Sand Slimes are a type of slime that appears in the Underground Desert / Desert . They can be recognized by their sandy color and texture. Sand Slimes can drop a Slime Staff at slightly higher odds than nearly all other slimes, excluding Pinky.

On Switch version Switch version and tModLoader version tModLoader version, they spawn on surface-level Sand Blocks during the day. This means they are abundant in Deserts.

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

Notes[]

  • Defeating the Sand Slime is not required for earning the Gelatin World Tour achievement.

Trivia[]

  • The Sand Slime has surprisingly high stats for a pre-Hardmode early slime, having the same damage and HP stat as the Jungle Slime.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Sand Slime: "Deserts are very dry, but the Sand Slime seems to have successfully adapted to the harsh conditions by becoming a pile of living sand."
