* ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' features the "periodic test of skill" variant, with the skill being psychokinesis. The rules: Use your Psychokinetic powers to tip the bottle of [[GargleBlaster Ol' Janx Spirit]] into your opponent's glass, which they then have to drink. The trick is that Ol' Janx Spirit suppresses telekinetic powers, so once you start losing, you tend to ''keep'' losing.

The combo of alcohol and sex is why Ford Prefect always plays to lose.

* Done fairly early on in ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'', when a tavernkeeper trying to avoid a brawl gets the protagonists to do this instead. Among other things, it turns out that Sanzo's even more homicidal when he's drunk and that Hakkai does not get drunk, period.

* ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', second series, episode "Beer", features Edmund Blackadder trying to [[TwoTimerDate simultaneously have a quiet dinner]] with his fanatically religious relatives in one room, and have a bawdy drinking contest with some friends in the next room down the hall.

* At one time a Russian agent was ordered to challenge a Turkish official to a drinking contest in order to get information out of him when drunk. Despite the fact that the Russian knew his employers were [[YouHaveFailedMe unforgiving]] it was the Turk that won and got information out of him. This was kind of an alcoholic DuelToTheDeath.

* ''HarvestMoon [[SuperTitle64Advance 64]]'' has a drinking contest. In fact to marry one of the bachelorettes you need to beat her in the contest. It's [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl harder]] than it sounds.

** When the GodEmperor of Mankind came to [[GrimUpNorth Fenris]] to collect the lost primarch [[BoisterousBruiser Leman Russ]] to lead the [[SpaceWolf Space Wolves]], Russ refused to pay homage until this stranger had bested him in a series of trials. First there was an eating contest, and then a drinking contest, both of which Russ won (This is pretty much the only time that Imperial dogma will admit to the Emperor losing at '''anything'''). But the Emperor rebuked him by calling the primarch nothing but a glutton and a drunkard, which led to the third contest: physical strength. One blow from a PowerFist later and Leman Russ was out cold, and the next day he laughingly agreed to follow the Emperor's command, all the while claiming that his headache was due to his hangover.

** The Space Wolves are often known to participate in these as a result of that meeting. Of course, given the accelerated metabolism of the average Space Marine, the victory criteria is reversed: The winner is the first person to ''get'' drunk (Which generally involves more alcohol than a normal human could drink in a month... and live).

Of course, given the accelerated metabolism of the average Space Marine, the victory criteria is reversed: The winner is the first person who can drink enough alcohol fast enough to ''get'' drunk (Which generally involves more alcohol than a normal human could drink in a month... and live).drunk. The quantities involved are usually sufficient to kill groups of standard humans outright.

A Drinking Contest is typically dreaded by a character who CantHoldHisLiquor, and may be subject to exploitation by one who NeverGetsDrunk. Compare EatingContest.
