Slime is a species, as well as a character, from the Dragon Quest series of games which is published by Square Enix. Slime made a crossover appearance with Mario and company in Itadaki Street DS. The Slime is the mascot for the Dragon Quest series, as well as a fairly common, weak enemy in the games, much like the Goombas.

History[edit]

Mario series[edit]

Itadaki Street DS[edit]

In Itadaki Street DS, Slime appears as a playable character. This game marks the first appearance of Slime alongside the Mario series characters. The Slime Mask, Slime Suit, and Slime Maracas are collectible items that can be equipped on customizable characters. The Heal Slime, a subspecies to the Slimes also appearing in the Dragon Quest series, also appears in the game.

Mario Sports Mix[edit]

Slime reappears in Mario Sports Mix for the Wii as an unlockable playable character. It is classified as a Tricky type character, and is the only character not originating from the Mario or Final Fantasy series (not counting Miis). Oddly, Slime's best stat is its power, while it suffers from weak speed, and abysmal technique.

In Slime's special shot, it summons three other slimes, each one with a different color: pink, yellow, and green. The Slime is unlocked by winning 28 games. If players pick Slime 20 times in a sport, they unlock an alternate, orange version of Slime called She-Slime. The alternate color can also be unlocked by clearing a certain mission on the Star Cup or 20 picks as Slime. The same can be told of a second alternate color, Metal Slime, except players must either pick it 40 times or defeat it at the Star Cup.

On a side note, Slime is the only character who has its name changed when its alternate colors are chosen. Also Slime is the only character to have two alternate colors.

Fortune Street[edit]

In Fortune Street, Slime along with other Dragon Quest characters return as playable characters. Like in the prequel Itadaki Street DS, Slime is a default playable character. Slime's difficulty rating is D, meaning that it is easier to beat than most other characters in the game.
