Despite the name, the scarlet slimes' sexes 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, the globs are more of an orange shade than red. According to some 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".

|Description||Game description: These slimes are the result of a rare genetic mutation, and are also known 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.
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.
Bseu is a corruption of the hebrew letter Beth, the second in their alphabet. In the context of Dragon Quest it means "second slime", referring to the fact that she-slimes are less often encountered than blue slimes.
