* ''ComicBook/TheInvisibles'' has the "Key" series of drugs (Key 17, Key 23) that cause people to hallucinate and mistake words for the thing they describe. Having been told he was infected with a flesh-eating virus, someone is tortured by being shown a hand mirror with a post-it saying "diseased face"; a villain drops to her knees, sobbing with regret and begging forgiveness in front of a "world's greatest dad" mug; and one of the {{Big Bad}}s explodes when a flag-gun saying "Bang!" unfurls in front of him.

** From the latest episode, the titular Member Berries, which placate people by talking about nostalgic things, like "Member Chewbacca?" or "Member Ghostbusters?" But there is a side effect; after a while, they start saying things like "Member when there weren't so many Mexicans?" and "Member when marriage was just between a man and a woman?"

* The ''Literature/BlackCompany'': Mushrooms growing on a golem's body have an euphoric effect. The consumers start singing or laughing for no reason, and stop feeling both tired and hungry.
--> '''Sleepy''': This stuff could get addictive.

* ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' has Zyme, the drug of choice for teenage rebels and junkies in 2052, in game it just gives you the effect of at least a dozen bottles of alcohol (wobbly and blurry vision) the Shifter game mod allows you to use it for temporary bullet time (normal effects still come after it).

* ''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.
