** 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.

* Parnell from ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}'' has a Rage Trooper serum injector built into his armor. While CastFromHitpoints, it increases firing speed, jump height, and movement speed, while decreasing reload time. In-universe, it causes long term adrenal failure, something debated about by Parnell and his teammates.

* An explosion of "meta-gas" during a gang feud on ''StaticShock'' gave Static and a bunch of other troubled teenagers in Dakota different powers. One TeenGenius MonsterOfTheWeek learned how to control it, and could grant himself different short-term powers through short-term exposure.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': [[spoiler: It seems Rod Reiss has an assortment of vials in his possession that contain a serum which causes people to transform into Titans. There also seems to be different serums for different types. He claims one is the mightiest Titan and tries to get Hysteria to drink it. A BodyguardBetrayal and ambush causes him to lick it up himself, transforming him into the largest Titan seen so far. Eren later drinks one labelled "Armor" which enables him to have the armor producing ability seen by the Female Titan.]]
