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, dies, or uses the Petri Dish again.

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 Version Any Petri Dish existing was replaced with a Gold Bunny.[1]
