The metal king slime is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics[]

The Metal King Slime is, as its name suggests, a king slime with the properties of the metal slime. In some games, eight metal slimes can band together to form a metal king. No matter how it is encountered, the metal king bears the same pudgy appearance as its normal brethren, as well as the crown on its head. Even so, it will sometimes attempt to distract its target with Frizz and Bang magic before running off. Metal kings share their metal brothers' enormously high evasion and resistance to magic despite having greater than 10 HP. If the player can Metal Slash his/her way through even one of these, the reward is around 30,100 EXP or more per party member depending on the game played.

Strategy[]

The Metal King Slime, like all the other metal slimes is prone to running away, often after the very first turn has been input. Complicating matters, if it does stay for a few rounds, it has somewhere in the neighbourhood of 15-20 HP and extremely high evasion. There are three solutions to this: The first is to inflict critical hits. Even though inflicting a critical hit (especially on a Metal King Slime for that matter) is incredibly rare, the chances can be significantly boosted by using either the Thunder Thrust or Hatchet Man abilities, because they will always deal a critical hit if they land. The second is to use abilities that can have their damage or accuracy augmented when used against Metal King Slimes like Metal Slash or Metalicker. And the third is to use weapons that are efficient against Metal King Slimes. The Uber Falcon Blade, and weapons like the Liquid Metal Sword are sufficient. Lastly, Metal King Slimes takes a lot of patience and luck.

Hmm, I usually manage to run away in time. How did you possibly beat me?

Ahh, peasants.

What do you wish to request from the MetalKing? Yes, yes. I see. Your plight has failed to hold my interest. Begone!
