->''"Brooahhh! Coffeecoffeecoffee! Coffee! It's not as strong as methamphetamine, but it lets you keep your teeth!"''
-->-- '''Gordon Freeman''', ''Machinima/FreemansMind''

Caffeine Bullet Time is when a hyperactive character of some sort, usually a comic SideKick, ends up saving the day by increasing their speed to superhuman levels with some sort of stimulant. [[BreadEggsMilkSquick Coffee, sugar, drugs,]] whatever the source, sometimes the speed increase is so great that it seems like TimeStandsStill. Since this is a {{comedy trope|s}}, the stimulant is usually [[MustHaveCaffeine caffeine]].

In some cases, it is a generally [[GenkiGirl low-Genki]] character who imbibes enough caffeine to send them into bullet time.

Of course, despite caffeine being a GRatedDrug, [[PhlebotinumOverload caffeine overdose]] in the real world is not pretty. Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} claims it can cause "[[SideEffectsInclude dizziness, fast heartbeat, blurred vision, drowsiness, dry mouth, flushed dry skin, increased urination, loss of appetite, nausea and stomach aches]]". Consume "enough" at one time and it will kill you; for example, if you could drink about 154 cans of Mountain Dew in five minutes, you wouldn't be around to finish number 155. (Of course, your stomach would burst long before the caffeine did you in. However, this is a real hazard with caffeine pills; you ''can'' kill yourself by popping too many.) And, unlike more controlled stimulants, it has an obnoxiously narrow effective range, which commonly involves toeing the superthin line between still barely feeling it and side effects already present in force, even for a heavily dependent Caffeine Junkie (not an exaggeration in the least, as caffeine withdrawals have pronounced physical symptoms, and last far longer than most any "real" drug... As ubiquitous an ingredient as it is, most heavily dependent persons in modern societies just rarely experience going entirely without it long enough for full-force physical [=WDs=] to kick in, and would almost never end up in a situation where they could--much less actually would--ride them out cold turkey until they subside.)

It certainly doesn't make time appear to stand still around you in a hyper-stimulated BulletTime (although some people have reported a short period of "everything going slowly" right before crashing). But this is [[RuleOfFunny Comedy Land]].

Usually used in cartoons. KlatchianCoffee is likely to have the effect. Contrast CaffeineFailure.

* Giorno in Part 5 of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' can actually inflict a more serious version of this on others. By hitting somebody with Gold Experience (a Stand revolving around giving life to things,) he can speed up their thought processes to inhuman levels, forcing them into BulletTime. Unfortunately, their body doesn't move any faster, so it's used as an offensive measure to disorient people (and at one point Giorno then punches his friend Bruno Buccellati in the face, causing him to feel the pain drawn out over several seconds.)
* [[MadScientist Mayuri Kurotsuchi]] from ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' invented a drug that is supposed to give this effect. It only affects the nerves, though, so it just makes it seem like everything, including the affected one's own movement happens in slow-motion. Also it is way too strong, so undiluted the drug makes it seem like it takes YEARS just to blink, and the body feels so out of sync with the mind it basically becomes paralyzed. So he weaponized it.

* Villainous example: [[OneSceneWonder Snowflame]], a villain in ''ComicBook/TheNewGuardians'' who got his power from cocaine.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In the Literature/HarryPotter / Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}} crossover ''Terminal Justice'', after drinking fourteen ''pots'' of iced mocha, Harry started skipping down the hallway singing and babbling a mile a minute and was described by the author as "greatly resembling Flash on a sugar high".
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6690487/1/Growing-Up-Kneazle Growing Up Kneazle]]'', after spending nearly his entire pre-Hogwarts childhood in his Kneazle animagus form, Harry discovered that in human form, catnip had a stimulant/hallucinogen effect on him.
* Chronosplicing ''FanFic/ChronomistressOutOfTime'', the secret technique taught to the sacred Order of Timekeepers. It speeds up thoughts, gives perfect awareness of time, as well as [[TheSpock turns off emotions]] and grants AwesomenessByAnalysis.
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' Fanfic, ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/38381/1/pinkie-pie-discovers-coffee/pinkie-pie-discovers-coffee Pinkie Pie Discovers Coffee]]'' would lead many to believe this [[ApocalypseHow would result in something catastrophic]] judging by the title of the story. [[BaitAndSwitch However, it doesn't]]. [[spoiler:Twilight Sparkle, [[ExplosiveOverclocking on the other hand...]]]]
* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' travel adventure ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/11/Gap-Year-Adventures Gap Year Adventures]]''by Creator/AAPessimal, the journey through Klatch involves coffee. Here it is used as a morning restorative after a previous evening spent on the bhong-pipe in a different sort of intoxication.
* ''FanFic/EscapeFromTheMoon'': Spliced gets ''very'' hyped up on coffee in chapter 6 of the sequel ''The Mare From the Moon'', to the point where she's [[MotorMouth talking a mile a minute]] and acting more than a little crazier than usual.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' ParodyFic ''Attack of the Fifty-Foot Half-Klingon'', Seven of Nine fuels her JetPack with Captain Janeway's Special Blend. "A single drop of her coffee is enough to keep me flying for hours."

