* [[TheWho Keith Moon]], often considered one of the greatest drummers ever thanks to his hyperactive, flowing drumming style. Although he also had a large amount of Deconstruction/Subversion in the mix; At one point he was so high on animal tranqs that he passed out mid-show (leading to the now infamous Scott Halpin incident), and another time Pete Townshend became so infuriated with the rampant drug use that he flushed all of Moon's drugs down the toilet. Moon died due to a severe drug overdose - he had been mixing handfuls of prescription antidepressants with alcohol.

* 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.

* ''Literature/CodexAlera'' has an unnamed bosun serving under the pirate Captain Demos. While dealing with some monsters, Demos notes that the bosun is a far more dangerous and deadly fighter when he is drunk. Unfortunately, the man ran out of whiskey and hasn't resupplied.

* 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.
