* In ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'', speedsters occasionally engage in this. For example, while we don't actually see Barry's perspective, a mugger, who tries to rob him at gunpoint finds himself disarmed, pantsed, and facing a cop. In a later episode, Barry parodies the Quicksilver scene from ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' and has the {{Dirty Cop}}s slam one another in the face with their guns. During a prison fight, he positions the thugs so that they hit one another and causes a third one to break his hand against a beam, while making it look like they're simply incompetent. Oh, and he uses his powers to cheat at prison poker. In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', a drunk Wally does this to Gary, dropping his pants and stealing his [[TimeMachine time courier]].
