Slimes are a unique type of monster found in the popular game Minecraft. Slimes usually appear deep under ground in caves or mineshafts, but were recently updated to spawn in Swamp biomes at night. Slimes, when attacked, split into smaller Slimes. There are three sizes of a slime, big, medium, and small. Big and medium slimes can hurt the player, though small slimes, while still hostile, cannot.
Slimes, like Creepers and Spiders, do not ignite when in the sun. Slimes also appear more abundantly on a Flatlands world due to the low level Flatlands are known for. When small slimes are killed, they sometimes drop Slime Balls, used to make Sticky Pistons.
