* 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 had just 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, you may ask? Well, its effects include the subject changing colors, belching flames, and roaring while foaming at the mouth, then belching soap bubbles for some time afterwards (Obélix finds it [[ExtremeOmnivore bland]]).
* From ''ComicBook/{{Buck Godot|Zap Gun for Hire}}'', there's "Thank Prime", a mixture that we never learn the ingredients for[[note]]Although the assembled ingredients include ice, mustard, a lemon, an oil can, a bottle with a skull and crossbones on it, and Elmer's Glue. See here: http://www.airshipentertainment.com/buckcomic.php?date=20070828 [[/note]], but it's apparently ultra-effective, instantaneously curing a hivemind-sized hangover with no side-effects... its taste is never brought up. Of course, the first one to drink it was so hung over he was hoping it would be poison.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels
** The ultimate hangover cure appears in ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}''. The wizards of Unseen University mix together every hangover cure they can think of, including a whole bottle of Wow-Wow sauce ([[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce the ultimate hot sauce]], which distressingly contains two-thirds of the active ingredients in gunpowder) and at least three magic spells, they end up with a glowing, effervescent beaker containing "the essence of pure sobriety". It goes down easy and has no lasting side effects for the drinker, Bilious, the [[OddJobGods oh god of Hangovers]], but this is because Bilious gets his perpetual hangover from the drinks consumed by Bibulous, the God of Wine. So naturally, Bibulous ends up getting the "humorous side effects" of the hangover cure. Up on Cori Celesti, he starts to hear some kind of "descending note" - [[NoodleIncident and then we cut back to the horrified wizards magically watching.]]
** The famous KlatchianCoffee (Which is another one of the ingredients in the above ultimate hangover cure), which can take you from drunkenness to sobriety and right the way through to a terrifying state beyond sobriety, where you see everything as it truly is. This is known as being "knurd". Aficionados tend to drink large amounts of alcohol before indulging in Klatchian Coffee to offset the effect. Alcohol made out of ''scorpion venom'' mind you. Being knurd must be pretty horrible if people will drink that to avoid it.

* The Drive-Right pill in Creator/HarryHarrison's ''[[Literature/TheStainlessSteelRat The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge]]''. It's a small round pill that will make you absolutely stone cold sober seconds after swallowing it... it's completely black except for a skull and crossbones on each side. Unfortunately it's rather unpleasant to take.
** The description of its effect includes the words "[[FireBreathingDiner fire hose]]".
** Harry Harrison must have felt the world needed this; it shows up again in ''Literature/BillTheGalacticHero'' with a "SideEffectsInclude" listing.

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.

* 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.

* 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.
