In console versions of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, The Flash is capable of zooming through objects and destroying them. His combats are faster than any other characters, even his body parts move at the same speed. He is also the only character able to build deconstructed LEGO bricks back together, as this ability must be used to activate several Bat Terminals.
In portable versions, as well as having super-speed, The Flash has the Acrobatic ability and so can double-jump, jump through acrobatic hatches and swing on acrobat poles. He is mainly used for activating special red treadmills with his super-speed, which can unlock minikits, soundbites, and power bricks. The Flash also has a slightly different cowl and face in the portable version.
In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, The Flash is identical to his real-life 2014 variant.
Barry Allen was known for being slow and easy-going. While a senior in college (with a major in organic chemistry and a minor in criminology) he helped the police apprehend a criminal at a bank robbery, he was offered a job as a police scientist in Central City. One night, during an electrical storm Barry was working on an experiment when a lightning bolt zapped a cabinet of chemicals, and the electrified chemicals bathed him. Through several events that night and the next day, including running past a taxi, catching items a waitress dropped, and saving Iris West from a bullet, Barry discovered that he had gained super speed.Batman, Green Lantern, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and on some occasions Nightwing, Batgirl, Huntress, Zatanna, Hawkman, The Martian Manhunter and Shazam.
In LEGO Batman 2
He later answers Martian Manhunter's call to Gotham, but arrives later than Cyborg, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman. He arrives after the Joker robot has fallen from Wayne Tower and helps Green Lantern quickly repair the base to relieve Superman, who faints, and Wonder Woman. He then participates in finishing off the robot and then defeating The Joker and Lex Luthor.
In the portable version, Flash is one of the Justice League members who appear to help Batman and Superman defeat Lex Luthor in the last level, The Final Battle. His minikit can also be found on this level in Free Play. He costs 300,000 studs.
In LEGO Batman 3
Members of the Lantern Corps are all summoned by a mysterious force, where they are ambushed by Brainiac. The Corps lose the battle against Brainiac's machinations and are brainwashed into boarding his ship. With this complete, Brainiac charts a course for Earth in order to retrieve the final Lantern: Hal Jordan. Meanwhile, in Gotham City, Batman and Robin pursue Killer Croc through the sewers. Killer Croc escapes, and hands over a map to his accomplices: the Joker, Cheetah, Firefly and Solomon Grundy. At the Hall of Justice, Cyborg completes work on a "slideways teleporter" linking the Hall to the Justice League Watchtower, and sends Hal, the Green Lantern, through it to meet with Martian Manhunter as a trial run. The test is successful, and the portal is left open.
Back at the Batcave, the Batcomputer detects Brainiac's approaching spaceship. Observing the ship from via telescope, Batman is exposed to the mind-control ray; he quickly turns berserk, laying waste to the Batcave and trying to escape via Batmobile. However, the car's defense system electrocutes him, giving Robin enough time to talk Batman out of his trance with a heartfelt speech; however, Batman maintains it was the electricity, and not the speech, which woke him. At the Hall of Justice, the Joker and company break into the slideways teleporter room via the sewer using the map Killer Croc stole, and are joined by Lex Luthor disguised as Hawkman, having locked up the real Hawkman in a cage. Luthor is revealed to be the mastermind of the scheme, planning to use the Watchtower's binary fusion cannon to hold the Earth at ransom and force the citizens to make him President. The group enter the teleporter.
Batman and Robin alert Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern to the presence of Brainiac's ship, but are interrupted when the arrival of Luthor's group causes a Watchtower lockdown. Green Lantern goes to investigate Brainiac's ship, leaving Martian Manhunter to send out a distress signal to the rest of the Justice League. Batman and Robin take a rocket into space and are joined by Superman, Cyborg, the Flash, and Wonder Woman, Superman and at the Watchtower. The group break in to find the ship in disarray and the Joker in control of the main computer. Superman and Batman subdue all the villains, and the League prepare to return to Earth, but are halted when Brainiac sends a transmission to the Watchtower, revealing his plan: to use the combined powers of the Lantern Corps to charge a shrink ray which will miniaturize Earth, allowing Brainiac to add it to his growing collection of planets.
Begrudgingly, Luthor suggests an alliance with the League to fight the common enemy, and Batman concedes. While Superman flies out into space and attempts to stop the shrink ray reaching Earth, the others make their way to the Watchtower's control room in order to use the ship's mechanical arms to grapple onto Brainiac's spaceship and board it. Once there, they are ambushed by Green Lantern, who, it turns out, was brainwashed by Brainiac during his investigation of the spaceship. Robin tries to talk him out of his trance as he did with Batman, but the others cut him off and seal Green Lantern out of the ship. Green Lantern returns to Brainiac's spaceship and takes his place in the shrink ray, allowing Brainiac, having now acquired all the Lanterns, to finally activate it. While Superman tries to keep it at bay, the others manage to successfully latch onto the UFO and infiltrate it.
