Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Bizarre Alien Biology is a staple of Speculative Fiction. One of the common ways of showing it off is to show the oddity of extraterrestrial diets, especially in regards to Earth food. Perhaps vinegar is toxic to these guys, but they need regular infusions of arsenic to survive?
With this in mind, it's no surprise that certain mundane-to-us substances might make them a bit... funny.
Ordinary substances being intoxicants for aliens (or similarly otherworldly beings) is very likely to come up in stories that feature them. It can be serious; for example, exploring the ramifications of ginger addiction. Of course, it can also be Played for Laughs, because it's funny to watch someone get trashed on gummi bears.
You can also see the equivalent in fantasy fiction; it's fairly common for certain kinds of vampires to react to human blood as though it were a drug.

See also Klingons Love Shakespeare, I Can't Believe It's Not Heroin! and Mars Wants Chocolate. Compare and contrast No Biochemical Barriers. Sister Trope to A.I. Getting High. If it's not intoxicating, just really tasty, see Aliens Love Human Food.

In the Confederation of Valor series the alien Krai drink a beverage called "sah", which for them is the equivalent of a hot cup of tea. For humans, it's the equivalent of a hot cup of PCP with an amphetamine chaser. The law requires that anyone buying it be a Krai, and holds the Krai in question responsible if a human gets any.

The trolls in Homestuck aren't actually supposed to eat sopor slime, but Gamzee never learned that due to his guardian always being out at sea. As a result, he's an Erudite Stoner. Once the slime runs out, however...
In a very literal example, Meulin and Kurloz apparently smoke catnip as cannabis.
Judging from Terezi's hangover, soda (or at least Faygo) gets trolls drunk. At the very least, it's common Fanon.

According to the Vampire Knight Fanbook, vampires do not consume human blood for nourishment: they are born incurably addicted to it and the withdrawal will drive them insane. Blood-substitute pills were developed by vampire scientists to remove their dependency on humans. To add further confusion, the act of feeding itself is almost always presented with erotic overtones, comparable to foreplay or rape depending on context.

In the Honor Harrington novels, the otherwise carnivorous treecats find celery irresistible. In fact, it was their pilfering of human celery that led to the first human-treecat encounter. Turns out it that the genetically modified celery grown on Spinx actually enhances treecat telepathy, although they find the taste of all types of celery irresistible.
Note, however, that the treecats don't actually have the enzymes to digest cellulose, so eating too much celery can be rather bad for them.

In the Doctor Who Expanded Universe, Time Lords are very hard to get drunk. Ginger pop, however, hits them hard. Shakespeare once spiked the Doctor's beer, and Hilarity Ensued. (Though unlike in the Mork & Mindy example, it's the ginger that's an intoxicant, not the carbon dioxide.)

Alien Nation has sour milk as akin to alcohol. Considering that milk contains lactose and does ferment if handled properly, this simply means that they really like kumiss or kefir, or just plain old yogurt and cheese. Since human cells and the bacteria involved in milk spoilage produce lactic acid under anaerobic conditions this might suggest that the aliens are more like fungi than mammals and produce alcohol when exhausted.

Butterbeer, in the Harry Potter novels, while mild to wizards, is depicted as being quite intoxicating to house-elves.
It's debatable just how "soft" butterbeer actually is. The simplest explanation is that it is a mildly alcoholic malt beverage: not enough alcohol to have a major effect on even a very young (Harry has his first nip at 14, and the stuff doesn't seem to be age-restricted like firewhisky) human, but if a house elf (roughly half the size of even an adolescent human) rips through a six-pack in under an hour, well.... We should note that historical Tudor-era England had a drink called butterbeer, made of butter, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, and ale; it's not terribly alcoholic—since it involves diluting beer, and if you use a weaker English brew like session ale (beer in the 16th century would've been weaker, as it was the safe alternative to drinking water and the English hadn't gotten ahold of tea yet)—but still enough you could get drunk after a few pints. Here's one of numerous recipes.

The most common illegal drug for Discworld trolls is Slab, ammonium chloride cut with radium. There are plenty of others, as well.
Lower on the harmful/addiction scale, molten sulfur seems to be the troll equivalent to beer. Even some human bars serve it, though it needs to be handled with heavy gloves and poured in an insulated mug.
Similarly, many Discworld vampires attend support groups to help them give up drinking blood.

In Plus-Sized Elf, french fries are this for Elfuda, an... elf from another dimension who has developed an addiction to the deep-fried potato treats to the point of putting on more than a few extra pounds. Unfortunately, elves from her dimension are known for being lithe and graceful, meaning she has to find a way to shed that weight before she can go back. Which she succeeds by the first chapter but decides to come back to eat fries. Her only grief was that she wanted to know how to lose weight to go through the dimension door (which work with weight sensor) so she can visit her family from time to time but she'll rather laze up in the human world than the frugal magic world.

Vampires in Vampire: The Masquerade can't consume drugs or alcohol, but feeding off a human with such substances in their system will affect them. Some vampires will become addicted enough to intentionally seek out intoxicated victims, although this addiction is nothing compared to their need for blood itself.
A vampire drinking the blood of a changeling can suffer some truly bizarre effects, including hallucinations, emotional outbursts, or being love-struck.

