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[edit]

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2[edit]

A darkonium slime is a tough two-slot Rank S monster. One can be synthesized by combining four monsters: a beshemoth slime, a beshemoth slime, a king cureslime, and a metal king slime.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

One of the slimes that can be rescued, Flan Spinel, appears to be a darkonium slime.
