** Eddie seems to have been gone from RagsToRiches in very short time. But then the CorruptCorporateExecutive cut all his credit. He could have won millions if he would waited, but NZT comes with limited time.

** Though his life goes through hell for a while, Eddie still gets away with removing evidence from the scene of a murder, sleeping with a married woman, cheating on his own girlfriend after they get back together and possibly murdering the girl he cheated with. (he can't remember if he did it, both Eddie and the audience never find out)

* DrugsAreBad: Played with. The movie shows the consequences of abusing the drug in very icky detail that sometimes enters ''Film/RequiemForADream'' territory. But Eddie's much more capable and hyperintelligent when on said drugs, he's trying to quit them that turns things worse, [[spoiler:and it finally turns out he can remain super-smart without taking the drug at all ''or'' he used the intelligence boost to figure out how to make it himself while fixing the downsides]]. Could possibly be a BrokenAesop.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: What happens when apparently anyone takes a NZT pill. In Eddie's case, he becomes able to connect information within his brain in a way far superior than simple recall. Any new piece of information is connected to the web of knowledge inside his mind, and because it's all connected, he's able to call up any piece of info at any time. Especially when something related to it pops up, making the information useful.

* FatalFlaw: Eddie's {{Pride}} makes him so overconfident in his genius he doesn't ask himself the question most of us are thinking when he first uses NZT : What happens when you run out ?

Added DiffLines:

* ImportantHaircut: When he's a slacker author at the start, Eddie wears his hair half-long and scruffy. When he starts taking NZT and becomes a genius playboy, he changes it to something a bit shorter and more obviously styled and fashionable. In the end, when he's running for Senate, he's changed it again to a short, conservative, businesslike style.

In 2015 the story received a SequelSeries of the same name, airing on CBS. Cooper reprises his role as Eddie in the pilot and possibly future episodes, but the series focuses on new characters Brian Finch and FBI agent Rebecca Harris. Tropes for the series go [[Series/{{Limitless}} here]].
