    • Down the whole bottle if Cha-Cha/Kayamba/palico finish their healing dance/song after you die.
    • If you're in a party and one person takes all three defeats, make them buy drinks for the rest of the party.
    • If you're in a party of three or four and everyone gets knocked out at once, everyone drinks until they pass out.
  • Take a shot if Cha-Cha/Kayamba/palico heal you right as you use a healing item or leave the area.

  • Take a shot for every time you press L to aim your bowgun because you've been playing Resident Evil: Revelations.
  • Take a shot every time you get violently interrupted when trying to cook steak.
  • Take a shot every time the Deviljho shows up randomly. Or rather, don't, because you'll need to be sober to escape that thing, let alone fight it.
    • Take two shots if the Deviljho Slendermans you. That is, if this unlikely scenario happens to you: you walk up to an area boundary right as the Deviljho at your destination decides to move to the area you're in, and the Deviljho just APPEARS out of nowhere inches from your face.
    • Down the whole bottle if it spawns right underneath you.

  • Take a shot every time you curse the Random Number God for not giving that item you need just one more of.

    • Down the whole bottle if one of your hunting buddies needed a rare drop, and didn't get one, and you didn't need it and got it.
  • Take two shots every time you get more items than you should from a monster. This counts for carving (such as getting 3 Rathalos Wings from one Rathalos or getting multiple Deviljho Tails from one severed tail) and for rare commodities obtained when freehunting (e.g. getting 3 Zinogre Heads from one Zinogre.)
