* 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.

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.

** Much earlier (in the ''Manga/Dragonball'' manga) he managed to outfight Goku by ''pretending'' to be drunk - since Goku had never been drunk himself, he couldn't predict Roshi's movements. This lasted until Goku came up with his own style of ConfusionFu to counter with. This was likewise bowdlerized into "Mad Cow Style" in the Funimation dub.

* Whether or not it's actually ''true'', Jim Lahey of ''Series/TrailerParkBoys'' certainly believes this about himself. After all, [[IAmTheTrope he]] ''[[IAmTheTrope is]]'' [[IAmTheTrope the liquor]].
