* ''ComicBook/RedRobin'': Becoming a "Daughter of Acheron" gives one superpowers which are able to knock someone out without lingering side effects if used carefully, though it can go wrong and the victim may never wake or be left permanently damaged.

* Averted in ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' (2009). It takes a couple of minutes for the drugged wine Irene Adler feeds him to take effect.

** Chloroform is highly toxic and it is frighteningly easy to administer a lethal overdose even with proper medical equipment and training. Portrayals of chloroform use (particularly those playing to [[RuleThirtyFour the fetish crowd]]) also rarely mention the common side-effects of chloroform exposure, such as nausea, splitting headaches, and (under prolonged exposure) severe liver damage. Some people have even been known to vomit immediately at the first sniff of a chloroform rag.

Some people have even been known to vomit immediately at the first sniff of a chloroform rag. Finally, unless combined with another agent (generally injected or consumed), chloroform is far from 'instant'; with inhalation alone, it can take around five minutes for someone to pass out, and continuous application is necessary afterwards to keep them unconscious.

* ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'' has Ana Amari's sleep darts, capable of dropping a target instantaneously (and amusingly) where they stand.

* Almost {{Subverted}} once in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' when Archer injects an Orion with an off-button hypo. The Orion freezes up, goes stiff as a board, wobbles back and forth for a few will-he-or-won't-he seconds...and finally goes down.

** * 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.
