Sand Slimes are a type of slime that appears in the Underground Desert Desktop and Mobile versions / Desert Console Version. 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 Console version Console version, they spawn on surface-level Sand Blocks during the day. This means they are abundant in Deserts.

Just like many other slimes, Sand Slimes become passive around the player when they have the Royal Gel accessory equipped.


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


  • 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."
