- This article is about the monster. For the drop, see Slime.
Slimes are enemies that can be found in various locations, including The Mines and the Secret Woods. They come in five different variations, all based on the same sprite and code (a color hue is added to the grey sprite shown in the portrait). You need to kill 1000 Slimes of any color for Monster Eradication Goals. All Slimes in the game count towards this goal (e.g. in the Secret Woods).
Each color of slime has a unique stat set.
Slimes attack in two ways. Either they bounce slowly at you, or they "charge" to jump at you from a distance. The charging animation resembles the slime becoming almost flat to the ground. If there is an obstacle in the way, the charge jump will cause them to bounce off the object (sometimes multiple times if they're in a tight spot). Occasionally slimes will enter a state of rage after being attacked, causing them to move significantly faster and have red eyes.
|Slimed||Speed (-4)||Being hit by a Slime.||2.5-3s|
When a slime is hit, it will be knocked back a short distance, out of range of melee weapons. The best strategy to kill slimes is to quickly reach them to striking distance to prevent their charge attack, and corner them against a wall or, ideally, in a corner (of walls, rocks, or both). Both the charged and regular attacks may be avoided by using a defensive move (such as the block of the regular sword). Timing a block with a sword well can allow the player to get a decent amount of damage in. Otherwise, offense is the best defense.
Any slimes have a 49% chance to be male and will retain its original properties such as being special. Male slimes have a tail, 25% more health over the base HP, and 1 more damage. When it is passive and is attacked, male slimes have a 2.5% chance to increase its damage by 50% and do a shaking animation.

Big Slimes can be of any colour, although they are most common as Purple Slimes in the Skull Cavern.
