Introduced in Dragon Quest

The slime is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the original Dragon Quest, slimes have since become the series' mascot due to their popularity and iconic qualities. The basic slime has been in every Dragon Quest game to date.

Characteristics

The slime is known for its onion/rain droplet shape, round eyes, and goofy, toothless smile; the former two traits having become the ones shared amongst nearly all their slippery siblings.

Slimes are typically the weakest enemies in every game, having no special abilities and being easily disposed of, and likely the first monster the player ever encounters in a battle. However, starting with Dragon Quest IV, there will occasionally be stronger slimes that can call on others of their kind; they may form a king slime when eight gather and starting in Dragon Quest IX three slimes may join to form the slime stack.

In some games, slimes have been domesticated into pets and others have gained the ability to speak the human language. In recent translations, all slimes have a certain verbal tic of replacing certain words and syllables with similar, 'slimier' ones, such as saying goo instead of goodgooman instead of human, and slime instead of time, to give just a few (or goo) examples.

There are three type of slimes, but all share the same bestiary entry and item drops. The ones near Alltrades Abbey will call in reinforcements and attempt to form a Slime stack; likewise those near Bloomingdale will attempt to form a King slime. Occasionally, the slimes that form the slime stack might call on too many slimes, to a maximum of five, and won't be able to form the stack until they are down to three.

In a break from tradition, the slime is not the first monster given to the player, who is instead offered a choice of either a platypunkmischievous mole, or dracky. The slime does appear on the first island inhabited by wild monsters that the player visits, Infant Isle, along with several uncharted islands, and is likely the first wild monster encountered in the game.

Slimes are the first monsters encountered in the game aside from the ones that the player has to choose from at the start of the game. The slime is a measly Rank F monster. Slimes, when synthesised over level twenty, create a Slime X. Two level fifty Slime X's make a Slime XY.

Trivia

  • Unlike his contemporaries, longtime Nintendo Power staff writer (and current Nintendo of America localization manager) Alan Averill never had a photo of him printed in the magazine; instead, he was represented by a plush Slime doll.
  • The internet MMORPG Kingdom of Loathing has a monster called Irritating Series of Random Encounters which is a group of 8 slimes. It is a reference to the random encounters of most RPG games.
  • In an interview, series creator Yūji Horii revealed that his inspiration for this enemy was some "slime-looking enemy" (possibly the creeping crud[1]) from the Wizardry series.[2]
  • An enemy character called the "Slime" is also featured in the Namco arcade game The Tower of Druaga, which predates the original Dragon Quest by two years. Also, in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, an enemy called Slime appears. Instead of boasting the famous blue color, it instead appears as a greenish-orange version of the popular slime and more resembles an onion.
  • The Slime is the first monster family in the games that you fight. Mottle Slimes are one of the first enemies encountered in DQ VI, however.
  • A Slime appears as a playable character in Mario Sports Mix. It has 3 different costumes, Normal, She-Slime, and Metal Slime.
  • In the Dragon Quest VI remake, there is a minigame called Slip n' Slime. The game involves curling with a slime, bowling, navigating obstacle courses, and ski jump tournaments.
  • In Dragon quest 7(3ds remake) freindly slimes can be seen hopping around at King Maximo's Castle.
