* In the film ''Casper'', Carrigan tries to kill Dibs, who covers the floor with what appears to be oil. Sure enough, Carrigan slips on the oil and goes skidding across the floor before crashing out the window.

* ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''. Film/JamesBond uses an oil slick device in his CoolCar to send a pursuing Mook car to its doom.
* The villains in the live-action ''Film/InspectorGadget'' film use this to make the protagonist's car slip, eventually making it flip over and tumble.



* KITT from ''Series/KnightRider'' does this regularly. One spectacular use of it involved causing a pursuing Armoured Assault Vehicle to slide out of control and unable to stop, and at the last minute turbo boosting over a storage depot while the pursuer plowed into it, blowing the depot and itself up in the process.



* The vehicles in Steve Jackson Games' ''TabletopGame/CarWars'' have this as an optional extra. For a little extra, it can be ON FIRE.



* The G-6155 Interceptor from ''VideoGame/SpyHunter''.
* You could install one in the second ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' game. Lay some slick down and watch the fun.

* In Scooby Doo: Night of 100 Frights, there are areas which are covered in oil or are just generally slippery, which hinder Scooby's progress until he manages to find the professor's Plunger invention - after which walking on slippery surfaces becomes a cinch. Ruins going down the slide in the playground, mind you.
* Sub Zero could ice a patch of the ground in some of the MortalKombat games. Typically the victim would slide forward.

* ThatOneLevel for some of the SoulCalibur campaign modes would have the floor act like this. Even worse when it's just you skidding all over, whereas the opponent is as solid as a rock.

* In ''VideoGame/CarriesOrderUp'', leaky pipes start leaving puddles on the diner floor. You can walk right through them with ease, but [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning trying to spin through them]], which normally lets you avoid colliding with customers, will leave you flat on your butt.
