* From ComicBook/{{Spider Man}}'s comic, Flash Thompson's asshole of a father was one, and Flash was too for a while. Flash was smart enough to clean up his act and get help, but sadly, ComicBook/NormanOsborn exploited this in a plot to get revenge on Spidey. At present, it seems Flash is sober, but he has [[ButtMonkey plenty more to worry about..]]

** Mary Jane's dad was this too, and it cost him his marriage and the respect of both his daughters, although Mary Jane eventually reconciled with him a little.
** 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 ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a common trait of the Rieklings - small, primitive, blue-skinned humanoids native to [[GrimUpNorth Solstheim]] who somewhat resemble [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent ice goblins]]. They are known for [[TrashOfTheTitans collecting and hording detritus]] scavenged from the more civilized races, which they "form strange attachments to" and can even be witnessed [[CargoCult worshiping]]. Above all else, they love scavenging any alcoholic beverages they can get their hands on, which they refer to as "fizzydrink."

* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' GaidenGame ''TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}}'', the Ruffian Henchmen from the Ostlander Mercenary warbands have taken their fellows love of alcohol to the extreme and are never sober, in fact they are rarely ever conscious. While their constant state of inebriation make them near fearless in battle, their base combat abilities tend to be compromised somewhat and are unable to use missile weapons.
