People

Whether it be other ranchers on the Far, Far Range; or elsewhere in the galaxy, there are plenty of humans out who'll keep in contact with you.

    Beatrix Lebeau 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beatrix_9.png

A young slime rancher who came light years away from earth to make her mark on the Far, Far Ranch. Also the Player Character.

  • The Faceless: In the alpha build, her in-game model is just her arm and the vacpac. In the full game, however, you can see her if you enter her home, or on the title screen.
  • Healing Factor: She will regenerate quickly after a few moments of not getting damaged. Justified as her suit's life support system kicking in.
  • Human Popsicle: According to an email from her ex Casey, Beatrix was "asleep for a year" for the trip to The Far Far Range.
  • Made of Iron: She can endure being stabbed, blown up, irradiated, burned, electrocuted, bitten, and drowned...and yet the worst that happens is that she's knocked out for a while.
  • Samus Is a Girl: In the alpha, the only way to know that you were playing a woman was checking your email (which wasn't necessary to play the game). In the full release, this is a non-issue.
  • Sweet and Sour Grapes: Defying this trope is one of the big differences between Beatrix and Hobson. Hobson gave up adventuring to go back to his love, Thora, while Beatrix and Casey went their separate ways to follow their own dreams despite being in love with each other still.
  • Triple Shifter: You don't take penalties for going without sleep and between exploring, hired work for people like Mochi and Ogden, and the general duties of a rancher, there is a lot that needs doing, so it's not unusual for Beatrix to go several days without sleep, particularly when the ranch is quite large. This will only be commented on the first time you do it, with an achievement.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Or at least Teal in her case.

    Hobson Twillgers 

The previous owner of the Ranch who let it fall into disrepair before disappearing. He's left behind a series of notes around the world to Beatrix.

  • Foil: To Beatrix, his successor. Hobson turned back at the teleporter at the end of the Glass Desert to be with Thora, while Beatrix left Casey and Earth in search of adventure. But it's possible some day Beatrix may go back.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: Players who spend a lot of time exploring can understand how Hobson may've let the ranch fall into disrepair.
  • The Ghost: He's left various notes around the world to guide Beatrix, but has apparently been missing for at least a year. Subverted. He's been living with Thora West the whole time. After unlocking the credits sequence he even sends Beatrix an email.
  • Old Flame: He and Thora were previously in love. However, the two parted when Hobson wanted to seek out more adventures. By the end of his newest journey, he decided to return to Thora.
  • Sweet and Sour Grapes: His final note in the end of Adventure Mode tells of how he gave up the chance at one final discovery to go back to Thora West.

    Thora West 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thoraslimerancher_1.png
An old, experienced Slime Rancher who welcomes Beatrix to the Far, Far Range.

  • Cool Old Lady: Thora is more or less your starting business partner for the Range Exchange, and will request easy-to-obtain items of all kinds.
  • Miss Exposition: She briefs you on the Range Exchange and what it's for.
  • Old Flame: She and Hobson were previously in love. However, the two parted when Hobson wanted to seek out more adventures.

    Viktor Humphries 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/viktorslimerancher_5.png
A scientist who considers himself a professional Rancher, while also trying to become a profession musician. Viktor primarily requests Slimes.

  • Black and Nerdy: His portrait shows he's black.
  • Mad Scientist: Viktor's studies and methods are... unsafe, to say the least. It's said that he once created a plort-cloning machine, but destroyed it for reasons unknown.
  • The Shut-In: Due to his studies, he rarely if ever leaves his lab which is why he uses the Range Exchange to request slimes.

    Ogden Ortiz 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ogdenslimerancher.png
A man who "fancies himself as a farmer". He's less interested in the ranching of slimes and the plorts, and more fascinated in the growing of the Range's various vegetation. Ogden will primarily request fruits and vegetables.

  • Big Fun: He's got a very large frame, going by the portrait. However, he's one the most pleasant fellows you'll keep in contact with.
  • Call to Agriculture: It's said that Ogden was once the CEO of an Insta-food conglomerate. Assuming it's true, something must have caused him to step down to become a farmer instead.
    • After the second haul of rare fruit you give him, he outright admits that the company got too big and too dangerous. He couldn't even bring it down.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Kookadoba fruits. He even has a pie recipe for it!

