What's the most damage a single attack could do (theoretically) with maxed out stats (level 9,999, relevant attack stat(s) at 9,999,999 points), beneficial item innocents, a max-level skill ect? I know anything that does even 1 billion damage will kill any enemy (normally) but I'm curious as to how high the numbers will go.

Is this something that can/has been calculated? I know I've seen the damage indicator go into the billions at least, so I also wonder if the max damage is capped at say 9,999,999,999 in one hit or if it's limited by the actual amount of damage feasable due to normal game mechanics.

I think once you hit billions of points of damage, it's essentially a moot point; everything should be dying in a single hit. That said, I'd sort of be curious just how ludicrous Disgaea can get. It's always been out being absolutely crazy. – Frank Mar 8 '12 at 14:31
@fbueckert yeah, the max for HP is below 1 billion (or it was in D3) but I'm curious as to how much damage you can actually do – Ben Brocka Mar 8 '12 at 14:43

This video seems to suggest the damage cap is 184.5 Quadrillilon:

Holy crap, sweet find! I never thought it went quite that high... – Ben Brocka Mar 8 '12 at 15:13
And thus, you see just how ludicrous Nippon Ichi is when it comes to Disgaea. I can almost imagine some coder gleefully implementing a crazy high value, and seeing just how badly a PS3 blows up on it. – Frank Mar 8 '12 at 15:25
yes, nippon ichi always pushed the envelope with big numbers, which is awesome. You dont' see many games that legitimately require bigints – l I Mar 8 '12 at 22:40