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Played straight in ''WesternAnimation/OverTheHedge.'' In the climactic fight between the woodland dwellers and the suburbanites, Verne and RJ give Hammy, the hyperactive squirrel, an energy drink. At first [[InvertedTrope it seems like the caffeine slowed him down]], since he starts acting a lot more relaxed than usual, but then we see how time has distorted around him: Hammy leisurely strolls past the exterminator, a crazy happy dog and the crazy HouseWife to activate the laser grid defense system, while getting the cookie he wanted earlier to boot. Not only that, when he activates the lasers, he casually walks past the slowly extending beams, which means ''[[FasterThanLightTravel he exceeded the speed of light]]''. [[spoiler:He had enough time left to forage for an empty log's worth of food.]]
* The movie ''WesternAnimation/{{Hoodwinked}}'' also included [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3Lp0irIU3Q a hyperactive squirrel]] (named Twitchy) who, at the end, needed a caffeine boost to rocket down a mountain to warn the cops about the bad guy while the rest of the cast tried to stop his evil plot. Unfortunately, when the squirrel finds the cops, he spoke so fast that they couldn't understand a word he said. The cops then recorded him repeating his superspeed speech(four seconds), and played it back at about half-speed(ten seconds), which gave him a very *deep*, smooooooth voice resembling an automated phone recording. This is a parody of how most people sound awful on tape, but Twitchy sounds very cool and collected. He actively preens himself as he hears the recording. In the sequel, it's standard procedure to play back his recordings at a slower speed to understand him.
* In the movie ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'', young protagonist Hogarth Hughes pays a late-night visit to beatnik junk artist Dean, who is drinking espresso. Hogarth asks for some, insisting he can handle it despite Dean's warning that the drink is "like Coffeezilla." Quick-cut to the rapid speech, wild gesturing, shaking hands... asking for more espresso...

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In the live-action ''Film/GeorgeOfTheJungle'' film, George sees a commercial for "Chock Full o'Nuts" coffee which suggests that drinking coffee will stimulate a romantic relationship. He proceeds to get the can from the pantry and ''eat the grounds''. Cue several minutes of him running around the apartment at top speed, acting insane and chanting "Javajavajavajavajavajavajavajavajavajavajava..."
* The 2000 short film ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npkPnswSqE0 Sixty Cups of Coffee]]'' has the main character [[BreakingTheFourthWall explain to the audience]] that drinking sixty cups in a single sitting allows the drinker to "see the truth", although what that truth could be is left unclear. The short centers on this character slamming cup after cup, the diner patrons having varied reactions to his attempt: the waitress worries for his health, the mother tells her curious son to look away, the truckers betting increasing amounts of personal trinkets over his success or failure and so on. [[spoiler:Something happens after the 60th cup but the ending is left open to interpretation.]]
* ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'' features a different variation of this trope. [[spoiler:When Leo, Mikey, and Donny are kidnapped by the Foot to have their Blood and Mutagen extracted to serve Eric Sacks's evil plan]], April manages to rescue them by pumping them with adrenaline before they can be killed. The result of which causes them to break out of their tanks and to jumps around blubbering excitedly yet incoherently before realizing [[spoiler:that Raph is getting killed by the Shredder]].

* ''Literature/LambTheGospelAccordingToBiff'': When Joshua for the first time tasted coffee at the Antioch's marketplace, a rapid healing-and-blessing session [[HilarityEnsues ensued]].
-->"“Go with God, and—” Josh spun, jumped, came down with each hand on a stranger’s shoulder and shouted, “Yes! Double healing! Go with God, friends, two times!"
* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', one of the most potent forms of KlatchianCoffee beans is called the ''Klatchnikov'' - as in "a shot of coffee".