    Mochi Miles 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mochislimerancher.png
The daughter of billionaire Tatsuya Miles. A very haughty and competitive girl, she seeks to conquer the plort market with her "inside track" while she's on the Far, Far Range. Mochi will primarily request plorts.

  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She'll come to respect you a bit more as you reach each milestone with trading Quicksilver Plorts, and she'll start opening up to you a bit about her doubts regarding her father.
  • Disappeared Dad: One loading blurb claims she hasn't spoken to her father in years, contrasting with her initial claim that her dad gives her the "inside track" on the plort market. Once you trade enough Plorts to unlock the Deluxe Coop Upgrade, she'll ponder if her father just sent her to the Far, Far Range to keep her out of the way, instead of being sent there for a "Special Assignment" like he apparently claimed.
    Mochi Miles: Just a chicken in a coop...
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her name, "Mochi", refers to a traditional Japanese confection made from pounded glutinous rice.
  • Miles Gloriosus: She claims to have caught a Golden Slime before, which, as most players probably know, is impossible. The fact that she most frequently requests plorts, on the hope of cashing in once become more valuable, casts further doubt on her ranching skills.
  • Non-Idle Rich: She may be a rich kid, but she also wants to beat out the competition in the plort market.
  • Spoiled Brat: Being daughter of a billionaire obviously doesn't mean she can buy herself a better attitude. The first sentences in her introductory e-mail is just dripping with smarmy sarcasm.
    Mochi Miles: Well, well it seems like another wannabe rancher has signed up for a lonely existence on a faraway space rock. Congrats Beatrix!
  • Tsundere: Shows shades of this in some of your conversations after each trade.

    BOb 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bobslimerancher.png
chickeNs.
helloCHickens.
chICKEN.
chickKn

Uhh... Ahem. Sorry about that. BOb isn't actually a person. Rather, BOb appears to be a group of Pink Slimes who've figured out how to use the Range Exchange to request... chickens.

    Casey 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/casey_29.png
Beatrix's ex-lover on Earth, who still keeps in contact with her on a regular basis through mails exchanged between the two of them.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Casey's gender is intentionally never stated in-game and their appearance in the credits gives no hints, either. While the credits song is sung by a husky voiced woman Word of God is that it isn't Casey singing anyway.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Casey is a very gender neutral name by itself, and the game makes no mention of Casey's gender.
  • I Will Wait for You: Played with. If the ending song is anything to go by, Casey is still in love with Beatrix, but apart from the 1000 light-years between them, they really were very different people.
  • Opposites Attract: Deconstructed. Casey's e-mails show that Beatrix was the outdoorsy type to the extreme, while Casey was the complete opposite. While there are thankfully no hard feelings between them, the difference between Beatrix and Casey's lifestyles ultimately led to them parting.
  • Silly Love Songs: the credit song is one of these from Casey to Beatrix.
  • Singer-Songwriter: Is a singer by profession. The credit song is from their point of view in the classic style of the trope.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Downplayed. They still keep in touch via mail exchange, but it's pretty clear that Casey can't be together with Beatrix anymore simply because of the sheer distance between the two. Played with in that they're literally star-crossed, with Beatrix being on the opposite side of the galaxy from Earth.

Slimes

    Pink Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pink_slime_sp.png
Their coral hue is scientifically proven to be the color of cheer
The most basic type of slime, they can eat next to anything.
  • Com Mons: The most common slime along the Far, Far Range.
  • Extreme Omnivore: The trade off for not having any "Favorite" food is that unlike all other types they aren't limited to any particular foods. Chickens, fruits, and veggies are all fair game.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Despite their dim behavior, some of them have figured out how to set up a Slimenet profile by the name of BOb. On the other hand, they only use it to order chickens.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: The only slimes for which this trope is averted. Pink slimes can and will eat anything, but they favor none of it.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Because they eat anything, a pink slime is seldom without a few plorts nearby, which may end up causing unintended largos, or even worse, Tarr.

    Phosphor Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/phosphor_slime_sp_3.png
The softly glowing heralds of starlight
A winged nocturnal slime, they only come out at night and disappear in the day without proper protection. Eats fruit. Can be found in all areas at night.
Advertisement:

    Tabby Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tabby_slime_sp_0.png
Those stripes, that tail, that wiggle, wiggle, wiggle
A basic type of slime that can be found in all areas, they like to steal items like plorts or food they don't eat, possibly resulting in Tarrs. They eat meat.

