* The [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons German military]] from 1938 throughout WorldWarTwo used liberally a compound of the dreaded methamphetamine (then known as [[http://www.spiegel.de/international/0,1518,354606,00.html Pervitin]] and often laced into chocolate to mask its bitter taste), in the hopes it would give the soldiers and most importantly airmen superhuman performance. While it certainly did not grant ''super''human powers, it really did enable levels of wakefulness and concentration similar to that achieved by caffeine and increased levels of aggressiveness. Germany was particularly dependent upon Pervitin because the blockade meant she was unable to acquire coffee or caffeinated tea in the requisite quanties. The Wehrmacht actually cut back on the issuing of pervitin in 1941-2 due to the adverse side effects of hyperaggression and addiction, but ended up issuing more of it than ever before from 1943 onward as things went from bad to worse in Ukraine and then Belarus.

* ''CaptainUnderpants'' didn't have superpowers initially, but gained them after drinking some literal Super Serum off of an alien spaceship in book three. This simply complicated things further, naturally.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', Sgt. Hatred is a product of a ComicBook/CaptainAmerica-style serum given to him by the O.S.I. It turned out to be a bit more of a PsychoSerum, as it gave him pedophilic tendencies. The O.S.I. made it up to him with a supply of "Nomolestol" to calm those urges, but the new side effect of that was... [[BreastExpansion breasts]].
** The Action Man of original Team Venture was also generally on a serum during his heyday. It is implied to have been addictive, and possibly to have had psychotic side-effects. For instance, a tipsy Col. Gentleman baits him about the time he killed a baby, which the Action Man insists was a werewolf. There is no indication of whether this serum is related to Sgt. Hatred's.

* ''TabletopGame/TheDraculaDossier'': Edom makes extensive use of Seward Serum. Billed as a combat drug, it boosts users to the physical equivalent of [[TheRenfield Renfields]] (people granted limited vampiric powers by Dracula or one of his servants). Which only makes sense, since it's derived from vampire blood ....

** The various [[ComicBook/NormanOsborn Green Goblins]] and Hobgoblins from SpiderMan comics used a serum that involved this trope mixed with a little bit of PsychoSerum since the Goblin formula increased a person's strength and intellect but also made them AxCrazy.

** In [[ComicBook/SpiderGwen Earth-65]], Jesse Drew (a male version of [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Jessica Drew]]) was bitten by alien moon spiders, and the antidote that saved his life also granted him the abilities of his Prime Earth counterpart. He was made to believe that he needed to keep taking regular doses of the "antidote" in order to stay alive, but in actuality it simply allowed him to keep his powers.

* In ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina'', Egg Shen gives the heroes a potion just before the final showdown that will make them more heroic. It seems to work. Wang, at least, is able to jump superhuman distances.

Wang, at least, is able to jump superhuman distances. It at least somewhat overlaps with LiquidCourage, since they're all obviously drunk after drinking it.
