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 found in data files). 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) except for Big Slimes. Slimes spawned by killing a Big Slime do count towards the goal.

Slimes can be raised in Slime Hutches, or raised outdoors through the use of a Slime Incubator.

Each color of slime has a unique stat set.

Attacks

Slime attack zone

All colors of slimes, both male and female, have an attack zone of 4 tiles in all directions. If the player enters this zone, the slime will attack.

Slimes attack in two ways. Either they bounce slowly at the player, or they "charge" to jump at the player 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.

Being hit by a slime reduces health and causes the Slimed debuff.

Strategy

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.

The Slime Charmer Ring prevents all damage from Slimes. This ring is obtained as a reward for killing 1000 slimes for the Adventurer's Guild.

Male Slimes

Any slimes have a 49% chance to be male and will retain its original properties such as being special. Male slimes have a pom-pom like antenna dangling above their "heads", 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.

There's a very small chance for a male and female slime to mate in the Mines and create a small slime, which is same as the ones created by big slimes.

In a Slime Hutch, male and female slimes may mate to produce a small slime that will grow into either a male or female adult slime.

  • Male Yellow Slime
  • Male Frost Jelly
  • Male Purple Slime
  • Male Red Sludge
  • Male Black Slime

Variations

Note that Green, Blue, Red, and Purple slimes may drop Slime Eggs once a Slime Hutch has been built on The Farm. Once a Slime Hutch is built, any green, blue, red, or purple slime encountered anywhere may drop a Slime Egg.

Special Slimes

Special Slimes have a very small chance to replace any normal Slime. They can be identified by their antenna with a small yellow star.

Special Slimes have 3 times more health than normal Slimes, and will deal twice as much damage per attack. They can drop rare items.

Big Slimes

Big Slimes have the same attack behavior as the smaller slimes. When killed they'll often split into 2-5 smaller slimes which will attack the player.

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

Color Based Drops

In addition to the drops list above, the color of each variation is random and may have additional drops depending on the color range chosen.

Color groups are mutually exclusive, and listed in the order the game tests for them. (For example, a slime may fall into the White and Gray categories, but White is tested for first, so the slime would drop Iron Ore and not Stone).

The background color of the "RGB Values" column in the table below shows the color range that a slime can be to receive the drop.