In The Transformers: All Hail Megatron, after the Decepticons have been defeated and driven from Earth, Ironhide and Optimus Prime take a break to relax and drink some enriched, weapons grade radioactive isotopes, which they treat like hard liquor.
Expanded upon in More Than Meets the Eye; there are a variety of Cybertronian liquors, ranging from a "weak energon spritzer" favored by prudes like Ultra Magnus, to "weapons grade nucleon" that can knock a Transformer out for hours. It's even possible to become the robotic equivalent of an alcoholic, by turning off your "fuel intake modulation chip" and overindulging. This happens to Trailcutter. It's also possible to forcibly turn said chip on permanently, forcing the bot to go cold turkey, through Percussive Maintenance. This also happens to Trailcutter.

In District 9, the alien Prawn have a voracious hankering for cat food. Black markets spring up for the stuff and all. We can speculate they get high on tyrosine or taurine in the fish protein — other food would do it, but cat food is cheap (and funny).

Hivers in Sword of the Stars have taste and smell organs that are wired in a way that strongly fermented human foods, especially cheese, becomes like mild narcotics to them. It's mentioned in the supplementary novels that cheese is one of humanity's main exports to the hivers.
On the flip side, raw, unprocessed garlic is dangerous to hivers because of their over-sensitive olfactory organs. Hiver warriors eat cloves of it as a manhood ritual.

In the Young Wizards series, chocolate has a variety of effects on different alien species; it acts as a drug for some, but others just like how it tastes. It's also why UFOs really visit Earth. Carmela forces an entire battalion of aliens to back down by threatening a wrapped chocolate bar in the eighth book.

Death Note: applesnote (or any given Shinigami's Trademark Favorite Food) have the same effect on Shinigami as cigarettes or alcohol do on humans, and Ryuk actually goes through withdrawal symptoms if he can't have any.
It's unclear whether or not Ryuk was lying about this. He does get really weird when he doesn't have apples, but when he becomes unable to communicate with Light for a long time he snaps out of it immediately and goes about his business. It's possible that he just really likes apples and is trying to annoy Light into giving him more. Supported by the fact that other Shinigami develop tastes for other foods when they visit Earth. One takes a liking to chocolate, while another enjoys bananas.

Animorphs
Instant maple and ginger oatmeal is addictive to Yeerks, makes them lose control over their hosts, replaces part of their brain stem, and drives them crazy. Yes, the characters realize that it's absurd. It veers into the horrific when you realize that the oatmeal also removes the Yeerk's need to leave its host head occasionally, and it makes the Yeerk immortal. The poor host is going to have an insane alien slug in his brain till he dies.
Ax seems to develop a near addiction to anything related to taste, as his species normally have no sense of taste. Some of the things he enjoys gorging himself with include: cinnamon buns, chili, engine oil and cigarette butts. The human race ends up exchanging doughnuts for alien technology.

As they're based on earth animals, some Cyantian species are susceptible to ordinary catnip, and not just the cat-like ones.

The Gua in First Wave can easily get addicted to table salt, although their High Command frowns on such weakness and orders the addicts killed. This was discovered by accident when Foster was interrogating a wounded Gua and poured salt on the open wound. The result was a seriously stoned Gua. Given the Gua mastery of genetic engineering, it's strange they don't remove this weakness from their hybrid husks.

The Martian Manhunter loves Oreo Cookies. Really loves Oreo cookies. (Or possibly "Chocos".)
In The Sandman, he celebrates meeting one of the Endless by sharing a box with Scott Free at the Watchtower.
In a story he tells to Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, it turns out they have an effect on his Martian physiology similar to nicotine. Later, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle decide to prank him by buying every single box of cookies in a radius of several blocks to keep them away from him. To their horror, J'onn turns into a raging maniac hellbent on quelling his munchies. After calming down, he used his abilities as a shapeshifter to literally rip out the affected bits of his body, and later enjoyed a more normal relation with the snack, though he still greatly enjoys it. (However, when Wonder Woman questions whether any of that actually happened, he responds that it was a good story.)

Futurama
Bender, being a robot fueled by alcohol, malfunctions as if heavily inebriated whenever he doesn't drink enough. He even develops a patch of rust around his mouth, mirroring a human's 5 o'clock shadow. Since all robots are powered by alcohol, being based on Professor Farnsworth's original design, all of them may act like this if deprived of booze. This leads to a montage reminiscent of every alcoholism story where he wanders the streets, tormented by signs like "No Liquor License", "Water Fountain" and "Christian Science Reading Room".
"Hell is Other Robots" has Bender getting high by overloading on electricity, complete with an LSD-reminiscent hallucination when he first tries "jacking on".
Anchovies are either addictive to Decapodians like Zoidberg (which led to anchovies being eaten into extinction), or they just taste ridiculously delicious. Or both.

In Drowtales, chocolate is an addictive narcotic to the drow, with effects not unlike cannabis. There's an underground trade for low quality ones at the local Wizarding School, and high concentration doses are imported from the surface world used by the rich.

