* Used in a disturbing fashion in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', via CannibalismSuperpower. Eating another ghoul will strengthen the cannibal, at the risk of developing a mutation that drives the user insane.
** During the battle in the abandoned church, a wounded [[ActionGirl Touka]] bites a chunk of flesh out of Kaneki's shoulder to boost her strength, allowing her to overpower and defeat Tsukiyama. The next time he shows up, Tsukiyama explains that he survived his mortal wounds by taking Touka's advice to [[AutoCannibalism eat himself]].
** After 10 days of imprisonment and torture, Kaneki regains his strength by biting chunks of flesh from his captor. In pursuit of further power, he spends the next several months hunting other ghouls and becomes addicted to the power it gives him.
** In the sequel, a horrified Ui comes across Sasaki eating the remains of a fallen opponent. He quickly explains that he was badly injured, and needed to eat to replenish his strength.

* In one "Got Milk?" commercial, two kids are playing ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' and trying unsuccessfully to get Mario up a steep wall. After they give up and leave, Mario leaps out of the television, goes to their refrigerator, and drinks a carton of milk, growing to giant size. Then he returns to the game and scales the wall with ease.

* [[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.]]
