We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Sand Slimes are a type of slimes that can only appear on surface-level Sand Blocks during the day. This means they will most abundant in Deserts. They can be recognized by their sandy color and texture. Sand Slimes can drop a Slime Staff at slightly higher odds than nearly all other slimes, excluding Pinky.
Just like many other slimes, Sand Slimes become passive around the player when they have the Royal Gel accessory equipped.
- The Sand Slime has surprisingly high stats for a pre-Hardmode early slime, having the same damage and HP stat as the Jungle Slime.
