** "The Return of Harmony" reveals that while Fluttershy is a poor flier most of the time, when she is riled up enough, she can catch up to Rainbow Dash, even while dragging a hot air balloon behind her.

* This is Sasha's power in ''Literature/SuperPowereds''. She's not even close to the Flash's level, being able to move at a couple hundred miles per hour at most. Other limitations include inertia (she has to appreciably slow down to change direction) and poor aim (her perception is sped up along with her, but only to the same rate as a normal person running, so hitting things at superspeed is still difficult with any precision). Her body's endurance is strong enough to handle accelerating to such speeds and survive the air resistance, as well as punching things at such speeds. Still, her first battle at the college is against a girl, who can turn her skin into steel and who waits until Sasha has already committed herself to a superspeed punch before hardening it. Sasha's hand is shattered from the blow (luckily, there are a number of Supers with HealingHands standing by). During the class's nature trip, she opts to get there on her own two feet. According to her, road trips are a slow-ass nightmare. She ends up being barely more than a blur to Roy, who's speeding down the highway on his bike. Knowing that there's only one speedster in his class, he mutters "Bitch" and resolves to try to catch up to her, already knowing it's futile.

The same limitations don't apply to elemental-based speedsters, an extremely rare kind. Their powers are based on manipulating a particular element to the point of being able to take on that element's characteristics. In the case of one professor, electricity. The professor is able to actually turn into a bolt of lightning and move extremely fast, taking down a roomful of Supers before they have a chance to blink. Elemental-based speedsters like him don't need to slow down before attacking, as they're not made of flesh and bone at that moment. Even when in human form, they can move faster than the eye can see.

* Downplayed in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. The fastest class, the Scout, is capable of just over 22 Mph at top speed. This is quite possible to reach in real life, but the Scout is still beyond normal for being able to run at that speed consistently without being exhausted.

* 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.

* The upcoming Russian film ''Film/{{Guardians}}'' has this as Khan's power. A leaked video shows him facing off against several [=SUVs=] and pickup trucks full of heavily-armed {{Mook}}s. He takes out his curved {{Absurdly Sharp Blade}}s and then speeds up (this is demonstrated by the butterfly fluttering next to him slowing down to a crawl). His first dash [[DiagonalCut cleaves an SUV neatly in two]], and the pieces (including that of the guy who was sitting in the middle) collapse a few seconds later. He then proceeds to slaughter everyone else (although some are actually killed by UnfriendlyFire from a Mook too focused on hitting the fast-moving target to see where he's aiming his minigun). The short CurbStompBattle ends without a scratch on Khan and everyone else dead.
