Jackie Chun using the Drunken Fist

Jackie Chun uses it against Goku in the final of the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament. Using this style, he is able to emulate a set of unpredictable movements. Goku responds by using his own Crazy Fist attacks. When Yamcha reveals the name of the technique, Goku says that the Drunken Fist is one of his grandfather's special techniques.

Jiya instinctively uses it against Steth (possessing Vamp) when his suit was powered by Kaede's alcohol instead of the usual water.
