Sticky Oil is an item found in Mario Kart Arcade GP. In the game, the player can toss the Sticky Oil backwards (and only backwards) to another player. If the player gets a successful hit, the hit player's traction will decrease significantly; even if the player throws the item without hitting the opponent, the Sticky Oil will stay in the spot it was thrown, serving as a stage hazard.