    Rock Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rock_slime_8.png
These slimes ore totally metal
A slime that can be found in the Dry Reef, Indigo Quarry, and the Glass Desert. They inflict damage when touched and eat veggies.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Touching them hurts you. This also applies to Rock-X Largos, and their close cousins the Crystal slimes.
  • The Spiny: Not that any slimes are truly enemies, but their plorts are a bit trickier to gather without taking damage.
  • Rolling Attack: One of their favorite methods of movement is a sharp rolling charge, which often ends up putting you in danger.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Heart Beets

    Boom Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boom_slime_sp_1.png
Careful, these slimes have been known to expl-
A slime that is known to explode. They can be found in the Moss Blanket, Indigo Quarry, and Glass Desert. They eat meat.

    Honey Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/honey_slime_sp_1.png
Nothing is sweeter than (a freshly produced plort of) honey
A slime found only in the Moss Blanket, their plorts are highly desired by other slimes. They eat fruit.
  • Alien Catnip: Their plorts tend to cause this reaction in slimes, making them slightly dangerous to other slimes in the wild. They find it irresistible and will chase after it, unlike the other types of plorts, and as a result will often become Tarrs.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Mint Mangos
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: As mentioned above, their attractive plorts can cause Tarr outbreaks.

    Puddle Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/puddle_slime_sp_0.png
Keep one in your boot and you'll always stay cool. But it's weird
A slime found in quiet ponds in all areas, though you'll need to unlock a Slime Gate to find them. They live in and absorb fresh water, although they will disappear if left outside of water for too long.
  • Making a Splash
  • Nerf: Used to be the of the most effective methods of income despite their rareness. However, version 0.3.0 made it so that you can't have more then four of them in one pond. If you do they'll stop producing plorts.
    • If given a rubber ducky, they'll tolerate a fifth slime.
  • Palette Swap: Formerly was another Palette Swap of the Pink Slimes, but got a new model in version 0.3.0.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: All of the slimes are pretty cute, but Puddle slimes are a quiet and shy kind of cute. Their slime toy is also a cute rubber duck that they run over to and hug.
  • Shrinking Violet: Not that they're really rare, but they are the most docile and passive slimes out there, which makes them pretty low maintenance for the high price of their plorts. They also don't bounce and laugh like the other slimes, which makes them seem shy in comparison.
    • In addition, putting too many Puddle Slimes in one pond will cause them to stop producing plorts - and blush.
  • Never Trust a Trailer: At about 0:08 of the version 1.1.0 trailer, you can briefly see a Puddle Slime near the edge of a waterfall in the water. Puddle Slimes do not spawn in the Wilds.

    Rad Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rad_slime_2.png
Its radiance is so lovely it makes you sick
A slime found exclusively in the Indigo Quarry. Rads have a radioactive aura which causes damage is stood into for too long. They eat veggies.

    Hunter Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hunterslime_sp.png
Nevermind the rabbit, have you seen any chickens?
A rare type of slime that can be found in the Moss Blanket. They eat meat and can turn invisible, save for their eyes and mouth. All largos formed from them or their plorts start out feral, requiring food to be tamed.
  • All Animals Are Domesticated: Surprisingly Averted in the case of their largos. Like the feral slimes you encounter in the wild, they start out hostile and require food to become normal slimes.
    • 0.5.0 made it so that if they aren't fed for a while, they become feral again. They can also be agitated into turning feral(e.g. being hit by Fire Slimes or being exposed to a Tangle Slime's pollen).
  • Difficult, but Awesome: High value plorts, but their favorite food is a less common spawn, their largos go feral when hungry, and they spawn in only two locations, both infested with ferals.
  • Invisibility
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Has more defined eyes than most beady-eyed slimes.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Roostros. They're one of the three slimes (the others being Crystal and Quantum) whose favorite food is difficult to get: Roostros spawn more rarely than hens of any type. And of the three, Hunter Slimes have, by far, the hardest favorite to obtain long-term. note 
  • Underground Monkey: They look very similar to Tabby Slimes and are described as their cousins.
  • Visible Invisibility: While they are invisible you can still see their eyes and mouth, and what turns invisible is of the "distortion of the background" variety.

