Though anaesthetic and hypnotic gasses of many sorts exist, and are still occasionally used in veterinary medicine[[note]]though "gassing down" is invariably a tactic of last resort[[/note]], all have the properties of being fairly slow-acting, decidedly dosage-dependent, and fairly easily lethal, unlike the gasses in this trope. Therefore, please refrain from citing real life examples.

In fiction, one of the easiest ways to incapacitate an opponent or group of opponents is to get them in a closed room and pump in Knockout Gas. Knockout Gas is an area-effect form of InstantSedation: as soon as the victims breathe it, they cough weakly a few times and then slump to the floor unconscious.
