Purple Slimes are a variety of slimes found in Forests during the day. They are larger and stronger than the Blue Slime. They cannot spawn within 400 tiles of the world's natural spawn point, unless in Expert mode. Purple Slimes will not usually target the player, but will become aggressive when damaged, during the night, or if brought underground.
Just like many other slimes, Purple Slimes will be passive towards any player with the Royal Gel accessory equipped.
On the Desktop version, , or version Mobile version, they can rarely be found carrying bonus drops, which the player receives on the slime's death.
- During the Slime Rain, Purple Slimes can fall from the sky anywhere, regardless of the biome or time of day.
