* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.)

* 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.
