** Burter from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' claimed to be this, but Goku quickly proved him wrong. Even at "equal" PowerLevels Goku proved to be faster than Burter's leader Captain Ginyu (and then proceeded to prove he could raise his power level and presumably his speed along with it).
** In sequel series ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' Nuova Shenron proves to be even faster than Goku, even faster than Omega Shenron, which is what the otherwise already more powerful Syn Shenron had become after absorbing the powers of every other shadow dragon ''except'' Nuova.

** The limit of the Black Flash's speed isn't really known, but the Black Flash is one aspect of [[TheGrimReaper Death]], and it's stated that he'll eventually catch every speedster. Wally West was able to outrun it by taking the speed of several other speedsters, and even then this only gave him superior acceleration as the Black Flash still gained on him, suggesting higher top speed - it just ran out of room, or time, to reach it.

* A member of ComicBook/TheEternals known as Makkari is the fastest being in the Marvel universe, in terms of natural speed. In a cosmic race, he technically came in second to the "Buried Alien" (an {{Expy}}} of DC's Barry Allen--although Makkari still proved superior in speed), and defeated other speedsters like the aforementioned Runner, ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, The Whizzer and Speed Demon.

** All of the various Flashes have this reputation--especially the original Wally West, who is in later stories credited as having far surpassed all of his predecessors and any other speedster in the known Franchise/DCUniverse (although, since Bary Allan's revival under Geoff Johns' pen, he appears to be considered more or less equal DependingOnTheWriter). There is the occasional being, phenomenon, machine etc, that does prove faster than him(as seen below) but Wally has an ability to "steal speed", which lets him temporarily increase his own while slowing someone else down.
