Baccaran

Baccaran is mysterious drug of unknown composition, magical steroid and intelligence enhancer that also renders the user more vulnerable to magical illusions.

Curiously, despite this side effect, it is not actually an hallucinogen, and it is unclear why it has this particular and unusual effect on users. Baccaran is known to be cause great pain if overdosed on, the result of over-stressing the body with its strength enhancing qualities.

Gill Man DNA

Gill Man DNA is a powerful mutagen that is incorrectly believed by its creator to be a steroid.

Ingested in the form of steam, Gill Man DNA is derived from mutated fish DNA, itself engineered from several different fish species and then further warped by exposure to the magical energies of the Sunnydale Hellmouth.

Although it does increase the swimming abilities of those who take it, the manner in which this is achieved is by slowly mutating them into amphibious fishlike humanoids (it is not clear whether they can breathe underwater as well as in the open air).

Luhix

Made from a plant that grows only in the outer plane known as the Abyss, Luhix is extremely painful to take – it is most often added directly to the blood stream via a self-inflicted wound, which is then bound up to prevent the drug from leaking out, and its immediate effect is agonizing.

However, for those users able to persevere through this pain, Luhix grants enhancements to physical and mental abilities for an hour or two, as well as an immunity to almost all kinds of pain. The one exception to this is the pain caused by Luhix itself – taking a second dose while the first is in effect, or indeed, for up to a day later, is even more painful, sometimes even to a fatal degree.

QuixHeal

An analgesic and healing promoter, QuixHeal is a trade name of a human-specific healing agent that assists the body in repairing the damage done by physical injuries.

QuixHeal can be combined with other painkillers and even consumed with alcohol with no ill-effects. At higher doses, it tends to cause drowsiness and deep sleep, but it continues to work on repairing the body even while the user is sound asleep.

The effects of Quixheal are limited, and it is not a substitute for major surgery. However, it will fix most bruises, scrateches, grazes, sprains and the like, up to hairline bone fractures. Anything more serious will require proper medical attention.

Venom

One of the most addictive and dangerous of steroids, Venom first appeared on the streets of Gotham City early in the self-appointed mission of the Batman. In fact, Batman himself was one of its most prominent users for a time.

Unfortunately, in addition to enhancing strength to a superhuman degree, Venom had a number of side-effects, including muscular dystrophy (when not in use) and a capacity to addict users stronger than most drugs short of crack. Batman quickly realised this, and went cold turkey, a process that took about a month (and which was accompanied by incredible physical pain and vivid hallucinations). He never used the drug again, although villains such as Bane and Lex Luthor did.
