* {{World of Tanks}} makes it possible with particularly fast vehicles; French light/medium tanks from the ELC AMX on and the US M18 Hellcat are notorious for being able to powerslide. The British Light-and-Medium line from the Tier IV Covenanter to the Tier VII Comet recently joined them.

* ''VideoGame/WarThunder'' Ground Forces is notorious for having all tanks slide around at the slightest bit of turning at speed. Ironic, as it's in most ways more realistic than it's rival, VideoGame/WorldOfTanks.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePolarExpress'', the eponymous train gets derailed and begins to slide out of control when the track dips below the frozen-over surface of a lake. The engineer uses the brake and throttle to pull a J-turn, pointing it back on course, and slowly corrects the direction to line up with the rails on the other side of the lake.

The entire scene is somewhat of a [[JustTrainWrong nightmare]] for those versed in steam locomotive mechanics; not so much for ''steering'' the train with the throttle and break, but more for the fact that such violent and sudden moving of the throttle and Johnson Bar would tear the running gear of any real steam locomotive to shreds.

* In WW2, Britain's Churchill tank certainly wasn't built for speed. But its engine power and gearing meant it could climb steeper slopes than practically every other tank out. One hilltop defensive position in Tunisia, thought impassible for tanks by its German defenders and therefore lightly guarded by mines or anti-tank guns, was over-run by Churchills climbing a slope the Germans only thought to lightly defend. Churchill tank commander John Foley, in his autobiography ''Literature/MailedFist'', records that his Churchills crossed wide anti-tank ditches in the Siegfried Line simply by driving into them. and then climbing out of them as if it were a minor inconvenience. Much to the consternation of the German defenders. Foley also records a case where a Churchill skidded off a road in the Ardennes in winter ice and smow, plunging into a ravine. It landed right side up and was able to climb out again, ascending the precipitous slope with little damage to tank or crew.

* In ''Videogame/EliteDangerous'' the Federal series of ___ships are infamous for their slip-and-slide handling courtesy of their [[EnormousEngine massively oversized engines]] and a hull that weighs more than the sun. The Federal Dropship is the most prominent, as it is extremely rare to see one ''not'' sliding sideways through space at max speed.

* TruthInTelevision in bad weather conditions such as snow and rain. As many of the examples below showcase, even otherwise hard to maneuver vehicles such as armored vehicles and heavy duty trucks can easily slip out of control on snow or wet ground.
