* In ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'', Shinji Ikari has the full Kryptonian package, including super-speed. When Mad Hatter attempts to assassinate the UN Council by having security guards fire assault rifles into the room, Shinji manages to catch ALL of the bullets, also grabbing the guns for good measure.
* In ''Fanfic/TheLastDaughter'', Taylor is endowed with Kryptonian powers. She uses her super-speed to disguise herself by vibrating her face to create a blur and fly from America to Paris in just a few minutes.
* In ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'' Asuka -who goes by ComicBook/PowerGirl and later ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}- proves that she truly is faster than a speeding bullet by going from flying above the city, through all of the Geofront's armor layers, and into the Geofront to save Kaji in the time it takes for the bullet to get from Chiron's gun to him.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'' makes quickly clear how incredibly fast is Supergirl:
-->In the space of a second, Linda stripped out of her pajamas, found the place where a costume compressed to the size of a pea was located, expanded it, put it on, ran a special comb through her hair to change the shade from brunette to blonde and style it a different way, located the place where she’d stashed a pair of flat items that rapidly unfolded to boots, put them on, checked herself in the mirror, loaded her cape pouch with such things as she might need if she needed them (such as her i.d. card, some American money, and her own choice of lipstick in a friction-proof tube), opened the window, tripped the inside lock, exited, and shut the window before the lock had time to catch on nothingness instead of a metal catch, and, moving too fast for the unaided eye to see her, flew into the sky.

** The original game has Bullet, a clear {{Expy}} of TheFlash. In his backstory clip, we find out that Dwight Arrow was an Air Force pilot nicknamed "The Fastest Man in the Air" whose fighter was hit by [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum Energy X]] above North Vietnam. His [=superspeed=] immediately manifests itself when he dodges Vietcong bullets and manages to run all the way to the States on the ocean. He can use his ability to create small hurricanes and FlashStep. Despite the presence of flying characters, he is still faster than them at his ''normal running speed''.

* Super Speed is a powerup in many games in the ''BackyardSports'' series. Several characters allegedly have this naturally, like Pete Wheeler and Luanne Lui.

* Koro-sensei of ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' can fly at Mach 20. Among his [[SuperpowerLottery many other abilities]] (NighInvulnerability, RubberMan, HealingFactor etc.), it's his most common for avoiding his students' daily attempts on his life, and he just as often uses it to get shaved ice from the North Pole or Chinese food from China during his lunch break.



* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has a couple instances where this is PlayedForLaughs: Catching [[LovableCoward North Italy]] when he's running away, terrified, from someone is pretty much impossible, alluding to a TruthInTelevision fact that the in World War II the Italian army was known to be much faster ''retreating'' than they were advancing. [[ChivalrousPervert France]] has something of this as well, when he's fleeing retribution for [[HandsomeLech his antics]].



