Baby Slimes are slimes that are spawned in groups of 1-3 from a defeated Mother Slime.

Like many other slimes, Baby Slimes become passive around the player when they have the Royal Gel accessory equipped.

On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, and 3DS3DS version, they can rarely be found carrying bonus drops, which the player receives upon the slime's death.


  • Similarly to Black and Mother Slimes, the Baby Slime blends slightly with the background of the Cavern layer, making it difficult to detect. As such, it can often catch players off-guard.
  • When Baby Slimes are spawned upon the death of their mother, they can find themselves on a slightly different position from where the parent was. This can make them spawn on the other side of a one block thick ground, potentially passing through the roof of a house.
  • When killed with Tally Counter equipped, it will always say "Kill count unavailable".
