Chuck Wiki

Atroxium is a nerve gas which, when inhaled, leaves its victims in a terrified nightmare state that they can only be released from them by taking the antidote. The gas was invented through years of self testing by Dr. Stanley Wheelwright and was seen in Chuck Versus the Aisle of Terror.

The first time the drug is used was when Dr. Wheelwright tests it on a Volkoff Industries's guard when the guard questions him about being in a restricted area. The assault of the guard turns out to a demonstration of the drug to Mary Bartowski who agrees that it's time to sell the drug.

As it transpires, however, Mary thought the drug too dangerous to be on the market and arranges for CIA Agent Charles Carmichael to purchase the gas from Wheelwright.


Presumably a play on the word "atrocious".
