* Barry Allen of ''Series/TheFlash2014'' can use his SuperSpeed to do this (as shown in the episode "Fast Lane"), though it comes with a side of RealityEnsues: Since he didn't take the time to memorize the information, he can only hold onto it for a short time before he has to do it again.

** [[LegacyCharacter The various Flashes]] can do this using their super speed. They don't usually ''retain'' the information long, but it's usually enough for their purposes.

** The Flash is capable of doing this, as a manifestation of his super speed. While he doesn't usually ''retain'' the information long, it's usually enough for his purposes.

* Inverted in R.A. Lafferty's short story ''Primary Education of the Camiroi'', which features an alien race who regard those who read rapidly as intellectually inferior on the grounds that they don't take the time to absorb and memorise every detail.

* ''VideoGame/Persona5'' has a downplayed example of this: the fourth and final book you can buy at Jinbochou Book Town is a guide to speed reading. Reading this book allows you to read books that would normally take multiple sittings in only one sitting, saving you time. Of course, by the time you get the option to buy this guide, [[BraggingRightsReward you've already had to read 3 books that take 3 sittings each.]] It could still be useful if there are still books to read from the other bookstores or the library that take 2 sittings to finish, however.

** Bart Allen (Impulse/Kid Flash) was established as different from other speedsters when it was revealed he can speed read AND retain everything he read (other speedsters can speedread but forget about the facts they researched soon). Subverted in that Kid Flash is still a hyperkinetic attention-deficit teenager and not exactly a genius.
