The Flash is a playable character in Injustice: Gods Among Us and Injustice 2. He is classified as a Gadget user. The Flash relies entirely upon his speed to fight, literally running circles around slower opponents.
Default (Gods Among Us)
After an electrical accident at his lab, scientist Barry Allen was left with the ability to move, think and react at super speeds. A member of the Justice League, the Flash uses his super speed to fight crime.
Regime (Gods Among Us)
The Flash joined Superman's One Earth government because he believed in it. He told Shazam that it made sense at first, doing so to protect Iris, but lately serious doubts have begun to creep in.
Once known as The Fastest Man Alive, Barry Allen has hung up his boots in public shame after defecting from the Regime. However as a new enemy threatens the innocent, The Flash returns to action, determined to redeem himself.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
The Flash first appears alongside the Justice League, fighting off the group of villains assembled by Lex Luthor to occupy them. Upon witnessing Shazam's Thunder of the Gods, the Flash asks Green Arrow what they are to them, to which the Arrow replies "the poor slobs who clean up the mess". When the Joker prepares to detonate the nuclear bomb given to him by Luthor, the Flash runs ahead of the other heroes to try and stop him. However, he isn't fast enough to reach them as Batman, the Joker, and several of the heroes are pulled from their dimension into an altered reality. Back in the Watchtower, the Flash and Cyborg begin working tirelessly to locate their allies. The Flash suggests he vibrate at the same frequency as the energy signature and follow them. However, Superman tells him that they don't know where they could've ended up yet, or if they ended up anywhere at all.
In the altered reality, the Flash appears as a member of Superman's One Earth Regime. He and their universe's Shazam venture to Atlantis to meet with their Aquaman and finalize the treaty he agreed to sign, unaware that the Aquaman that they meet with is actually the displaced Aquaman from the other dimension. Upon reading the treaty and finding out that it entails Superman's complete takeover of Atlantis, Aquaman refuses to sign it, prompting a fight between him and the Flash, which Aquaman wins.
Back in their dimension, the Flash and Cyborg devise a plan to pull their allies back into their dimension using the Flash's Cosmic Treadmill. They make the necessary modifications and put their plan into action. However, the inter-dimensional gateway belonging to the Insurgents activates at the same time, pulling Cyborg into their dimension.
The alternate Flash later appears in the Watchtower alongside Shazam. Both of them begin to question whether or not they're still doing the right thing in following Superman's Regime. Just then, they're confronted by Deathstroke , who knocks them both into the reactor room using motion sensor bombs. The Flash clashes with Deathstroke but is beaten, followed by Shazam. He and Shazam are teleported off of the Watchtower by the displaced Cyborg before it explodes.
After the attack on Stryker's Island, the Flash and Shazam appear at Superman's council meeting, where he announces his intention to destroy Metropolis and Gotham to set an example to the people, then invades the duplicates' universe for interfering. When Shazam challenges Superman's decision, he promptly kills him by using his heat vision to burn through his eyes all the way through the skull, thus confirming the Flash's belief that they are no longer doing the right thing. The Flash defects from the Regime, subduing Yellow Lantern and Solomon Grundy when they attempt to stop him from leaving. Using the coordinates given to him by Killer Frost , the Flash rushes to warn the Insurgents of Superman's plan. He briefly detours upon seeing Sinestro about to execute several renegade soldiers before the entire army. The Flash quickly disarms all of the soldiers and confronts Sinestro, who promptly launches him into the air. He lands in front of Wayne Manor, where he and Sinestro face off. Once he has him beat, the Flash builds a pyramid of stone bricks around him so he won't escape. He then proceeds to the Insurgency, where he is surprised to encounter the displaced Green Arrow, who he believed to be dead. Seeing him as a threat, Green Arrow attacks the Flash, but they both manage to come to an understanding.
The Flash explains Superman's plan to the Insurgents and helps defend their base when they are attacked by the Regime. When the battle is moved to the streets of Gotham, he fights Yellow Lantern by running circles around him, only to be knocked back by the Lantern's shockwave attack.
In the epilogue, the Flash willingly turns himself in due to his previous allegiance with Superman's Regime to answer for his crimes and atone for his sins. He manages to give Green Arrow one last smile before he is taken away.
It is revealed that Batman pardoned the Flash due to his assistance in taking down the Regime, but Barry still feels the guilt of being a part of it, which is further reinforced by the people's unwillingness to trust him.
