* RapidFireFisticuffs: A fun and useful application of SuperSpeed powers. The best example probably being in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' where Wally slams all the Brainiac out of Lex Luthor.

*** DCAU!Flash tried that in the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode "I Am Legion". Good enough to not die from a high altitude fall, but maneuverability is less than stellar. Wally also used a similar method once in the regular comics to save a flight attendant who had -- again -- fallen from a plane. Interestingly, this story also indirectly pointed out ''why'' Flashes can't really use their abilities to fly like you'd expect - the RequiredSecondaryPowers that prevents friction from affecting them means that they just can't get enough "purchase" on the air to do much more than slow themselves down.

* BroughtDownToNormal: In his final Golden Age adventure, Jay Garrick was BroughtDownToNormal by Dr. Clariss, a man who had discovered how the Flash got his speed, and had not only worked out how to gain speed himself, but also to reverse the process for Jay, who became very slow as a result. Thankfully Jay was able to restore his speed by story's end and defeat the villain.

Added DiffLines:

* FastestThingAlive:
** All of the various Flashes have this reputation--especially Wally West, who is in later stories credited as having far surpassed all of his predecessors and any other speedster in the known Comicbook/{{DC Universe}}.
** Technically speaking, Wally's nemesis Hunter Zolomon, (aka "Zoom") is faster than ''him'', since Hunter [[TimeStandsStill manipulates time itself]] and thus can move himself or others through time on a scale even Wally can't keep up with.
** The limit's of the Black Flash's speed isn't really known, but the Black Flash is one aspect of [[TheGrimReaper Death]], and it's stated that he'll eventually catch every speedster.

* EvilOrphanageLady: Miss Pritchard's orphanage in a ''Max Mercury'' story set in 1910s New York. Mrs P hates children, but gets money from the city to raise them. She ''also'' gets a cut from child-hating toymaker Archimedes Schott, for supplying him with cheap labour. And then she takes the kids' wages as well. When Schott tells her he's going to burn down his factory, because Max has pressurised him into giving the kids more rights, she decides to send them to work that day anyway. (And yes, Archimedes looks a lot like his presumed descendent, Winslow.)

* SidekickGraduationsStick: Wally ''was'' the most successful example. His run as the Flash lasted for over 20 years, he was a founding member of more than half-a-dozen teams, and a regular guest star in many other series. (Fun Flash Fact: Wally's series, ''Flash'' Vol. 2, ran to issue 247. Barry's run in ''Flash'' Vol. 1 was from 105 to 350, only '''246''' issues.) After Flashpoint and The Comicbook/{{New 52}}, however, Wally no longer exists. His graduation stuck so hard they had to ''reboot the universe'' to un-stick it.
