** The main plot is about the government intentionally ''destroying'' the main phlebotinum with war, [[spoiler:by creating shell corporations that hire Contractors into proxy wars with the covert goal of sending them to mutually kill each other until the stragglers can be mopped up by government cleanup crews]].



* All Phlebotinum in ''Film/{{District 9}}'' has a biological component, so while everybody is stockpiling {{BFG}}s, only the slum residents can use them.

* The CentralTheme of the ''Film/MadMax'' series; before the Apocalypse, wars were waged mainly for control of petroleum supplies. Afterwards, "Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice."

And after the Oil wars came the Water wars, and after the water wars came the Blood (slave) wars, etc.


Added DiffLines:

* Many of the conflicts in the ''VideoGame/FarCry'' series are fueled by valuable black market products: mutants, blood diamonds, slaves, and LOTS of drugs.

* Satirized in ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgersInTheTwentyFourthAndAHalfCentury''. The supply of Illudium Phosdex (the shaving cream atom) have become dangerously low. Rather than developing renewable sources of depilatories, our IdiotHero and his Eager Young Space Cadet are sent to claim the Planet X (the only known source) only to end up destroying the entire planet in a pointless conflict with Marvin the Martian (also there for the same purpose).

As an American executive points out: you don't have to refine water, just slap a fancy label on a bottle and you can sell it for a higher price than oil.

* The whole ''{{Bionicle}}'' story has its roots in the Core War, a massive world war over Energized Protodermis that emerged from the core of the planet, the unstable nature of which ended up [[EarthShatteringKaboom splitting Spherus Magna into three]]. Which it is quite likely that the [[spoiler: [[TheManBehindTheMan Energized]] [[SentientPhlebotinum Protodermis]] [[EldritchAbomination Entity]] [[ThePlan planned all along.]]]]

--->I remember it really stuck in my mind, in a very peaceful city like Melbourne, our southern capital, or some city, it took ten days after a severe oil shortage for the first shot to be fired. And I thought, what if it went on? That was one of the things when we did the first Mad Max.
