King slime

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The King slime is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen, they are giant, crown-wearing blobs that lords over the plebian plobs and are the result of regular slimes fusing together.

Characteristics

King slimes appear to be large, engorged slimes, notably due to their chubby cheeks imposing on the edges of their toothless grins. Going along with their kingly status, they wear crowns, usually shown as being gold-rimmed with purple and green striped fabric. As shown in an optional cutscene in Dragon Quest VII, the crown is what maintains the fusion status and the king will disperse into its component slimes if it is removed.

In terms of strength, king slimes are a massive step up from the average slime in all parameters, especially HP and attack. They are often shown as being versed in magic, normally having access to Midheal and Zing in most games; occasionally the king slime can cast Snub. While king slimes can appear as is, players will normally first encounter this monster upon running into a group of special slimes that can summon others of their type; when eight of these slimes (called Slimification) gather, they can pile up and fuse into a single king slime.

King Slimes infrequently appear in the area around Helmunaptra, via Slimification. They also appear with much more frequency in Dominicus's Dominion, sometimes in groups of three. They are a recruitable monster, and learn many helpful supportive skills such as Zing, Kabuff, and Insulate, though they level up somewhat slowly. They can also drop a Yggdrasil Leaf upon defeat.

A king slime is encountered as a boss in Highendreigh Tower. It is an especially souped-up king slime, but it should cause no problem to the average party.

Description These superior slimes ooze authority, bringing their bulk to bear on opponents and mending mates with Multiheal.
(extended) They're built when bands of blobby buddies stick together to find strength in numbers.

King slimes appear just outside of Bloomingdale; they appears to be 8 normal slimes when encountered, but form the King slime if none of them are defeated. King Slimes also appear in Slime Hill, but they aren't formed by eight slimes.
