* 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. --->'''Veteran''': Ex-''cel''-sior!

* In ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' Blacknail the goblin gets roaring drunk after a single mug of beer. He then passes out and wakes up with a hideous hangover. This can be somewhat explained by his small body mass.

* Sagara Sōsuke from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic''. Even though he's a soldier, he evidently almost never drinks, and therefore has very little endurance for the stuff. In one chapter of the manga, he's shown taking a sip from a small cup of amazake (a drink that has very low alcohol content), and promptly gets dead drunk, complete with the fever and loss of strength. Kaname even comes out and tells him, "you '''really''' can't hold your liquor." And even after passing out and coming to, he's ''still'' drunk, with Kaname lamenting that there's a limit to how much of a lightweight people can be. Later in the novels, he literally Can't Hold His Liquor, due to [[spoiler:debilitating internal injuries courtesy of a rifle round that relieved him of a portion of his liver]] among other things.\\\ Bonus points that Sōsuke was raised as a Muslim in Afghanistan, which Islam forbids followers to drink alcohol; which may explain his low alcohol tolerance. Well at least ''some'' Islamic values, he isn't really that religious when compared the folks who raised him. Late into season 2 of the anime, Sōsuke, [[HeroicBSOD having hit rock bottom]], spent most of an episode wandering around Hong Kong with an unopened bottle of brandy. When he finally does take a swig, he promptly spits it out and tosses the bottle in the trash, wondering aloud what people see in the stuff.

* Lilly, in ''Series/TheWalkingDead: The Game'' fanfiction ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9826124/7/What-a-Difference What a Difference]]''. She has one drink in her bedroom at the motel while Lee and Kenny are in Macon, and Carley is the one who has to deal with her. Lilly then decides to tell Carley drunkenly that she was raped ("had sex") by Danny St. John, which she was. Also, she tells Carley that her middle name is Maleen. * Jonathan Crane (a.k.a. [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Scarecrow]]) in Lauralot's fic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4679528/1/Act_Like_We_Are_Fools Act Like We Are Fools]]''. He gets falling-down, spill-all-your-secrets drunk after one glass of whiskey. Mostly because of an adverse interaction between his antipsychotics and the alcohol, but still.

* Believe it or not, Princess Peach fits too, and wine is something you should keep away from her. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer (No, this is]] ''[[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer not]]'' [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer from a fan art version.)]] In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'', they give the winner a bottle of champagne; they donít drink it in the American version, but they do in the original Japanese. Bowser even gulps the entire bottle, but seeing as heís a huge turtle-monster, he doesnít even get tipsy. Peach, on the other hand, if sheís 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.)
