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.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3[edit]

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.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]
