Metal slime knight

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Metal slime knight is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, it is a stronger variant of a Slime knight.

Characteristics[edit]

Contrary to most players' expectations, the metal slime knight does not yield the incredible experience points befitting their namesake, as either the metal slimes that let themselves get captured by the slime knights are the least experienced slimes, or the slime knights shield their steeds from the finishing blow. Indeed, they do not even bear vulnerability to anti-metal weapons and skills, nor do they possess astonishing speed, a high chance of dodging attacks and immunity to magic. Instead, rumors abound that the steed is merely painted chrome...

In the PlayStation 2 remake of V, it was further distinguished from a slime knight by wielding different weaponry. It is also depicted with a different color scheme.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker[edit]

Metal slime knights can be found on Infern Isle. It is wise to scout them when first possible, as in-game events will later alter the island and prevent metal slime knights from appearing.
