See Slime Staff for the minion. For the mount, see Slimy Saddle. For the other slime pets, see Regal Delicacy and Royal Delight.

The Petri Dish summons a Pet Slime when used, which deals no damage. It grants the Pet Slime buff that lasts until the player manually cancels it by pressing/X or X/Square on the buff's icon in the armor section of the inventory screen, uses the Petri Dish again, or the player dies.

It can be obtained from Gold Chests and as a drop from Shadow Slimes.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Slime Pet will fly, pass through walls, and teleport to keep up with the player if the player travels too far away.
  • It will slide along the ground instead of "bouncing" like normal Slimes.
  • The Pet Slime is seemingly illuminous in appearance, yet does not emit any light.
  • It deals no damage, unlike the slime minion and many exclusive pets.
  • Console VersionMobile version Any Petri Dish existing was replaced with a Gold Bunny.[1]
