"A Slime draws near! Command?"

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 game to date.

Characteristics[edit]

Slime is known for its onion/rain 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.

Monsters series[edit]

Dragon Quest Monsters[edit]

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.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart[edit]

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

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker[edit]

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.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2[edit]

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

Variants[edit]

She-slimes[edit]

The she-slime (originally Red Slime/RedSlime) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the very first game, they are basically reddish, ever-so-slightly-stronger slimes.

Despite the name of she-slime, their genders are as ambiguous as those of regular slimes. The change from red slime may be on account that their modern depictions, with more shades available to them than what the graphical limitations of the NES allowed, are more of an orange color than red. According to the games, the she-slimes are a different color than ordinary slimes due to an uncommon genetic mutation; this relative rarity has led them to be referred to as "don't-often-see-slimes".

Guide description: They're bitter rivals of standard slimes, who they match for shape, size and colour, but can't beat as far as fan base goes.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

Gootrude, Bo, Itsy, and Morrie-Morrie all appear to be she-slimes. Of the four, Gootrude is the one who most resembles a she-slime as Bo, Rocket's sister, is a bit smaller and wears a white bow, Itsy is very small, and Morrie-Morrie sports facial hair and a white headband.

Dark Slimes[edit]

The Dark slimes in Dragon Quest VIII are simply black-and-white palette swaps of normal slimes. They are not the same as the Dark Slimes in the Monsters series.

Description A slime from the World of Darkness who has mastered the Slime Spank, a secret attack technique used only by slimes. A fearsome foe indeed.

Dark slimes are capable of using an attack known as the 'Slime Spank', which deals just a bit more than the regular attack of the monster.

Trivia[edit]

  • The original Famicom artwork for a slime, as drawn by Akira Toriyama, had the slippery creature not blue, but a lavender color.
  • 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 from the Wizardry series).[1]
  • 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.
