* In ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', it turns out that Doc Brown really can't hold his liquor -- he passes out after drinking a single shot of whiskey. And before passing out from drinking said glass of whiskey, he manages to get plastered just by ''holding it under his nose''.

Ironically in the script, he actually ''can'' hold his liquor, and then passed out as Marty comes to get him.

* Oddly Peach and Daisy are this in ''Webcomic/The3LittlePrincesses'' despite having played their DrinkingGame previously. Rosalina handles Whacka Juice quite well despite never having drank in her life.



* They don’t have this in the American version, but in ''[[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario Land 2]]'', there’s a penguin-like enemy that throws beer in Wario’s face, which causes him to get plastered rather quickly. (Meaning Wario fits this Trope to a T, seeing as he’s a big guy, and beer is, at most, 5% alcohol.) Incidentally, the American version has the bird throw a bomb at him; clearly, the censors think bombs are okay, but drunkenness is not.
* Believe it or not, Princess Peach fits too, and wine is something you should keep away from her. (No, this is ''not'' from a fan art version.) In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'', they give the winner a bottle of champagne; they don’t drink it in the American version, but they do in the original Japanese. Bowser even gulps the entire bottle, but seeing as he’s a huge turtle-monster, he doesn’t even get tipsy. Peach, on the other hand, if she’s the winner, does the same thing, and gets seriously soused. (Champagne is about 12% alcohol content, by the way; this scene comes as a shock to any American player.)

* [[spoiler:Hanyuu]] from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' can [[{{Synchronization}} taste]] what [[spoiler:Rika]] drinks. She [[DoesNotLikeSpam hates alcohol]] so [[spoiler:Rika]] often drinks wine (or eats spicy foods) in order to punish her.

* One common side effect of giving blood is to have one's tolerance significantly lowered, therefore it is not uncommon for regular drinkers to get drunk off only a few drinks after.

* One common side effect of giving blood is to have one's tolerance significantly lowered, therefore it is not uncommon for regular drinkers to get drunk off only a few drinks after. This is why blood donors are instructed to wait several hours or eat a full meal after giving blood before drinking alcohol.

** Again in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'': While having a party at Avengers Tower, Thor and Captain America are drinking with several World War II veterans. Thor and Cap are taking shots of Asgardian mead he says is "not meant for mortal men." [[Creator/StanLee One of the vets]] boldly retorts that neither was Omaha Beach[[note]]One of the American landing zones during the invasion of Normandy, and a bloody hell on earth[[/note]] and insists on joining in. One cut (and one shot) later we see him being carted off blitzed out of his mind, with another of his buddies catatonic in the background.
