* ''Literature/SixOfCrows'' features ''jurda'', a stimulant made from orange blossoms. The invention of a variation of it, ''jurda parem'', which increases magical ability but takes a usually fatal toll on the user, kicks off the plot.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' had to change the name of a drug morphine to 'Med-X' in order to keep distribution in certain countries. A cry against 'censorship' went out, but real life drug names were never part of the Fallout franchise before, and Bethesda pretty much designed them to act like magic potions anyway, and this one in particular doesn't realistically simulate morphine. Also, in Fallout 3, a Ghoul comes up with a way to come up with a drug that can actually affect his kind. Ghouls barely feel anything from Jet, so he cooks up a way to turn it into ''Ultra''jet. Put simply, Ultrajet has serious and potentially permanent consequences on a human.

* ''WorldOfWarcraft'' has Bloodthistle, an herb that can only be taken by Blood Elves. When taken, it can increase spell power for ten minutes. On the other hand, it has a twenty minute 'withdrawal', which lowers your spirit. Oh, and it's outlawed in Shattrath City.

* Taduki from the Allan Quartermain novels (see below) also features in ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', in which it's a thinly disguised version of opium, and Allan is hooked on it. ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen Century: 1969'' also has the drug of choice in [[TheSixties Swinging London]] as "Tadukic Acid" (or "taddies") instead of LSD.

* Continuing the previous example, several of these substances such as obscura and lho are also mentioned elsewhere in the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' canon, such as the ''GauntsGhosts'' series. Though they are fantastic drugs, their uses approximate that of opium and something between cannibus and tobacco, respectively.
