* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Okay, so he is touted as the PluckyComicRelief of the founding members, he's a BigEater who stuffs his face often due to RequiredSecondaryPowers, he's a ChivalrousPervert who rarely (if ever) has any luck with the ladies, frequently says the wrong thing at just the wrong time, and is capable of [[FragileSpeedster being taken down in one hit]]. Digested all that? Well, here's what this same guy is capable of doing [[LetsGetDangerous when he quits fooling around]]: rewiring Grodd's MindControl helmet so it'll fry the ape's brain (though he got better), holding his own against Justice Lord Superman and throwing him hard and fast enough to momentarily stun him on impact, tricking Justice Lord Batman into releasing him from his restraints, taking out an entire space-station of armed mooks when sufficiently aggravated, leading a successful infiltration of Apokolips, and [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomping]] Brainiac!Luthor all by himself... and this is all without taking his day-job into consideration.

* SuperStrength: Because of the sheer speed and momentum his body generated, Flash possessed enhanced strength. Since his body was naturally protected from most of the effects of his speed, the ultra-fast punches and movements of Wally's limbs could produce devastating impacts that could stun or injure otherwise stronger or more powerful beings such as Superman or Brainiac. He could also throw objects at extremely high speeds, as he was able to hold off the likes of Justice Lord Superman by throwing rocks.

* BadassBeard: He sports one in ''Unlimited''. [[WordOfGod James Tucker]] on Stewart's Unlimited goatee:
-->"It represents an ending to the Green Lantern / Hawkgirl relationship. Usually when people break up, they get a makeover. We didn't want to do a major [redesign], but we could do tweaks here and there, and that helps to give it an evolved feeling, like things have changed, characters have moved on."



* BecauseDestinySaysSo: In "Shadow of the Hawk", John believes that he and Shayera are destined to be together because they have a son in the future. [[ArmorPiercingQuestion Batman informs him that if he really believed that, he wouldn't be with Vixen.]] See ScrewDestiny below.

* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Vibrating through an object at high enough super-speed causes that object to ''explode''; hence, he doesn't use it very often. (It's also a MythologyGag, where in the comics he'd cause things to explode by vibrating through them.)

to:

* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Vibrating DangerousForbiddenTechnique
** In "Divided We Fall": Flash took on Braniac/Luthor alone. In desperation, he pushed his powers to their limit, running as fast as he could around the world numerous times and tapping into the Speed Force in order to separate and defeat the two villains. As a result, Flash was very nearly pulled into the Speed Force, but was rescued by the teamwork of his teammates. The incident left Flash with the disturbing possibility that traveling that fast again might mean he would never come back.
** In "The Great Brain Robbery": [[FreakyFridayFlip Luthor-as-Flash]] displays several abilities deriving from speed that Flash had never used. Among them: Threatening to use his fingers as a gun to vibrate them
through someone's head, using vibrations to set up an object at high enough super-speed causes that object unstable resonance in a bay door, causing it to ''explode''; hence, he doesn't use it explode, an using his fists to create an uncomfortable resonance in Dr. Fate's helmet. These abilities are not often exhibited for several reasons. As remarked by Green Lantern, setting up the resonance in the door was very often. (It's dangerous, hence why Flash never performed it. Threatening to scramble someone's brains with your fingers is simply not superhero-esque, and overall, Flash seems to prefer non-violent methods of disabling his enemies as opposed to hitting them really, really fast. It's also a MythologyGag, where in the comics he'd cause things to explode by vibrating through them.)

While at the same time, Luthor is extracting info from Grodd's mind. The two processes are started at the same time, and Luthor and Flash's brains are accidentally switched.



* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Defied in "Divided We Fall"
-->'''Android Flash:''' Slacker! Child! Clown! We have no place among the world's greatest heroes.
-->'''Flash:''' Says you. I've got a seat at the big conference table. I'm gonna paint my logo on it!



* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain: In "The Great Brain Robbery", Flash is terrible at trying to act like Lex Luthor using every known villain cliche in the book.
