* ''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.

* 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.

PowerUpFood is the case when the abilities come from common foodstuffs. Applied to enough people at once, and it becomes a MassSuperEmpoweringEvent. If (as in the case of CaptainAmerica, pictured right) only one person gets it, it's a DisposableSuperheroMaker. A SuperhumanTransfusion (especially if it's from someone who drank Super Serum) usually has the same effects.

** Puny Steve Rogers became 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.

* DanielClowes CaptainAmerica parody "The Battlin' American" has horrible addiction problems requiring him to take regular doses of the super serum. [[spoiler: The street thugs who steal it from him find this out the hard way.]]

** ComicBook/{{Static}} and the rest of the Dakota Bang Babies recieved their powers from being exposed to an experimental mutagenic gas during a massive gang fight. The police thought was tear gas meant to track the gangs to capture them later.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Erskine's original serum in Steve [[spoiler: and his descendants, as it turns out - as Carol Danvers demonstrates, it just requires a sufficient kick in the genetic pants to do more than slow ageing and give a very slightly enhanced condition]]. On more than one occasion, it is observed that almost every attempt to replicate it has failed, however, there have been a few successes.
** Bruce turning into the Hulk, if you want to call that a success. Ditto the Abomination.
** The Russian Infinity Formula, given to Natasha, Ivan Petrovitch and [[spoiler: the Winter Soldier, in the latter case to stabilise his enhancements by Zola]].
*** SHIELD also has the Infinity Formula, implied to have been used by Nick Fury, who offers it to Coulson (who turned it down) and to [[spoiler: the Flamels in exchange for them working for him, a primary inducement being that the formula repairs everything... including reproductive systems.]]
** Maya Hansen's Extremis formula, [[Film/IronMan3 the basic version being the one seen in the film,]] though refined by Arnim Zola it becomes its infinitely more terrifying comic book variant - [[LegoGenetics it allows you to reprogram someone's genetics to, essentially, do whatever the hell you want them to, within certain ill-defined power limitations.]] [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Zola]] being [[MadScientist Zola]], immediate uses include EliteMooks and a strange human... griffin... ''thing'' that mostly seems to want to be put out of its misery.
