* In ''Literature/SpaceBeasts'', various Earth foodstuffs are dangerous to Extra Terrestrials and Magical Creatures, first of all [[IntelligentGerbil Intelligent Herons]] The Aves have extreme reactions whenever they eat strawberries, they don't get addicted, but for the male Aves they seem to get a similar effect to when you mix ecstasy with Viagra. The Male Aves get a painful long-lasting erection and also they get a fierce desire to hump anything they can get their hands on. Zander ends up assaulting his own wife in public after tasting a strawberry, and Revel rapes the Ant Girl Yin after she force-fed him some strawberry champagne; both felt extreme shame and embarrassment once they snapped out of it.
** As for [[TheFairFolk Magical Races]] (Or more specifically their half human descendants) each species of Fae has its own drug: for Elves it's wasabi, for Fairies, peanut butter, for goblins, bananas, to half human/half Fae these addictions are extremely powerful, the only way to bring them 'back down to Earth' when they give into their addiction is through physical pain, normally that means a spanking.
*** Some species of Humanimal (Specifically Prehistoric Species like Dinosaurs) can be extremely sensitive to modern foods. Rodan the Pteranodon Man finds that Chocolate has the an effect on him similar to the effect that strawberries have on male Aves. He almost gets demoted when he rapes an enemy girl soldier.

** Note, however, that the treecats don't actually have the enzymes to digest cellulose, so eating too much celery can be rather bad for them.

* ''Series/AlienNation'' has sour milk as akin to alcohol. Considering that milk contains lactose and ''does'' ferment if handled properly, this simply means that they really like kumiss or kefir, or just plain old yoghurt and cheese. Since human cells and the bacteria involved in milk spoilage produce lactic acid under anaerobic conditions this might suggest that the aliens are more like fungi than mammals and produce alcohol when exhausted.

--> '''Spike:''' If every vampire who said he was at the Crucifixion was actually there it would've been like Woodstock. I was actually at Woodstock... that was a ''weird'' gig. I fed off a flower person and I spent six hours [[ContemplatingYourHands watching my hand move.]]

** Inverted in a much later episode, "Mork and the Family Reunion", when Mindy accidentally eats [[AlienLunch an Orkan delicacy called flek]], and [[IntoxicationEnsues begins performing spontaneous gymnastics and acting, well, Mork-like]]. Later, Mindy's uncle eats some and HilarityEnsues [[CrowningMomentOfFunny big time]].

* The page quote comes from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mQzmK670yI this scene]] of Series/{{Farscape}}(“Kansas”), where the cast are visiting Earth during Halloween, and Rygel is getting high on candy. Later that episode, Rygel actually steals candy from trick-or-treating kids. In a later episode ("A Constellation of Doubt"), Rygel even comments that most species consider refined sucrose to be an addictive poison. So it's existence wasn't unknown to him, but he was unprepared for the abundance. As Earth isn't that politically correct quite yet, it's available everywhere, and Rygel is indulging himself. To humans, it’s a cheap high. To aliens who are not used to being able to pick up hundreds of calories in the palm of their hand? Alien Catnip.

* Vampires in VampireTheMasquerade can't consume drugs or alcohol, but feeding off a human with such substances in their system will affect them. Some vampires will become addicted enough to intentionally seek out intoxicated victims, although this addiction is nothing compared to their need for blood itself.

* A variation appeared in ''Series/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'', Cooper becomes addicted to a certain painkiller, nicknamed "Slappers", while being treated for injuries. The drug is no more addictive than any other painkiller to normal humans, but when used on [[ArtificialHumans In-Vitroes]] like Coop, the addiction rate is close to 82% for a single dose. He also meets an In-Vitroe prostitute addicted to the same drug, and Colonel [=McQueen=] is a recovered addict himself.

* The worms in WesternAnimation/MenInBlack are addicted to coffee as if it was a hard liquor; even to the point that they would suffer from withdrawal if the coffee machine ever broke, and in an episode it is revealed, coffee is reserved to only the elite in their planet.
