Then, during the Third Reconciliation of the Last of the Meketrex Supplicants, they chose a new form for him, that of a giant Sloar! Many Shubs and Zulls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of a Sloar that day, I can tell you!
~ Vinz Clortho (via possessed Louis Tully) about one of the previous forms of Gozer the Destructor that is about the size of the Sloars.

Sloars (alternately spelled "Slors") are rather large beasts from another dimension and villains in the Ghostbusters series. Gozer was noted for taking the form of one by Vinz Clortho in the first Ghostbusters movie. In Ghostbusters: The Video Game the first and (so far) only appearance of one of these creatures happens.


  • There seems to be a conflict of spellings for Sloar, as Ghostbusters film subtitles and the novelization of Ghostbusters spells it Sloar, while the Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Realistic Versions) spells it Slor. It is most likely a simple oversight on the part of Atari.
  • After defeating the Sloar, Ray asks if it had multiple eyes. While this would technically be true in the realistic version because of the eyes the creature creates during the first phase of the boss fight; it would also be correct if the player fought the Black Slime Behemoth in the stylized version, as the Black Slime Behemoth has eyes all over his body.
  • In the New York City Public Library, during the second encounter with Crusto and Cruster, a display shows a panel about Wolf Van Shandor (possible relative of Ivo Shandor himself). Van Shandor's art samples are actually recycled rejected designs of the Sloar.
  • When the Imprisoned Juvenile Sloar first appears, Peter likens its smell to the Fulton Fish Market, an actual establishment in the Bronx.
  • On page 10 of Ghostbusters Issue #4, Idulnas suggests a Sloar as a new Destructor Form for Gozer.