    Crystal Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crystalslime_sp.png
It's clear as shiny, transparent rocks that these slimes are dangerous
A rare slime found in a unique volcanic area in the Indigo Quarry. They eat veggies and have a tendency to put down extremely hot crystal spikes and, like their Rock Slime cousins, deal damage when touched.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: Only spawn in two specific locations, both of which are dangerous due to the floor being practically carpeted in their crystal traps. Their favorite food also only sometimes spawns in veggie patches of other foods. But their plorts are fairly high value compared to the slimes found in the same area.
  • Gemstone Assault: As mentioned under The Spiny below, the fact that they hurt you when touched can count as this.
  • Kill It with Water: Not them, but their crystal patches can be easily shattered with a splash of water. The Slimepedia says their crystals are glowing hot so it makes sense that cool, fresh water would induce thermal shock to shatter them.
  • Power Crystal
  • The Spiny: Like Rock Slimes, touching them hurts you.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Odd Onions, which don't grow in patches on their own, but have a chance to spawn in veggie patches in the Indigo Quarry. What's more, depositing one in a garden won't net you a purely Odd Onion farm, but a Carrot farm with a fraction of each yield being Odd Onions. They form a trio with Hunter and Quantum slimes, who have similarly less easy-to-obtain favorites.
  • Trap Master: They frequently leave behind patches of crystal spikes that hurt you.
  • Underground Monkey: They look very similar to Rock Slimes and are described as their cousins.

    Quantum Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/quantumslime_sp.png
A slime that really shows its potential.
A slime only found in the hard-to-access Ancient Ruins, Quantum Slimes are speculated to have been created due to an accident at the Ruins long ago. They eat fruit and create "Ghosts", quantum copies of themselves that can't interact with the real world, but if they get agitated, they can make the quantum copies their new reality, effectively teleporting.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: They can be a pain to keep due to their ability to teleport, especially if a largo is made with the sunlight allergic Phosphor Slimes or Trap Master Crystal Slimes. However, their plort's base value is a huge 60.
  • Kill It with Water: Splashing them with water will destroy all their "Ghosts".
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: They occasionally start doing this. It's also the way you can figure out which ones are "Ghosts" as they have even more visual glitches then the real ones.
  • Palette Swap: Same as Rad and Boom slimes, they have the same model as Pink Slimes. However, along with being yellow and having yellow eyes, they also have a swirl texture on their bodies. Not to mention their glitching.
  • Quantum Mechanics Can Do Anything
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Aside from their Teleportation, their plorts are used to power a giant teleporter in the Ancient Ruins.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Phase Lemons. They form a trio with Hunter and Crystal Slimes in terms of having a difficult-to-obtain favorite; Phase Lemon trees occasionally teleport away(meaning you can't just camp by one and wait for the lemons to grow), and once you find a ripe Phase Lemon, you need to shoot a fruit at it to harvest it. Unlike the other two, however, once you have one Phase Lemon, getting more is relatively trivial—after update 1.1.0, Phase Lemons grown in a garden can be harvested normally like any other fruit(beforehand, you needed to shoot other fruits at domestically grown Phase Lemons just like with wild ones).

    Dervish Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dervish_slime.png
Twists and turns all day and spirals all night.
One of the many slimes unique to the Glass Desert, Dervish Slimes use the rings around their body to create small twisters to ride around on. They can also use them to create giant windstorms if angered or hungry. They eat fruits and, along with Rock Slimes, are the only slimes to spawn in the Glass Desert at first...
  • Blow You Away: They can create their own gusts of wind, and frequently ride on the small dust devils in the Glass Desert.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: The ring around them spins enough create twisters.
  • Fragile Speedster: Thanks to their aptitude with wind, they can reach speeds that'll force you to sprint after them. Otherwise, though, they're one of the least dangerous slimes in the Glass Desert.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Prickle Pears.

