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

Like most other slimes, the Baby Slime will be passive towards any player with the Royal Gel accessory equipped.

On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, 3DSNintendo 3DS version, Nintendo Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader, 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".