* Super Speed is a staple in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', having been used by several characters.
** [[BareFistedMonk Taijutsu users]] are beyond worthy of a mention, making up for their lack of ninjutsu powers with the sheer power of their bodies. Some (Rock Lee and Might Guy) are able move so fast even the Uchidha [[MagicEye Sharingan]] either has trouble keeping up or does keep track but simply fails to dodge (as Sasuke found out).
** Rock Lee is naturally super fast even at his slowest and [[PowerLimiter wearing weights all time]], but when he's serious Lee can easily move faster than sound and with fourth gate opened in Chuin Exams he's just a [[http://i5.mangareader.net/naruto/85/naruto-1781.jpg moving blur]] against Gaara whose protective [[DishingOutDirt sand]] is just too slow to react.
*** But this ehanced speed comes [[DeadlyUpgrade a dear price]], the more he opens the gates he opens the damage happens to his body.
** In Part II, Kakashi makes hand-signs that are now ''too fast to see'' (which leaves you wondering [[FridgeLogic what his bones are doing in the meantime]]).
** The main character has speed that resembles the speed of a series teleporter. This is a recent development, as for most of the series he had merely average speed (for a ninja). The first time he used this new ability, literal LightningBruiser Killer Bee mistook it for the Flying Thunder God Jutsu, the teleportation technique used by [[spoiler:Naruto's late father]]. At [[FlashStep his highest speed]], a long trail of chakra forms behind him, and he is able to deflect attacks ''with the resulting shockwave alone.''
** Credit where due, although high speed movement isn't anything necessarily special in the world of Naruto; The Fourth Hokage is cited as the fastest shinobi the world had ever seen - his title being the Yellow Flash says it all. [[spoiler: He gets to live up to his reputation in various flashbacks, and during the final battles when he gets resurrected. Even The Second Hokage, the one who ''invented'' the technique The Fourth made extensive use of conceded that he was faster. Not even including the jutsu that allowed for his distinct style of TeleportSpam combat, his natural speed was ''just that fast.'']]
** The only one who surpasses Minato and Naruto in speed is Might Guy who opens the 8th Gate and utterly decimates BigBad Madara whose is absolutely [[BloodKnight delighted]] at the display especially when Guy [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11112/111120859/4252857-09.jpg moves so ridiculously fast]] he literally warps space around him. Guy would've won too if his bones and organs didn't disintegrate after using the power, luckily Naruto [[HealingHands saves]] Guy though at the [[WheelchairWoobie cost]] of his legs.

* One of the stock powers for Heretic Gods in ''LightNovel/{{Campione}}''. At
his title being the Yellow Flash says it all. [[spoiler: He gets to live up top speed Sun Wukong was effectively invisible due to his reputation in various flashbacks, speed, but also lacked the fine control to do anything more than strike once while passing his opponent. Functionally, godspeed is not actually them moving faster but [[RealityWarper warping space to reduce the distance they travel between two points]].
** Godou also possesses super speed from his Raptor authority. At full speed he lacks any form of fine control
and so any attack is likely to miss. If used sparingly, it can act as a type of FlashStep and increase his ability to dodge.
* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', several characters can move at incredible speeds, especially Saints. Mark Space was once talking to a little girl named Patricia Birdway. He noticed an assassination attempt, darted out and stopped it, then returned to his original position ''without Patricia seeing him move''.
* In ''Anime/{{Charlotte}}'', Joujirou is capable of accelerating to ludicrous speed, though for some reason he calls it "teleportation". He's a somewhat comedic example of what happens when you lack the RequiredSecondaryPowers. He can't stop or change direction once he gets going--all he can do is aim where he wants to go and shoot himself at the target--so every use of it ends with him violently crashing into something. He uses it rather recklessly in attempts at MundaneUtility such as cutting in line at the cafeteria, and often gives himself AmusingInjuries, though he compensated by buffing up his body for extra toughness and wearing armor concealed under his school uniform.
* In ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', [[spoiler:Clare]] first develops this power
during the final battles when he gets resurrected. Even The Second Hokage, fight against Rigardo by applying her [[SuperpoweredEvilSide demonic transformation]] to just her legs instead of her whole body; before then, any sort of controlled "awakening", as it is referred to in the one who ''invented'' the technique The Fourth made extensive use of conceded that he series, was faster. Not even including the jutsu that allowed for unheard of.

his distinct style of TeleportSpam combat, his natural speed was ''just that fast.'']]

* Vampires in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' are all faster than humans.
**The fastest thus far was minor antagonist Luke Valentine, who was complimented on it by none else than super-vampire and series SociopathicHero Alucard.
** Seras Victoria was already had vampire enhanced movment, [[spoiler: by after drinking Pip's blood and becoming a true "Draculina". Seras becomes a tornado of death and she grinds Zorin Blitz's head on arcoss wall so fast, it ends up as just a scrap of skin in her hand]].

