* Orma, the female Orc Barbarian of the party in WebVideo/HeroesAndHalfwits is such a lightweight that she gets knocked out with even the smallest of drinks. A problem exacerbated by the fact that she ''never'' turns down a drink and tends to be a [[IdentityAmnesia very different person when she wakes up.]]

* When Wrestling/KevinNash was running Wrestling/{{TNA}} Impact, he only allowed [[Wrestling/LisaMarieVaron Tara]] and ODB, who were feuding at the time over Tara being a "[[RealWomenDontWearDresses diva]]", their hardcore grudge match to take place if they each drank a six pack of beer first. ODB seemed unaffected but Tara, who didn't even know what liquor was, was at an insurmountable disadvantage.[[/folder]]

* In ''Series/LesGuignolsdelinfo'', the puppet from François Bayrou. He can get drunk on non-alcoholic beer (or other harmless, alcoholic-looking beverages found in France). Once, trying just one draught of ''panaché'' (shanty) put him in an alcoholic coma. Naturally, sketches often paired him with [[TheAlcoholic hard-drinker]] Jean-Louis Borloo.

* During JakeRoberts' "born-again Christian" gimmick and subsequent feud with JerryLawler over Roberts' battle with alcoholism, Roberts once staggered to the ring, bottle in hand and appeared to be highly intoxicated. GorillaMonsoon -- not knowing what was going on (or perhaps he did) -- came out to get Roberts and usher him back to the dressing room, but Roberts eventually managed to climb into the ring, where Lawler was insulting Roberts and calling him a drunk. This was, of course, averted, as the perfectly-sober Roberts eventually grabbed Lawler and DDT'ed him, before pouring liquor on the loud-mouthed King's face.

* People on antidepressants and anti-anxylitics find out pretty quickly that they can no longer tolerate liquor. People on [=MAOIs=] should completely avoid liquor because of this. [=SSRIs=] merely make alcohol absorption more efficient.

* ZigZagged in the drinking contest minigame in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher''. The trick is that the game tracks Geralt's drunkenness by the alcohol content of what he's drinking, but only tracks the ''number of drinks'' for his opponent. Drink only beer and you're golden, but if you drink wine or hard liquor you'll typically have the magically mutated monster hunter getting drunk under the table by some random fat guy in a bar.

* Double Subverted in {{Film/Thor}}. Erik Selvig can definitely hold his liquor, but when a mortal gets into a drinking contest with the Viking God of {{Boisterous Bruiser}}s... yeah, he loses.

* Jack accuses [[Franchise/MassEffect Shepard]] of this when s\he passes out after one drink on Omega. Subverted because Jack might have been with Shepard in the toilets after drinking three of the strongest legal drinks, then smuggled Batarian ale, then ''radioactive'' Krogan liquor. Subverted further in that the drink was poisoned.
