Healslime

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Healer (Class).

The Healslime (formerly known as the healer), is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest II, it is a floating, tentacled slime (looking much like a jellyfish) that can heal its allies.

Characteristics[edit]

Healslimes are similar to jellyfish, having blue, float-shaped heads with yellow tentacles dangling underneath. Their eyes are often the same yellow color as their tentacles, though there are instances where their eyes are white.

While stronger than normal Slimes, Healslimes are still mediocre combatants and make themselves most threatening when they heal other, more powerful monsters before the player has a chance to subdue them. Because of this, defeating the Healslimes in an enemy group first is often the best course of action if the player cannot defeat the other enemies before they can be healed. Many enemies such as the Restless armour have the ability to summon a Healslime in battle and it is the most often summoned monster in all of the Dragon Quest Series.

Healslimes prove to be the first instance in the series where monsters can actually help the player in combat: Ragnar McRyan is assisted by a Healslime named Healie during his quest to save a group of missing children.

Description Unselfish slimes that are always on standby to step in and save others. Often summoned by their monster mates for support.
(extended) They greet friends with their right tentacles, foes with their left, and everyone else with the others.

Note: Healslimes are also summoned by Restless armours for backup.

Dragon Quest Monsters[edit]

A Healslime (then Healer) is the first boss monster that the player encounters, this particular Healslime being Hale, one of the King of GreatTree's favorite monsters. Hale will want to join upon his defeat, an offer the player should take up due to the healing and support spells the Healslime can offer.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2[edit]

Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart[edit]

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker[edit]

Healslimes appear as rank F members of the Slime family and are the last rank F monster in that family. They can be found wandering about Xeroph Isle during daytime.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2[edit]

The healslime is a Rank F monster in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

The best friend of the player's character, Rocket, is a Healslime named Hooly. He wears a red scarf. Hooly's father, Mr. Hooly, and Curate Rollo also appear to be Healslimes.

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below[edit]

Healix, the somewhat timid healslime, is a major character in the game. He looks like every other healslime, with the notable expection of having a bejeweled crown perched on his head. Also, Healix has not been corrupted by evil, like all the other monsters in the game, thanks to the aforementioned crown, given to him by his father.

Related Monsters[edit]

Cureslime[edit]

Cureslimes look like healslimes, but with red/magenta colored floats and greenish tentacles. Cureslimes can be considered a step up from healslimes. While healslimes typically use Heal, cureslimes can use Midheal or even Fullheal. Aside from superior healing prowess, cureslimes are also more passable as combative monsters, though they are still very weak when compared to the other monsters they appear alongside of.

Sootheslime[edit]

Similar to the healslime, Sootheslimes (ベホイムスライム) are jellyfish-shaped slimes that float in the air. They have green bodies with orange tentacles sprouting out from the bottom. Like all slimes, they have wide open eyes and a silly toothless grin.
