** 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 happening in the Japanese version too]]: beyond an edit on the Kids' WB airing to change the wine glasses to normal glasses, the dub did not edit this scene in any way, and all but lampshades it by having Meowth say "I'll drink ta' dat!"
** Cilan's job was changed from "Sommelier" to "Connoisseur" in the English dub due to the original name being associated with alcohol.
* Scenes with alcohol are either removed or referred to as something else in the 4Kids dub of ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa''. Averted in one episode, the dentist episode, where Dedede is seen drinking wine from a wine glass. Granted, no attention was called to it, but it was still clearly wine, and 4Kids did nothing to cover it up.

** VideoGame/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney takes this gag to it's logical conclusion, with Phoenix drowning his sorrows in grape juice (and implied to be a borderline alcoholic). At one point in the game, you visit him in the hospital, and spot a crate of grape juice in his room. His daughter says that the doctor told him that he should cut down. Who knew grape juice was so bad for you?

* Averted/Parodied in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', in which the main character Phoenix Wright drinks not wine, but rather, grape juice, which happens in '''BOTH''' the Western and in the Eastern versions. Same with [[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Miles Edgeworth]] who is clearly seen drinking grape juice. In fact, that's creator Shu Takumi's [[TrademarkFavouriteFood favorite drink]]. Similar thing happens with [[MemeticBadass Inspector Tyrell Badd]] who seems to have a "cigarette", which turns out to be a lollipop. Obviously, all these things are PlayedForLaughs.

** ''[[Series/BlackadderII'': inverted in "Potato", after being forced to produce a gift for Sir Walter Raleigh and Lord Melchet or face beheading, they reveal two bottles of "fine wine". It is in fact water... frothy water. [[spoiler:Baldrick's water, to be precise.]]

* In ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' book Rodrick Rules, Greg's mom takes issue with him playing a game called "Magick and Monsters"--- not for the monsters, but for the fact that characters consume pints of mead (fermented honey wine) in the game. As a result, she makes him substitute "drink" for mead.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is another aversion. Some of the inns in the game have taverns inside, with certain patrons who have clearly been hitting the bottle a few times too many (complete with AlcoholHic). Like in ''Twilight Princess'', though, they won't serve Link because he's underage.

* ''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.

** Despite the removal of most of the appearances of beer in the show, one beer was kept in the Saban dub. When Goku goes to find something to drink, he finds a beer, but dismisses it in favor of a Sports Drink. Of course, the dubbers played the scene up for its PublicServiceAnnouncement value. This is retained in Dragonball (Z) Kai's dub, but it's been edited to what appears to be milk. This only applies to the Nicktoons Network and [=CW4Kids=] version of the show, the [=DVDs=] and the Toonami versions are uncut.

* In ''Anime/SailorMoon'', Zoicite catches Nephrite with a brandy bottle, and he says something like "You're very relaxed". In the Creator/DiC dub, ''[[ShesAManInJapan she]]'' catches him with it and sarcastically says, "Your plan is to poison Sailor Moon's lemonade?" Both Usagi's instances of IntoxicationEnsues have her drinking what's obviously a ridiculously small amount of wine, which was changed into her getting "hyper" from drinking "too much juice". The coffee version of this trope was seen in the episode where Usagi and Mamoru visit Ali and An's apartment; thus, Alan and Ann end up making Serena and Darien hot cocoa... ''with a coffee maker''.
** The coffee example is especially ridiculous because it was very much Mamoru's [[MustHaveCaffeine drink of choice]], at one point abandoning his girlfriend in a romantic moment over a flimsy excuse to go drink more coffee.

* ''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 ''hangover.'' (They try to explain that it happens because there is a lot of onion in the sauce... [[SarcasmMode makes totally sense]]) 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.
** On the other hand, it really drives home the [[DoubleEntendre alternate meaning of]] [[StealthPun "sauced"]].

** Played straight with "berry juice" in the [[VideoGame/HarvestMoon1 original SNES game]]. They drink berry juice... In a bar. Characters are very obviously drunk on the "juice", such as Nina at a festival and Ellen's drunkard dad, yet it's never referred as wine. Sequel game ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' takes place a few decades later and averts this trope heavily. It even introduced the most well-known alcohol loving character in the series, Karen, who works at her father's bar (the bar Eve worked at in the original).
** Played straight in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonMagicalMelody Magical Melody]]'', in which you can consume "soda". There's even a soda-related achievement with an title that makes an alcohol-related pun ("High Spirits"). Eve is back and she's still a bartender yet they drink "soda". It doesn't have the excuse of being a mid-90s Nintendo game like the original does. It's possibly Natsume either meant it as a MythologyGag to the original (it was a tenth anniversary) game or, more likely, they worried the SuperDeformed style would attract more little kids than previous games.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' features Med-X, an obvious BrandX of morphine. Reportedly, the game would have been rated AO in some countries if the morphine hadn't been renamed.
** Alcohol is everywhere though, and your player can even become dependent on it.

** In the episode "The Bands Break Up", both Kimber and Stormer coincidentally have fights with their bands about feeling unappreciated. They visit what looks like a bar to [[DrowningMySorrows presumably wallow around and drink their sorrows out]] however it sells ''milkshakes''. It could be {{justified|trope}} in Kimber's case that she's presumably under the California age limit for drinking alcohol however Stormer stands out as she's presumably in her twenties. She has a SweetTooth though.
** In the music video to "Take It Or Leave It", Riot is first shown at a party staring into a glass with ice in it before he slams it down in anger. The drink is purple like juice. While punch is something that ''is'' served at parties, his forlorn demeanor at the time implies [[DrowningMySorrows it should be something else]] and the fact he is a 80s rock star makes the image a bit unusual. The purple beverage also appeared in the music video to "Under My Spell" and it is in wine glasses, though it's a bit too off-colour to be wine.

** Later that season, during the World Tour arc, the Mamemon Brothers have taken over a house so they can eat their Christmas dinner. Clearly drunk, and drinking from what is clearly wine glasses, we hear the line "Mmm, good juice!" in a voice that ''actually sounds drunkenly slurred,'' over a scene during which no one onscreen could have been speaking. Mind you, this was around the time the dubbers and started GettingCrapPastTheRadar; the speaker couldn't have been more clearly drunk, and anyone who knows it's a dub of a Japanese show would call shenanigans on a line with no mouth movements.
