Slime

From Minecraft Wiki
For the Nether variant, see Magma Cube.

A slime is a rare hostile mob, which can spawn in three different sizes: big, small, or tiny. A slime will split into two smaller slimes when killed unless the slime is already the smallest size.



Behavior

Slimes can only be found in swamps, below layer 40 (in 110 of all chunks), or superflat worlds. All sizes of slimes are hostile. Even tiny slimes technically are too small, though they have zero attack damage and are sometimes kept as pets, because they will follow a player around, and do not require taming. However, a slime can despawn if it is not given a name tag. Slimes of sizes small and tiny can climb ladders.

Trivia

  • Before update 1.4.2, slimes could spawn in any biome.
  • As of update 1.5, a slime's spawn rate is determined by the phase of the Moon.
  • Before update 1.8, smaller slimes could not swim.
  • Smaller slimes can climb ladders despite them not having any limbs.
  • A slime's health in HP is the size of their square; their edge length in meters, half of their size; and their attack strength is the size.
    • The smallest slime, however, always has 1 HP and doesn't harm the player.
    • The formula to determine a slime HP could be: [([command size]+1)^2], command size being the number input of the size when using "/summon"
  • Slimes used to have an old texture. They had black eyes and mouth, instead of transparent green.
  • Slime jump distance is determined by its size, while any size of magma cubes can only jump one block forward.
    • However, the jump height is inverted between them, as Slimes will always jump one block high while Magma Cubes' jump height is determined by their size.
  • Slimes are the only mobs that attack every half-second, as opposed to every second.
  • Slimes previously had sound effects that did not sound as "squishy".
  • In the Beta stage of Minecraft, slimes could spawn in peaceful difficulty, but they would still attack players.
  • If slimes are hit by an arrow fired by a skeleton, they will ignore the skeleton. This does not happen with any other mob.
  • Slime can potentially range from size 1 to 256, spawnable by using "/summon slime ~ ~ ~ {Size:X}" (X being a chosen number from 0 to 255).
    • Its HP however stops scaling at size 31 (1.12.2), having a total of 1024 HP ( × 512) at any size bigger than 30.
  • Baby pandas can sometimes sneeze, and this drops a slimeball, which is from slimes.
