** This has been a staple of the games, ever since the Pegasus Boots were introduced in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', reappearing in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap''.

* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'', Lanky Kong can learn an ability that allows him to use a magic barrel that turns his standard Orangstand move (walking upside down with his hands) into Orangsprint (to walking upside down with his hands ''very quickly'').



* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' gains the ability to dash in his first game (it's built-in thereafter). Various other speed items are found throughout the franchise; one game even has an item that makes you ''climb ladders'' faster.

** The Speed Booster is one of the most powerful examples. Once up to full speed Samus becomes virtually invincible, destroying just about everything in her path as she plows through at breakneck speed. The player can also harness this energy, a technique referred to as Shinespark, to send Samus rocketing through the air in a straight line, again invincible and destroying everything in her path until she hits a solid wall. ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' gives the latter ability a tradeoff by draining Samus's life in the process, but later games remove this restriction. However, in ''Super Metroid'', the shine spark ability has an effect of creating two damaging echoes perpendicular to Samus upon crashing that deal a lot of damage. Later installments don't feature this, although ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'' lets the player spark in ball form.

* ''Videogame/SecretAgent'' has the shoes powerup, which allows you to run at lightning speed and, more importantly, jump for great distances. It's always critical to completing the level, so if it runs out before you do the important things you need to do with it, it's level restart time.
** There is also an inversion - a rare "powerup" that looks like a 1/2 fraction and slows you down 50% for a while.

* In ''Videogame/DoomTheRoguelike'', pretty much every armor and boots have a movespeed modifier, which can be positive or negative. Particularly useful are a set of phaseshift armor and boots, and antigrav boots. Stacking armor, boots, Hellrunner trait and the berserk effect can bring movespeed to ~800% of the basic one.

* ''VideoGame/{{Gothic}}'' has the running jump, which propels you faster than a straight-up run. Interestingly, once you learn the Acrobatics skill, it becomes ''harder'' to pull off, since your standing jump becomes easier to trigger accidentally and has a longer recovery time.
** ''Gothic 3'' also has sprint mode.

* ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' features the party member Lakilester, whose purpose outside of battle is to carry Mario on a cloud over hazards. However, you actually move much faster this way than walking. There is also the speedy spin badge, which allows you to twirl around the map at a much faster pace than even Lakilester would allow.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has elixirs and food you can make that will boost Link's movement speed for a few minutes. The [[spoiler: Dark Link]] gear set can also boost Link's speed if the whole set is worn, but it only works during nighttime hours. Even the NPC who made it has no idea how it even came out like that.

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.
