Snails, slugs, and the rest of their ilk are slimy, slippery, and down-right disgusting. Everyone knows this. However, this drippy, runny trait is often exaggerated to a fault in many fictional works; this means that wherever slime, goop, mush and ick can linger on the creature, it probably will, and it will be outrageously over-done. Whether it be good or evil, the gastropod is often a cause of revulsion. May attack by sliming others or spitting acid and such.
