"If you're looking for speed, my guy was born to run. He's unstoppable! Sure, he's run from every battle he's fought, but at least he's undefeated, eh?"

—-- Man with metal slime, Slimopolis, Dragon Quest VI

The Metal Slime (formerly Metaly due to display constraints) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the original game, it is a slime with a metallic body rumored to be composed of the fabled Orichalcum alloy.

Characteristics[edit]

As far as appearances go, the metal slime is nearly identical to a normal slime, with its only notable differences being its gray coloring and metallic luster.

Metal slimes are infamous monsters in the series, and for a good reason: they have one of the highest experience point payouts of any enemy in the games, exceeded only by far stronger monsters and other metal monsters; even some bosses pay out less than a single metal slime does. This comes at a catch, however: metal slimes rarely appear, and when they do, they usually run in an instant, often without a scratch due to a very high speed stat. Even if the player gets lucky and a metal slime or two decide to stick around for a turn, nearly all normal attacks will either miss or do a measly 1 point of damage, though their low HP means every hit counts. Nearly all forms of spell and skill are completely ineffective against metal slimes. There are very few exceptions to this.

Metal monster weapons (such as those found in the Joker games) have a good chance at connecting with a metal slime, and the poison needle, with its 12.5%(18) chance to kill instantly if it connects, or even Hela's hammer's 37.5%(38), are particularly effective as human weapons go.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest[edit]

Metal slimes make their first appearance as the greatest source of experience from any monster. The player may start dealing normal damage to metal slimes as they near the level 30 cap. Due to the fact that true spell immunity does not exist in the original NES version of I, Sizz and Sizzle have a higher chance (1/16) to slay the slimes than critical hits (1/64).

The fire breath granted by the dragon form after casting Puff! is capable of instantly defeating metal slimes. The poison needle is also capable of instantly slaying them when it works.

The remakes allow for the recruiting of metal slimes, though the chances of one wanting to join the party are abysmally low, combining with their rarity and difficulty in defeating to make them one of the hardest monsters to recruit in the game. Their plethora of resistances and metal slime stats can make them worth the effort, though they are not nearly as versatile as liquid metal slimes.

It is interesting to note that it is possible to put metal slimes to sleep in this title, and that normal damage may start being dealt once a character's attack power gets high enough.

Metal slimes may first appear on Celeste Isle, where the hunter mechs hint to their residence on the island. They can also show up on Fert Isle. However, "yellow-bellies" will not appear on the overworld in any of these instances. The metal menagerie on Palaish Isle is the only place where metal slimes can be seen before engaging in a battle, though this area cannot be accessed until after the player solidifies his or her position in the finals of the tournament.

Given their resilience, metal slimes are one of the most difficult monsters to scout, though not nearly as much as the stronger metal monsters the player can run into. In the early parts of the game, a critical hit during the scouting process is one of the most reliable ways to scout one, though a great deal of luck is still needed.

Metal slimes are Rank D monsters. Among other places, they can be encountered in a cave in the Iceolation part of the Island.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

Goodith, Goosashi, Gooshido and Tokyo Tom all appear to be metal slimes.

When defeated quick enough in this game, the metal slimes will drop silvery sludge.
