** In the second season, Mr. Hyde shows up with his own serum, made from a bevvy of experimental drugs, as well as [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking gorilla testosterone and peppermint]]. A full dose gives him enough SuperStrength to break through bulletproof glass and enough SuperToughness to survive getting rammed into a wall by a car, with the only side effect being a minor physical transformation and [[PsychoSerum increased aggression]]. However, it's implied that using it has caused the effects to last longer and possibly even become permanent; even when not using the serum, he has performed feats of strength and endurance that might not be superhuman, but are definitely improbable.
** In the third season, it is revealed that the US government created a serum and gave it to [[spoiler:Jeffery Mace, in order to allow him to pretend to be an Inhuman so that they could put an Enhanced person with a good public face in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D.]] And the serum was based on Hyde's serum.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', the Velocity drug can not only temporarily boost a speedster's, well, speed, but can also be used to temporarily turn a normal human into a speedster. It does have some nasty side effects, however.

It does have some nasty side effects, however. In addition to hallucinations, speedsters who overuse it will eventually lose their speed entirely, while non-speedsters will not only be affected by the hallucinations faster, they will eventually disintegrate as they move faster than their bodies can handle.

** Puny Steve Rogers became ComicBook/CaptainAmerica thanks to the Super-Soldier serum created by Dr. Abraham Erskine, and [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup failed attempts to recreate it]] are common plot points in both the regular and [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] universes.

** As far as anyone at this point is able to understand, everything in the UltimateMarvel universe involving superpowers are derived from attempted recreations of Captain America's Super Serum. Which in turn was reverse engineered from [[spoiler:Wolverine, in the same experiments that created mutants.]]

* It's not technically SuperSerum, but Popeye gets his powers explicitly by eating a can of spinach. Why no one else tries is this is unknown.

** Patriot (Elijah Bradley) from ''YoungAvengers'' is the grandson of Isaiah Bradley, the [[{{Retcon}} "first"]] Captain America, but his mother was conceived before Isaiah was experimented on, so he did not inherit his grandfather's powers. When Iron Lad came to recruit Elijah's brother, Elijah claimed to have gained superpowers through an emergency blood transfusion, but really was gaining powers artificially with MGH (Mutant Growth Hormone), an illegal street drug that causes brief periods of super-human abilities. Once discovered he stopped taking the MGH but went into battle anyway, was grievously wounded... and got an emergency blood transfusion from his grandfather, thus gaining superpowers.

* ''WildCards'' plays the "SuperSerum = drugs" thing for all it's worth with Captain Trips, a genius biochemist, "the world's last hippie," and one of the most powerful Aces on the planet. He manages to bring each of his "friends" ([[SplitPersonality alternate personalities]] each with [[PersonalityPowers their owns set of superpowers]]) out with "special concoctions" he makes himself. His first accidental transformation was primarily fueled by his first hit of acid.

* ''The39Clues'' series is all about gathering 39 ingredients, or "Clues", to [[spoiler:create a Super Serum that gives you the abilities of each of the four "branches" of the family searching for it - the cunning of the Lucians, the intelligence of the Ekaterinas, the strength of the Tomas, and the artistic talent of the Janus]] - feasibly allowing you to rule the world. These Clues include all kinds of ingredients, from harmless ones you can find in a grocery store such as [[spoiler:honey, salt, and mint]] to highly toxic substances like [[spoiler:mercury, lead, and king cobra venom]].

* In ''{{Starcraft}}'', Terran infantry have access to stimpacks, drugs that increase movespeed and attack speed at the cost of 10 hitpoints (and have long-term effects in the novels). When they had no way of healing their troops, this was slightly risky (Marines only have 40 HP), but Brood War introduced medics that made them pretty much mandatory. In the sequel, the much tougher Marauders get them as well ([[GameBreaker though not in the campaign]] and at the cost of double the health), allowing them to do horrible things to enemy vehicles and structures and kite combined with their concussive grenades, kite or chase down nearly anything.

* ''RogerRamjet'' got his powers from "Proton Energy Pills".
* Super Chicken, in his segment on ''GeorgeOfTheJungle'', had even more fun with this. The hero drinks a concoction known as Super Sauce... [[PowerUpFood from a martini glass]]. Whether it really gives him any powers is also up for debate.

* The ''GummiBears'' are a target for all number of villains because their magical Gummiberry juice temporarily grants [[CerealInducedSuperpowers superhuman strength to humans who drink it]]. (The juice allows the bears themselves to bounce much like Tigger from ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh''.)
