clutch

adjective; zero derivation
what you need when you need it
 
Comes from a culture where instant things are appreciated, where the moments that happen right then can be captured. Also comes from sports where “clutch” plays can be the difference between W and L. If we say that sports is the origin of this connotation, then credit must be given to the commentators, the voices of God that preside over every event making sure that nothing important (or clutch) gets glossed over.
Etymology : From “clutch” which originally means to hold tight or grab quickly. Translates to current meaning because people can metaphysically grab or seize moments of time with their actions or words.
