* ''Film/AClockworkOrange'' (film and book) features "Moloko Plus", milk mixed with a variety of subtances including "synthomesc" substances like "synthemesc" (presumably mescaline or a close analogue) analogue), "drencrom" (presumably adrenochrome) and "vellocet"."vellocet" (given the resemblance to "velocity", probably "speed"-like amphetamines), all normally mixed into milk (thus why it's called ""milk ''plus''", as in milk ''plus'' whatever you put in it.

* The Piraka in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' bribe Brutaka (who's a good guy suffering from a major CrisisOfFaith) into working for them by supplying him with Antidermis. This works as a sort of highly powerful steroid to his species… and is also the substance that (unknown to them) [[EnergyBeing makes up]] the [[BigBad Makuta]]. As long as he only received small doses of the stuff (which were separated from Makuta's mind), he got a [[AmplifierArtifact power boost]], but when he soaked up multiple ''full'' Makuta essences, [[ManySpiritsInsideOfOne they took control over his body]], seemingly permanently--but in return, [[PowersViaPossession made him infinitely more powerful]].

* The Trolls of ''TheTenthKingdom'' have "dwarf moss" that makes you see fairies. However, the real example is the Troll King's invisibility shoes, which give their wearer such a great sense of power that they become more and more obsessed with wearing them all the time. Even touching them seems to be enough to begin the process; as soon as Virginia does so, she hides them in her backpack, thinks of nothing else, and acts increasingly paranoid, even clutching the shoes like Linus's security blanket. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Wolf (twice!) when he claims "magic is very nice, but it's very easy to get addicted", and later tells Virginia she is "hopelessly addicted to those shoes… and I'm not too far behind!" Whether this is meant to be a parody or an object lesson is never made clear, but it certainly plays out with extreme hilarity.

* In ''Westernanimation/{{Phantom 2040}}'', simulations of the natural environment from before the Resource Wars are portrayed like addictive drugs, complete with strung-out junkies going without food for a hit, and getting violent when their session is interrupted.

* ''ComicBook/{{Pouvoirpoint}}'': various drugs with psychedelic effects are inhaled using a narghile, including a narcotic from Venus called ''PXL'' (which literally [[{{Pixellation}} pixilates]] you), and ''Demoulax'', which plunges the main character into highly hallucinatory dreams.
** During New Year's Eve, pills called ''En-fêtes'' [[EverybodyMustGetStoned are available at the buffet]], producing mild effects on the speech bubbles spoken by the characters (one will have reversed text, another will have hairy speech bubbles...).

* TamoraPierce likes to do this. In the Literature/TortallUniverse, there's "laugh powder" and "hotblood wine" and and "rainbow dream." Some or all of these are probably real drugs under fantasy names (poppy is also mentioned), but we'll never know.

** Tomacco, a tomato/tobacco hybrid accidentally invented by Homer. It's very addictive and makes people aggressive.
