** In yet another Batman-villain case, the mainstream comics continuity ComicBook/HarleyQuinn, although it isn't often mentioned in the comics, has mildly augmented strength, agility, and healing due to a herbal elixir Poison Ivy gave her in her first appearance. This is probably to give some justification for how a thin, petite woman can beat up guys who are much bigger than her and have martial arts training.

* Creator/OsamuTezuka's superhero Big X (best known in the West for various cameo appearances he put in in various ''Anime/AstroBoy'' productions) got his powers from a SuperSoldier serum his father was forced to develop for the Axis Powers during WWII. The drug was injected & came in two stages, one shot to make him NighInvulnerable & another turned him into a giant. In the anime this was changed to a pendant that emitted special EM waves due to MoralGuardians' concerns about the similarity to the then-emerging Heroin epidemic.

* During the WarOfThePacific Chilean soldiers developed a toxic drink nicknamed "La Chupilca del Diablo" (The Devil's Booze), which consisted of a mix of strong Aguardiente and ''black gunpowder''. According to that era's records, the unholy mixture caused the Chilean soldiers to go absolutely ''berserker'' and able to ignore pain or fatigue, but because of the toxic nature of the drink, this SuperSerum was only used on extreme situations. For the record, that war had Peru and Bolivia teaming up against Chile, and Chile ''won that war.''

** 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...?
