    Nope. Anything could have a higher speed than Helium. Speed depends on temperature as well.

    Think mythology.

    Mercury?

    Only thing that comes to mind to do with mythology. I don't understand why it would be the speediest element though.

    Well done.

    Mercury was known for his speed. The planet mercury is called that because it orbits the sun the quickest. The element is called that I presume because it's a fast flowing liquid at room temperature.

    Ok next one

    Wolf.
