* Mae from ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'', by her own admission, gets "woozy on cough syrup." At a party in the woods shortly after she returns to Possum Springs, Mae gets completely wasted on three cups of watered-down beer, complete with slurring speech. The dialogue choices during her drunken stupor are all presented as crisp and eloquent, but what she actually says is slurred and wobbly.

** And Blackadder isn't alone there. Queenie declares she has the stomach of a concrete elephant, and takes one drink. Cut to the next morning, and she's plastered along with everyone else, having completely forgotten what she'd been meaning to do (kill everyone for pissing her off).

** Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy has Rocket suffering from this trope. He lays his emotional trauma (namely from getting vivisected and reconstructed over and over again) bare for all to see while threatening to blast everybody in the face with his gun for laughing at him. Justified seeing as he's a smaller life form, so alcohol would affect him faster and harder.

* Women as a general rule are much more susceptible to the effects of alcohol than men, due to body composition, size and different enzymes between male and female bodies.

* Women as a general rule are much more susceptible to the effects of alcohol than men, due to body composition, size and different enzymes between male and female bodies. As a bit of a trade-off however, women tend to sober up faster than men.

Is very common in East Asian works. Go research "Asian Flush Syndrome" on The Other Wiki for more. While "passed out at one sip" is an exaggeration, it's an exaggeration of something very real, since unlike Medeval Europe, East Asia had the option of boiling water for tea as way to have clean drinking fluid (tea, for this reason, was often praised as healing and divine in literature of the First Millennium and before because the world had yet to develop germ theory, even if traditional Chinese medicine ran on trial and error in many cases, an early scientific method), and the genes that cause alcohol-- a mild toxin, which is why you get drunk-- to convert into something more toxic at a higher rate, and not be metabolised by the body but stay around until excreted out, remain in the populations of East Asia, unlike in white/other European people, where they were mostly bred out by natural selection (those who couldn't drink the mead would die off of water-borne illness, as fermentation was the way, unknowingly, bacteria in the water was killed by the process, and they had no reason to boil water until obtaining tea from China, which they didn't realise China existed until later).

In RealLife NEVER encourage someone who has turned red from liquor to drink more. It is not funny--it is quite potentially fatal.

* On and episode of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', Sam, Dean and fellow hunter Garth sample the product of a local brewery and Garth starts to feel the effects before finishing his first beer. Granted, slender Garth probably weighs less than 130 pounds.

* Alcohol is one Cress LaVeda's weakness from Tales of Faith. The moment she even takes a whiff of this, Cress will act like a complete short-tempered drunk. Unless you prepared a bottle of plain water, prepare to be violently attacked by Cress.

* In ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'', this is apparently the case with Tallest Purple, as he at one point gets deliriously drunk after a mere two-and-a-half drinks. By contrast, Tallest Red (who has been drinking just as long at that point) is still totally sober.