* Vampires Played with in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' are all the second season of ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack''. A Contractor who briefly appears has Super Speed, yes, but he lacks nearly ''all'' the RequiredSecondaryPowers. He complains that his muscles will be sore the next day when he has to FlashStep ''twice'', he can't change direction fast enough to avoid crashing face-first into a tree, and it turns out that when you're moving fast enough to dodge bullets, [[spoiler:everything else is moving towards you [[InertiaIsACruelMistress just as fast]]. So when April makes it rain...]]
* This is a standard power of higher leveled Franchise/{{Digimon}}, who generally showcase it by performing a FlashStep. Notable examples include the Royal Knights in Anime/DigimonFrontier , who fly to the moon in minutes, [=MagnaGarurumon=], who is stated to be able to move and attack and

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** Co-protagonist Fate has this when she's using her [[FragileSpeedster (Shin) Sonic Form]]. By ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', Fate can move so fast that a baddie with the ability to ''TeleportSpam'' has trouble keeping up with her. And she is not even using her SuperMode.
** Her adopted son Erio is also incredibly fast. He's the only person to ever get a direct hit on her while she was in Sonic Form.
** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' has the Combat {{Cyborg}} Tre, who can move at Super Speed at all times thanks to her Ride Impulse Inherent Skill. She was able to match the speed of Fate's Shin Sonic Form, though not its power.
** Chantez Arpinion from ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' has SuperSpeed as her skill. A fan translation group translated her skill even by that name.
** There are some spells that allow the user to move with SuperSpeed. ''Flash Move'', ''Blitz Action'', ''Blitz Rush'', ''Sonic Move'', etc.
* This is a default power of all Saints in Manga/{{Saint Seiya}}. Even the Bronze Saints are making a few Mach numbers, the Silvers are an order of magnitude or more faster, and the Gold Saints are explicitly said to move at lightspeed (and then have battles in which one Gold will say "[[YouFailPhysicsForever your lightspeed is slower than mine!]]")
* Straight Cougar from ''Anime/{{Scryed}}''. His alter power (named "Radical Good Speed") enables him to transform objects (including his own body) to reach their fullest speed capacity. He also both drives and talks very quickly. ("I love it! Two more seconds to live...")

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'':
** Co-protagonist Fate has Sena to a "human degree" from time to time. While never running at "super speed," he's able to run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds (exceptional even for an ''NFL'' player, and this kid's still in high school), when she's using her [[FragileSpeedster (Shin) Sonic Form]]. By ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', Fate can move so fast that a baddie with the ability to ''TeleportSpam'' has trouble keeping up with her. And she average players runs at 5 seconds or so (which is not even using her SuperMode.
** Her adopted son Erio is also incredibly fast.
a huge difference). He's still shown in the only person to ever get a direct hit on her while she was in Sonic Form.
** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' has
manga zipping around people, and the Combat {{Cyborg}} Tre, who can move Devil Bat Ghost allows him to run through people by changing the pace of his footsteps but keeping the same speed, leaving the foe unable to predict where he will turn.
*** Sena also parodies this in non-football situation. During a football (soccer) kick-off match, due to his inability to kick, he instead ran around the ball
at Super Speed at all times thanks high speeds to her Ride Impulse Inherent Skill. She was able confuse the goalie... but he got tired, had to catch his breath, and the goal didn't make it in. In another chapter, during a sumo match against Monta, he rushed around the speed ring, but lost when his foot just barely stepped out of Fate's Shin Sonic Form, the ring.
** Panther is even better. While he's no Flash he was one of the few people on Earth who could run 40-yard dash in '''4.1''' seconds. That wasn't really impossible - Deion Sanders did a 4.1 without stretching,
though not its power.to this day it's the fastest 40 ever recorded '''at the NFL Combine'''.

** Chantez Arpinion from ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' has SuperSpeed as her skill. A fan translation group translated her skill even by that name.

