The Gem slime (formerly Gold Slime and MinerSlime) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.


A gem slime is, as suggested by its name, shaped like a gem, a trait most apparent when viewed from the side since its back tapers to a point away from its front. It also has a tiara-like crown that bends back and appears to be attached to the point of its gem-shaped body. As indicated by its original name, it is gold in color.
