The only reliable cure for hangovers is time and lots of water, but that doesn't stop fictional characters from trying all sorts of other methods to speed up the process. The Hideous Hangover Cure comes in two varieties, the first is something that will catapult you back into full sobriety within minutes, sometimes even seconds. The second variety is the one you take to stop feeling awful the next day.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask [[VideoGameRemake 3D]]'' (but not the original) has you get one of these for Gorman when he's literally DrunkOnMilk. The remedy consists of [[HairOfTheDog more milk]], plus unspecified ingredients that Gorman's brother apparently picks up off (or out of) the ground. These additives seem to make the milk spoil quickly; returning the completed beverage is a TimedMission. Tatl is all to happy to inform you of how disgusting she thinks the concoction is and forbids you from doing anything that might risk spilling or consuming it (such as using the WarpWhistle to get back to town quickly), more due to the smell than for Gorman's sake.

* The first book of the Literature/ArtemisFowl series begins with the titular protagonist offering to cure an alcoholic sprite of her addiction & never ending hangover in exchange for information. The end result is "a hundred years of alcohol leaving the body by any means possible."
--> "-a little shot of man-made magic. [[ArtisticLicenseMedicine A virus that feeds on alcohol]], mixed with a growth reagent. It will flush every drop of rice wine from your body, remove the dependence and even bolster your failing liver. It'll be messy, but after a day you'll be [[OurFairiesAreDifferent zipping around as though you were a thousand years old again]]."

* ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'' has a [[ChekhovsBoomerang particularly useful one]]. All it takes is an egg, some pepper, and [[HairOfTheDog the hair of the dog that bit you]]. Dangerous if mixed, and surprisingly so for a LucasArts game.

* An easier to obtain way of getting rid of a hangover is to get a cup, fill it about a little over 2/3rds of the way with tomato juice. Then pepper the hell out of the surface with Tobasco sauce. Horrible taste, horrible after-effects (be prepared to spend a while in the restroom) but it gets rid of your hangover fast.

** There's a kind of ''ceviche'' (a Latin American raw fish preparation) meant to have this kind of effect. It's known as ''vuelve a la vida'' ("return to life") and is typically prepared in a very spicy tomato-based sauce.

* ''Film/BroadwayDannyRose'': The Danny Rose Formula, which includes two aspirins, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, goat cheese, and chicken fat. No one knows how it works, but it's an instant cure.

* The "Wake-Up Juice" from ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII''. This is an actual legit drink, the Bull Shot, a variant on the well-known Bloody Mary. It consists of one ounce of club soda, two ounces of beef broth, one ounce of tomato juice, one teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, quarter of a teaspoon of lemon juice, three dashes of Tabasco-Habanero sauce, and some dried garlic. It immediately causes the Doc to holler and rush to the nearby water trough without waking up. Explanation? "That's just a reflex reaction. He won't be awake for another 10 minutes."
** Though this was used to wake him up, and he apparently had a headache afterward.

* In the ComicBook/{{Asterix}} comic book ''Asterix and the Laurel Wreath'', Asterix and Obelix unintentionally invent an extremely powerful Hideous Hangover Cure (it should be mentioned that its ingredients included ''soap and a full chicken with all its feathers'' ) for the Roman family they are temporarily serving as slaves. (They just had planned to cook up something inedible to be... fired isn't the right word, but you know what I mean.) In the last page of the comic the narrator states that this potion induced Romans to drink in excess without regard for consequences, thus contributing to the decline of their Empire.
** How hideous is the cure, would you ask ? Well, its effects include the subject taking changing colors, belching flames, and roaring while foaming at the mouth, then belching soap bubbles for some time afterwards (Obélix finds it [[ExtremeOmnivore bland]]).

* ''{{Deadlands}}'' Classic had a small spell (termed a "trick") named ''coffin varnish'' that [[CardSharp Hucksters]] could use to conjure a thick, black liquid reminiscent of [[BadToTheLastDrop two-day old coffee mixed with a small amount of corn starch and kerosene]]. Sure, ItTastesLikeFeet, but it does help with hangovers.