A variation appeared in Space: Above and Beyond, Cooper becomes addicted to a certain painkiller while being treated for injuries. The drug is no more addictive than any other painkiller to normal humans, but when used on In-Vitroes like Coop, the addiction rate is close to 82% for a single dose. He also meets an In-Vitroe prostitute addicted to the same drug, and Colonel McQueen is a recovered addict himself.

In Space Beasts, various Earth foodstuffs are dangerous to Extra Terrestrials and Magical Creatures. First of all Intelligent Herons the Aves have extreme reactions whenever they eat strawberries; they don't get addicted, but for the male Aves they seem to have a similar effect as mixing ecstasy with Viagra. The male Aves get a painful long-lasting erection and also they get a fierce desire to hump anything they can get their hands on. Zander ends up assaulting his own wife in public after tasting a strawberry, and Revel rapes the Ant Girl Yin after she force-fed him some strawberry champagne; both felt extreme shame and embarrassment once they snapped out of it.
As for Magical Races (or more specifically their half human descendants), each species of Fae has its own drug: for Elves it's wasabi, for Fairies, peanut butter, for goblins, bananas. For half human/half Fae these addictions are extremely powerful. The only way to bring them 'back down to Earth' when they give in to their addiction is through physical pain—normally that means a spanking.
Some species of Humanimal (specifically prehistoric species like dinosaurs) can be extremely sensitive to modern foods. Rodan the Pteranodon Man finds that Chocolate has an effect on him similar to the effect that strawberries have on male Aves. He almost gets demoted when he rapes an enemy girl soldier.

In the Star Wars Legends the Arcona can become addicted to table salt, and there's even a quick and easy indicator. The entry in the Essential Guide to Alien Species features an excerpt from the journals of Mammon Hoole (a member of a species of shapeshifters who uses his abilities to further his job as an anthropologist when the local species is likely to eat outsiders) describes an encounter he had with a young male of the species who was ready to mate, and had gone through a depressingly logical and tedious process to decide which of a selection of females it was going to be. When the young man, with Hoole in tow, reached the domicile of the lucky woman, he was shocked to find that since he had last seen her, her eyes had turned from green to gold, giving away her salt addiction and marking her as unsuitable for mating.
Another character, who had started training at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy, became salt addicted when Tionne Solusar made her famous pot roast for dinner. Two days later, all the salt in the Academy was gone, and the gold-eyed Arcona was kicked out.

Lum and Ten (and, implying by extension, any other Oni) from Urusei Yatsura would get drunk off of "umeboshi" — otherwise known as pickled plums. Note that they're otherwise immune to alcohol, drugs and poison. It's one of those "reversed reaction" things — in Japan, they're commonly eaten as a hangover cure. There was also an alien fruit juice that had that effect on humans (and not on oni).

Sgt. Frog:
High levels of humidity can cause Keronians to act drunk, though this usually only affects Keroro. It also increases their strength, intelligence and reaction time. This is used to justify why the usually lazy and weak Keroro is the leader of his group: the humidity is just naturally higher on their homeworld, where he performs at peak efficiency.
For a more literal example, earth's star fruit have an effect on Keronians (Keroro's race) that Kururu literally describes as similar to prescription drugs. They don't pass out or anything, but it gives them a sense of extreme well-being and an extreme desire for more. To the point where Keroro dreams of making all food in the world transform into star fruit...

On an episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Sabrina becomes addicted to pancakes (part of an old Spellman family curse, of which there were many), and at one point gorges herself to the point of bloating. When she tries to go cold turkey, she experiences withdrawal symptoms, hallucinating that Salem is a pile of pancakes asking whether she is hungry, imagining that the school is putting on an elaborate musical number imploring her to eat pancakes, and dreaming that a giant syrup bottle tries to persuade her to come away to a haven for witches addicted to pancakes, where she can eat to her heart's content. It was a really weird episode.
One of the suspected causes of the Salem Witch Trials was ergot poisoning from spoiled rye bread

In The Company Novels, chocolate (referred to as Theobromos) is the only thing that can intoxicate the time-traveling operatives, and thus you get things like one character having a "dealer" in premium chocolate.

Diaries of a Madman has quite a few, but the naga are probably the most extreme example, as mercury is used as a recreational drug.

Expanded upon in More Than Meets the Eye; there are a variety of Cybertronian liquors, ranging from a "weak energon spritzer" favored by prudes like Ultra Magnus, to "weapons grade nucleon" that can knock a Transformer out for hours. It's even possible to become the robotic equivalent of an alcoholic, by turning off your "fuel intake modulation chip" and overindulging. This happens to Trailcutter. It's also possible to forcibly turn said chip on permanently, forcing the bot to go cold turkey, through Percussive Maintenance. This also happens to Trailcutter.

Captain Future:
One of the characters has a pet called Eek who eats metals, preferring heavy ones. Large doses of silver or gold were shown to make him rather drunk.
In one of the books, Otho (a shapeshifting android), disguised as a human, goes to investigate in a bar. First, he drinks a bottle of Gargle Blaster without any visible effect, then he orders wine... laced with radium chloride. That one works.
