Must Have Caffeine:
Prosecutor Godot (goh-doh) from is obsessed with coffee, it being his "gimmick" of sorts. He often uses obscure coffee metaphors when describing his case, drinks up to seventeen cups in one trial day, does Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spit Takes, and throws his coffee at Phoenix when things aren't looking so good. It's also worth noting that it was the aroma of coffee in his room what woke him up from his .
Convenient Coma It also ends up being an important symbol at the end of the game, as when he drinks his last cup Phoenix drinks one as well, indicating reconciliation.
The old man near the start of and remakes is very grumpy until he's had his coffee, and Pokémon Red and Blue wouldn't let you pass until he's had it.
In the original Japanese version, he was drunk.
In one point in the story of , you befriend an innkeeper, who lets you stay the night at her inn. When you wake up, she asks Super Mario RPG Mario how he's feeling, and you have two ways you can respond:
In , Dr. Fred's hands are jittering constantly since he's on a continuous caffeine high. In fact, he drinks coffee all the time to avoid falling asleep, nightmares and sleepwalking, and hasn't slept for ten years!
Day Of The Tentacle When you need him to fall asleep to solve a puzzle, all you have to do is slip him some decaf.
Francis York Morgan in relies upon coffee not just for a quick pick-me-up, but to predict the future. Hence the Deadly Premonition meme, "F...K! In the coffee!"
Coffee and caffeinated soft drinks also refill York's sleep meter, so it's possible for him to go the entire game without ever going to sleep outside of a cutscene. Then again, there are consequences to staying up too late...
In , the Wizard stays up until 2 AM, and is obsessed with stargazing. Not surprisingly, his favorite items are all coffee-related.
Harvest Moon: Animal Parade Hawke in the series has black coffee on his 'likes' list. Advance Wars It's otherwise not mentioned in-game.
An old DOS game Toxic Bunny featured a, well, bunny... obsessed with "weaponry and caffeine". Seriously, it's difficult to find a plot-related speech that doesn't mention coffee.
Halo: Dr. Catherine Halsey's personal journal is peppered with amusing one-liners one would expect to hear from Kathryn Janeway, including "Need more DARK coffee. Why can't they grow decent coffee on this planet?!", "No work before coffee" ( with all the notes preceding it scratched out), and "She will answer for making me drink decaf." The word "decaf" is underlined in an angry squiggle.
This could be true for the Scout in Team Fortress 2. In an early trailer, his motto simply reads "Too. Much. Caffeine." Plus, two of his unlockable weapons are energy drinks.
Forget the Scout. The Meet the Sniper video shows him, as the hours go by, drinking cup after cup after cup of coffee. Where else do you think the Jarate comes from?
Averted. It's decaf. Observe the video at around one minute in. The coffee pot has an orange handle.
It does still explain the Jarate, though.
Some casual flash games use coffee as their mode of energy-boost.
The fan game Space Quest Incinerations opens with Roger Wilco stumbling out of a broom closet in search of coffee. It isn't until he's caffeinated himself that he notices half the kitchen is missing thanks to his ship being under attack.
In the browser game , superheroes rely on sugar and caffeine to stay awake while adventuring at night.
Twilight Heroes There's a twist on this in . In the first game, Shantae met a number of Shantae: Risky's Revenge zombies, but they didn't attack her on sight and were as intelligent and as coherent as any human. Risky's Revenge reveals the reason for this: the zombies drink coffee, and the coffee makes them smart. If they go too long without coffee, however, they degenerate into mindlessly violent zombies. So in their case, caffeine really is a necessity.
