* 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.]]

* In both the book and movie version of ''Literature/ElmerGantry'', the title character publicly preaches against the evils of booze. Privately, [[{{hypocrite}} it's another story]].

When the Dry Crusader appears, it's often in works that are set in the United States during the 19th and early 20th century which is the time the Women's Christian Temperance Union and the Anti-Saloon League were at their peak of influence, and which ultimately led to the Prohibition era, which lasted from 1920 to 1933 and saw the rise of organized crime to meet the demand. Instances of the Dry Crusader in stories set after the repeal of Prohibition in the U.S. in 1933 are far less common. You'll still come across characters who inveigh against all consumption of alcohol but, recognizing its historic total failure, they're less likely to advocate a complete ban or subjecting bars and taverns to hatchetization to achieve their goal. Often the character will serve as a StrawmanPolitical and usually be PlayedForLaughs.

** 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 dysentery due to drinking the local water, Bogart avoided the illness perhaps in part due to his consumption of primarily alcoholic beverages.

** It's primarily ''Belgarath'' to whom she objects to having access to alcohol, as well; her view seems to be that he drowned his sorrows for a whole decade, he shouldn't be drinking now. And she doesn't mind the smell of wine - just ale.
