** * Averted for gameplay reasons much later in the game, however. [[spoiler:The poison you are given in the Hound Pits Pub is activated by movement, not time - so the closer you get to your bedroom, the hazier your vision gets, with Corvo passing out when he reaches his room. Of course, this means that the player [[GameplayAndStorySegregation could stay in the Hound Pits for ''hours'' and suffer no ill effects]], if they so choose.]]



* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''. [[spoiler:The poison you are given in the Hound Pits Pub is activated by movement, not time - so the closer you get to your bedroom, the hazier your vision gets, with Corvo passing out when he reaches his room. Of course, this means that the player could stay in the Hount Pits for ''hours'' and suffer no ill effects, if they so choose.]]

* The title character suffers this in ''Film/SpiderMan1'', courtesy of the Green Goblin. He takes a face-full of KnockoutGas and passes out in seconds. It takes a lot longer for the effects to wear off - when he wakes up, he's coherent but unable to move while the Goblin gives his WeCanRuleTogether speech.

* In ''Extremis'', Literature/JohnRain and Dox plan to start a war between the Triads and Yakuza by robbing a drug deal, shooting the Triads but only using a TranquilizerDart on the yakuza so it looked like they ripped off the drugs. [[OhCrap Unfortunately the yakuza soldiers turn out to be two huge ex-sumo wrestlers]]. Dox shoots them in the neck so they go down fast, but they recover quickly and attack Rain and Dox as they're trying to arrange the scene, leading to BlackComedy as Rain tries to immobilize the still woozy thugs.

* There is an almost-instant tranquilizer dart firing crossbow in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''; however, if the target is in combat, it takes longer to knock them out than if they are relaxed.

* Played with in the ’’Series/Psych’’episode This Episode Sucks. Lassiter is knocked out with a chloroform rag after a while of struggling but recovers. Justified as he’s apparently been building a tolerance to the substance for 15 years just for such an occasion. Played straight with Gus who takes one sniff and passes out immediately.
