Box slime

The Box Slime is a red, cube-shaped slime. Until recently, it had only been in the first two games of the Monsters spin-off series. Two variants, a grey one and a brown one, were later introduced in Dragon Quest Builders. They are most likely a reference to the iconic gelatinous cubes from Dungeons and Dragons.


Box Slimes are, as their name suggests, box-shaped Slimes and are of a reddish hue. This box-like form supposedly results from a Slime being stuck in a box for a long period of time. Despite this distinct shape, they are still as gelatinous and stretchy as their normal Slime counterparts. When breeding, any given Slime as the pedigree with a Material monster will typically result with the egg of a Box Slime.


Dragon Quest Monsters[edit]

"Being trapped in a box gives this slime its shape."

Box Slimes can be encountered in the Medal Man's Gate where they will either attack with Blazemore or Ramming or support fellow monsters with Upper. Typically, any Slime pedigree with a Material mate will create a Box Slime. They are useful when bred with a Material pedigree since the result will usually be a Mimic.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2[edit]

Dragon Quest Builders[edit]

In this game, two variants are introduced: the Rocky box slime and the Muddy box slime. Both are disguised as regular blocks until they are struck, at which point they spring to life and attack.
