Run like a turtle has never run before.
― In-game description[src]
Adrenaline Burst allows Bentley to temporarily get a burst of speed, moving up to twice as fast as sprinting speed, at the cost of some Gadget Meter. It is best used for a getaway, similar to Guttural Roar and the Smoke Bomb.
In Sly 2 and Sly 3, the move has to be assigned to a button (either , , or ) on the Gadget Grid in order to use it. In Sly 2, Bentley's feet run in a cartoonish rolling fashion. In Sly 3, Bentley's wheelchair activates jet engines that appear to be repeatedly activated in order to achieve the burst of speed.
In Thieves in Time, the move is performed by double tapping . Here, a massive flame of engine exhaust covers the back of the wheelchair and propels Bentley forward.
- Since Bentley is moving faster than a normal pace during Adrenaline Burst, he can still alert otherwise unaware guards to his presence if he zips by them.
