''VideoGame/CrashFever'' has the God Killer, a sake said to be capable of making any avatar in ALICE shit-faced drunk in a flash. Oda Nobunaga downs some of the stuff and almost ruins the New Year's party, until you rein the situation back in.

** Such as the Pan-''Dimensional'' Gargle Blaster. Drinking it gives you the message "You feel like your head ''is'' a gold brick with a slice of lemon wrapped around it."
*** However, this drink is a failed ''inversion'' of the trope. The Pan-Dimensional Gargle Blaster is designed to cause absolutely none of the traditional GargleBlaster effects; it shunts all of them to an AlternateSelf in a parallel universe (hence the name). Unfortunately, it turns out that if you're the sort of person who would drink one, the odds are amazingly good another you will be drinking one at the same time, so...

** ''VideoGame/Fallout76'' introduces Nuka Shine, made from the incredibly-radioactive Nuka Cola Quantum and even more nuclear material, just for good measure. It increases unarmed combat and sprint distance, and has a chance to cause the player to [[WhatDidIDoLastNight black out and wake up in a different part of the map]]. Oh, and the first time the player drinks it, they start ''hallucinating''.

Added DiffLines:

** Although it appears to be an ordinary beer, Asgarnian Ale is strong enough to ''dissolve gold''.


** Single-player spinoff ''VideoGame/WestOfLoathing'' has the [[AllNaturalSnakeOil Snake Oiler]] class, whose special ability is brewing liquor and medicine from venomous snake substances and body parts. There's also plentiful use of laudanum, a cocktail of opium and alcohol considered medicinal in the setting (and the era it's based on), even though one NPC visibly has a PTSD-induced addiction to the stuff.



** There also is a miniquest where the player is required to go to several bars in the game and drink the strongest drink at each one, each having a unique and nasty effect.

** There also is a The "Pub Crawl" miniquest where to get into the player is required Barbarian Agility Course involves traveling to go to several bars in almost every pub on the game mainland and drink ordering barbarian-only specialty drinks that are... not exactly on the strongest drink at each one, each having menu. In some pubs, you have to ''sign a unique legal waiver'' before they'll let you have the house special. These drinks are described in gruesome detail, wreak havoc on your stats, [[HilarityEnsues lead to much hilarity ensuing]], and nasty effect.since the barbarians are illiterate, they judge whether you've completed the pub crawl based on how wasted your character is, rather than on the bartenders' signatures on your receipt.


* ''Videogame/DwarfFortress'': It'd seem dwarves make their brews so damned strong it has literally affected their physiology to the point of having a massive, extra-effective liver, and even ''then'' weaker ones will often die from alcohol poisoning. Other species will often pass out with just one serving, and in particular goblins are absolutely terrible at handling that level of booze; most of your goblin visitors that get past the belligerent patrons will probably drink a single mug and drown in their own vomit afterwards. A GoodBadBug in an older version caused cats to die of alcohol poisoning just from trying to clean themselves off after a walk through the tavern. It also evaporates so quickly when exposed to fire it's almost (though not quite, [[VideogameCrueltyPotential unfortunately]]) explosive.

The ingredients include a crushed television set and a flock of pureed starlings. Since the robot itself doubles as a blender, the result fries his circuits and switches his personality to a [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy happy drunk]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' and ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' has the 3rd Street Saints-sponsored energy drink "Saints Flow". Pierce is contractually prohibited from revealing the ingredients, but at one point is hinted that Tiger Milk is one of them. In one news ticker it's also said that a shipment was recalled after testing positive for Human Growth Hormone. According to Asha and Johnny Gat it tastes like ass, it's prohibited in California and it's rumored to cause birth defects ''in adults''. The advertisements sell it as "If cocaine and coffee fucked in an alley, this would be the baby they left in the trash can"


* In the video game of ''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'', one puzzle requires you to get KarlMarx hammered, with a combination of several potent liquors, topped off with ''[[{{Squick}} spoiled chocolate milk]]''.

* ''GemstoneIV'' introduced a blackout-inducing drink called Eldreth's Death-rum, based on a real player-made concoction served during a gaming convention room party. Several employees watched as a brave attendee offered to try the stuff, pronounced it "not that bad" and started to walk away with no ill effects -- before suddenly dropping to his knees five steps later.

* In ''VideoGame/GalaxyOnFire2'', in the Supernova expansion, there is a certain alcohol introduced into the story, discovered and served by Mkkt Bkkt, that causes those who drink it to start sputtering random noises (it sounds rather like they are reading the noises from a comic page out loud rather than imitating the sounds). This happens mere SECONDS after the first sip, about four or five seconds to be more precise. To top it all off, the only way to cure the effects without waiting a rather long amount of time involves a type of frog venom that can VIOLENTLY EXPLODE if it's even shaken around too much.

* While visiting Hengsha in DeusExHumanRevolution Adam has the option of buying some [[http://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Cocktails drink cocktails]] from a local club called The Hive. He can only ever get one of each, but given their descriptions he probably just decided to stop before he ended up in a coma.

* From the ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' series, the contents of [[DrunkenMaster Bo Rai Cho's]] gourd. Outworld is comparable to Asia, so perhaps it's a variation of Baijiu, the stronger versions of which are called 'Chinese Lighter Fluid'. Regardless, whatever it is it's extremely flammable, can even cause Bo Rai Cho himself to spew and is lethal if imbibed by anyone else. Indeed one of his fatalities in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' involves him force-feeding his opponent liquor, causing them to vomit forth their own intestines.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has a list of dangerously potent alcoholic drinks the PC can give to Oghren (or Wynne, though Wynne prefers wine). The only drinks that ''don't'' count as gargle blasters are the watered-down ale and the wine. And the brandy. More amazingly, in ''Awakening'', Oghren is able to easily shrug off the darkspawn blood (and other mysterious-and-horrible ingredients) used for the Joining ritual of the Grey Wardens with a loud burp and a claim that it was "Not bad", while other characters either pass out and have freakish nightmares or die hideous deaths.
