Oil Spike is one of the abilities Evil Cole uses in PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale. It allows Evil Cole to drop a puddle of oil onto the ground where it would partially consume and immobilize his enemies with a mound that is also living. It is one of the abilities which fuctions much differently, much like Hellfire Rockets compared to the original game counterpart.
In its original state, the Oil Spike was called 'Spikers' where three moving offshoot-like puddles of oil popped up from Cole's command and Spiker enemies were forged from the erupting puddles and they took their own behavior from there.
However in Playstation Allstars Battle Royale, this design was changed and only one mound of oil popped up to temporarily swallow its foe instead of creating Corrupted but would appear once an opponent stepped into a puddle drop.
