That water isn't coming in nearly fast enough to be a tidal wave. Probably just a flood. A really fast flood. Davidy22[talk] 13:15, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
- Maybe Etymology-Man talks really really fast. 18.104.22.168 03:20, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
- Maybe Etymology-Man also has the power to slow incoming danger by sheer force of knowledge 22.214.171.124 08:57, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
- We need Etymology-Man in this discussion section to describe the term "Flash flood."
- Minor characters
Shouldn't etymology man be in the list of minor characters? E^ipi (talk) 12:24, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Another super-power Etymology-Man doesn't bother using to help anyone: he can break the fourth wall and crash dramatically through the panel frame! Nitpicking (talk) 12:54, 28 December 2021 (UTC)
- I disagree. That would be indicated by the comic-frame border being 'broken', which is something Randall has done in the past (or the 'paper' broken through in at least one memorable example). This just looks like an off-frame crash (into the space inhabited by the two tsunami victims, out of some structure he maybe did his Clark Kenting in or perhaps just through a wall/fence that was 'in the way').
- Whichever, it was from the direction of the incoming water, and whether his damage of some barrier (albeit the main inpact high above the ground) is useful or just lets the water flow in faster is a question we probably don't want the answer for... 126.96.36.199 13:45, 28 December 2021 (UTC)
