In terms of appearance, liquid metal slimes are essentially identical to bubble slimes, but are a slick silver in color and shine.
Liquid metal slimes have the standard qualities of metal monsters: high agility, high defense, immunity to essentially all forms of magic and skills, very low HP, very high experience payout, and the unfavorable habit of running away from battle frequently. Although a step up from the metal slime, the liquid metal slime is rarely shown to be competent at fighting, its only enhancements being its HP and the experience it gives when compared to metal slimes.
A popular strategy for vanquishing the L.M.S. is to have your mage and priest cast Puff! and Accelerate on the first turn of the encounter, incinerating them automatically on the next turn. For warriors, the Spiked armour is handy to punish them for attacking directly and having a Falcon blade will give them twice as many chances to attack. A martial artist of a reasonably high level will have a great critical hit rate to rely upon as well.
Liquid Metal Slimes are commonly found in the Royal Crypt southwest of Endor by sea. They can occasionally drop Happy hats or Torneko can steal one at random. It is best to use the Sands of time item as they can run away and it may take many tries before Torneko successfully steals a happy hat at random.
Liquid metal slimes can be encountered shortly after the player obtains a ship. Though they remain an excellent source of experience points, they also have a habit of appearing alongside troublesome monsters such as hoodlums and hocus chimaeras. Exceptionally lucky and/or vigilant players may obtain a defeated liquid metal slime as an ally, one of the most potent monster partners that can be had in the game.

|Dropped Item||LUCK Shoes|
Demon Lord's Lair
|Game||Dragon Quest VII|
|Description||Tendency to run away|
The liquid metal slime can be found in the Halfling's Cave in the past, the Great Lighthouse in the past and present, the Excavated Cave, the Demon Lord's Lair, the Mentare region in Disc 2, the Krage region in Disc 2 and the Loomin region in Disc 2. It is also one of the forms that the WonderEgg can become when hatched.
Liquid metal slimes can first be encountered in Trodain Castle, though their appearances there are very rare and only indicated by the hunter mechs in the area. They also appear in most places accessible by flight, most commonly at nighttime. In particular, the island behind Maella Abby is frequent haunt and an excellent place for power leveling.

Depressing shoes (1/128)
Angel Falls area (high ground)
|Game||Dragon Quest IX|
|Description||Their defense and speed are pretty impressive, but nowhere near as amazing as the amount of experience they give!
They're constantly striving to see who can last the longest without getting whacked and still succeed in scarpering.
They can be found in The Bowhole, rarely at the cliff at Angel's falls, and in some Grottoes.

|Locations||tartarus, metal menagerie|
Liquid metal slimes appear as rank C members of the slime family and can be fought on Palaish Isle within Madame Rummy's Metal Menagerie. They can also be fought inside Tartarus, the final dungeon, before and after beating the game, though the player won't be able to see them on the overworld until after the game has been completed. Synthesizing two metal slimes together will result in a liquid metal slime.
The liquid metal slime is a Rank C monster. It can be found in the Pedal to the Metal disk area. One is given as a reward by the King of the Nochorin in exchange for thirty mini medals.
