* The ''Film/InspectorGadget'' movie had the Gadget Oil Slick, which spread toothpaste on the floor. More traditionally, Sanford Scolex's limo had an oil slick sprayer, which he used against John Brown's [[TheAllegedCar Chevette]].
** The second one gave Gadget a ''bubble gum launcher'' that deployed from his hat and sprayed bright pink, extremely sticky bubble gum. There was also an actual oil-slick gadget that popped out of his right hand and was only used for the sake of a VisualPun: the bartender told an undercover Gadget that he had to "grease a few palms" (i.e. bribe people) to find out where Dr. Claw was. Well, Gadget [[ExactWords greased the guy's palm]], all right--[[LiteralMinded with top-grade axle grease!]] Cue BarBrawl.

* Tested on ''Series/MythBusters'' where the guys found that an oil slick made it very difficult but not impossible for the pursuer to maintain control of his car. Still, if used in a real-world situation with the element of surprise it would be more likely to work.
** It worked better in [[TheSixties the 1960s]], when most ''Film/JamesBond'' films were made, since most cars of the time, [[CoolCar up to the magnificent Aston Martins or Ferrari Daytonas]], had narrow tyres of poor quality and construction. And of course, no traction control or anti-lock braking.

* Oil Slicks are the first-level Green item in ''DiddyKongRacing.'' They'll send someone spinning, slowing them down, and, in the DS VideoGameRemake, they also [[InterfaceScrew screw up their car's steering]] for a few seconds afterward.