    Tangle Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tangle_slime_sp.png
A slime that- that- AACHOOOO
A slime exclusive to the Glass Desert, Tangle Slimes use vines to catch chickens. They use traps to grab the birds and pull them underground, emerging right in front of their mouths as a ready-to-eat meal. Too bad there don't seem to be any around when you get to the desert...
  • Green Thumb
  • Flower Motifs: Their main features are large flowers on top of their heads.
  • Foul Flower: The innocent-looking Tangle Slime is referred to as a fearsome predator with a big appetite for tasty meat by the Slimepedia. Downplayed
  • Tentacle Rope: They use vines to pull prey and plorts through the ground to them, ready for consumption.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Oh boy, these guys have a very bad problem with this. Even if they're largos, they'll still use their tangles to grab plorts and turn themselves into Tarrs. They're one of the hardest slimes to keep, because if you put them in a corral next to another corral, they'll grab plots from that corral and turn into Tarrs.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Painted Hens.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: See Too Dumb to Live above.

    Mosaic Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mosaic_slime_sp.png
Remarkable from every angle.
The crystal like Mosaic Slimes live in the Glass Desert, eating veggies and making "Glints". These "Glints" look like floating balls of light, and when they hit the ground they explode. Unfortunately, none seem to be in the desert when you make your way there...

    Fire Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fire_slime.png
Like a little campfire, except that it moves and is a slime.
Slimes seemingly made of lava that creep around the Glass Desert, these little fireballs like to feast on ash made when food is burnt.
  • Bragging Rights Reward: In-universe, farming Fire Slimes for their plorts is considered this. It's dangerous work, you're not going to get rich doing it, but you're helping millions of people in developing areas keep their furnaces and fireplaces lit that wouldn't otherwise be.
  • Palette Swap: Of Puddle Slimes.
  • Playing with Fire: Most items that touch a burning fire slime burn to oblivion. Even Chickadoos vanish on contact with them!
  • Too Dumb to Live: They initially had an annoying tendency to jump out of an incinerator and consequently extinguish. Later updates tried to remedy this; 1.1.0 made it so that they no longer leap at toys, and 1.2.1 made it so that they no longer "bounce (out of their troughs) with excitement when they saw Beatrix return to the ranch."
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ash.
  • Underground Monkey: They're basically the complete opposite of Puddle Slimes, but share the same model and basic function. Fire Slimes need to be kept in a incinerator with an ash trough upgrade, and fed by burning food in it to create ash that they can rapidly burn through if you're keeping more than one. Puddle Slimes are kept in ponds and don't need any maintenance at all (prior to Version 1.0.1 they just needed their pond refilled every so often). Fire Slimes only spawn around the Glass Desert, and only during the hazardous Solar Anomalies that set everything on fire, since they can't eat without any sort of ash; while Puddle Slimes only spawn in bodies of fresh water and can't go out for fear of evaporating, but are one of the safest slimes to obtain. Its literally fire and water.

    Saber Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saberslimesp_sml.png
Or at least, its descendant.
Saber Slimes are a primitive species of slime that only exist as Largos today. Their pure slime variants are extinct. They are only found in the Wilds, and their largos are feral.

    Quicksilver Slimes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/quicksilverslimesp.png
A swift, sterling shimmer of static slime. (repeat)
Quicksilver Slimes are found in Nimble Valley, owned by Mochi Morebucks. They are extremely fast creatures that feed on static electricity.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: The only slime (unless you count Saber Largos) to even have anything resembling eyebrows, and they stretch most of the length of its body.
  • Developers' Foresight: The placeholder Quicksilver Slimes and their plorts were coded to be unvacable, to discourage anyone from modding the game to access and use them prematurely. The slimes remain unvacable with the official release, and their plorts cannot be stored in any way besides depositing them in Mochi's Range Exchange port—if you try and be smart and shoot one outside the barrier, when you go to vacuum it back up, it will just bounce off your Vacpack, and after a few seconds it will be teleported into your Nimble Valley inventory.
  • Lightning Bruiser: They move fast, and, if they're charged, they'll hurt you as bad as a Tarr.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Downplayed. But Quicksilver slimes are harmless. That is, until you shoot them with electricity. Then they will hurt you.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: You must activate a power generator to get Quicksilver Slimes to appear in Nimble Valley, and only for a limited time. They'll then return to hiding once the generator is out of power, and you must wait 12 hours for it to recharge. The normal and hard tracks do have separate recharge timers though.
  • Shock and Awe: They eat electricity. They normally eat very slowly, but Mochi devised a way to get them to eat faster by feeding them electricity directly, at which point they become charged enough to shock you.
  • Shout-Out: Possibly of Quicksilver from the Marvel comics, a speedy superhero who has a hairstyle that the Slimes' eyebrows resemble. The idea of them feeding on electricity likely comes from the Quicksilver Lichen from Spiral Knights, a game that Nick Popovich—a co-founder of Monomi Park—was the lead developer of.
  • Underground Monkey: Their placeholder sprites before the Megabucks update were basically Fire Slimes minus the flaming aura, and their plorts were identical to Tabby plorts. Following the release, they received an official design, though they still used the "voices" of Fire Slimes. 1.2.1 gave Quicksilver Slimes their own voices, finally Averting the trope.
  • Unexpected Gameplay Change: Chasing them down in Nimble Valley functions as a cross between a racing game and a first person shooter; the player's encouraged to run around the valley to collect electricity and extra time, but the best way to feed them all at once is to wait at a few choke points and rapid fire into them.

