The tops used by Top were seen during his first appearance in The Flash #122.

Since this first issue the Top has used a wide variety of trick tops.

Types // Variations

  • Confetti Top - The very first top used by the Top. It spewed out a bundle of confetti that was incredibly strong and could entangle a foe; thus trapping them. A larger version of this top was later used by the Top that was powered by Flashes speed.
  • Smoke Top - This top created a very thick, black smoke that made it nearly impossible to see.
  • Atomic Grenade Top - This top was shaped like a grenade but had the spinning properties of a top. It had the blast power to destroy half of the earth.
  • Wire Top - Similar to the Confetti Top, this top spewed out a very thin metallic wire to wrap around foes thus trapping them.
  • Hologram Top - This top had the ability to create a vast amount of holograms that looked like the Top. The more it spun the more holograms that were created.
  • Strobe Top - This top flashed a series of very bright lights to blind its targets.
  • Pellet Top - This top fired a series of metallic pellets that stung their targets.
  • Fire Top - This top fired a series of intense flames; similar to a flamethrower.
  • Aging Top - This top was filled with a mysterious serum designed to age whoever is splashed with the liquid by 100 years.
  • Blacklight Top - This top projected an intense shroud of darkness while it spun thus making it impossible to see.
  • Tornado Top - The top spun so quickly that it was able to create a series of tornadoes.
  • Glue Top - This top contained a very sticky adhesive that was capable of gluing Flash's feet to the ground.
  • Paralyzing Top - This top created a specific set of vibrations when it spun that it was capable of paralyzing it's targets for a short period.
  • Satellite Top - This top was located in space and was used by the Top to stash his money and loot far away from the cops and other Rogues.
  • Explosive Top - This top created concussive force when it exploded, similar to a bomb.
  • Transmitter Top - The top contained a prerecorded message from the Top and was sent to Mirror Master after his death.
  • Earth Top - The top was a trap set by the Top within the ground. When activated it removed a top-shaped wedge of ground from the earth and spun at rapid speeds into the sky until it reached a certain point at which it'd come crashing down into the ground.
  • Laser Trap Tops - These tops spun in a circle at rapid speeds and hovered around their targets waist before firing a deadly beam of energy to vaporize whatever is caught inside.
