The Icarus IV comet in 2266

A comet is a type of celestial body that is composed of rock and ice, and is usually found to be orbiting a star. If a comet orbits too close to a star, then the increased heat causes the comet's more volatile components to sublimate, shedding its mass, and creating a coma and/or "tail".

Sometime after the events put in motion by Quinn in the 20th century (for his friend Maury Ginsberg, D.D.S.), the controversial Q is banished inside one; until the 24th century. (VOY episode: "Death Wish")

In June 2151, the Earth starship Enterprise discovered the largest comet that had yet been discovered by Humans, and was named Archer's Comet after Enterprise captain, Jonathan Archer. (ENT episode: "Breaking the Ice"; TNG novel: A Time to Sow; reference book: Star Charts)

In late 2266, the area near the Icarus IV comet was the focus of a battle between the ChR Gal Gath'thong and the USS Enterprise. (TOS episode: "Balance of Terror"; TOS novel: The Return; CCG)

In 2373, the USS Enterprise-E detected a class-2 comet while conducting a patrol of the Romulan Neutral Zone. (TNG movie: First Contact)

Throughout the seven seasons of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine", a comet flies past at the start of the opening credits.

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Comet in Final Fantasy IX.

Comet (コメット, Kometto) is a recurring spell in the Final Fantasy series. It is essentially a lesser version of Meteor, or a replacement for it when Meteor is not available. Like Meteor, it does random damage.

Contents

Appearances

Final Fantasy

Comet appears in the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary versions as a special attack of Atomos. It does random, non-elemental damage to one party member.

Final Fantasy IV

Palom and Porom can cast Comet as a Twincast spell. Using the Stardust Rod or the Stardust item can also cast Comet in battle. Comet is essentially a weaker version of Meteor, and inflicts unblockable non-elemental damage to all enemies. In the Nintendo DS version any two people with the Twincast augment equipped can cast Comet at random.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

An item called "Stardust" is found within the meteors core in Edwards tale which has the same effects as Comet.

Final Fantasy V

Comet is a Level 4 Time Magic spell that can be bought for 3000 Gil at Regole, Castle of Bal, Castle Surgate, and Quelb, and costs 7 MP to cast. It inflicts random damage to a single enemy.

Final Fantasy VII

Comet and Comet2 are spells learned from the Comet Magic Materia. Comet hits a single enemy for heavy damage, while Comet2 hits four random enemies for mediocre damage.

Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-

Comet and Cometeo are Magic Materia. They are not non-elemental like other versions of the spell in this series and are in an element of their own, whereby enemies can be weak against, resistant to, or be able to absorb damage inflicted by comets. An enemy's comet attribute is not related to the non-elemental attribute.

  • MP Cost: N/A
  • Target Type: Full Screen
  • Materia Generation System: Dark Purple
  • Level 1 - Default - Base Damage: N/A

Final Fantasy IX

Comet is a non-elemental spell that can be cast by Vivi. It inflicts damage to one target. Damage inflicted is randomized, inflicting either a small or a great amount of damage. It also has a tendency to miss. Comet can be learned for 55 AP from the Cypress Pile, and costs 16 MP to cast. It has a 67% accuracy rate.

Only the Yan and Gimme Cat enemies have the ability to cast Comet against the party.

Final Fantasy XI

Comet is not a spell in Final Fantasy XI to players; however, it is a spell available only to Absolute Virtue and Promathia.

Carbuncle has a similar Blood Pact called Meteorite, however. It inflicts Light-based magical damage on a single target.

Final Fantasy XII

Exodus uses Comet as his default attack, which does random damage up to Exodus' maximum HP. The rare mark Trickster can cast its own version called Choco-Comet, which hits four targets for approximately 1,000 damage each.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Comet attacks all enemies in a selected area, and only Ashe can learn this spell.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Onion Knight's Comet is an HP attack that fires a barrage of small fireballs at enemies.

GTA

From Grand Theft Wiki

Comet
A Comet in GTA Vice City
(Rear quarter view).
Manufacturer: Pfister (GTA IV)
Vehicle type: Civilian car
Body style: 2-door sports car
Capacity: 2 (driver and passenger)
Appearance(s): GTA Vice City
GTA San Andreas
GTA Vice City Stories
GTA IV
GTA Chinatown Wars

The Comet, manufactured by Pfister, is a sports car that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

Contents

Description

Design and frequency of appearance

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

The Comet is based on the Porsche 911; it best resembles the 911 Cabriolet from 1976 or the early 1980s, however, like newer 911 models, it has an all-wheel-drive configuration. The car features a targa top similar to the Targa 911s. The fastback profile the Comet sported in GTA Vice City was dropped until GTA IV. GTA III era renditions of the Comet are front-engined, unlike the real Porsche 911, which is famously rear-engined; this led to speculation that the Comet was inspired by a Datsun 240Z, as did the inset headlamps, which not seen on any Porsche model. The headlamps may also have been inspired by the 1966-1969 Alfa Romeo Spider.

