Well, they're capable of mangling humans with their mere grip (iirc they have to exercise great care not to do so...), and the twinkling twit's stopped a truck from flattening Bella (Oh how I wish it did.) with relative ease - actually, effortlessly. I think a punch from one has shattered a boulder too - so the figure from your calculation might be ridiculous, but it's evident that the vamps are likely stronger than even Dachande.
Predators can do that too. I mean a Veteran like Scarface was able to easily crush a human skull almost effortlessly, and he was even showcased to twist a human's spine and pull them apart like a rag doll in Concrete Jungle. Also, Predators have been shown to smash through brick walls and other barriers with their bare hands as mentioned numerous times in the films and by extension, the EU. And concerning the strength of Elders and Veteran Yautja alike, we've established that they are in the range of 10 - 16 tons, depending on if certain conditions are met.
Thank you for agreeing with me that the calculation in the above posted is ridiculous. For once, something we mutually agree on. But if we really want to know how strong Edward is, we would need a rough calculation for his weight. And the Twilight books don't provide that..
Could Edward be stronger? Possibly, but how strong we need to figure out.
Dachande has dealt with stronger adversaries in the past, such as when he had beaten a Queen Alien to death with his bare hands and survived the ordeal. And Queen's depending on their age, are very strong.. Empresses, being stronger.
And from what I understand, the Twi-vamps are insanely fast, usually faster than humans can see? And Edward's even faster than that - so odds are with his mental reading capability which has enabled him to deftly evade other vamps attacks, Dachande is never going to lay a hand on him, considering Dachande is not anywhere close to the average Twivamp's speed, more so even with Ed's.
I haven't read the books, so I am going off from the movies here but if the book versions are faster.. Then I have to thank God that this fight is a rumbles and not an official match. I mean it's bad enough that Robocop has that glaring black mark of losing to someone as pathetic in terms of character like Edward Cullen. But really, if the Twilight Vampires are THAT insanely fast... then someone like Spider-Man wouldn't be able to keep up for too long. I am really starting to think that Stephanie Meyer just gave these characters God-Mode powers.
We've seen Yautja being fast enough to keep up with some extremely fast and agile opponents. For example, Smiley Predator taking on those modified combat synthetics. Dachande was faster, killing twelve Aliens faster than Machiko Noguchi could aim her gun and fire at the creatures.
Here's an excerpt from Prey, showing cashing Dachande's speed and skill. And this feat was performed while he was injured with broken ribs as Prey mentions earlier that he was still healing from an injury.
Dachande heard the Hard Meat and spun around. He sprinted past the two ooman strangers toward the threat, staff forward. He was dimly aware that the small warrior was right behind. It shouted something at the other two. They came in a single-file stream, flowed from around a structure, ten, maybe twelve. Dachande leapt to greet them. Two arrived first, angled in from the sides. Dachande spun, swung completely around, cut them both through their midsections in one strike. He didn’t watch them hit the ground; there was no need—they were dead and all he need do was avoid the throes. He extended his ki’cti-pa and slashed through the throat of the next drone nearest, to his right. The drone’s death cry was garbled through its own thwei. A split second later, he jabbed the staff point through the jaws of another, twisted the sharp blade and dug a hole through the top of the skull. The weapon’s metal was proof against the Hard Meat’s thwei, but there was no time to hesitate and enjoy the kill—when you fought the ten thousand, you did so one at a time, but you also had to do so quickly—He thrust the spear’s butt back, hard, and knocked one behind him down, then turned and slashed its gut. Digest this, foolish creature! The ki’cti-pa blurred again, jammed backhand into yet another Hard Meat chest. The drone howled, fell, did not die but did not rise again. Acid pumped into the dark air, pooled, smoking. Dachande jumped forward, stabbed the throat of yet another, and then spun to meet the next. Death fell all around his feet as he and the Hard Meat danced.
Noguchi hurled herself after the warrior. Several of the bugs streamed from behind the shed and toward Broken Tusk. He stepped in to battle without hesitation. Too many of them, ten, twelve. She aimed at one of the bugs—and it was dead before she fired. She took aim again—and again, her target had fallen already. She took a step back, transfixed by the swift movements of the giant warrior. Here was no inexperienced novice; every step was measured, every strike timed and sure. Within the space of a few seconds, most of the bugs were down, dead or dying. She had enough training to recognize a Master when she saw one. This one’s skill had been gained in battle, against deadly enemies. Broken Tusk whirled and jabbed, crouched and slashed with precision and confidence. Never a misstep, never a hesitation. He was no dojo tiger, covered in padding and fighting for points. Wherever he had come from, they had a martial arts more complex and dangerous than any she’d ever seen. It was like a choreographed dance.
Now.. as for the speed of the Yautja, I know it has come into dispute but SmileyPredator's Yautja Feats thread posted more speed feats than I have ever posted in the past. You can find SmileyPredator's Yautja thread here: http://www.electricf...opic=26180&st=0
I even missed several feats from Cold War, a book I have and he's posted some feats which are from books I don't even have. Here are some excerpts from Cold War, some which I am sure you're familiar with.
