Speed is the amount of time it takes someone or something to travel a certain distance. There are 3 forms of speed relevant to the discussion of fictional battles.

  • Travel Speed- How fast one can go from Point A to Point B
  • Combat Speed- How fast one can fight
  • Reaction time- How one can perceive and react to something.

Infinite Speed (As fast as desired)

Immeasurable (Higher-dimensional entities beyond linear time and its' concepts of speed. Meaning: Level 2-C to 1-B.)

Irrelevant (Characters beyond the concepts of dimensions themselves Meaning: Level 1-A and above,)


∞ + (Beyond Tier 0, yet still below Memetic.)

Memetic (Memetic Tier characters.)
