Mouldy slimes, also known as pickled slimes, is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first introduced in Dragon Quest X. It is a yellow variant of the bubble slime with mushrooms growing on its body.


The mouldy slime is a slime that looks like a puddle of melted yellow clay with what appears to be mushrooms growing amidst the muck surrounding it. Its Japanese name, Nukadoko slime, refers to a fermented bed of rice bran that is used for pickling vegetables that was developed in the 17th century.
