* 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.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'', needing to go through an entire inventory of a massive treasury to find the one thing that is still missing quickly, Puss employs the DangerousForbiddenTechnique of Speed Reading to do so.

* Sylvester Dodd of Series/{{Scorpion}} possesses this ability. One episode revolved around his reading ''100 pages'' worth of classified information in the scant few minutes he had. Later that same episode, he reads about 30 pages worth of information ''in the time it took for it to rapidly flash across the screen''.

For instance, when he had to read Amy's favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice, so that he could mock it, he appears to have finished it by the time he comes home from work the next day. One time he was bored on a day off and decided to learn Finnish, and by the time Penny drops in he seems to be halfway through the instruction book.
