Millions of punches per second?
That seems way to high, even for a super-speedy stand like this. Source please. 22.214.171.124 08:18, September 1, 2013 (UTC)
I can't seem to find a source so far, but it seems as though this follows given Star Platinum's superluminal speeds, derived from it being faster than Silver Chariot which can intercept Hanged Man. We're going to low-ball this for a figure of 3*10^8 m/s, roughly the speed of light. Now, we're going to high-ball Star Platinum's arm length (and subsequently, punching range) to 3 m (assuming it isn't moving; 2 m may be more than enough. Normal human punching range should be around 1 m and Star Platinum is easily large human.). Now, let's assume that Star Platinum's fist travels 3 m twice per punch, once to the roughly center point of his body and once back, making that a round trip. So we have (3*10^8 m/s)/(3 m/punch * 2) = 5*10^7 punches/s = 50 million punches per second. For a figure of 1 million punches per second, Star Platinum would need a punch length of 150 m, which we clearly do not observe at any point in the manga. So Star Platinum can easily punch tens of millions of times per second given this low-ball figure; you're right about the figure being off, but the figure is in fact too low, not too high.

Ok so I noticed in abilities that Self Preservation is listed as an ability, I don't think that should be there, we've seen other stands have a similar need to preserve their users from self harm I.E Heavy Weather protecting weather report from killing himself multiple times, it's just the stands natural objective to protect the user not an ability Gotmulk56 (talk) 15:36, December 12, 2019 (UTC)
