** Parodied in the AG episode "A Six Pack Attack", in which Team Rocket somehow gets [[ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin drunk off water]]. Even more shocking is that [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer this was not a 4Kids edit, and this was happening in the Japanese version too]]. The only edit to this scene (on the Kids' WB airing at least) in the dub was to change the wine glasses into normal glasses. Meowth even says lampshades it by saying "I'll drink ta' dat!"

Meowth even says glasses, the dub did not edit this scene in any way, and all but lampshades it by saying having Meowth say "I'll drink ta' dat!"

* ''TenchiMuyo'' also frequently had sake turned into tea. Of which Ryoko drank. And on which Ryoko got drunk. Yep. Some people just can't hold their tea. Amusingly, different voice actors read the edits: their voices would completely change, mention tea, and then change back.

* [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids's]] dub of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' turned wine into "grape juice" too. "Gorgonzola cheese, and the world's finest fruit punch." This is one of very few cases in which the change makes some kind of sense, considering how [[ManChild profoundly childish]] Pegasus is.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has sake changed into ''hot sauce''. The related drunken monsters ended up becoming "Dizzy" monsters... off of hot sauce? And this hot sauce causes a ''[[LampshadeHanging hangover.]]'' In fact, Misawa, who is at least 15, attempts to drown his sorrows in ketchup after a brief but unfortunate encounter with Taniya. Later on, a one-shot pro duelist uses a Wine deck, and while the names of cards are changed to less ridiculous titles ("Wine Token" becomes "Crimson Token", for example), the glass of wine he's holding is colored to look like orange juice. Surprisingly, when the games with the monster "Intoxicated Bug of the Ice Boundary" were translated to English, its name wasn't altered. Either Konami is being more lax in their demands for censorship (they ''did'' let [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar a monster called Ill Blud get through]], after all), or "Intoxicated" just isn't a strong enough euphemism for "drunken" for them to change it.

* In the Manga of ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', the Mermaids get drunk on soda. When Lucia drinks some soda by accident, the resultant mood swings are replaced with [[AppliedPhlebotinum a mood crystal]] in the anime.

* Amusing subversion: at one point in C. S. Lewis's ''[[TheChroniclesOfNarnia The Magician's Nephew]]'', Uncle Andrew takes a [[QuickNip steadying swig]] of something described as "some nasty grown-up drink." (In a later scene, some newly-created talking animals conclude that his name is "Brandy" [[VerbalTicName because he makes that sound so often]].)

* Played with, [[KiloWick like everything else,]] on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. Willow goes all out in a bid to seduce Oz, with one minor detail: she has a wine cooler by a candlelit table filled with not wine, but soda. PlayedForLaughs, as Willow amusingly (and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarmingly]] tries to get Oz into bed).
* In ''VazelinaHjulkalender'', it's claimed that Bruspulverguttene drink soda even though it's obviously liquor.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', as shown in the quote above, had a series of items with identical effects that, with the possible exception of the generic brand, were obviously various local alcohol beverages (ex. [[{{Wutai}} Mizuho]] had Mizuho sake). Even though it was rated "T", the English version changed these all to "potion", possibly because anyone could drink them, even the twelve-year-olds Genis and Presea.
** Interestingly, in ''Tales of the Abyss'', which was localized later, all alcohol references were left intact. Jade is even depicted drinking in a bar at certain points.

** This is repeated with ''Symphonia'''s sequel/spin off, but the ESRB's new rating summaries still consider it alcohol. Load of good that did Namco.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'', orange juice is made by dissolving oranges... apple juice is made by dissolving apples... pineapple juice is made by dissolving pineapples... melon juice is made by dissolving two types of melon... and "grape juice" is made by ''decaying'' bunches of grapes. Uh, yeah. Sure, guys. Best part? Mulsum, another item in the same game, is made with Water, Honey, and "Grape Juice". Mulsum is a real beverage, and a quick check on Wikipedia reveals the ingredients to be... Water, Honey, and ''Wine''. Also the Yagudo Drink, which is "a secret brew loved by the Yagudo" (bird-men). It's made by decaying three parts grape to one part cherry. All these drinks regenerate MP, with the Yagudo Drink as the strongest -? in two senses of the word, it seems. The SpirtualSequel, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', averts this. References to alcohol, taverns and drunkenness abound freely.

* In ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'', you can go to the village and down the ladder into a bar where you can see huge kegs of... juice. At least [[PungeonMaster the frogman]] has a field day with that.



* A very, very shamelessly obvious example: In the legendary Facebook timesink ''FarmVille'', you can start a "Winery". In said winery, you will occasionally see your recipes randomly switch from "Sweet Saki, White Wine, and Red Table Wine" to "Sweet ''Energy Drink'' (without doubt, the funniest of the lot), White Grape Cooler, and Rich Grape Juice" and back again.

Continued in TheStinger, in which the mug is replaced by a Nestle Crunch Bar, then a gummy bear, and finally, [[Main/ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Nappa's head]].

* ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'' has a hilarious segment in which the characters are involved with what is obviously a wine-making business, with grapes and grape vines, fermenting, vintages, etc. -- which all the characters describe as "soda". It's not so much censorship as a joke. In the airport, soda is banned on-site and will be confiscated.
** And this is after cameo appearances had to be written out of the game entirely due to drug references. The drug in question was [[MoralGuardians caffeine]].
