Slimes are neutral, meaning they do not attack the player until attacked or came into contact with, although at night they become hostile. Slimes spawned underground are always hostile, though. They float in water and attack the player by jumping.
Slimes may drop the following items:
- 1-4 Gel
- Gold Key (Dungeon Slimes)
- Ninja Clothing (King Slime)

- The Mother Slimes are the only slimes that spawns more slimes.

- Toxig Sludge, Hoppin' Jack, and Pinky are the only slimes without the word "slime" in their name.
