* In ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'', Mordecai tried Bunny Hugs (a cocktail made from gin and absinthe), which hit him like a freight train. A flashback showed a disheveled Mordecai slurring his speech and [[HoYay fawning on Viktor]]. He hasn't touched alcohol since.

* The Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} running joke mentioned under Comics above is referenced in ''WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC'', in which Spider-Man usually orders milk at the bar, and when he ''does'' drink he spends the next few episodes in a drunken stupor babbling parodies of other blockbuster movies, although it's mainly because the other heroes constantly spike his drinks in order to enjoy said parodies.

* England in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' (English dub version). After one drink, he's passed out on the bar, wondering whether he's Catholic or Protestant, declaring himself "The United Bloody Kingdom" and announcing that he can "...[[{{Malaproper}} hild his locker]]" better than America, whining/crying over America not accepting his friendship because of their shared hatred of France, and bawling over how the friendship refusal is "total bollocks!" [[spoiler:The next day, England is under a green blanket, shivering and wondering why the light won't shut up]].

* In ''Series/TheHoneymooners'', Alice claimed that Ralph once got a three-day hangover from a slice of rum cake. (That's actually impossible, because prepared rum cake has no alcohol in it. What's in the small amount of rum that is used to make it evaporates when it is baked.) Regardless, when Ralph wanted to drink a bottle of wine simply to prove that he could, Alice poured it down the drain when he wasn't looking and replaced it with grape juice; Ralph and Norton ''still'' got drunk from drinking it. (The fact that it happened to Norton was no surprise either, seeing as Trixie claimed that he "got tipsy just by reading the labels".)

* Used as TheStinger gag of ''StarWarsDownunder''. After thirty minutes of battling the forces of the evil Darth Drongo just to [[INeedAFreakingDrink get his hands on a nice cold one]], Jedi Knight Merve Bushwacker passes out after only one beer.

** 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.

* Roger Rabbit in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' literally [[HighPressureEmotion becomes a steam whistle]] after a single shot of bourbon. The reaction is demonstrated early on in the movie, and then exploited by Eddie to create a distraction so that he and Roger can escape from the villains.
