* Maginx the Brewmaster in ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' has the ability to dodge attacks and occasionally deliver a critical strike with his drunken fighting technique. He can also toss alcohol at enemies, slowing them down and causing most of their attacks to miss. In ''DotA2'', it's stated in his lore he earned his title by drinking and fighting the old Brewmaster for nine days straight.

* Spinda from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is reminiscent of a drunken master by the way it constantly wobbles and seems like it's about to fall over.

* Spinda Played with in regards of the Spindas, from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Although no word confirming about alcohol influence anywhere ([[FrothyMugsOfWater or any other liquids, for the matter]]), their movements are very reminiscent of a drunken master master, by the way it they constantly wobbles wobble and seems seem like it's they're about to fall over.over. [[ConfusionFu They even learn Dizzy Punch and Tether Dance, to spread the wobbliness to the enemy side!]]
** And then teased about in ''[[PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Explorers of Sky]]'', by making Spinda own a bar, and put his wobbliness in good use by putting him in charge of the [[FrothyMugsOfWater juice cocktails]]. [[BoozeBasedBuff Which permanently boost your team's stats]].

** In episode 4 of ''ChikyuuSentaiFiveman'', the villains put alcohol in the water supply, causing the entire city to get hopelessly drunk, including Remi / Five Yellow. Since Remi is a kung fu master, she's familiar with the drunken fist. Instead of letting her drunkenness disable her, she grabs a jug of wine in order to get *even drunker*, giving her superhuman fighting abilities. She then proceeds to lay the smack down on both the MonsterOfTheWeek and the DarkActionGirl ''without transforming''[[note]]Her actress, Ryo Narushima, is a trained stuntwoman and a member of the same agency the team's suit actors come from. The episode was written as a way for her to show off her ability to do her own stunts.[[/note]].

** Worth at least a token mention is ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'''s Kazu, who uses Drunken Boxing as his primary fighting style (like ''Gekiranger'', the series places a heavy emphasis on martial arts). This is believed to be one of the reasons Saban didn't use ''Dairanger''[='s=] suit footage when they made ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. In ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', anyone who uses the Kirinranger key (usually Luka) likewise [[PowerCopying gets to use Drunken Boxing]].

* There is a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' prestige class based on this trope. It's called the Drunken Boxer. In 3.5, it's actually called the Drunken Master. It also includes a ShoutOut to Creator/JackieChan, as along with the usual effects (unpredictable moves, dulled sensations of pain) the prestige class also grants ImprovisedWeapon Proficiency. At high levels, drinking alcohol grants you a ''[[BoozeFlamethrower breath weapon]].'' Beware going too far with your ordinary monk levels, though, as the 11th (in addition to making it impossible to get the breath weapon in a non-Epic campaign) makes it impossible to get drunk[[note]]At 11th you get Diamond Body, which makes you immune to ''all'' poisons -- and booze is technically poison[[/note]].
** TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}} includes this as a Monk Archetype. Monks in PF perform KiAttacks, and Drunken Masters can fortify their ki pool by drinking alcohol. Since one monk ability is spending ki to heal damage, a Drunken Master can effectively used booze as healing potions.

* In the Fishman Island arc of ''Manga/OnePiece'', we're introduced to Hyozou, the best swordsman on the island, who always has a gourd flask at his side. When he gets drunk, his cohorts think he is useless, but then its revealed that Hyozou fights at his best when he's like that.

However, it comes at the terrifying price of [[OmnicidalManiac losing his sense of judgement over what to cut down.]]

* Bachhus Groh in ''Manga/FairyTail'' becomes a much more proficient opponent when he's drunk, and is the counterpart to bottomless boozer Cana, whose drinking has the more realistic effect of rendering her totally witless.
