Science vs

Digimon Tri

In the fourth Digimon Adventure Tri movie (Loss), Taichi and Yamato are attacked by a MetalSeadramon. There may be some metaphysical shenanigans involved, but they appear to remain underwater without harm for almost two minutes.

However, an average untrained person usually can only hold their breath for about 30 seconds to a minute, and brain damage due to oxygen deprivation sets in after about 3 minutes. Harry Houdini, with training, was able to hold his breath for 3.5 minutes. The current record without inhaling pure oxygen prior to diving is nearly 12 minutes, with intensive training.
