|Game||Dragon Quest IX|
|Description||There's not a single spell that can scratch these superslimes, who crush the competition with a powerful particle ray.|
They spend their days proudly polishing their faultless facets and likening them to twinkling stars and priceless pearls.
Darkonium slimes are impervious to all spells, and dodge attacks often. They are very vulnerable to Falcon Slash and basic attacks from the Falcon Blade and Über Falcon Blade because they hardly ever dodge these strikes. They can attack normally, hit all party members by squishing them or hitting them with a laser beam, and can cast Multiheal.
It should be noted that Darkonium slimes are not treated as gem/metal slimes when resolving physical attacks, so using Metal Slash is unnecessary, despite their resemblance to Gem Slimes and Platinum King Jewels.
|Description||Although made of darkonium, they won't get a scout into the finals of the challenge.|
|Weapons||Spears, Axes, Claws, Staves|
|Traits||Metal Body, Escape Artist|
|Breeding chart||Beshemoth slime x Beshemoth slime x King cureslime x Metal king slime|
The Darkonium Slime is a resilient two-slot Rank A monster. It is synthesized through the combination of a slimesicle and a coalslime. In this game, it has the metal body trait, necessitating the use of anti-metal monster tactics.
One of the slimes that can be rescued, Flan Spinel, appears to be a darkonium slime.
