* Variation: the indie table-top RPG ''TabletopGame/DontRestYourHead'' had Madness Disciplines and Exhaustion Talents. They were powered by insanity and getting tired, respectively.

* A not so glorious example is Jeremias José, a Brazilian man who got arrested after causing chaos while drunk and while [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsdnufGPG1A interviewed in the police station]] spoke in a TestosteronePoisoning way ("I'll kill even the deputy! It was the Hellhound who serve us booze!") that quickly became a FountainOfMemes in the country.



* Do not ever try this trope out in real life with sports that involve any degree of physical risk, especially shooting sports. Redneck's last words apply fully.

** This was either [[ShoutOut shouted out to]] or [[{{Homage}} homaged]] by the Drunken Master style in ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire''. Oddly, despite drinking a hell of a lot of bottles that Henpecked Hou gives you, you never die of alcohol poisoning. [[RuleOfFun That wouldn't be fun.]]

** China also gave us Zhang Xu, a master of Chinese cursive (grass script) calligraphy that does his best work when drunk. Along with the poet Li Bai, he was counted as one of the Eight Immortals of the Wine Cup, for fairly obvious reasons.

* Creator/StephenKing could be considered an example, as many of his best works have been written when he was either drunk or coked up, and he's admitted to being a big fan of LSD in the sixties.

* Creator/StephenKing could be considered an example, as many of his best works have been written when he was either drunk or coked up, and he's admitted to being a big fan of LSD in the sixties. He once stated that he really likes ''Literature/{{Cujo}}'', so it's a shame that he has absolutely no recollection of writing it.

* Professional {{Poker}} players sometimes play high stakes poker while buzzed or drunk. It could conceivable make it more difficult to read your tells and make you more aggressive player, but it could also have equally negative effects.

* A ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode had Homer forsaking his usual reckless drink-induced behavior. Things got so calm it drove Marge around the bend to where she entered a demolition derby to break the monotony. When she got into serious peril, Homer came to the rescue, first downing some beer like Popeye eating his spinach.

* Zui Quan, or "Drunken Fist," is a real concept within various Chinese martial arts in which the practitioner uses stumbling and swaying movements that are supposed to make him look drunk. Supposedly some masters actually practiced the martial art while legitimately drunk, but in reality this would make it much more difficult.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Condemned}} 2: Bloodshot'', Ethan has become an alcoholic. When using a firearm, his arm wavers and jitters heavily while looking through the iron sights. After draining a bottle of whiskey, though, his DT's disappear and his aim is dead-on for the next several minutes. It ceases to be a problem close to the end of the game, after a bizarre dream sequence in which [[spoiler:he ''fights and kills the AnthropomorphicPersonification of his alcoholism'']].

* Brad Wong in ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive 3''. Not only does he use the Drunken Fist style, he keeps a flask handy and even drinks from it during a fight. In fact, his Story Mode on [=DOA3=] is about him searching for Genra/Omega because he was told that was the name of some ''alcohol''.
