|Metal King Slime|
The Metal king slime (formerly King Metal, MetalKing and Metal King) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.
The Metal King Slime is, as its name suggests, a king slime with the properties of the metal slime. In some games, eight metal slimes can band together to form a metal king. No matter how it is encountered, the metal king bears the same pudgy appearance as its normal brethren, as well as the crown on its head. Even so, it will sometimes attempt to distract its target with Frizz and Bang magic before running off. Metal kings share their metal brothers' enormously high evasion and resistance to magic despite having greater than 10 HP. If the player can Metal Slash his/her way through even one of these, the reward is around 35,000 EXP per party member.
Being a metal slime, the metal king slime is prone to running away, often after the very first turn has been input. Complicating matters, if it does stay for a few rounds, it has somewhere in the neighbourhood of 15-20 HP and extremely high evasion. Any critical hit that lands will more than likely kill it; failing this, Metal Slash is the best way to chip at it until it falls. Keeping it from fleeing is a matter of blind luck.

Metal king slimes appear as rank S members of the slime family and can be synthesized via quadrulinear synthesis using four liquid metal slimes. Players can also attempt to scout them in Palaish Isle's metal menagerie, Tartarus during the post-game, and certain scouts that might use them, though in all instances the monsters can prove incredibly difficult to impress.
