* Dwarves in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' are much like robots in ''Futurama'': regularly consuming alcohol makes them ''normal'', lack of alcohol makes them lethargic to the point of uselessness. For a long time, alcoholic beverages didn't do anything except prevent withdrawal; an update in 2015 added proper intoxication (and alcohol poisoning, for those who go too far), but dwarves have innate resistance to it.

Other creatures may vary, but both kinds of gnomes (Dark Gnomes and Mountain Gnomes) are known for having massive booze capacity, being able and willing to raid your alcohol stocks and gulp down entire barrels without even feeling it despite weighing a fourth of what a dwarf does.

** Durkon mentions once that for religious purposes (specifically which afterlife they go to) a dwarf who actually manages to drink themselves to death is considered to have died in battle. This is meant to commemorate the heroic last stand of their livers more than anything.

* Oskar Schindler used his high tolerance for alcohol to his advantage in Nazi Germany. He befriended a number of Nazis by going out drinking with them, but always kept his wits about him while the Nazis got sloshed.

* Due to his hyperaccelerated matabolism, Barry in ''Series/TheFlash2014'' feels nothing even when he downs ten shots in the space of a second. Caitlin mixes him up a 300-proof shot[[labelnote:*]]That's 150% alcohol[[/labelnote]] at the S.T.A.R. Labs, and it works... for a few seconds. Much later, she succeeds in making something that'll get him drunk just in time for his bachelor party. He proceeds to get absolutely ''hammered.''

* On ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', Clark was immune to the effects of alcohol, as par for the course for Kryptonians, but did get drunk twice in the show's run. Both times magic, which can circumvent a Kryptonian's invulnerability, was involved.

* In the ''Series/TheFlash2014''/''Series/Supergirl2015'' story ''Fanfic/CallMeKara'', [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]] is a type 3b. Earth drinks can't affect her alien physiology. Later she gets her red sun bracelet so she can get drunk, along with other things. On ther other hand, Barry is a type 1 because he has to be sober every moment of every day.

* Valerya "Val" Akilinov in ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'' is completely immune to the deleterious effects of alcohol on the completely robust and logical grounds that [[MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong she is Russian]]. At one point a character who's had ''less'' to drink than Val says she's in no fit state to fly and tells Val to get them home instead.

* In ''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'' Naofumi is completely immune to alcohol. He happily ate several loco fruits without ill effect, despite them containing enough alcohol that a single fruit can produce a ''barrel'' of booze. When another character ate just ''half'' of a fruit they nearly died of alcohol poisoning.

--> Two bottles of vodka a day is really quite excessive. Why don't you just cut it down to one and we'll see how you're getting on at your next medical?

(This is actually sound medical advice; cutting out an addictive substance too quickly can actually be more dangerous in the short term than continuing it).
