planet and disrupting the entire solar system.

For maximum hilarity, the strongest explosion humanity has triggered isn't even the most powerful explosion that was sourced to Earth's surface — that would be Krakatoa, about 200 megatons of instantanteous energy release.

The MLP sun does not work like ours, and I would honestly not be surprised if all magic could do to it is move it around the planet at a predetermined distance (I am aware that there was an old, old statement by one of the showrunners that their sun is like our own, but that's crazy iffy just based on how much it's properties are contradicted in the show). Even when Twilight was moving the sun and moon with minimal control in TK and BDaD, they never once got closer or farther than normal. Either that, or the sun and moon aren't actually physical objects, but rather magical projections on the sky that generate day and night (which is apparently more than just the lack of day in Equestria).

Rapid changes in the sun's position don't seem to have any negative effects on orbits or gravitational effects, so it doesn't seem to control that, either.

Finally, the sun might not even generate heat; Celestia moving the sun to directly overhead did not come up as a temporary option during The Crystalling, and eternal night in NMM's bad timeline didn't seem to make the area any colder despite being like that for years, so it seems likely that the sun does nothing in Equestria by generate light, with heat generated by some other means.

So, I think it's entirely likely (though not guaranteed) that the bomb is more dangerous even with Celestia having control of the sun.


Well, They did it with the moon

When has logic ever applied in MLP? We're talking about a world where an energy source that defies the laws of physics standing in as the life force behind all living things in the multiverse.

I mean, she might accelerate the Sun's evolution until it reaches the white dwarf stage, then move it to accrete material from another star or merge with another white dwarf, triggering a type 1a supernova. It'd never happen in the real world and also be completely overkill (the red giant stage would be enough to wipe out life on Earth), but for a powerful-enough magical pony who wants to send a message, it's not completely off the table.

@JP
The Sun has been outputting energy at the rate of about 73 tsar bombas for the last 4.5 billion years and has enough juice to do so for another 5 billion. It doesn't need to go supernova.


Also supernova's yield is pretty much "if one happened in place of the Sun, Earth would get erased after 8 minutes needed for the light to reach it pass".

I miss the show so much
IIRC our Sun is not massive enough to go supernova (based on our current understanding of astrophysics), so I'd say the Tsar Bomba is more dangerous.

(Though, Tia can move the Sun, so all it takes is a slight nudge in the wrong way and Earth's orbit goes wonky and we'll get pushed out of it and then we'll freeze to death in the depths of the deep space. Unless she keeps moving the star with Earth, in which case the solar system gets destroyed anyway but at least we'll stay warm. So, maybe Tia.)
