From the direct damage spells with a damage dealing capability of 300 + (power × 75), it is the most destructive spell for a single creature stack. From the spells that can cause collateral damage, Armageddon is the most destructive.

Implosion also has the highest slope value of 75, which means that for every point power increases Implosion does 75 points more damage. In comparison, Armageddon has 50, Chain Lightning has 40 and Magic Arrow has 10.

The highest possible damage for Implosion casted by a player is 22711 points of damage. This requires Expert Earth Magic (or Rockland, or Magic plains), Expert Sorcery, Sorcery as hero specialty (gives 5% bonus to Sorcery per level), maximum Power (99), maximum hero level (108) and Orb of Silt. 14986 (c. 66%) points are the bonus from Sorcery skill. Therefore this is the highest possible damage to deal to one unit by one spell by a player. It is, however, possible for Faerie Dragon to cast spells of technically infinite strength. For highest possible damage to deal to multiple units at once by one spell, see Armageddon.
