* ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' introduces Inkrails, which allow you to grind on them in kid form or swim through them as a squid. Unlike the Inklines used in ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' (and appearing in multiplayer maps in this game as well), these allow you to fire your weapon while riding the Inkrail, which is used as a mechanic in various levels.

** The below mentioned [[ProductPlacement Soap Shoes]] were featured in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' in order to introduce rail sliding to the series. Although the games no longer feature the brand (due to the bankruptcy of the original company), the rail grinding has remained. Originally only Sonic and Shadow could grind. Now anyone can grind, even those without shoes, like Big (who wears sandals instead) and Omega (who's a robot, and thus has no need for clothes). In other words, in the world of Sonic, people really, ''really'' like Soap Shoes.
