* The "Sports Boost" "[=SportBoost=]" tonic in ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock|1}}'' increases your speed.speed. In ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock|1}}'' you got it for it's secondary effects (25%-''50%'' faster swing speed for the [[MagikarpPower wrench]]) instead of it's primary effects (2.22%-4.44% faster movement speed). It was nerfed in ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock2}}'' as it didn't let you swing any faster and the movement boost wasn't very noticeable.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' and its sequel has shoes called...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin well what the trope name is.]] Sprint Shoes boosts your units' Move stat by 1. The upgraded version, the Ninja Tabi, lets you move up 2 extra spaces. In [[FinalFantasyTacticsA2 A2]], there is a clan ability that boosts Move for the party by 1 that can be upgraded to increase it by 2 and it does stack with the Sprint Shoes/Ninja Tabi. The Green Mage in ''A2'' can learn Leap, which temporarily boosts a unit's Move by 1 and also their jump height. Since the highest base stat for Move is 5 (Adelle's unique Heritor class; for everything else it's 3 or 4), combine this with a Ninja Tabi, the clan ability ability Move +2, AND using the Green Mage's Leap ability, you can almost cover half the map by moving 10 spaces!

* ''EverQuest'' has the Journeyman's Boots, which allow the player to apply a run speed buff when equipped - very handy in a game where mounts are prohibitively expensive. The quest to get the boots is an ''utter'' pain in the ass, however, meaning the players who risk insanity trying to complete it usually do so for the bragging rights, rather than the reward itself. The [[FanNickname Jboots]] return in EQ2 as an iconic item reward for what is one of the most entertaining heritage quests in the game.

An item, ability, or spell that enables the player character to move faster, possibly to the point of SuperSpeed. It can be anything from a device that allows the player to walk at an accelerated pace to an animal that can be ridden around--though, of course, some incarnations [[ImprobableAccessoryEffect make more sense than others]]. This can be one of the most useful items in the game due to the fact that most game characters run at the pace of an [[ArtisticLicenseBiology arthritic slug]], and certainly no players are going to complain at being given the ability to complete the latest FetchQuest or ChainOfDeals in a quicker fashion. Occasionally, it may be key to beating a TimedMission that would otherwise be impossible.

* ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}} and the Pirate's Curse'' has Risky Boots', err... Boots, which lets Shantae run fast enough to run against {{Inconveniently Placed Conveyor Belt}}s, dash over lava, and sprint up icy slopes. Very useful when trying to unlock the SpeedRun related wallpapers.
