A new Digimon Profile has gone up on Digimon Web!
Digimon Profile #23 is a report on speedy Digimon! And with it we get some social themed artwork of a relatively modern and quick Digimon
Agumon Hakase goes over a number of quick Digimon in various categories...
The introduction from Agumon Hakase...
The New Year is just around the corner... and we're in the middle of December. A few more sleeps and it'll be the New Year... time sure flies, huh? Almost as fast as some of the Digimon we're here to talk about... So let's take a look at some Digimon that are fast. I'm going to introduce them according to the speed given in the reference book, and also according to the speed that the Digimon thesmelves move. The higher the number, the faster the speed.
Examples of High Speed Digimon
Kilometers per hour (kph) designates a unit of speed. The average human can walk 4 kph, while the speed limit for automobiles is typically 60 kph (at least on the streets in Japan.)
Penmon- Slides across ice on its belly at 60kph or faster.
Prairiemon- Digs holes to move through the ground at 100kph.
Diatrymon- With its strong legs it can run at speeds over 200kph.
Examples of Mach Speed Digimon
The speed at which sound travels through the air is 'the speed of sound' and is synonymous with 'mach'. The speed of sound is about 340 meters per second, or about 1225kph. When a flying object exceeds the speed of sound, shockwaves are generated in the surrounding areas and in the flying object itself. The average body can't withstand such speeds.
Centalmon- Blows gas at extremely high pressure from the ducts on its back, reaching speeds close to the speed of sound.
SaberLeomon- With instantaneous mach power it can easily dodge ordinary attacks.
Aquilamon- Flies through the skies at Mach speed to seek out distant foes.
Shoutmon + Jet Sparrow- This “Mach speed-Cruiser Mode” boasts tremendous propulsion capabilities.
Parrotmon- Uses a special move to move at Mach speed and generate sound waves.
Jazarichmon- Flies at Mach speed, and is considered among the best aerial combatants of the Digital World.
HerculesKabuterimon- Zooms around the Digital World at supersonic speeds.
MetalGreymon X (Virus)- Equipped with an energy booster that exceeds the speed of sound.
Wingdramon- Capable of flying at speeds exceeding Mach 20 (about 24,500 kph).
Examples of Lightspeed Digimon
The speed at which light moves is called the "speed of light. At about 300,000 kilometers per second, or about 1.08 billion kph, the earth can be traversed seven times in one second. Originally it was theorized that unlimited energy was needed to achieve light speed, but the existence of data offers endless possibilities.
Rapidmon (Perfect)- Brings down foes with precise movements close to lightspeed.
Linkmon- Accelerates to 98% of lightspeed.
Pegasmon X- Capable of super-acceleration to the point of reaching the speed of light.
Surfimon- Has a special move that accelerates it to lightspeed.
DeadlyAxemon- Has a special move that it uses to dive between opponents at lightspeed, slicing them up.
Metallicdramon- Flies through the upper reaches of the Digital World’s atmosphere at the speed of light.
MagnaGarurumon- Reaches lightspeed after detaching its chest armor.
Agumon Hakase finishes with... Digimon traveling at the speed of light are too fast to imagine... In the first place, traveling at the speed of light requires an amount of energy that is impossible for matter.... I'd better not upset them...
Alternate version of the art from Digimon Web on Twitter.
The version from Twitter is the same, but has very minor different framing on the edges and is a bit larger, along with being compressed.