This is a default the secondary power of all Saints in Manga/{{Saint Seiya}}. Even the Bronze Saints are making a few Mach numbers, the Silvers are an order Wrath[[spoiler:/Bradley]]. The combination of magnitude or more faster, and the Gold Saints are explicitly said to move at lightspeed (and then have battles in [[DodgeTheBullet bullet-dodging speed]] with his ''primary'' power of [[spoiler:the Ultimate Eye, which one Gold will say "[[YouFailPhysicsForever your lightspeed is slower than mine!]]")
* Straight Cougar from ''Anime/{{Scryed}}''. His alter

* [[NaughtyNuns Misora's]] artifact in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' are a [[SprintShoes pair of shoes]] that grant her super speed. She uses them to bravely, bravely run away whenever danger rears its ugly head.
** [[spoiler:In a recent chapter, the lead Negi learned how to use his BlackMagic to fuse with his own [[ShockAndAwe lighting magic]] to become a being of lightning speed. [[MeteorMove He pin-balled his enemy though the air]] with it]].
*** [[spoiler:Interestingly, there are two variants of Negi's Super Speed above, with the lesser version not having SuperReflexes as a RequiredSecondaryPower. It even shows why that would suck in the middle of RapidFireFisticuffs.]]
** Essentially all of the top-tier fighters in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' can use this at least since they entered Mundus Magicus, to the point of some battles resembling the fights in ''Manga/DragonBall'' in its prime.
** As far as normal humans are considered, [[BewareTheNiceOnes Ookochi Akira]] is able to use this with no apparent training whatsoever. She was able to catch the above mentioned Misora, while using said artifact, with next to no effort and did it so fast and completely unprecedented that even her three strongest classmates were greatly surprised.
* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, Ash's Pikachu, Cyndaquil, and Turtwig were trained to take advantage of their speed in battle. [[spoiler:Turtwig subverts it however when it evolves into Grotle and has to adjust to a MightyGlacier battle style.]] In the games, Speed is the most important stat. Ninjask and Jolteon would be pretty useless without that blinding speed to Baton Pass. According to Gary, Digletts can pull their head underground at the speed of light.
* This is the secondary power of Wrath[[spoiler:/Bradley]] from the ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' manga. The combination of [[DodgeTheBullet bullet-dodging speed]] with his ''primary'' power of [[spoiler:the Ultimate Eye, which lets him always see the best move to make in combat]] makes him a terror to behold.

So when April makes it rain...]]
* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', as with SuperStrength, anyone who practices the [[SupernaturalMartialArts right style]] of martial arts gets this ability. Ranma Saotome himself, in the first volume/second episode, manages to jab at Kunō's forehead fast enough to leave bruises in the pattern of insulting kanji without this being seen or even being felt by Kunō. Later on, he kicks Kunō about a dozen times so fast that, to an observer, he seems to just be sweeping his leg up in front of him. A subsequent story has Ranma hitting [[HandsomeLech Mikado Sanzen'in]] five hundred-plus times in the span of a few seconds. And he does all of these feats ''before'' undergoing the [[RapidFireFisticuffs Kachu Tenshin Amaguriken]] [[IAmNotShazam training]]. This training makes him even more ungodly fast, to the point where he has been known to punch water at villains with enough force to cause serious hurt. Whereas before he was kicking Kunō a dozen times in the blink of the eye, he later learns to punch HUNDREDS of times fast enough so that no-one (including Ryōga, who is being punched), notices more than one blow.
* In ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', [[spoiler:Clare]] first develops this power during the fight against Rigardo by applying her [[SuperpoweredEvilSide demonic transformation]] to just her legs instead of her whole body; before then, any sort of controlled "awakening", as it is referred to in the series, was unheard of.

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', Kenshin himself is trained in battou-jutsu (i.e., quick draw with a blade, effectively) techniques, and his speed is called "God-Speed" InUniverse. Unfortunately for him, he meets an opponent who's even faster: Soujirou--TheDragon in the Kyoto Arc--who can move faster ''than the human eye can even see'' and is capable of LeParkour to the point of being able to run on ''ceilings'', and whose DissonantSerenity makes it difficult for Kenshin to read his body language.
* In ''Anime/KiddyGrade'', main character Éclair has this ability, as does minor character Foxy Fox.

