* When you have a blast furnace for a metabolism (and this may be literal), you tend to burn off alcohol -- so in the [[Fanfic/TriptychContinuum Triptych Continuum]], Spike is effectively immune to the stuff: he can appreciate it for the taste, but the effects will never reach his brain. He's won at least one drinking contest this way -- and while he's under Twilight's supervision, may not get a shot at more: the other ponies generally don't wake up for a while.

* ComicBook/RedSonja is depicted drinking frequently (especially in Creator/GailSimone's run) and occasionally hungover, but alcohol never seems to dull her senses or affect her behavior.

* Due to his hyperaccelerated matabolism, Barry in ''[[Series/TheFlash2014 The Flash]]'' (2014) feels nothing even when he downs ten shots in the space of a second. Caitlin mixes him up a 300-proof shot at the S.T.A.R. Labs, and it works... for a few seconds.

* Bernice Cliffton of ''DesigningWomen'' has an "arterial flow problem" that normally interferes with her grasp on logic and reality, but alcohol makes her more lucid. She usually doesn't drink for specifically that reason, but she does get drunk for her competency hearing just in case, and the night before, she mentioned frequently calling the person who requested the competency hearing, keeping her awake and making sure she's not at her best for said hearing.
* Karen Walker of ''WillAndGrace.'' Drunk is her default. She constantly is drinking one thing or another, keeps a full-sized keg in Grace's office, has several rooms in her house devoted solely to liquor storage, and will casually pound a nearly full bottle of vodka without stopping to take a breath. It's somewhat speculated that's she's so perpetually filled with alcohol and prescription drugs, she's somehow become pickled. She's also the most scarily competent, devious, and cunning member of the cast.
* In one episode of ''WKRPInCincinnati'', Johnny Fever participates in an on-air experiment to show the dangers of drunk driving. He takes a simple test to measure his reaction time while sober then repeats it several times, drinking beer between the tests. Ordinarily, reaction time is slower the more alcohol you consume, but somehow Johnny's reflexes are faster the drunker he gets.

** For example of how these things usually go, one short story had a group of [[SpaceWolf Space Wolves]][[note]]Space Vikings, essentially[[/note]] skoaling ''prodigious'' amounts of alcohol, non-stop, only for one to suddenly pause, hiccup and finally collapse to the floor, where he began snoring loudly.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' has the Centauri, who, in the centuries, have abused their bodies so much they have a ''ludicrous'' tolerance to poisons... Including alcohol. If you see a Centauri actually getting drunk, ask him what did he drink and take note to ''not'' touch it. However, this isn't a universal trait; Vir is such a lightweight that he's completely plastered after two small drinks. This actually comes in handy for Londo in later life, as [[spoiler:the Drakh keeper attached to him doesn't have his capacity for alcohol, so he can drink it into a stupor while remaining sober enough to act against the Drakh's schemes.]]