* The infamous ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' VerySpecialEpisode where Jessie gets hooked on caffeine pills.
* One episode of ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh9iC9G_pHg#t=6m30s a Hoedown on the subject of coffee]]. Colin Mochrie proceeded to sing his 8 measures of lyrics in 4 measures of music, then did a fast hyperactive dance for the remaining four measures.
* In one episode of ''Outnumbered'', the already-hyperactive Ben and his older and more responsible brother Jake (who is not responsible on this occasion) drink (black?) coffee and their mom is devastated when she learns about it, because she'll have to deal with even more outrageous behaviour than usually.
** It was a double espresso, with five spoons of sugar added because it didn't taste very good at first. Ben reported feeling 'zing-zang-zongy'.
* In the "Wink of an Eye" episode of ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'', [[GirlOfTheWeek Deela]] slips Kirk a drug which speeds him up to BulletTime, enabling him to see her and her compatriots who live in BulletTime permanently. But since she got the drug into him by ''slipping it into his coffee'', it ends up looking an awful lot like CaffeineBulletTime.
** {{Averted|Trope}} in an episode of [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]. Captain Janeway refuses a cup of coffee with the comment, "One more cup and I'll go to warp."
* Deconstructed in ''Series/UltramanMax'' when an Alien Monster named "''Moyatalanka''" appears and generates a virus that spreads throughout Japan. The virus makes everyone, including both DASH and Ultraman Max act extremely hyper-active, but in doing so does their nervous system become damaged from their hyperactivity. However, Moyatalanka's virus proves useful to the elder members of DASH, [[NiceJobFixingItVillain who wind up using their "hyperactivity" to find a cure for the virus before they succumb to its side effects]].

* ''{{ComicStrip/Dilbert}}''. Wally teaches Dilbert that "sadness is another word for not enough coffee". As a result of the massive coffee cup Dilbert begins carrying around, he completes all his projects in a day before developing ''X-ray vision, precognition, and telekinesis''. Unfortunately, just as he's telekinetically crushing the [[PointyHairedBoss PHB's]] throat a la [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]], [[AllJustADream he wakes up]].
* In ''Helen, Sweetheart of the Internet'', Helen and her friend are at a coffee shop, and Helen orders some sort of boosted, experimental coffee. After remarking that she doesn't seem to feel the supposed effects of all this extra caffeine, she stands up and notices that her friend is in the middle of a blink, and that she has gone into Caffeine Bullet Time.
* ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} has a rather hyper reaction [[https://garfield.com/comic/1996-07-15 after eating Jon's bag of chocolate covered coffee beans.]]
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' has a sugar-induced variant, brought on when Calvin eats too much ChocolateFrostedSugarBombs cereal. It starts to get to the point where he perceives the world around him as moving slower than normal, while he's so wired up that he can't even talk normally.

* The ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' had the [[DesignatedVillain Technocracy]] bring out a little gem in the form of caffeine plus: "You'll be so wired, you'll see into other dimensions. Any more caffeine and you'll start vibrating off sound waves. Caffeine plus is dangerous to the human body, addictive to the mind, poisonous to the soul and sheer heaven with a pack of smokes."

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The nuclear powered "Bonk! Atomic Punch" Energy Drink Scout unlockable weapon in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. Contains several hundred times the daily recommended allowance of sugar. [[SideEffectsInclude Side effects include a feeling of lethargy that can last for several seconds (since removed in one of the subsequent updates).]] It also comes in two delicious [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience team-colored]] flavors: Blutonium Berry and Cherry Fission. He doesn't move faster, but every attack at him "misses". This really means he can soak up anything and everything that hits him for the next five or so seconds. Sentry fire and explosions still launch him into the air and launched arrows and syringes still get stuck in his body, however.
* The unlockable Caffeine Mode in ''VideoGame/AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAAARecklessDisregardForGravity'' makes everything go significantly slower- which is helpful, in a base-jumping game.
* The coffee item in ''VideoGame/WanderingHamster'' serves the function of boosting character's speed during battle.
* [[VideoGame/RiverCityRansom Karma Jolt!]] Against the last couple bosses, this is a GameBreaker.
* The ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series featured Hyper Candy, which makes Kirby invincible and, sometimes, hyperfast.
* ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' features the Combat Boost, which is apparently some type of adrenaline pill that sends the action into BulletTime.
* Miner's Coffee in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' increases your speed by 25% per cup, but only for 3 minutes and only in your Garrison Mine. (Where it's found, conveniently.)
* The "Turbo" drug item in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' slows down everything except the player's movement. Properly perked out, it can last a whole minute.
* In ''VideoGame/RetroCityRampage'', drinking coffee when you aren't DrunkOnMilk gives you SuperSpeed - enough to plow through pedestrians and outrun traffic.
* The "Reflex Reaction Aid" patch in ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' makes it look like time slows down, causing everything in-game to move slowly, from how fast an enemy fires at you, to your own movement speed. It also takes a while to wear off unless you kill the effect yourself with a Detox patch.
* The "Reflex Enhancer" from ''VideoGame/SPV3'', a [[GameMod Custom Campaign]] re-imagining of the ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' campaign, is a pickup that slows time around the Chief to half-speed for 30 seconds.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Gothic}}'', you can achieve similar effect by smoking swampweed.
* In ''VideoGame/ScottPilgrim'', coffee bought from shops or given by Knives gives you the same effect as being "In the Zone" (i.e. defeating several enemies in a row without getting hit): you glow yellow, move faster, and can wail on enemies by mashing the attack button.
* In ''VideoGame/HarryTheHandsomeExecutive'', a cup of coffee merely recharges Harry's LifeMeter. It takes a caffeine ''pill'' to give him a blast of speed.

