* Every single character in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' Evolution that takes part in the game gets their power via an injection of chemicals. Some of the powers are... questionably useful, though.

* In the ''{{Rifts}}'' [[TabletopRPG pen-and-paper RPG]], the "Juicer" character class gain their superhuman abilities from a constant feed of intravenous drugs. The drawbacks are addiction, permanent organ damage in two years (making removal problematic), and death within seven. As most are shock troops and mercenaries, many die in combat long before that.

* TableTopGames/{{Pathfinder}} has the Alchemist, which trades almost exclusively in super serums, with their JekyllAndHyde Mutagens, as well as many beneficial infusions (spells in potion form).

** 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 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.

** 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 ''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.

** 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.]]
