DQVIII - Healslime
Japanese name ホイミスライム
Rōmaji Hoimisuraimu
Family Slime
Introduced in II

The Healslime (formerly known as Healer), is a recurring enemy in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest II, it is a floating, tentacled slime (looking much like a jellyfish) that can heal its allies.


Healslimes are similar to jellyfish, having blue, oblong heads with yellow tentacles dangling underneath. Their eyes are often the same yellow color as their tentacles, though there are instances where their eyes are white.

While stronger than normal Slimes, Healslimes are still mediocre combatants and make themselves most threatening when they heal other, more powerful monsters before the player has a chance to subdue them. Because of this, defeating the Healslimes in an enemy group first is often the best course of action if the player cannot defeat the other enemies before they can be healed. Many enemies, such as the Restless armour, have the ability to summon a Healslime in battle and it is the most often summoned monster in all of the Dragon Quest Series.


Healslimes can be very annoying to fight against as they have the ability to heal themselves and other monsters. Damage wise, they are weak.

Tips to Combat:

- Fixate on Healslimes unless you are able to kill other monsters in ONE turn.

- Treat with High Priority.

A Healslime (then Healer) is the first boss monster that the player encounters, this particular Healslime being Hale, one of the King of GreatTree's favorite monsters. Hale will want to join upon his defeat, an offer the player should take up due to the healing and support spells the Healslime can offer.

Healix, the somewhat timid healslime, is a major character in the game. He looks like every other healslime, with the notable expection of having a bejeweled crown perched on his head. Also, Healix has not been corrupted by evil, like all the other monsters in the game, thanks to the aforementioned crown, given to him by his father.
