* WebVideo/RhettAndLink [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dFMCf8zi5s ate Ghost Peppers]], the hottest peppers they could find at that time, for one challenge. Their viewers helpfully informed them that the Carolina Reaper was actually the hottest pepper in the world, not the Ghost Pepper, but Rhett and Link, by their own admission, quietly ignored them because they didn't want to go through ''that'' torment... until one especially helpful viewer mailed them two Carolina Reapers with a letter telling them, "Don't forget you do have at least one child named after you." Cue the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb-QVfwCmYg Carolina Reaper challenge video]], where Rhett and Link look like they're ready to go to the gallows even before eating the peppers themselves.

The spiciness of food, especially of chili peppers and Scotch bonnets, is measured on the Scoville scale. The number of Scoville Heat Units a food has is equal to as many grams of sugar syrup one gram of that food needs to be mixed with, evenly, before its "hotness" is undetectable by a taster. Basically, the more capsaicin a food item has, the hotter it tastes. Extracted pure capsaicin tops the scale with a Scoville rating of up to 16,000,000. While the scale is generally considered scientifically inaccurate, it still remains a pretty good (if imprecise) way to comparatively judge just how hot a certain pepper actually is.

* While ''what'', exactly, she used wasn't made clear, Comicbook/{{X 23}} once loaded up lunch from a street vendor in Madripoor with something that even had Comicbook/{{Gambit}} — the Rajin' Cajun himself — doing a double-take. Laura nonchalantly explains that she prefers spicy foods because of the bland and flavorless diet she was raised on by the Facility, and no doubt her HealingFactor boosts her tolerance.

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': Page Turner likes her food ''spicy''. She's mentioned as freaking other ponies out by snacking on jalapeños, has eaten and enjoyed red habaneros, and is looking forward to trying hotter peppers like Phantom Peppers (AKA Bhut jolokia, the Ghost peppers) and Dragon's Breath (at the time of writing, the hottest pepper on record). [[spoiler: It is later revealed that to Changelings, anger has a “spicy” flavor to it. And since she feeds off Night Blade’s anger mixed with love, Page has developed a taste for that spicy flavor.]]

Compare GargleBlaster and KlatchianCoffee for alcoholic and caffeinated drinks respectively. [[ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Woe betide us if they are ever combined]], though BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce is often an essential ingredient in a HideousHangoverCure (or it might simply be used as one by itself).[[note]]However, in real life a glass of beer can help take the edge off a dose of BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce because capsaicin is soluble in alcohol. But not water. Stronger alcohols therefore provide more relief, though one may wish to spit or use something like Listerine mouthwash, which also contains alcohol, to remove the stuff. As capsaicin is also fat-soluble, an alternative is fatty dairy products like whole milk and cheese (But avoid swallowing for the really hot stuff or it will just move the problem downstream.)[[/note]] Sometimes shares the corrosive effects of HollywoodAcid, generally indicated by its [[AteTheSpoon dissolving a teaspoon]] or similar. A very common form of MasochistsMeal. Will likely result in a FireBreathingDiner. As you may have guessed by now, in both real life and in fiction peppers and sauces of this class tend to have NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast.

* In ''FanFic/XMenNewClass'' Julian and Santo challenge each other to eat a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinidad_moruga_scorpion Trinidad Moruga Scorpion]] pepper — at the time the story was written the hottest pepper in the world — in front of the entire student body, and both begin to panic at the thought of actually having to go through with it.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': In the episode "Mr. Boynton's Barbeque", Mr. Boynton prepares a "mild" hot sauce for his cookout as he believes his usual sauce would be too much for his guests. [[spoiler: Miss Brooks and Walter Denton cook up a blazing mixture of tabasco and horseradish to spring on Miss Brooks' rival Miss Enright. However, a mix-up results in Miss Brooks receiving her own doctored dish. No matter, Miss Brooks can hold her hot sauce. She eats calmly and remains a DeadpanSnarker throughout. The same can't be said be Miss Enright and Mr. Conklin. They eat Mr. Boynton's supposedly minor sauce and run away practically screaming for water!]]

* The ''WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun'' sketch ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RX-rZKCU12g Hot & Saucey]]'' combines this with SerialEscalation, culminating in [[spoiler: a sauce that, if eaten, would wipe out all life on Earth]]. Other sauces shown kill the eater in messy ways, and another goes back in time to kill their grandfather and prevent their birth. The latter doesn't quite work, the drinker disappears from the timeline but returns later with a case of GenderBender.

For the sake of comparison, at the bottom of the scale is the bell pepper, with a Scoville rating of 0; the jalapeño pepper has a Scoville rating of 2500-8000; the tabasco pepper is rated at 30,000 to 50,000, and the habanero pepper has a rating of 100,000 to 350,000. The crown for "hottest chili pepper" has, in recent years, been in a state of flux. Up to February of 2011, it was the Ghost Chili. The Ghost Chili claim was usurped by the Naga Viper Chili, which, at 1,359,000 is more than 1/4 the hotness of police-grade pepper spray (5,000,000). In March of that year, the [[http://thepepperseed.com/peppers/the-worlds-hottest-chilli-pepper-trinidad-scorpion-butch-t/ the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T chili,]] which clocks in at 1,463,700 SHU unseated the Naga Viper. In 2012, the [[http://thepepperseed.com/peppers/trinidad-scorpion-moruga-the-worlds-hottest-chilli-pepper the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion,]] which hits a blistering 2,009,231 SHU, unseated the Butch T. Then, in 2013, The Scorpion was trounced by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carolina_Reaper the Carolina Reaper,]] which can peak over 2,200,000 SHU. Capsaicin, the chemical that gives peppers their hotness, has a rating of 16,000,000 in its pure form.

* The point of WebVideo/HotOnes is to feed guests a succession of spicy wings with increasingly difficult questions to go with them. In fact, a variation of the pictured Blair's Mega Death Sauce was the hottest sauce for seasons two and three.

** There are a few other candidates. The 'Fusion', restaurant, for example, serves incredibly spicy food and even [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/697 has a waiver of indemnification,]] and Sydney makes a [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1883 "mean weapons-grade spaghetti sauce."]]' Ultimately, though, this is one of Sydney [[MeaningfulName Scoville's]] schticks, so expect it to crop up a lot.
