If you don't know what a Whackagi is, please click here. My problem is simple; I know how dangerous Whackagi are, but not how dangerous they are to what they hit, how much damage they can do with a single blow.
Here's what I know:
Strength-A Whackagi has the same strength as a gorilla, but...
Square-cube law-Oddly enough, as far as I understand the square-cube law as it applies to this scenario, a shrunk (artificially size reduced( human would be proportionately stronger; so a 50x smaller human would be 50x stronger. Whackagi are 4 feet 10 inches tall, the maximum height to qualify for dwarfism, and have the strength of a gorilla proportional to their size (which is about that of a dwarfen sumo wrestler). I don't know how impactful that will be, but I assume it will be a noticeable increase.
Physiology-A Whackagi's body has a cartilaginous skeleton, with strength akin to steel (and proportional flexibility, ie. the flexibility you'd expect from steel-hard cartilage), and its muscles are like steel cables. Its flesh is formed of what appears to (and most likely is some form of) blue, vulcanized rubber. This rubber is so tough that Whackagi are entirely impervious to medieval weaponry (like broadswords, warhammers, battleaxes, and war picks) inside and out. I'm not sure how effectively Whackagi can impart force with a body of vulcanized rubber (albeit extremely tough vulcanized rubber).
Thus, my question is How Strong Is A Whackagi?
Specifications For Best Answer:
The best answer will account for the Square-Cube Law to determine how strong a Whackagi is really. You see, Whackagi are creatures of magic, so they have the raw (base) strength of a silverback gorilla, multiplied by the difference in size between a dwarf and a gorilla. My question is, how much stronger will they be?
The best answer will also account for the composition and design of a Whackagi's body, to determine how well Whackagi can impart force (push, lift, throw or break objects), how high they can jump, and whether it really is feasible for a Whackagi to use their six-foot-long tongue to grab and pull in an adult male. Please assume the strength of a Whackagi is uniformly spread throughout the body.
Also note that Whackagis have two simple cylinders for legs (like an elephant or sauropod) and that their two arms and tail are stalks, each tipped with a ball of rubber (which I call "flails") that are about the same thickness and length as a tomahawk handle.
