Oil is a flammable liquid that appears as a hazard in a few Mega Man games.
In Flame Man's stage there are oil pits that makes Mega Man slower when walking on them. If a Fire Telly or Fire Boy drops fire in an oil pit, the oil pit ignites to produce a raging inferno that, like lava, can kill the player instantly upon contact. Pookers can be used in one area to safely pass by oil pits.
In Oil Man's stage, oil appears scattered in the floor in some areas. When Mega Man or any playable Robot Master (except for Oil Man) walks on oil, they will slip and fall, taking a moment to recover. The oil will not kill the player if stepped in. It can be ignited in several ways:
- A Hothead throws a Tackle Fire in its direction.
- Using Fire Storm.
- Fire Man by himself can ignite it.
In Oil Man's stage from the DOS game Mega Man 3, the oil dropping from pipes and drums harms Mega Man.
