The Slime monster family (Japanese: スライム) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest Mystery Dungeon titles, and is considered as one of the mascots from the Dragon Quest series.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Physical appearance[edit | edit source]

Slimes are known for their rain droplet shape, round eyes, and goofy, toothless smile. First introduced in the original Dragon Quest, Slimes have since become the series' mascot due to their popularity, including the Torneko's Great Adventure games. Numerous types of Slimes exist in the franchise, with unique stats and abilities for each species.

Characteristic[edit | edit source]

Slimes will attack the player if they are close enough to hop towards it. This characteristic would be used in other games as the basis for the weakest monster, including the Mamels whose stats and appearances are almost equal in the comparison. While Slimes behave like any monsters in the series, on rare occasions they will appear as friendly, non-playable characters.