Making their way to the heart of the ship, the group confront Brainiac, who increases the strength of the shrink ray. Superman, who is still in the path of the beam, is unable to resist it any longer and falls to Earth, weakened. This overloads the shrink ray and causes it to explode, releasing all the Lanterns from hypnosis and instantly warping them all back to their home planets. Brainiac escapes to Earth in a smaller ship at the last minute as the UFO spirals out of control. Some of the group are hit by energy beams from the wayward Lanterns' rings, giving them the emotions associated with the Corps. Robin agrees to stay and watch them as their behaviour becomes erratic while Batman and Wonder Woman descend to Earth to tend to an injured Superman. They follow him to Paris, France where the impact of his crash-landing destroys the Eiffel Tower, which Batman promptly rebuilds in his own image.
Meanwhile, the out-of-control UFO crashes into the Watchtower and sends it spiralling towards the Moon, but Green Lantern, having returned from Oa, uses his ring to stop it. Cyborg corrects the course of the UFO and sets its destination to Gotham. Back in Paris, Brainiac arrives and proceeds to shrink the city down to the size of a bottle; Superman, having recovered, rescues Paris before the villain can capture it. Brainiac moves onto London, England and then Pisa, Italy, only to have both attempts foiled in the same way. Finally, he travels to Gotham City and tries to shrink it as well, but is thwarted by Robin, Cyborg and their group of emotional misfits who have touched down in Gotham in the UFO. The Flash traps Brainiac and his ship in a makeshift cage, and everyone returns to the now-fixed Watchtower.
There, Robin tells the group that he managed to retain a fragment of the crystal holding the Lanterns' power from the shrink ray after the explosion. Superman subsequently formulates a plan: to use the supply of energy crystals stored at the Fortress of Solitude in tandem with Robin's shard to create a duplicate shrink ray in order to undo the effects of Brainiac's machine and re-grow the cities. However, in order for it to work, the powers of all the Lanterns are once again required, which is complicated by the fact that the explosion returned them all to their respective planets. Ultimately, the group splits up, and each team travels to a different Lantern planet to meet with the Corps and retrieve a sample of energy from their power rings.
With all the Lanterns' powers assembled, the group meet at the Fortress of Solitude and Superman gets to work on the duplicate shrink ray. After a brief skirmish with the Rogue Lanterns, whose power samples were taken by force, the machine is complete and Earth is returned to its normal size, along with all its cities. However, upon sending the Flash back to Gotham to check on Brainiac, he returns to report that both he and his ship have escaped the makeshift cage.
Brainiac arrives at the Fortress of Solitude and uses both the duplicate ray and his mind-control device to inflate Superman to gigantic proportions and send him on a destructive rampage across Earth. Without any Kryptonite, all of the group's attacks are powerless against the hypnotised Superman, until Batman has the idea of electrocuting him to snap him out of Brainiac's control, recalling his incident in the Batmobile. The group assemble a generator and shock Superman, to no effect. Robin then realizes that it was in fact his speech to Batman that broke the trance all along, not the electrocution, and Batman proceeds to deliver a heartfelt monologue to Superman. Gradually, Superman is released from Brainiac's control, and he destroys the villain's ship, sending it flying off into the depths of space. Brainiac himself is imprisoned.
Their mission complete, the members of the League return home, and the villains part ways with them, resuming their lives of crime. Luthor achieves his initial goal of becoming President - but this is only temporary, and both he and the Joker are thrown into jail, sharing a cell with Brainiac, who begins to formulate a plan to escape.
In a mid-credits scene, Hawkman is shown to still not have escaped from his cage as the cleaning crew can't hear him. The other members of the Justice League arrive at the Watchtower. At the very end, in a final cutscene, a man is seen cleaning in front of the portal when it activates suddenly, and the shadowy figures of what appears to be the Avengers from Marvel Comics (Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye). However, the portal then shuts off, the lights turn back on, and this is revealed to just be Aquaman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Shazam, Booster Gold, Nightwing, and Swamp-Thing.

Flash and the Magician were captured by Robo Feds, MetalBeard was "bricked" by Lord Business, and the others were captured by Laser Sharks that were kept as guards. He was with every other Master Builder who was captured by Lord Business and Bad Cop. He was also at the end of the movie with Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Aquaman.
