* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the priest at Fort Frostmoth (Antonius Nuncius) in the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion plays with the trope. He claims to be intercepting and hiding the alcohol shipments to the fort for moral reasons. [[spoiler: In actuality, he's hoping that the disgruntled soldiers will rebel so that he can be reassigned someplace more hospitable than Solstheim.]]

* In the ''{{Blackadder}} II'' episode "Beer", Edmund's puritanical relatives, the Whiteadders, are textbook examples of this trope (at least until the end of the episode).

* Many early feminists, including Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, were big supporters of the temperance movement. To a large extent, this was a fig leaf for addressing issues considered unspeakable at the time. A recurring theme in temperance propaganda was that of a seemingly good man who becomes a drunkard, leading him to abuse his wife and drag his family into poverty. At the time, this was also a common story in real life. The real issue was that the social order was set up so that a woman's livelihood was entirely dependent on the good will of her husband and she had no recourse if he became abusive or failed to provide for her. But in the context of nineteenth-century social mores, it was easier to address that issue by saying that the problem was alcohol made him that way.

[[AC: VideoGame]] *Dry Crusaders appear in [[{{VideoGame/VictoriaAnEmpireUnderTheSun}} Victoria II]] in several forms, such as events asking the leader to teach temperance, sometimes even asking to outright ban alcohol over the nation. The player themselves can in turn become one, but this does come with some risks such as encouraging reactionary thought or encouraging general population militancy, which may not end well.

* Poledra in ''TheMalloreon'' series by DavidEddings won't tolerate any drinking in her presence; when Belgarath tries to fill a tankard of ale around her, she takes it away and pours it on the ground. Somewhat of a subversion because her opposition has nothing to do with morals but is instead due to the fact she just can't stand the smell of alcohol.