** [[WordOfGod According to Oda]] the three fastest crew members are [[DemBones Brook]], [[IronChef Sanji]] and [[RubberMan Luffy]] who would best the other crewmates in a 50 meter race.
*** Brook's attacks even goes right by opponents without them noticing his presence or even the very pain they received in the first place. It's only until he's sword sheathes that the enemies "know they've been cut", this is fitting considering Brook is a "speed type" swordsmen in contrast to [[MasterSwordsmen Zoro]] and [[LongDeadBadass Ryuma]] who are seen as "power types". The main reason for Brook's great speed fact as a skeleton Brook has no organs or skin weighting him down, he bypasses his Devil Fruit [[SuperDrowningSkills weakness]] by running so fast he [[WalkOnWater can travel across water]].
*** Sanji, the very first thing we see him do is a FlashStep against the Krieg Pirates and he only goes faster since then. Sanji can out-run and dodge bullets (2,500 feet per second) and machine gun fire even against the Soru users who flash-step all over the place he could keep up and [[http://i.imgur.com/UnPec7c.png surpass]] in the case of Kalifa. After two years of training (two straight years of running), Sanji can go so fast he able to [[NotQuiteFlight sudo-fly]] (Sky Walk) and can create sonic booms behind him, Sanji was also fast enough to dodge [[ColdSniper Katakuri]] who has [[CombatClairvoyance future sight]].
*** Luffy is normally fast in his own right but after activating [[SuperForm Gear Second]] he can flash step everywhere he wants and his attacks become [[http://i.imgur.com/KQANlSY.png super sonic]]. Though this comes at cost of [[DeadlyUpgrade wearing out]] his body, unlike other speed characters who can use their power indefinitely. Luffy's Gear 4 puts his attack speed at a even further level, despite his body becoming hulky and a little slow, Luffy's kong gun operates like a rail gun and propels his punches at super speed.
** [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Chopper]] is directly behind Luffy in speed and with "walk point" can go extremely fast. This is fitting since real life Reindeer can run 60 to 80 kilometers per hour.
** To be fair to the swordsmen, Zoro is no slouch at short distances, he can travel in 4.5 milliseconds and successfully avoided [[http://i.imgur.com/tn4ttkj.png Kuma high speed pressure bubbles]].

The reason why Zoro is not considered a "fast fighter" is because as Oda explained, his complete [[NoSenseOfDirection lack of orientation]], which guaranties he won't be winning races any time soon.
** The Marines have their own technique known as "Soru" that involves kicking the ground AT LEAST TEN TIMES IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE to move vast distances in short periods, easily surpassing sonic speeds.
** Cavendish's split personality Hakuba is insanely fast, even by ''One Piece'' standards. In the Coliseum battle he took out (almost) all the remaining fighters in the blink of an eye; the only fighter who wasn't knocked out was Rebecca, who managed to avoid the brunt of the attack thanks to her own super speed and reflexes.
** [[LightIsNotGood Admiral Kizaru]] is the fastest character in the franchise, no ifs ands or buts. After he ate the [[FrickinLaserBeams Glimmer Glimmer]] Devil Fruit Kizaru can turn his body in light and go at the speed of it which is 299,792,458 meters per second and in a show which is mostly about ground-based melee fighting is [[http://orig01.deviantart.net/9b28/f/2013/048/8/d/kizaru_by_sonny92kh-d5vapt4.gif extremely]] unfair.

** Godou also possesses super speed from his Raptor authority. At full speed he lacks any form of fine control and so any attack is likely to miss. If used sparingly, it can act as a type of FlashStep and increase his ability to dodge.

* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', several characters can move at incredible speeds, especially Saints. Mark Space was once talking to a little girl named Patricia Birdway.

