* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'''s Citadel DLC, your shore leave meeting with Ashley Williams involves a drinking contest with her. Sadly, very little about the situation changes if you're in a romance with her.

** Another one comes the morning after the party, where some of the crew want to take the (badly hungover) Joker to a shooting range so he can practice marksmanship. Joker agrees only if someone can beat him in a drinking contest involving his own homemade concoction, which he describes as "three parts horse choker, one part mouthwash". The contestant only manages two swallows before giving up.

* In ''[[Manga/AhMyGoddess Oh My Goddess!]]'', Belldandy ends up in one with either Chihiro (in the manga) or Sayoko (in the ''Flights Of Fancy'' TV series), and doesn't so much as burp (which could be [[JustifiedTrope somewhat justified]]-- she's based on a goddess from the mythology of the ancient Norsemen, who were infamous for their drink). It's not until after, when Keiichi gives her a can of cola to wash away the taste, does [[IntoxicationEnsues Intoxication Ensue]].
* In ''MaisonIkkoku'', Mrs. Ichinose intentionally threw a drinking contest in her youth to get her husband to marry her.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': In Whiskey Peak, Zoro and Nami give up after consecutively beating 13, or 15, respectively, opponents. And even then they're faking.

* Another example of rigged drinking contest was in ''EarthFinalConflict''. Boone used one of these to challenge a local into revealing some information. When Lili started arguing with him about it later, he revealed his alien implant made it impossible for him to get drunk.

* In ''WKRPInCincinnati'', as a public service segment against drunk driving, the station had Johnny Fever and Venus Flytrap take 1 drink every 15 minutes, on the air, as a police officer measured their reflexes. Venus reacted as expected. His reflexes became slower and his behaviour more intoxicated. Johnny, on the other hand, got faster reflexes as he drank more.

* In ''Fanfic/BringerOfDeath'' a group of fratboys [[MuggingTheMonster provokes Android 17 and hits on 18]] at a club. Instead of killing them, 17 challenges them to this... As in he'd drink as much beer as all of them put together until he or all of them passed out, the loser paying for everyone, [[{{Troll}} fully knowing that Doctor Gero had made him immune to the effects of alcohol]]. Considering it was the Androids, they still got away easily.

* {{Redwall}} features one in ''Lord Brocktree'', where a young haremaid goes up against the Scottish-accented mountain hare King Bucko Bigbones twice her size. She wins by virtue of taking a dainty sip for every three huge gulps he takes of strong cider, leaving her the winner by default (Bucko was used to large, brawny opponents who also thought the winner was determined by volume).
