Family Slime
Introduced in II

Liquid metal slime (formerly Metal Babble and Metabble) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.


The liquid metal slime, like most metal slimes, seems an easy target with its low HP count, but it possesses a very high evade rate, is immune to most magic, and is extremely prone to flight. Like the regular metal slime, it may attack using spells such as Sizz and Bang. Defeating one of these can yield large amounts of experience, but very little gold.

Description Their defense and speed are pretty impressive, but nowhere near as amazing as the amount of experience they give!
They're constantly striving to see who can last the longest without getting whacked and still succeed in scarpering.

In Dragon Quest VIII there is an infamous liquid metal slime. This liquid metal slime is named "Metal Babble" in the wild and "Metabble" when captured as tributes to the old names for the slime. This form of tribute is similar to that of Metally the Metal Slime
