* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', Hershel's SuperpoweredAlterEgo Roy comes out only when Hershel has some whiskey. This appears to be part of the procedure that turned Hershel from a [[PowerIncontinence Powered]] into a Super. Subverted in that no addition is involved (and Hershel isn't a big drinker anyway). Also, after turning into Roy, whiskey doesn't have any further effect, except keep Roy active. In Year 2, Roy meets a freshman, who ''loves'' beer to the point of obsession. Ironically, it turns out that his SuperStrength is far more affected by hard liquor than beer. The kid gets stronger the more alcohol he consumes, but he also gets more drunk and can't sustain it for long.

* Ghouls from [[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade Vampire: The Masquerade]] which are powered by vampire blood that they need to ingest on a regular (monthly *at least*) basis become addicted. Vampire blood is crazy-addictive but you need to ingest a whole pint of it to actually gain unaging immortality (assuming you keep consuming it) and super-strength.
