Slime knight

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Slime Knight (formerly known as SlimeNite & Slime Nite) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest V, it is a dwarfed knight riding a green slime. Goowain is a notable example of a slime knight.

Characteristics[edit]

Slime knights sit astride green slimes, a variety yet to be faced alone. The small knights are armed with swords and shields, their shields bearing a likeness of a slime. When performing a Critical Hit, the knight will pummel foes with their slippery steeds.

The monster duo can be far more formidable than one might initially believe, slime knights being capable of performing strong attacks and even have a limited knowledge of healing magic. They can also be very enduring, boasting decent defenses and surprisingly pervasive elemental resilience. According to the Monster Library entry in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, it is actually the slime that is giving the orders for the duo.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

The slime knight is actually a toy available to the player in Mt. Krakatroda, Callmigh Bluff, and the Flying Clawtress and in tank battles if it is used as ammo. The knight, when being carried around, can swing its sword to attack, providing a faster and more consistent method of combat than using Elasto Blasts or simply tossing whatever is being carried around. Its potency is toned down in tank battles where it will eventually fall asleep after a sword swing and can only be struck a few times before fading away, making it important to catch one without having to knock it into the air. The slime knight can also be carried around by other characters and placed on top of objects in tank battles where it will viciously slash at anything that gets close to it, including the player.

Metal Slime Knight[edit]

Contrary to most players' expectations, the Metal Slime Knight (メタルライダー) does not yield the incredible experience points befitting their namesake, as the metal slimes that let themselves get captured by the slime knights are the least experienced slimes. Indeed, they do not even bear vulnerability to anti-M.S. weapons and skills, nor do they possess astonishing speed or have a high chance of dodging attacks and immune to magic. Instead, rumors abound that the steed is merely painted chrome...