    Gold Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gold_slime_4.png
Get rich or die sliming
An ultra rare type of slime. They can't be kept in pens and flee when confronted. Hitting them with anything will cause them to drop plorts however.
  • Metal Slime: Rare, but drops the most valuable plort in the game.
  • Picky Eater: While most other Slimes with a favorite will still willingly eat anything else in the same category, Gilded Gingers are the only thing Gold Slimes will eat—they will reject anything else, even other veggies.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Trying to capture one will cause it to fly away immediately, no matter how hard you try. Instead, you have to shoot something from your vac knock a plort out of it.
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: Subverted; their plorts aren't really used for anything, but they are extremely valued because they are shiny.

    Lucky Slime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manekineko_6.png
Another rare type of slime. They are Tabby Slimes that are filled with newbucks. Feed them chickens to get instant money. Disappear a short time after being approached.
  • Maneki Neko: Got this as a theme, being a Tabby Slime with a coin affixed to its head.
  • Metal Slime: Rare but it gives you straightforward money. Which can be helpful if you happen to accidentally fall in the Slime Sea a lot.
  • Palette Swap: Of Tabby Slimes, but with a coin added to their foreheads.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Doesn't flee when approached, instead they just flat out disappear
  • Signature Sound Effect: Makes a very distinctive jingling sound when one is near. Better hope you have some chickens on you.

    Party Slime 
A special type of slime that only appears on weekends. Appears as a Party Gordo, a Pink Gordo wearing a party hat and star shaped sunglasses. When fed they explode into smaller party slimes and leave gifts containing Ornaments. Produces Pink Plorts, effectively making them Pink Slimes.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Like regular Pink Slimes, they'll eat anything
  • Metal Slime: Only appears in specific locations when the game is being played on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, but drops special rewards that can only found on those days.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Again, they're really just pink Slimes in a funny gettup, so they lack this.
  • Underground Monkey: If it were to take off it's hat and classes, it would be identical to a Pink Gordo. Though special party music plays near it. In fact, attempting vac the smaller one yanks them off first, resulting in a pink slime. Putting accessories on them with the fashion pod will overwrite the accessories of the smaller ones, but not the Gordos.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Because they eat anything and appears in weird locations, they'll often quickly eat anything nearby once popped, which may end up causing unintended largos, or even worse, Tarr.

    The Tarr 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tarr_5.png
A type of slime formed when a largo eats a plort they don't create. They only seek to replicate by eating other slimes. However, they also want to eat you and some chickens.
  • Feed It with Fire: Strangely, this is played straight if The Tarr eats a Fire Slime.
  • Grey Goo: They reproduce immediately after eating. Also applicable in the literal sense, incidentally, aside from their rainbow patterns.
  • Kill It with Fire: It can be destroyed by throwing it into an incinerator.
  • Kill It with Water: They also die in the lakes around the Moss Blanket and Indigo Quarry, when splashed with enough fresh water, unlike other slimes.
    • Alternatively, they die just like any other slime if tossed into the Slime Sea.
  • Muck Monster: A small amount of scientific speculation, and it's easy to guess that there must be some kind of oil in their physiology to be causing the rainbow effectScience .
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ranchers.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Averted; even The Tarr will completely ignore chickadoos.
  • Villainous Rescue: If one spawns, or is spawned, in an area rife with Feral Largos, this trope can ensue as the Largos become too preoccupied with the Tarr to attack you, and the Tarr can be more easily dispatched with a water tank once it's over.
