* [[ActionGirl Jaylah]] from ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' drinks several alcoholic beverages after being told that it will "take her edge off." It doesn't work. Even though her species is never identified, it's most likely a case of BizarreAlienBiology.

* 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. Until 2015, 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.

* Dr Gideon Fell, from Creator/JohnDicksonCarr's novels, can put away enough booze to land any two normal men in the ER with alcohol poisoning without showing any sign. Probably a 3A from pure body mass (if there's an Obese Detective trope, he's one of the poster children).
