* Tracer, the literal poster child of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', can zip in and around enemies in the blink of an eye using her Blink ability. She can even [[XMenDaysOfFuturePast put time in a bottle]] and rewind the clock to when she was at higher health using her recall ability. Although she's mostly ability-driven, that hasn't stopped her from becoming the most popular (and generally well-liked) offense.

Added DiffLines:

* Burter is hailed as "the fastest in the universe" by others in the Frieza Force, but his actual fighting speed is fairly average for his power level (be it still far above the universal average). His ''travel'' speed, however, is genuinely fast for a being of his power, and he is implied to be a genuinely faster flier than Captain Ginyu, at least.

** In ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInThe8thGrade'' Linda is as super-fast as ever but she hasn't learned yet how to stop herself from crashing into things.

* OlderThanFeudalism: According to Virgil, the Thracian Harpalyce (daughter of Harpalycus, king of the Amymnei) was capable of outrunning horses, the river Hebrus and the East Wind.

** As Virgil and Dante rise out of Hell, they witness an angel moving across the ocean so fast "its motion by no flight of wing is equalled."
** In ascending from Purgatory to Paradise (if Dante's experience is to be generalized) move faster than lightning out of anticipation to finally return home.

* Mario, Luigi, Toad and Yoshi of the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' series. Mario and Luigi can easily [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld run up walls]] and [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario outpace a soundwave]]. Luigi can even [[SuperMario64 run on water]]. Yoshi and Toad (especially the latter) are almost always ''even faster''. It's not clear exactly how fast they're supposed to be, though all of them can consistently run over twice as fast as Bullet Bills (which ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' says move at 145 km/h).

** Kara is consistently portrayed as faster than Superman (although nowhere as fast as Flash). In the Silver Age she could fly faster than light easily and even shatter time and dimensional barriers. Her power levels were reduced in the Post-Crisis universe, but she can still fly to the Sun and back within minutes.

* One of the recurring powerups in ''{{Metroid}}'' games is the Speed Booster, which allows Samus to run at supersonic speeds. While moving at super speed she can run through certain walls (as well as any enemies unfortunate enough to be on the way), but stopping, turning or bumping into something makes her lose the speed. She can however temporarily store the energy generated by running and release it to fly very fast in a straight line, or run again if there is a slope she can run on. Many puzzles depend on clever utilization of this ability.
** In ''Metroid Fusion,'' there is the Serris, a SeaMonster that can move faster than sound. Samus recieves a version of the Speed Booster by absorbing its X.

May show up as a {{Handwave}} or [[JustifiedTrope Justification]] for ArtisticLicenseMartialArts -- after all, a "highly telegraphed" roundhouse is a lot less easy to counter when your opponent's foot meets your face in the time it takes for you to blink.