* In ''Webcomic/{{PVP}}'', Francis tries to induce this so as to win at a video game competition. He believes he's succeeded when he sees time stop, but in reality he's hallucinating it and foaming at the mouth.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2002-08-18 does this straight]] in an early FillerStrip.
* This happens frequently to [[GenkiGirl Robin DeSanto]] in ''[[http://www.itswalky.com It's Walky!]]'' and ''WebComic/{{Shortpacked}}'', due to her [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum alien-enhanced metabolism]], though with sugar rather than caffeine. One time, after eating a whole bowl of cream eggs, she blacked out; when she came to, she found she'd been elected to Congress.
** When she realizes how little she has to show for her time as a Congresswoman, she does this deliberately to ensure she has a legacy. When she comes down, Series/{{Community}} is America's top comedy, WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated is in its fourth season, Justin Bieber is in line for the Nobel Peace Prize, and WORLD PEACE has been declared. Unfortunately, this all comes at the cost of her relationship with Leslie. And the World Peace is later overturned [[WarForFunAndProfit because it's bad for war industries]].
** Robin's ''normal'' state is so sugar-buzzed [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2009/comic/book-9/07-hello-roz-goodbye-reagan/contacthigh/ that she can give Muggles contact highs]] if they get too close.
* Agatha Heterodyne in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''. She drinks a cup of coffee (apparently her first ''ever''), then she asks for a book on coffee, gets the book, reads the book, marks all the spelling errors in the book, comprehends the material, and rushes off for ingredients. All [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070525 before the waitress can finish]] her ''answer''. She then proceeds to disassemble and reassemble a broken coffee machine, fixing it and making it capable of making the most spectacular coffee ''ever''. All while screaming without a single break and ordering a entire city of crazy people to help her.
* Kiki, the ferret mascot in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'', goes into hyperspeed whenever she eats candy. This has actually been used as an offensive technique by the protagonists of the comic, after they notice that this state allowed her to break through concrete walls due to sheer propulsion [[MadeOfIron with apparently no damage to herself]].

* [[http://www.reallifecomics.com/archive/021231.html This strip]] of ''Webcomic/RealLifeComics''.
** Despite some claims about TruthInTelevision, this can actually have the opposite of the intended effect. CNS stimulants like caffeine tend to increase the mind's obsessive-compulsive-perfectionist tendencies and make reaction times worse, whereas a light alcohol buzz will make players more relaxed and less hesitant (and, paradoxically, stimulate some parts of the brain due to alcohol's effect on glutamate receptors), thus improving reaction time. Reaction time is worthless if you can't aim well.
* A modified version shows in the Rooster Teeth staff comics (featuring a fan drawing comics of the staff who brought us ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''). The mellow Matt Hullum is shown often drinking coffee, but laid back. Someone tries swapping in decaf. The next scene shows that were Matt any more mellowed out, he'd be dead.
** That's not a fan, that's Geoff Ramsey's wife. Matt Hullum probably does drink that much coffee.
* ''Webcomic/FurWillFly'':

* From the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', Mister Excitement was a member of the Crimestoppers a team of [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway superhero wannabe's]]. Excitement had honest to God super-strength and SuperSpeed... except he gained the super-strength by way of adrenalin rushes, and there was never a guarantee he was going to have one. Mister Excitement was hyper-active, fidgeted, and his team instinctively knew that whatever they did, giving this man caffeine was a bad thing because who knew what would happen. But when the chips were down and they were captured by a real supervillain, they consciously invoked this trope, allowing Mister Excitement to save the day.

