[[SuperSpeedReading Super Speed Readers]] are characters who are seen turning the pages of books at improbable speeds, presumably retaining all of the information they're flipping through, as a way of demonstrating their intelligence. While it ''is'' possible for the audience to learn a character has this ability in some other way, in visual media, it's fairly common for a scene to be present where we actually get to ''see'' this feat performed, most likely because [[RuleOfCool occasions where high IQ can actually be translated into to exciting visuals are few and far between]].
