User can activate their adrenal glands for as long as they want, increasing their strength, speed, reflexes, and the ability to withstand pain.




  • May be constantly active.
    • May end up killing themselves via an overdose of adrenaline, or more advanced users may also be immune to this.
  • Using adrenaline for a long period of time increases the risks of palpitations.
  • May have to limit the amount of time "amped up", which could range from seconds to minutes, to prevent harmful side effects.
  • Could potentially be only as strong and fast as they normally would be in a fight or flight situation.
  • May be unable to control the adrenaline completely.
  • The more adrenaline released, the less clear their head may work.
  • Turning off may cause severe exhaustion, and if they had sucumbed to pain during the time they were "amped up", they would have immediate, if not crippling exposure to pain.
