* ''Truth is a scourge'' from FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse lives up to its name. Not only does it force its victims to tell the truth and to keep talking, something in its makeup seems to compel its victims to tell those truths which will most hurt, enrage, or otherwise unsettle the audience. There's a reason Pokey called the stuff "truth poison".

* ''Manga/UQHolder'': Touta accidentally eats a truth serum-laced chocolate off of Yukihime's desk, which causes some chaos around the headquarters as he begins declaring to all his friends [[LoveYouAndEverybody that he loves them]]. Karin initially thought that she had taken the same stuff, only to be informed later that she'd eaten an ordinary chocolate.

** However, as fast-penta is a drug, not everyone reacts the same way. Most exceptions are fatal allergies. People whose work involves sensitive or classified information can have the allergy artificially induced, unless their lives are deemed more important than the secrets they know. Bujold often uses artificial allergies to keep the characters from learning too much too soon. Another exception to the norm is Miles Vorkosigan. Due to his screwed up body chemistry, fast-penta induces a temporary mania in addition to the typical long-windedness. He uses this to his advantage, forcing himself to be discursive and bouncing off the walls reciting ''[[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Richard III]]'' until his interrogators give up and put him back in his cell.

* In issue #12 of ''Comicbook/MsMarvel2014'' SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} put Asgardian truth elixir in the punch at the Valentine's Day ball. He didn't target it or anything, just counted on that, if everybody said what they really thought, he will be able to find if someone had ''other'' than relationship troubles. {{Hilarity Ensue|s}}d. And by this we mean chaos. Which the local superheroine kind of took issue with.

* In an episode of ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', the heroes were searching for the Sword of Veracity, which made whomever held it incapable of lying. Iolaus and the GirlOfTheWeek found themselves in a cave full of swords, so Iolaus grabbed the first sword he could and said she was the ugliest girl he'd ever seen, explaining that the Sword should not allow him to lie. The duo then proceeded to do the same with each sword in turn ("My name is Hercules and I have two heads." "This is a rutabaga.") until she found the right one through a CassandraTruth moment, warning Iolaus of the monster behind him.
