* ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'': One of [[spoiler:Touka]]'s concoctions functions this way when tossed onto a fire, he has a version of it that is altered to be more deadly as well though it is possible this is the same concoction in different amounts since the "antidote" that prevents one from passing out dead asleep from the first version still works with it, it just no longer prevents the one inhaling it from becoming ill and dying. It also takes a bit longer to put those inhaling it to sleep than most examples.

* ''VideoGame/{{ThiefTheDarkProject}}'' has Gas Arrows: shooting a mook will knock him out even if he's fully aware of your presence (and thus would only get annoyed by the Blackjack). Shooting the ground has an area effect, knocking out everyone within a meter or so.

** ''VideoGame/ThiefIITheMetalAge'' adds in Gas Mines - a mix of the Gas Arrow and Mine that can be used in the same way, but only as an area effect and only after a mook steps on it.
*** ''VideoGame/ThiefDeadlyShadows'' replaces the above with the Gas Grenade. It works like the Gas Mine, but is instantaneous.
