King slime

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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

Characteristics[edit]

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.

A king slime is encountered as a boss in Highendreigh Tower. It is basically a souped-up king slime. It should cause no problem to the average party.
