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

History[edit]

Captain N: The Game Master[edit]

Some Slimes appear in in the Captain N: The Game Master episode "The Trojan Dragon" to battle the N Team only to lose and drop two gold coins each. They're designed to look more menacing than the games and attack through spitting acidic slime.

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 franchise characters. The Slime Mask, Slime Suit, and Slime Maracas are collectible items that can be equipped on customizable characters. The Healslime, 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). 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. Also, if players pick Slime 40 times in a sport or clear a certain mission on the Star Cup, they unlock an alternate, silver version of Slime called Metal Slime.

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. As in the predecessor 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.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Slimes make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the background of the downloadable Dragon Quest stage Yggdrasil's Altar, though they do not affect gameplay. On rare occasions, a Liquid Metal Slime may appear. Both types also appear as DLC spirits. Slimes also appear in Hero's reveal trailer, one of his victory animations, and his down taunt.
