Slime AI is an AI followed by every Slime in the game (with the exception of King Slime and Gastropods), as well as the Hoppin' Jack and Grasshoppers.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Slimes exhibit the following behavior:

Exceptions[edit | edit source]

Slimes will not chase the player above ground at daytime, not even after hitting the player. However, if nighttime sets in or the player lands in a hit with any weapon, the chasing behavior sets in. In all versions except Mobile version Mobile,Verify Grasshoppers will never chase the player, even after being attacked.

Slimes will also behave as if they are above ground and it is daytime when the player has Royal Gel equipped. They will even stay passive after being hit while Royal Gel is equipped.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Slimes jiggle up and down slightly, which becomes faster when they are about to jump. It is a good idea to attack just after they land, as you'll have a few seconds to retreat before they jump again. Since Slimes have a limited jump height, get to a place where they can't reach you. The height depends on the type of slime it is.