Sell 'em at the corner store, sell 'em at the five-and-dime!" and slapping Coach Z until the Coach protests "Stop it! I don't wanna die!"
** Hilariously, Strong Bad claims that he slipped Strong Sad caffeine by putting [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanka Sanka]] in his orange juice[[note]]For those who don't know, Sanka is one of the earliest brands of ''decaffeinated'' coffee. In the States, at least 97% of its caffeine must be removed in order to qualify as decaffeinated, meaning that either this was triggered by an extremely low amount of caffeine, or [[OnlySaneMan Strong Sad]] somehow missed the fact that most of his orange juice was now coffee mix[[/note]]

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' has this in the episode "Three Hundred Big Boys", where all the characters get a $300 tax refund and Fry decides to spend his on one hundred cups of coffee. His caffeine addiction grows stronger with each cup he drinks, twitching and babbling his way through the episode. Towards the end, all the characters are trapped in a burning building, but Fry is too overdosed to notice and throws back his hundredth cup. Time slows to a crawl for him, and he appears to have achieved [[DissonantSerenity caffeine enlightenment]] as he serenely carries everyone out of the building and puts out the fire. Leela remarks that she thinks they were saved by "a mysterious, orange blur".
* In one ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' episode, Psycrow develops this sort of power after drinking ridiculous amounts of espresso, becoming "Hyper Psycrow". Jim, in turn, counters him by becoming "super-mellow" through the use of an aromatherapy kit ([[LampshadeHanging one was hung on this]], as Peter questioned how a worm without a nose could use the kit). When they touch, [[AwesomenessIsVolatile the universe explodes.]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' episode "Op: UNDERCOVER" has a VillainOfTheWeek that has SuperSpeed from consuming large amounts of coffee regularly. When Numbuh Five gets a coffee overdose of her own, she gets temporary SuperSpeed as well, but notably crashes pretty quickly and realistically.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Spliced}}'': Peri experiences this as a result of consuming huge amounts of sugar in "Sugar Low".
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', Mordecai and Rigby end up buying ''double-glazed'' fritter donuts. Pops eats one and starts experiencing a sugar rush. Skips says that the only way to calm him down is to make him crash, by consuming ''MORE SUGAR''. Mordecai, Rigby, and Skips each eat a fritter themselves just to put them on the same level as Pops, but then the world started slowing down around them. Skips recommended to consume even '''MORE''' sugar. Pops, Rigby, and Mordecai started moving so fast that the world around them started to break down. Physics, Time, ''Colors'', the world started looking like an EldritchLocation.
* In the HalloweenEpisode "Nightmare on Wilson Way" in ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', a ZombieApocalypse spreads through the entire household. When Bloo is cornered in his room with Mac trying to survive, he feeds Mac several pieces of candy as a last resort, even though [[ChekhovsGun it's been established before]] that Mac gets [[ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin an extreme sugar rush]] at even the tiniest bit of sugar. [[spoiler:The sugar-crazed Mac ends up running through and knocking over the zombies, while Bloo follows and the two escape the house. This is subverted when it turns out that Bloo wasn't in any actual danger, and that it was a huge prank played on Bloo to get back at him for his Halloween tricks. After Mac starts running around outside scaring people, Bloo gets punished for feeding Mac sugar since he wasn't in any actual danger.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'': In "The Library", Grizzly tries to help Chloe stay awake so she can study for a big biochemistry exam by feeding her a bunch of candy from the vending machine. When Chloe goes hyperactive and starts running around the library at high speed, the Bears stuff themselves with candy until they can keep up with Chloe and get her back on track. While Chloe and the Bears are on their sugar rush, everything around them seems to be going in slow motion.

* Consuming a very high dose of caffeine in a short amount of time can produce a feeling of slowed passage of time and increased reaction speed. Unfortunately, the dosage necessary to produce this effect approaches, and in some cases overlaps, the dosage necessary to produce ''death'', and in any case it's much less like fictional portrayals of BulletTime and much more like just being really, really twitchy -- you can probably catch a fly in your hand without really trying, but three times out of four that "fly" you see in the corner of your eye is a hallucination. Then the caffeine wears off and you sleep for two days straight and wake up with a horrible headache and a craving for coffee.
* There have been scientific experiments which indicate that when pumped on adrenalin, perception of the world slows down sufficiently to see numbers flashing between black on red and red on black too fast for normal human perception to read. Also, experiments done on mice indicate that their perception slows down sufficiently so that they're off by about four seconds too soon while on speed when trained to push a button after ten seconds.