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

GTA IV's Comet, manufactured by Pfister, is available only in hardtop coupe form. It now largely resembles a modernized Porsche 911 Turbo, while retaining the scooped headlights of previous Comets. Unlike its predecessors, GTA IV's Comet is very rarely encountered on the streets, and is more common in Party Mode where two parked Comets can be seen and driven. Like the real 911 Turbo, the GTA IV Comet is rear-engined.

For GTA Chinatown, two variants of the Comet are available, a regular Comet being similar to GTA IV's Comet, as well as a highly modified racing variant, featuring a purple-and-red paintjob, a bodykit, and white neon underglows that turns on at night.

Performance

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

The Comet's acceleration, speed, braking, and handling are all among the best in the game. In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, many of the Comet's properties are similar to those of the Stinger, although traction is inferior. Both vehicles have open tops, and the speed and acceleration are around the same. In the GTA III era, the Comet's top-down convertible nature allows the protagonist to jump over the driver's-side door, facilitating a more rapid take-off.

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

The GTA IV rendition of the Comet is the fastest car in the game, reaching a top speed of 347 km/h (216 mph) (closely followed by the Coquette, which reaches 344 km/h (214 mph). It has a powerful rear mounted, twin-turbocharged flat-6, and all-wheel drive; acceleration from a standstill is superior, due to the car's immaculate traction. Unfortunately, fast cornering results in massive understeer, and has the potential for lift-off oversteer.

The Comet is slightly faster than the Infernus, but is not necessarily superior in multiplayer racing—the Comet is very light-weight, leading to the car being rammed offroad by the other vehicles, or being launched into the air off of hills and losing control. AI races present much less of a challenge—the player can easily outpace the competition very early on, thanks to the Comet's speed; once this is accomplished, the Comet's vulnerability to the other cars is rendered moot, and the player will have the luxury of slowing down to prevent being launched off of hills.

The conventional Comet in GTA Chinatown Wars retains its sporty performance, but is now ranked below higher end sports cars in the same, although its handling and braking are considerably good. The modified variant of the Comet is superior in speed, but is otherwise similar in performance to a standard Comet.

Modifications (GTA San Andreas)

  • Color
  • Wheels (ten types)
  • Nitro (all)
  • Hydraulics

Trivia

  • In some of the games in the series, Comets' radios default to a certain station. They are as follows:
  • When Niko tries the South Algonquin race from Brucie, a Comet may be a competitor, along with 4 station wagons. Beating the Comet is actually easier than it may seem, as the Comet tends to overshoot turns alot, but can easily outrun Niko on long straightaways, unless it crashes into traffic.

Locations

GTA Vice City
GTA San Andreas
GTA Vice City Stories
  • Parked under a building near Bryan Forbes' apartment.
  • Parked along the road that extends from Malibu Club to North Point Mall.
  • Inside an garage north of Lance's apartment.
  • Parked near an apartment at Vice Point, before the bridge leading to Prawn Island.
  • A uniquely-colored one is featured in the mission, 'So Long Schlong', and is easily obtained by killing Reni.
GTA IV
  • Obtained in the mission "No. 1" (given by Brucie Kibbutz), where the player must race others using a Comet from Brucie's friend, Stevie. After winning the race (and the mission), Brucie will allow the player to keep the Comet as a gratuity. This Comet has a unique rich yellow color, much brighter than a normal yellow Comet.
  • In Brucie's optional street races, sometimes an opponent or opponents will spawn in Comets, which can be stolen (although this will forfeit the race).
  • Spawned at the beginning of Bernie Crane's mission, "Hating the Haters". The player may park this Comet at a safehouse for safekeeping, and continue the mission in another car. In some cases the Comet is available in a very unusual dark grey color which appears red in certain angles, more specifically in the bumpers and skirts.
  • The Comet is one of the target cars to be stolen for Stevie in his series of side missions. The player can drive the target Comet to a safehouse and store it; another will respawn in the same place it was found, and this Comet can be delivered to Stevie. This Comet comes in a unique mauve color.
  • The Comet will be always seen during the mission "Payback". While the player is chasing the Pavanos, a Comet is seen getting into a car accident; the player can stop to take this car, although doing so is likely to lead to mission failure.
  • The Comet can be spawned by dialing (227)-555-0175 on the cell phone. This cheat code does not affect saved games.
The Lost and Damned
  • Although it has no spawning point, the Comet is driven in the Gang Wars.
The Ballad Of Gay Tony
  • The vehicle is now extensively available and can be found driving around the streets of Algonquin.
GTA Chinatown Wars
  • A modified Comet is parked on the northeast corner of a scrapyard block in East Island City, Dukes.
  • The modified Comet may be purchased at the Auto Merchant in BOABO, Broker.
