Both [[TheComicallySerious Tenya Iida]] and his older brother [[HumbleHero Tensei]] have this this, thanks to Quirks that give them literal engines; Tenya's are on his legs, while Tensei's are on his elbows.
** Gran Torino's "Jet" Quirk makes him able to propel himself at high speeds. In enclosed spaces, he can dart all across the room and overwhelm enemies with quick and powerful attacks.
** All Might and his protégé Izuku Midoriya both display Super Speed as well; while their Quirk One for All mainly bestows SuperStrength, it increases power
in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''.more ways than one, as it also gives the user super speed and the ability to leap huge distances InASingleBound.

* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck gained this power in one episode due to a device Negaduck invented, but unfortunately, he also found that RapidAging came with it. He was somehow able to become younger again by running ''backwards'' [[ItMakesAsMuchSenseInContext (yeah, that... could work)]] and then used the power to research and develop an antidote within the span of a few seconds (and still had time to get behind Negaduck and clock him).

* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', this factor of Rainbow Dash is explored more, especially as she comes to master her Sonic Rainboom to the point of being able to perform micro ones. Her [[BadFuture Dark World]] incarnation is even faster, and also has a SuperMode from her Element of Chaos called Ender Dash that can move fast enough to FlashStep and [[spoiler:in its purified state]] is able to reach escape velocity. Twilight's Halflight Noon form also has this, as she created it explicitly to fight Ender Dash during the Duel of Tears.
* In ''Fanfic/EquestiaAcrossTheMultiverse'':
** Rainbow Dash naturally has this, which is highlighted in "Lighting the Darkness" where most of the population are {{Muggles}} and her SuperSpeed is even more above average than normal, and a match for one of Yomi's Four Kings, Fubo, who was previously the fastest thing in existence. Unfortunately for Fubo, he relied on his speed too much and thus [[UnskilledButStrong was a bit lacking in technique.]]
** Speed World has this trope as their entire ''thing'', with each species or tribe having their own comparable speed spell. Princess Rainbow Dash is even ''faster'' than normal Rainbow Dash due to being an Alicorn, and Princess Firefly and Princess Wind Whistler are the fastest known beings in the Alliance. Worth noting, Alicorns in this universe are literally Franchise/TheFlash type speedsters complete with a connection to the Speed Force.

** The [[Series/TheFlash2014 2014 adaptation]] has Barry counter the Weather Wizard who is creating a hurricane by running around it in the opposite direction. The hurricane collapses back on the Wizard.
*** Barry starts every episode with "My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive." It's telling that, in one episode, after that intro, Barry says, "My name is Barry Allen, and I'm ''not'' the fastest man alive." In the previous episode, he realizes this after coming face-to-face with the Reverse Flash, who turns out to be ''much'' faster than Barry ([[spoiler:this turns out to be due to, in part, the Reverse Flash continually charging himself with a futuristic battery, since his own connection to the Speed Force has been cut off over a decade ago]]).
*** In the second season, Barry meets Jay Garrick, the Flash from [[AlternateUniverse Earth-2]]. Unfortunately, Jay lost his connection to the Speed Force after passing through the portal, but he has invaluable experience and takes over the mentor role. His new enemy is Jay's EvilCounterpart Zoom, who is obsessed with killing every other speedster in every world to be the only one. There is also a metahuman known as "the Turtle", who is able to slow down everyone around him, which seems like he's super-fast to anyone looking at him. He even manages to sap Barry's power. King Shark can swim at speeds comparable to Barry's running speed, able to keep up with Barry and nearly kill him while Barry is [[WalkOnWater running on water]]. While King Shark is not nearly as fast on land, his speed is still very impressive compared to ordinary humans.
*** A drug called Velocity (with variations like 6, 7, 8, and 9) can grant super speed and improve existing super speed, but it has dangerous side effects. Eliza Harmon took it and became the supervillainess Trajectory. She seemed to be faster than Barry, but her body eventually crumbles to dust from overusing her speed. [[spoiler:This drug is also the reason why Zoom is so much faster than Barry.]]
*** In the Flashpoint timeline, Kid Flash got his speed while drag racing. His car, filled with an experimental fuel mix, was struck by lightning. After the explosion, he spent 9 months in a coma, after which he woke up and found he could move really fast.
*** Barry also eventually learns to travel through time by entering the Speed Force and visualizing his destination. However, this can result in [[ClockRoaches Time Wraiths]] hunting him down. [[spoiler:Zoom also teaches him the trick of creating a time remnant by using time travel to make a duplicate version of the speedster. One of them usually ends up dying anyway. However, this practice is even more likely to attract Time Wraiths due to the resulting paradox]].
*** In Season 3, Barry encounters the Rival, who is Kid Flash's EvilCounterpart, at first, and then his own. He appears to be just slightly slower than Barry and can't do some of the things Barry can (e.g. running in mid-air inside a vortex to stop it), although he has been shown spamming lightning bolts. Later, [[spoiler: Jesse finally becomes Jesse Quick. In the previous season, a depowered Barry recreated the accident that gave him his powers, and Jesse and Wally were also caught in the "lightning." Jesse's speed finally manifests as a car is about to hit her on the street, and she becomes a heroine after a bumpy start. Wally is upset that he hasn't developed superspeed and he nearly gets hurt trying to replicate Jesse's "event". Barry and Joe are wary of Wally potentially becoming a metahuman]]. Eventually, Barry encounters [[spoiler:an alien-looking speedster, whose speed is unmatched and can only be seen by Barry. He calls himself Savitar, the god of speed]].
*** Wally eventually ''does'' develop powers, of course. It's unclear if they would have kicked in on their own, but the villain Dr. Alchemy, able to give characters abilities they had in other timelines, jump-started him (he was rescued before he could suffer any mental tampering.) It turns out that he is ''faster'' than Barry was on ''his'' first day as a metahuman. However, he gets the CurbStompBattle treatment from Savitar, just like everyone else.
*** And now Earth-19's Accelerated Man joins the growing list of speedsters in the Arrowverse with his purple lightning, bringing the total count to 9: Flash (Barry), Reverse-Flash, Zoom, Velocity, Flash (Jay), Jesse Quick, Kid Flash, Savitar ([[spoiler:Barry's time remnant from the future in a fancy suit]]), Accelerated Man. H.R. also mentions his world's Flash. It's never made clear if the Flash of Earth-19 is the same person as the Accelerated Man or a different speedster.

* While super speed is fairly common in ''VisualNovel/DiesIrae'', none can compare to shear absurdity of Wolfgang Schreiber. While fast enough as is, tearing up pavement and creating violent wind surges from speed alone, he is able to summon a bike that allows him to go even faster. And if that wasn't enough, upon using his [[LimitBreak Beri’ah]] "Niflheimr Fenriswolf", he is made so that he is ''always'' faster than his opponent no matter what. Even if he is just sitting still in this state, space itself will start to warp and expand so that everyone else seemingly moves backwards. Even attempting to slow him down with drain abilities or slowing down time will only have a limited effect since, again, he will always be faster. The only real way to hit him like this is to either use an attack that [[AlwaysAccurateAttack cannot be avoided at all]] or flat out [[TimeStandsStill freezing time itself]].
