    first when escanor fought estarossa by the end it was a hour before noon the whole it being half an hour before noon was a mistranslation. its beeen stated that escanor in mythology had similar powers to gawain whose strength waxes and wanes with the sun; in the most common form of this motif, his might triples by noon, but fades as the sun sets.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gawain (though escanor from nnt name is ironic in that In Arthurian lore, Escanor is not exactly a nice guy to a point he can be considered an ignoble traitor. nanatsu no taizais Escanor, however, has aspects to his personality that would make him the most loyal and noble of the Sins, especially during nighttime. In fact, it'd be more appropriate to call him Gawain, a more nobler knight from Arthurian lore with similar time of day-based powers, than Escanor.

    Triple? Escanor is the living embodiment of the sun, his power is the origin of life. In the fights we have seen him so far all he has had to do to increase his power is will it. Whatever his power limit is at any given time, we have yet to see it. Since escanor has access to the power of the sun, I would think triple is nowhere near his limit. Escanor is effectively as powerful as he wills himself to be.

    So, 150K?

    There is no way for us to know how strong he is at noon. The sudden increase he got against Estarossa disproved the 5 pts per seconds theory.

    His will doesn't really matter, Merlin said he has a peak. Nakaba even said that if it's raining or cloudy he would be weaker. If he were able to decide of his power he would have been much stronger at Vaizel.

    I don't think his will has to do with much. His power is as dependent as can be.

    And tripled from where? 50,000?

    What? He doesn't will himself to get powerful. His power ups are because it gets closer to noon.

    It is not entirely dependent. Look at the sin vacation chapter for instance. We see escanor basically spending the entire day with the sins. He doesn't seem to need to go anywhere in case he looses control of his powers. And yet, after he fought galan or estarosa he did need to retreat so as to not harm others. So what is the difference? During the vacation events he was able to suppress his power to the minimum plausible. Against galan or estarosa he had to willingly let go and thus increase his PL. That is why his PL burst are so incredibly convenient in the story. That is why he melted a castle when the vampire king annoyed him. His PL does increase as the day goes on. But unless he unleashes his power willingly what we see is the minimum plausible. That is why he melted a castle against the measly vampire king but in turn did nothing even vaguely comparable to that against estarosa.

    Another thing worthy of note is that in both cases Sunshine went absolutely haywire it was specifically mentioned that his demeanor changed. The vacation day was a relaxed event. Both Estarossa and the Vampire king managed to piss Escanor off. I think this is when he loses control, the further the day advances, the more an emotional component plays a role for his transformation and power surge and it seems to become harder to control. This also seems to fit the narrative with what Night-Escanor thinks about himself during the day in events he loses it. After the Vampire saga he was embarrassed and mortified to admit to himself that he "lost control again". Even before his recruitment to the Sins he saw himself as a monster. Most certainly because he has this unwanted side to him. His power in itself is fine but when he gets worked up he becomes kinda self-absorbed and the prideful nature takes over. You see it also in how his glare changes.

    If the night version of his is powerless and feeble, it makes you wonder whether that is his true nature and the day version has both a "good" and a "bad" persona to itself. I don't think it is so much willingness or unwillingness that dictates his total power but how much he gives in to his emotion.
