* 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.

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.]]
