A slime is a common enemy in the Dragon Quest games. The basic slime is typically very weak, but there are many different varieties, including the she-slime, bubble slime, king slime, slime stack, metal slime, metal medley, liquid metal slime, metal king slime, angel slime, cure slime etc.

The metal varieties of slimes always yield a large amount of experience points, and so far have only been found in Dragon Quest IX and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker. The strongest known slime is the platinum king jewel, even though it does not have 'slime' in its name.