* This is a standard power of higher leveled Franchise/{{Digimon}}, who generally showcase it by performing a FlashStep. Notable examples include the Royal Knights in Anime/DigimonFrontier , who fly to the moon in minutes, [=MagnaGarurumon=], who is stated to be able to move and attack and faster than light speeds, and [=UlforceVeedramon=] who is the fastest Royal Knight, a group filled with super speeding flying bricks.
* Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie , naturally. Not only is Sonic his usual high speed self, but Tails and Knuckles are shown to be super fast to a degree as well. And when Metal Sonic comes on the scene , he quickly proves himself to be even faster than Sonic, and is able to go from the planet's surface to space and vice versa in seconds.
* Similarly in Anime/SonicX. Most of the anthropomorphs are shown to possess this to a degree, albeit a much lesser one than Sonic. Shadow is once again portrayed as being equal to him, until he takes his limiters off at least, in which case he becomes much faster still. This show arguably has one of Sonic's fastest quantifiable moments of super speed, showing Sonic as being literally fast enough to outrun a 'friggin' lightning bolt'.
* In ''Anime/{{Charlotte}}'', Joujirou is capable of accelerating to ludicrous speed, though for some reason he calls it "teleportation". He's a somewhat comedic example of what happens when you lack the RequiredSecondaryPowers. He can't stop or change direction once he gets going--all he can do is aim where he wants to go and shoot himself at the target--so every use of it ends with him violently crashing into something. He uses it rather recklessly in attempts at MundaneUtility such as cutting in line at the cafeteria, and often gives himself AmusingInjuries, though he compensated by buffing up his body for extra toughness and wearing armor concealed under his school uniform.
* In ''Anime/ConcreteRevolutioChoujinGensou'', Hyouma Yoshimura is this. This may have contributed to a nickname (and possibly superhero alias) "Jaguar" - it doesn't explain his other ability (stopping time) though.
* In ''Literature/{{Gate}}'', the demigoddess Rory Mercury can easily run faster than a car and dodge or deflect bullets.

* Super Speed is a staple in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', having been used by several characters.
** [[BareFistedMonk Taijutsu users]] are beyond worthy of a mention, making up for their lack of ninjutsu powers with the sheer power of their bodies. Some (Rock Lee and Might Guy) are able move so fast even the Uchidha [[MagicEye Sharingan]] either has trouble keeping up or does keep track but simply fails to dodge (as Sasuke found out).
** Rock Lee is naturally super fast even at his slowest and [[PowerLimiter wearing weights all time]], but when he's serious Lee can easily move faster than sound and with fourth gate opened in Chuin Exams he's just a [[http://i5.mangareader.net/naruto/85/naruto-1781.jpg moving blur]] against Gaara whose protective [[DishingOutDirt sand]] is just too slow to react.
*** But this ehanced speed comes [[DeadlyUpgrade a dear price]], the more he opens the gates he opens the damage happens to his body.
** In Part II, Kakashi makes hand-signs that are now ''too fast to see'' (which leaves you wondering [[FridgeLogic what his bones are doing in the meantime]]).
** The main character has speed that resembles the speed of a series teleporter. This is a recent development, as for most of the series he had merely average speed (for a ninja). The first time he used this new ability, literal LightningBruiser Killer Bee mistook it for the Flying Thunder God Jutsu, the teleportation technique used by [[spoiler:Naruto's late father]]. At [[FlashStep his highest speed]], a long trail of chakra forms behind him, and he is able to deflect attacks ''with the resulting shockwave alone.''
** Credit where due, although high speed movement isn't anything necessarily special in the world of Naruto; The Fourth Hokage is cited as the fastest shinobi the world had ever seen - his title being the Yellow Flash says it all. [[spoiler: He gets to live up to his reputation in various flashbacks, and during the final battles when he gets resurrected. Even The Second Hokage, the one who ''invented'' the technique The Fourth made extensive use of conceded that he was faster. Not even including the jutsu that allowed for his distinct style of TeleportSpam combat, his natural speed was ''just that fast.'']]
** The only one who surpasses Minato and Naruto in speed is Might Guy who opens the 8th Gate and utterly decimates BigBad Madara whose is absolutely [[BloodKnight delighted]] at the display especially when Guy [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11112/111120859/4252857-09.jpg moves so ridiculously fast]] he literally warps space around him.

Ranma Saotome himself, in the first volume/second episode, manages to jab at Kunō's forehead fast enough to leave bruises in World War II the Italian army was known to be much faster ''retreating'' than they were advancing. [[ChivalrousPervert France]] has something pattern of insulting kanji without this as well, when he's fleeing retribution for being seen or even being felt by Kunō.

