* Ratigan's henchman Bartholomew from ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective''. In his short amount of screentime he's already drunk the first time we see him and he's sad which he runs out of his beverage, then when Ratigan poors champagne into his fountain he immediately runs over to drink from it, ultimately his intoxicated state leads to his demise-- he accidentally calls Ratigan a rat (which Ratigan ''[[BerserkButton hates]]'') and is fed to his pet cat.

** Also true of Electro's father and probably Dr. Octopus' father, the problem causing both villains to have {{Abusive Childhood}}s and broken homes. To be blunt, as unlucky as he is, Peter Parker had a ''much'' better history than most of his foes.

* In ''Literature/{{Madicken}}'', Abbe's father spends most of his time drinking or sleeping, which puts a lot of stress on his wife. He's a much more sympathetic character though than many other exemples of this trope, because he's a genuinely kind man at heart.

* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' has Pam, Penny's grumpy middle-aged mother who was put out of a job after the bus to Calico Desert broke down, and Shane, Marnie's nephew who is dissatisfied with his job at [[PredatoryBusiness JojaMart]]. Naturally, both of them have Beer as a loved gift.

Naturally, both of them have Beer as a loved gift. The effects are tragic in both cases; Pam's drinking has alienated her daughter, driven away her husband, and left her unable to maintain her own home, and Shane is [[DrowningMySorrows self-medicating for chronic depression]] in [[DeathSeeker the worst way possible]].

* Sam Axe from ''Series/BurnNotice'' is constantly seen knocking back a drink of some sort, with his preferred drink being a mojito. But in spite of he large quantities on liquor he consumes, he's only been noticeably drunk at the beginning of TheFallOfSamAxe, and only ever mentioned having a hangover once. In fact, the way you know something is hitting Sam especially hard is if he '''''refuses''''' to drink!

* Davy Zlatic in ''Theatre/{{Bandstand}}'' was one of the soldiers who liberated Dachau; now he drinks heavily to try to forget the things he's seen.
-->'''Davy:''' I know there's not enough whiskey in the world to forget what I've seen. But I figure, I owe it to myself to try.

* Golgo in ''Webcomic/RiceBoy''. PlayedForDrama and portrayed surprisingly realistically. In his case normal alcohol apparently doesn't cut it for him and instead he drinks a substance known as "Black Drink" made by an apothecary, which is much stronger than most beverages.
