* The title character in ''Film/BadLieutenantPortOfCallNewOrleans''. To the nth degree, and typically with hilarious results. He's still a good cop, and even a {{Badass}}, but always in a believable way (I.E. not an overblown action-movie way).

** Nate's battle with his addiction is a frequent plot point and major recurring theme throughout the series. It reaches its nadir in "The 12 Step Job" when he has to be in a rehab center as part of a con, leading to him genuinely suffering from alcohol withdrawal.

* ''Sterling WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', like Max Payne above, is constantly drunk (or seeking drink due to his high tolerance) yet can still shoot and/or whore his way out of any combat situation. At least three quarters of said combat situations are egged along (or outright started) by Archer's whoring, [[AmbiguousDisorder lack of social empathy]] and addiction [[InHarmsWay to his own adrenaline;]] yet the alcohol itself is (rarely) the direct cause of his woes.

* Hungarian mathematician Paul Erdős is well-known for being jacked up on speed [[MustHaveCaffeine and caffeine]] most of the time. He died at the ripe old age of 83, being one of the most celebrated scientists of the century. His many friends had long tried to get him to drop the habit, but once he went sober for a month on a dare, the man complained than while high [[ArtisticStimulation his head is teeming with ideas]] after just stealing a glance on a piece of paper, the only thing he sees while sober is an blank piece of paper.

* High Elves in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' were essentially to addicted to magic and functioned for generations by sustaining themselves on the magic of their sacred Sun Well, but when the Sun Well was destroyed their entire race descended into withdrawl and they became the Blood Elves. The Blood Elves started siphoning fel magic from demons to sooth their withdrawl and a faction of them even enslaved an angelic entity to feed off of it. Player Character Blood Elves up to restoration of the Sun Well were functional addicts; and various forms of degenerate blood elves who had descended too deeply into their depraved addictions were common antagonists in the Burning Crusade Expansion.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', John Hancock, a possible companion of the player character, abuses every chem in the Commonwealth (and even became a ghoul originally after taking a hit of an experimental radioactive drug) but it never phases him one bit. How much of this is due to using chems for so long, or his ghoul physiology, is unknown. Cait, a human companion in the same game, is also an addict, but in her case it's treated as a legitimate problem [[spoiler: for which she eventually seeks assistance from the Sole Survivor in curing, if she ends up liking them enough.]]
