** If someone is injected with [[Zeke (aka the Beast Titan)'s]] serum, [[spoiler:he can force them to transform into mindless titans by screaming]]. Nobody knows ''why'', but presumably it's due to [[spoiler:his royal blood]].

* 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 [[EverythingsBetterWithRainbows Rainbow Reverie]] from ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' is a five piece set of [[AlchemyIsMagic magic potions]] with each colored potion having a different temporary effect (Red gives {{Superstrength}}, Blue gives {{Superspeed}}, Yellow improves [[AmplifierArtifact magic]], Purple makes your body [[MadeOfIndestructium invulnerable]] and Green is a powerful HealingPotion), it was used by medians during the great war to even the battlefield with the demons but is near impossible to make now due to it's most important ingredients being extremely rare in Medius [[http://www.sdamned.com/comic/447 until recently]]. It also has different effects on certain groups, for instance the red potion causes demons to [[spoiler:enter a more controled and nonlethal version of their typically [[CastFromLifespan fatal]] [[OneWingedAngel berserk form]]]] and the yellow potion can [[spoiler:make someone who's [[DivineParentage descended]] from one of the [[PhysicalGod twelve]] [[ElementalEmbodiment guardians]] [[{{Semidivine}} reconnect]] to the [[SuperpowerfulGenetics bloodline.]]]]

* In ''Comicbook/TheBoys'', Compound V is what gives people superpowers. Usually, samples just give temporary powers but the pure kind gives you powers permanently. Guess which sort [[spoiler:Billy Butcher injects Wee Hughie]] with...?

* In the years before WW2, Finland was one of the world's largest users of medicinal heroin. When the war began, and the Soviet Union invaded Finland, beginning the Winter War, Finnish soldiers were issued with heroin pills. At least one Finnish historian has said that the Finnish army's exceptionally level-headed defence of Finnish territory was in part due to the fact that Finland's soldiers were, shall we say, feeling no pain.

* A subplot in the second season of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' involves a drug called "Mirakuru", which was developed by the Japanese during UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 in order to create an army of {{Super Soldier}}s. [[spoiler: It ends being what grants both [[Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} Slade Wilson]] and Solomon Grundy their powers]].

* The [[UsefulNotes/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.

* Many games have stat-boosting powerup potions, but the sheer number of them in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' makes it a notable example; it's not uncommon to boost yourself to over 1000% of your normal strength. Not all potions are, strictly speaking, ''potions'' (many are oddball things like horoscopes or trivia cards), but most of the actual potions consist of questionable substances like "gremlin mutagen," were-seal blood, or dangerously high-pressure spheres of something concocted by evil mer-people.