A subsequent story has Ranma hitting [[HandsomeLech Mikado Sanzen'in]] five hundred-plus times in the span of a few seconds. And he does all of these feats ''before'' undergoing the [[RapidFireFisticuffs Kachu Tenshin Amaguriken]] [[IAmNotShazam training]]. This training makes him even more ungodly fast, to the point where he has been known to punch water at villains with enough force to cause serious hurt. Whereas before he was kicking Kunō a dozen times in the blink of the eye, he later learns to punch HUNDREDS of times fast enough so that no-one (including Ryōga, who is being punched), notices more than one blow.
* In ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'', while [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] are renowned for their SuperStrength, [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]] like Ginei are known for their speed. Not that vampires themselves aren't pretty damn quick.

Unfortunately for him, he meets an opponent who's even faster: Soujirou--TheDragon in the Kyoto Arc--who can move faster ''than the human eye can even see'' and is capable of LeParkour to the point of being able to run on ''ceilings'', and whose DissonantSerenity makes it difficult for Kenshin to read his body language.
* This is a default power of all Saints in ''Manga/SaintSeiya''. Even the Bronze Saints are making a few Mach numbers, the Silvers are an order of magnitude or more faster, and the Gold Saints are explicitly said to move at lightspeed (and then have battles in which one Gold will say "[[YouFailPhysicsForever your lightspeed is slower than mine!]]")

And when Metal Sonic comes on the scene , he quickly proves himself to be even faster than Sonic, and is able to go from the planet's surface to space and vice versa in seconds.
* Similarly in ''Anime/SonicX''. Most of the anthropomorphs are shown to possess this to a degree, albeit a much lesser one than Sonic. Shadow is once again portrayed as being equal to him, until he takes his limiters off at least, in which case he becomes much faster still. This show arguably has one of Sonic's fastest quantifiable moments of super speed, showing Sonic as being literally fast enough to outrun a 'friggin' lightning bolt'.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'':
** Black Star has a "Speed Star" technique that temporarily emulates super speed. Friction with the ground is actually a problem for him; the first time he uses it on-screen, the fresh mud he was running through caused him to slip during a sharp turn.
** Mosquito's [[BishounenLine form from 400 years ago]] is so fast he was able to tear Free in half and cut off one of Death the Kid's arms in 1 second. He claims his form from 200 years ago to have been his fastest, though Free and Kid handled him considerably better.

* One of the theories as to how [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos the Slender Man]] moves around. In ''WebVideo/TribeTwelve'', he is shown moving from the end of a hallway [[JumpScare to right up close]] [[FlashStep in an instant (and without moving his legs)]]. This might also explain his apparent OffscreenTeleportation.

* In ''Film/ManOfSteel'', while dashing away from gunfire from aircraft. Faora uses the FlashStep several times.

** Superman and the Flash both have this power, as do Zod and his soldiers once they reach Earth.

* In ''Anime/DragonBall'' super human-speed has been apparent since the start of the franchise, one particular scene where Krillin and Master Roshi aka Jackie Chun move "too fast" at the first TournamentArc and audience become confused and annoyed. Leading to them being forced to recreate the high speed clash in fake slow motion in one of the funniest scenes in the series and still impressive compared to the later sagas. Since Krillin and Roshi had a whole conversation, arugument and rock paper scissors match in apparently nano-seconds.
** Much of the fight scenes in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' feature sequences of "colliding blurs" where the characters fight at Super Speed. Sometimes, it is taken to the level where all we can see are random shock waves in midair, as the camera jerks around to track them.

** Dyspo from Universe 11 takes this UpToEleven: he moves so fast that even the other superpowered characters call it "superhuman". He can move so quickly he can attack in the instant before an opponent activates their skill, so quickly that [[spoiler:Hit can't activate his Time Skip ability and Goku can't use Instant Transmission before he hits them]]. Only Goku and Hit are (barely) able to keep up with him at their full power.

** Polnareff's Stand Silver Chariot is much faster when it's armor is off, to the point that it can appear as if there are six to seven of them at once. Too bad he never does that past his first fight...
