* ''LightNovel/SaiunkokuMonogatari'' has a character named To Eigetsu who is [[TheSmartGuy intelligent, quiet, and mild-mannered]], until he gets drunk. Then his SplitPersonality Yougetsu takes over and starts [[BadAss kicking ass and taking names]].

* 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 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]].

* Bowlers often think they need to drink for peak performance. Similarly to darts or other games/sports played in bars or buildings that contain bars.

When somebody consumes alcohol, they become ''much'' more proficient at their discipline of choice, be it fighting, studying, writing... you name it. If it involves skill, that skill will be magnified tenfold when the character is drunk. Given what may seem the obvious drawbacks of drunkenness in general, this trope may bear some relation to a DisabilitySuperpower. Some individuals, particularly artsy types, may [[ArtisticgrStimulation attribute such miracle abilities to other substances]].

* ''WesternAnimation/SkunkFu!'' has the episode ''Art of the Dizzy Master'', in which Skunk's movements become extremely unpredictable when he's dizzy, and nearly defeats [[BigBad Dragon]] in one-on-one combat simply by spinning himself around a bunch before the fight!

** Not only was Hitch brilliant while drunk, he was also a genius while hung over. Just try and find any video of him where he doesn't look like he spent the night imbibing vast quantities of ethanol instead of getting some rest. And he still mops the floor with his debate partners most of the time.

** None other but the historian Shelby Foote, interviewed at length for the Ken Burns documentary said that Grant really only drank when he was separated from his wife and if there was nothing else to do. Apparently he was a better commander when sober, and he knew it.