Powers and Abilities
The Flash is connected to the near limitless interdimensional energy known as the Speed Force, which is the source of his powers. As such, Barry can run well past the speed of light and is even faster than Superman himself, having previously outraced the Man of Steel and even gods. Barry's connection to the Speed Force generates a frictionless aura around his body to protect himself from the dangers of running at high speed, generates large amounts of electrical energy around his body for various uses, and even move him so fast that his own perception of time is altered to where everyone around him is seemingly moving in slow motion when in reality Barry is simply moving too fast for them to catch up with.
The Speed Force also super charges his body, allowing him to recover from wounds at a rapid rate and increases Barry's over all durability. When pushing his speed to his absolute limits, Barry is even capable of traveling through time or other dimensions entirely on his own without technological aid.
In battle, the Flash uses his superspeed to his advantage, striking with multiple punches and kicks at high speeds for maximum damage, or using the lightning generated by the Speed Force to empower his punches and kicks or even his entire body. While Barry is fast enough to see or even catch approaching hits, he often doesn't think fast enough to use this to his full advantage, leaving him open to attacks he can actually block entirely.
- Speed Dodge: Flash vibrates at high speeds, causing him to become intangible briefly. The Meter Burn version causes the Flash to release a small burst of lightning from his chest.
- Lightning Charge: Flash thrusts his entire body forward while surrounded by electricity, headbutting his foe in the abdomen. The Meter Burn version has Flash perform a second hit, knocking his opponent higher into the air.
- Lightning Kick: Flash delivers a swift lightning charged kick to his opponent's midsection. The Meter Burn version has Flash deliver three more kicks.
- Sonic Pound: Flash leaps into the air and comes down hard with an electricity fueled punch that causes a small shockwave. The Meter Burn version increases the damage of the attack.
- Flying Uppercut: Flash thrusts his entire body into the air, covered in lightning and headbutting his opponent similar to Lightning Charge.
- Running Man Stance: Flash drops down and adopts a runner's stance as his body vibrates and charges with electricity, before doing either an overhead charge or a low sweeping dash.
Time Loop: The Flash's character trait is the ability to slow down the opponent as if the Flash was moving super fast. It enables him to perform combos that weren't previously possible and also allows him to easily dodge attacks from his opponent.
- Grab: The Flash grabs his opponent, rapidly punches them in the abdomen before running back and reappearing behind them to deliver a sudden elbow jab to their back that sends them forward.
- Speed Zone: The Flash slows down time and hits the opponent, he then runs around the world once to generate momentum, returns to the battlefield a moment later, and punches the opponent in the jaw, knocking them into the air, where Flash jumps up and behind them to land a second punches that knocks them back down.

Flash had taken down the High Councilor, but the atrocities he had abetted during Superman's regime continued to haunt him. His shame eventually drove him into exile. Whether wishing to make further amends or simply unable to stop himself, Flash continued to use his powers in the pursuit of justice. Rumors of a mysterious red streak of energy that would set upon and incapacitate criminals circulated throughout Central City. While only some deduced his true name, most felt gratitude and affection for the new hero they called the Ghost.
So much for the heroes. Brainiac had barely hit the floor when the arguing started. Should we kill him? Keep him alive? I couldn't watch them go to war. Not again. So I ran--into the Speed Force! Brainiac wanted the universe to himself, so I dropped him off at the end of history. But I still kept running. I needed to be alone. Then I heard a familiar voice... It was Jay--and other speedsters! A crisis is coming, he told me. But if we run fast enough, together, we just might save the Multiverse. I thought I'd been running away. But I was running toward something. It is good to believe in heroes again.
Flash wears a full-body red costume with yellow accents. He has small yellow lightning bolts around his wrist and a lightning bolt logo on his chest. He also has two lightning bolts facing outward from his mask.
The One Earth Regime's version of the Flash has a similar costume to his main counterpart. However, the costume incorporates more armor and more prominent wings on his head. He retains his small lightning bolts on his wrists but also has them on his waist. He also retains his lightning bolt logo but has less yellow accents. He wears this costume as a member of the Regime.
- The Flash was also playable in NetherRealm's crossover game, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.
- The Flash is voiced by Neal McDonough, who previously voiced Green Arrow in the DC: Showcase short of the same name. He also voiced Deadshot in Assault On Arkham and has appeared in multiple 'Arrowverse' series.
- The Flash's super move is a reference to the Justice League Unlimited episode Divided We Fall. The Speed Force is also a dimension for speedsters that Barry Allen created, after he defeated the Anti-Monitor.
- The Flash is the only member of the Regime whom sided with the Insurgency.
- The Flash's Super Move, "Speed Zone," is the strongest in the game, doing 39% damage (along with Shazam's "The Power of SHAZAM").
