Giga. Hyper. Max. Mega. Omega. Power. Super. Ultra. Which of these is the weakest, and which is the strongest?

Uncanny. I was just thinking about the trio of Super, Ultra and Hyper a few hours ago. Even thought of making a poll...

Something like that. (Didn't see why it needed to be spoilered, but as you can see I was too knock-kneed and cowardly to buck convention.)

Max has to be greater than or equal to everything else or it is not max. :/

Pretty much the same, only I could slide Max in at 1,2, or 3 and be fine with it.

Max sounds boring so I ignored it. Where were cooler words like Tera, Uber, Unlimited or Critical?

[spoiler=Let's look at the roots:]
Power = ability
Super = Hyper = over/above
Mega = large
Giga = giant
Ultra = last/furthest
Omega = large/last
Max = largest

Ultra/Omega/Max are very similar in being at the end, but I feel Ultra has been demoted through overuse, Omega is the final move learned, while Max is the end cap.
[/spoiler]

So I'll go with Power < Super < Hyper < Mega < Giga < Ultra < Omega < Max

Power and Max sound lame and not really prefixes, so they're at the bottom.
Super and Hyper are Latin and Greek for the same thing, but Greek is better.
Mega and Giga are both Greek words for largeness, and Giga is bigger.
Ultra is a Latin superlative, so it's biggest.
And Omega is the last, the final, the ultimate--and it's Greek. Clearly the most hardcore.
