The King slime is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV, it is a giant, crown-wearing slime that lords over the plebian plobs.


King slimes appear to be large, engorged slimes, notably due to their chubby cheeks imposing on the edges of their toothless grins. Going along with their kingly status, they have crowns, usually shown as being gold-rimmed with purple and green striped fabric.

In terms of strength, king slimes are a massive step up from the average slime in all parameters, especially HP and attack strength. They are often shown as being versed in magic, normally having Zing as one of the spells in their arsenal, meaning that they can be more than just a physical force. While king slimes can appear as is, players will normally first encounter this monster upon running into a group of special slimes that can summon others of their type; when eight of these slimes (called slimification) gather, they can pile up and fuse into a single king slime.

King Slimes infrequently appear in the area around Helmunaptra, via slimification. They also appear with much more frequency in Dominicus's Dominion, sometimes in groups of three. They are a recruitable monster, and learn many helpful supportive skills such as Zing, Kabuff, and Insulate, though they level up somewhat slowly. They can also drop a yggdrasil leaf upon defeat.

The king slime boss can be found in the Mountain Tower. It is basically a souped-up king slime. It should cause no problem to the average party.

Description These superior slimes ooze authority, bringing their bulk to bear on opponents and mending mates with Multiheal.
(extended) They're built when bands of blobby buddies stick together to find strength in numbers.

King slimes appear just outside of Bloomingdale; they appears to be 8 normal slimes when encountered, but form the King slime if none of them are defeated. King Slimes also appear in Slime Hill, but they aren't formed by eight slimes.
