** It should be noted here that director SamPeckinpah was a notoriously heavy drinker, making this a possible TakeThat.



* Poledra in ''[[Literature/TheBelgariad The Malloreon]]'' series by Creator/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.
** It's primarily ''Belgarath'' to whom she objects to having access to alcohol, as well; her view seems to be that he [[DrowningMySorrows drowned his sorrows]] for a whole decade, he shouldn't be drinking now. And she doesn't mind the smell of wine - just ale.



* The ''Series/{{MASH}}'' episode "Alcoholics Unanimous" has [[TheNeidermeyer Frank Burns]] assuming this role while he's in temporary command of the 4077.

** An interesting real-life irony related to this instance of the trope is that, during the duration of filming, while the sober Hepburn came down with a case of dysentery due to drinking the local water, Bogart avoided the illness perhaps in part due to his consumption of primarily alcoholic beverages.

* In the first few novels of the ''Literature/{[Worldwar}}'' series, which starts in 1942, characters throughout the United States often talk about and recall the events of Prohibition, particularly when they are drink alcohol. At one point, Mutt Daniels actually finds himself taking shelter in what was once a headquarters of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and thinks on the irony; he even says that he ''started'' drinking when he was a young man because he figured that anything the Union was against was probably okay.

* In a ''HappyDays'' episode where Richie's great-uncle-for-this-episode tells the story of one of Richie's relatives, a saloon-busting DA in Prohibition-era UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}, we see a WholeEpisodeFlashback starring the main characters as [[AndYouWereThere these other characters from the period]]. Mrs. C. "plays" a local version of Carrie Nation, coming into the speakeasy and trying to catch them selling alcohol so she can bust it up.
* A sect of these appears in the ''MidsomerMurders'' episode "The Night of the Stag".

Often the character will serve as a StrawmanPolitical and usually be PlayedForLaughs. Expect your crusader to unknowingly imbibe alcohol at some point (sometimes an honest accident, sometimes for a prank, sometimes medicinally) and for them [[CantHoldHisLiquor to get hilariously soused]] after one drink. This may [[BreakTheHaughty break some of their pride]] and help them admit that they're [[NotSoAboveItAll only human]], and to be a bit more understanding towards occasional indulgence. Or it could just make them angrier - tricking someone into imbibing a substance they have a moral revulsion to is generally [[DudeNotFunny not a nice thing.]]
