Villain Activity

Since the Flash's career spans over many centuries, the Flash has made foes over various timelines.

Secret Identity

Since they are from the future, Professor Zoom and Abra Kadabra are fully aware of the secret identities of every single Flash and know where to hurt them the most.

The Riddler was able to figure out the Flash's identity, but thanks to Wally West, thinks Barry was covering for the real Flash.

The speedsters Negative Flash and Godspeed are also aware of Barry's identity due to their previous connections to him.
