This article is about the enemy, for the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Slime (Class).

The slime is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the very first game, slimes have since become the series' mascot due to their popularity and iconic qualities. The basic slime has been in every Dragon Quest to date.

[edit] Characteristics

The basic slime is known for its onion/droplet shape, round eyes, and goofy, toothless smile, the former two traits having become the ones shared amongst nearly all other slimes.

They are typically the weakest enemies in every game, having no abilities and being easily disposed of, and likely the first monster the player ever encounters in a battle. However, starting with Dragon Quest IV, there will occasionally be stronger slimes that can call on others of their kind; they may form a king slime when eight gather and starting in Dragon Quest IX three slimes may join to form the slime stack.

In some games, slimes can be domesticated into pets and others have gained the ability to speak to humans in their own tongue. In recent translations, all slimes have a certain verbal tic of replacing certain words and syllables with similar, 'slimier' ones, such as saying goo instead of good, gooman instead of human, and slime instead of time, to give just a few (or goo) examples.

[edit] Appearances

[edit] Main series

Slimes make their debut as one of the first monsters the player is likely to encounter alongside she-slimes and drackies.

[edit] Monsters series

A slime is the first monster the player has on their team, that particular slime having once been the pet of the previous king of GreatTree.

As was the case with the previous two titles, the slime is once again the starting monster.

In a break from tradition, the slime is not the first monster given to the player, who is instead offered a choice of either a platypunk, mischievous mole, or dracky. The slime does appear on the first island inhabited by wild monsters that the player visits, Infant Isle, along with several uncharted islands, and is likely the first wild monster encountered in the game.

Slimes are the first monster encountered in the game aside from the monsters that the player has to choose from at the start of the game. Slimes, when synthesised over level twenty, create a Slime X. Two level fifty Slime X's make a Slime XY.

[edit] Trivia

  • Unlike his contemporaries, longtime Nintendo Power staff writer (and current Nintendo of America localization manager) Alan Averill never had a photo of him printed in the magazine; instead, he was represented by a plush Slime doll.
  • The internet MMORPG Kingdom of Loathing has a monster called Irritating Series of Random Encounters which is a group of 8 slimes. It is a reference to the random encounters of most RPG games.
  • In an interview, series creator Yūji Horii revealed that his inspiration for this enemy was some "slime-looking enemy" (possibly the creeping crud[1]) from the Wizardry series.[2]
  • Issue 277 of Nintendo Power featured a Slime in the Star Power section, where the "gooey blue mascot" had its career as one of many "hapless punching bags" charted, as well as its physiology analyzed. The section also showcased a handful of other types of Slimes, such as the Metal Slime and Slime Knight.
