The metal king slime (originally King Metal; MetalKing / Metal King in later translations due to display constraints) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV, it is a metallic version of the king slime that usually gives the greatest amount of experience of any monster in the games it appears in, with very few exceptions.
As the name would suggest, metal king slimes are king slimes of a metallic color. Their crowns are different in color to that of the king slimes' as well, bearing shades of purple or blue.
Like all other metal monsters, metal king slimes have extremely high defense and speed, give an absurd amount of experience points when defeated, and often flee from battle instead of fighting. Their HP is much higher than that of most metal monsters, and they are also fairly competent when it comes to fighting, something that metal slimes and liquid metal slimes usually aren't.

Metal king slimes share their first appearance with their variants, king slimes and king cureslimes. They do not appear until near the end of the game and are, in the original, NES release, the greatest source of experience in the game: they lose this position to platinum king jewels in the remakes.
Because their HP is so much higher than other metal monsters, it is usually recommended that Alena be used to fight them given her high critical hit ratio, which negates the monstrous defense of these metal globs.

Metal king slimes appear as rank S members of the slime family and can be synthesized via quadrulinear synthesis using four liquid metal slimes. Players can also attempt to scout them in Palaish Isle's metal menagerie, Tartarus during the post-game, and certain scouts that might use them, though in all instances the monsters can prove incredibly difficult to impress.
The metal king slime is a Rank S monster in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2. It is practically invincible.
