Well, I'll take "over six miles in less than five minutes" to mean 7 miles in 4 minutes. 7 miles is 36,960 feet (5,280 ft. * 7). 4 minutes is 240 seconds (60 sec. * 4).

36,960 ft. / 240 sec. = 154 ft/s (225.87 mi/h)

To cover 6 miles in less than a minute (assume 30 sec.), then that's 1,056 ft/s (1,548.8 mi/h; Mach 0.94)

How strong is this monkey to do such throw?

The ship looks to be about ... 20x to 30/40x the volume of earth. 20x for the first two and 30/40x for the last page where the whole ship expanded or something.
So 5.972e24kg *20 = 1.1944e26kg
30=1.7916e26kg
40=2.3888e26kg
Momentums:
20=19,222e26 kg*m/s
30=28,833e26 kg*m/s
40=38,444e26 kg*m/s

Hyperion feat:
5.972e24kg
momentum = 5.972e24kg*223520m/s=13,348.61e26
So based off momentum alone the ship would require more overall force to stop
-
But, what matters also is how long it took to stop each projectile, speeding planet/planetoid in this case. Which ever stopped the object faster would exert more overall force.

I don't know what explosion you speak of.

I don't think it ever shows how long either took. Although, if I had to guess, I'd say Hyperion's did. IIRC it took a few more panels(granted panels aren't necessarily the best reference points of time).
-
It was the explosion I asked about earlier. You said it was an extinction level event, but that you needed more background on it because it was exaggerated. Here it is again:

That's what happened before, during, and after this: http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/sca ... lk_002.jpg

And as always, thanks for the calc!

how powerful would something have to be to reduce half a continent to dust?

“Systems developed by the Sacred Ancestor, at that. If my memory serves, it has the power to reduce half a continent to dust with the single touch of a button. But no, it should prove quite interesting to expose the lowly humans to the strange shapes that the results of the original genetic research took.”

. “Vampire Hunter D, Vol. 13: Twin-Shadowed Knight, Pts. 1 & 2.”

it doesn't really say how it would do it but im guessing it would be explosive

Bit off Topic ammo but I cannot enter your "nosgoth" respect thread without getting a virus warning that tells me to "go back" to safety. I dont know whats there thats unique to other threads but just thought I would mention it.

The calc goes under the assumption that the fighters have to move from outside of the field of vision from the left to the inside the field of vision, back outside the field of vision to the right. However, the fighters can easily slip in and slip out of vision back form where they entered, so the distance could be from (if the ~40 meters they used is correct) almost 80 meters traveled (by going from the left to the right but back to the left) or as little as 1 meter (left to in the field of vision 1 meter and back out again).
The calc goes out of its way to find a solid number from indeterminate descriptions. There are a number of factors which are not accounted for and some assumptions which are loosely made or simply wrong. The 10 meters thing, for example, is the distance between the fighters, not the fighters and the observer. The 130 degrees for field of vision comes from no where. Perhaps from: http://www.uh.edu/engines/epi2581.htm which tells us our field of vision for both eyes is around 180 degrees. But this accounts for our total field of vision and doesn't take into account the total angle for our focused field of vision (the field of vision for what the eyes can focus on and see clearly). The calc assumes that the eye can detect things outside the focused field just as well as the inside which may or may not be the case.
Overall, I would not use that method of calcing as it can greatly exaggerate speeds, requires too much assumptions, and is not very reliable, at least the way it was done. I don't think the feat, in general, is very calcable, but if I were to give an estimate, it would be from ~500mph and up, maybe edging in and out of supersonic speeds because of the mention of shockwaves. The ripping of iron/steel is very common with hurricane force winds which are greater than 70mph.

Ah, ok. Well thanks anyway.
Just another question though. How strong would they have to be to cause the damage that they did?

Also is it possible for you to calc how fast this is:
Beginning at 11:19 and ending at around 11:30

I lost my post..
So to simply:
@CH1C4N0444
Your first 6 urls dont work.
Based on the that last scan you gave, if the spherical edges are that of a planet then it would be an extinction level event.

@wingedlion
No values for strength strength, but 120kg moving at 260 m/s is about 32 kilojoules of energy for striking strength. For strength strength, they would be above Captain America.
-
Kingdom Hearts, the distance to the door when he leaps is about 110-130 feet (~120 ft) and is done in about 1.5 seconds so that is ~23 m/s. How he phases through doors is another question XD.

Crap, uhm, how bout now?

That last one is the most relevant, The other ones are just to show the in between, and the first one's to show immediately beforehand.

Wait, leap? Door? Sorry if i confused you, but i was talking about when he slashed the first set of buildings. He cut them up so fast the building only began to fall apart after he was done slashing them. How fast would you have to be to do that?
