* ''Series/BetterCallSaul'': In a flashback, Mike pretends to be drunk as part of a BatmanGambit, hoping that [[spoiler:the two {{Dirty Cop}}s who killed his son]] would offer him a ride home. During the ride, he "drunkenly" rants that he knows [[spoiler:the two of them killed his son and that he doesn't know how, but he's going to prove it]]. Just as planned, [[spoiler:they drive him to a secluded area so they can kill him, and take his gun from him so he can't fight back. What they didn't know is that he broke into the car hours ago and hid a ''second'' gun, which he uses to kill both of them]].

Compare FakeHigh, where the character thinks they're drunk or high when they're not.

Compare FakeHigh, where the character thinks they're drunk or high when they're not. MistakenForJunkie is a related trope where someone is incorrectly thought to be on drugs.

-->'''Vimes''': When we find the man responsible, somewhere at the top of the charge sheet is going to be Forcing Commander Vimes To Tip a Whole Bottle of Single Malt On The Carpet. That's a hanging offence.

** In ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'', the murderer leaves a bottle of whisky in reformed alcoholic Sam Vimes's desk, then contacts various "respected citizens" with the news he's drunk. When they arrive, it intitally appears that it's worked; the place stinks of alcohol and Vimes is slumped over his desk. Actually, Vimes just wants to see who turns up and how they react.

* In ''BurnNotice'', pretending to ''get'' drunk is one of the spy skills Michael has cultivated (the trick is to order a lot of ice in your drinks, leaving less space for alcohol, spill them a lot, and re-order before they're all the way gone). He's also played the trope straighter on occasion, when he needs a distraction.
