* ''{{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 two-day old coffee mixed with a small amount of corn starch and kerosene. Sure, ItTastesLikeFeet, but it does help with hangovers.

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 HideousHangoverCure 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.

* The Prairie Oyster also makes an appearance in ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'', given to a drunken daughter of a Chinese investor. Apparently, they don't help when you're drunk, only make things worse.

* ''BrainiacScienceAbuse'' once did an experiment to find which of three hangover cures worked best (Greasy breakfast, hair of the dog, or nothing at all). Hair of the dog had good short term effects (because the body stops working on the difficult to process stuff which causes hangovers and starts on the easier just added alcohol) but bad long term (you just delay your hangover for the same reason). A greasy breakfast was the best of the options presented.
* ''{{Bottom}}'' does this with a concoction made out of various kitchen-cleaning chemicals and a few organic ingredients (past their expiration date, for preference). It has to be taken through the nose.

Often involves BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce. Related to ItTastesLikeFeet (because it usually does), GargleBlaster (because it usually requires one), and [[IAteWhat I Drank What?]] (a common response from the subject afterward).

* A surefire way to avoid a hangover is abstinence or moderation...which, [[TheAlcoholic for some,]] is this trope in itself.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheSagaOfDarrenShan'' has a variant: the traditional hangover cure on Vampire Mountain isn't any kind of drink, but to go stick your head under the local WaterfallShower. Darren finds it's actually effective once the agony wears off.

* The Drive-Right pill in Creator/HarryHarrison's ''[[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.
