This is a {{Manga Effect|s}}, and is indicative of a stylistic difference between the west and Japan in the depiction of movement. While speed lines in the west are traditionally drawn on the character and leave the background in focus, the Japanese artist traditionally speed-lines the background, leaving the character in focus. In the western version, the observer is a stationary bystander being passed or approached by the character, but in the Japanese version the reader is moving ''with'' the character. Incidentally, it's useful for reducing the budget by avoiding having to draw a background, so you can reuse the footage to your heart's content.

* Parodied in ''ComicBook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac''; one [[ShowWithinAShow Happy Noodle Boy]] strip had Noodle Boy running away, only to remark "Shit! [[MediumAwareness Speed lines are chasing me!]]"

* A season 4 ''WesternAnimation/{{Reboot}}'' episode makes fun of this, while the characters of Bob and Matrix play a game that combines ''DBZ'' and ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Matrix is held in an airborne kick for an extended shot, and it's revealed that he's on wires in front of a speed-striped rolling background.
* The lawyers in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' do this when [[MundaneMadeAwesome making particularly forceful arguments]]. It can become a BiggerStick if the two lawyers pull these off back and forth in quick succession. One example:
-->Edgeworth: *SpeedStripes* "Can you prove that? I THINK NOT!"\\
Phoenix: *SpeedStripes* "Oh, yeah? I THINK I CAN! It's simple!"\\
Edgeworth: *SpeedStripes* "WHAAAAAT!?"
* For a Western CGI example, see ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''.



* The Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles not only get SpeedStripes, they're coordinated to each Turtle's color.



* Referenced in this ''WebComic/QuestionableContent'' strip "[[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=721 Speed Lines Equal INTENSITY]]".

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' would use this on occasion.
* Even ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is guilty of this, while Marge is chasing Snake through the city in The Springfield Connection.
** The opening credits when shown in full seem to contain an example but when watched frame by frame the quick pan across their lawn is actually filled with people.
* ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' did this in an unusual way, using ''three-dimensional'' speed lines. [[SpecialEffectFailure In many cases, the background could be glimpsed in gaps between them.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' Intro, and occasionally during action sequences in-show.
* The ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'' series uses these, especially with the NitroBoost in the later [=OVAs=] and when the cars go fast.
* The ''ViewtifulJoe'' series, whenever you activate the Mach Speed VFX.

* In the third episode of season two of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Rainbow Dash has these behind her when she's destroying Applejack's old barn.

* Parodied during an early page of ''WebComic/TriggerStar''. When a {{Mook}} leaps at Avocado, he gets impaled on his own speed lines.
