* [[GeorgeOfTheJungle Super Chicken's]] super sauce falls under this trope, especially since he typically drinks it from a martini glass. Although since the recipe varies with each episode, it's most likely just a MagicFeather for his own powers. (Emphasized by a RunningGag on the show that made taking the sauce different each time; One time Fred adds too much corn starch, and the sauce has to be eaten with a spoon. Another time, it's 'instant super sauce,' which needs water added. Still another time, Fred gives him steak sauce by accident, and the hero hurts himself trying to break through a wall.)

* Eigetsu from ''SaiunkokuMonogatari'' turns into Yougetsu when he drinks sake. At first it seems he's just a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass with a side-order of DrunkenMaster, but it eventually becomes clear that Yougetsu, in addition to badass Kung-Fu skills, has inhuman strength, reflexes, stamina, and rapid regeneration. At one point, Eigetsu reverts into Yougetsu after having spent weeks being starved and tortured to the point where he can't stand unsupported, and in addition to being strong enough to sprint on the spot, when he's seen a brief while later, all his wounds are healed... It's eventually revealed that Yougetsu is [[spoiler:one of eight immortal sages, specifically the Sage of White; he possessed Eigetsu to save his life. Sake brings him out because he really likes sake.]]
