The Slime God is a Pre-Hardmode boss that can be fought anywhere. The boss is comprised of three main parts, the Crimulan Slime God, the Ebonian Slime God, and the Core itself. All three will spawn upon the use of the Overloaded Sludge, regardless of whether the world generated contains Corruption or Crimson.

Spawn

The Slime God does not spawn on its own and requires the player to summon it with the Overloaded Sludge.

Aftermath

Notes

  • The Slime God component defeated last will be the one to drop the loot.
    • 180 to 250 Gel will always be dropped directly by the final Slime God component regardless of mode.
  • The Crimulan and Ebonian Slime Gods can teleport with players if they use any recall items far from their spawn points.

Tips

For more elaborate strategies on defeating The Slime God, including weapon and arena recommendations, see Guide:The Slime God strategies.
  • Do not run too far away, or otherwise, the Slime Gods will ram the player at very high speed, making it very difficult to dodge them. Try to keep them on the screen to avoid getting hit easily.
  • It is not recommended to fight these bosses until at least Skeletron is defeated, as their high speed and damage can easily overwhelm an unprepared player.
    • Should the player have the skill and patience to defeat this boss, they can obtain powerful loot that will aid them through the rest of pre-Hardmode.

Trivia

  • The Slime God's theme is Return to Slime, which was composed by the artists DM DOKURO and SixteenInMono.
    • This theme contains motifs from The Perforators and The Hive Mind's themes.
    • If the Calamity Music add-on mod is disabled, Boss 1 will play instead.
    • In the theme, a voice shouts some unknown words.
  • Unlike all the other bosses, the Slime God has 2 Masks, one for the Crimulan Slime God and another for the Ebonian Slime God. This is similar to the fact that The Twins and Calamitas have multiple different Trophies.
    • Only one of the two masks can drop at a time.
  • The Slime God can be fought before any boss is defeated, as its summoning item only requires Ebonstone/Crimstone Blocks collected from explosives and Blighted Gel.
  • The Slime God was one of the first bosses added to the Calamity Mod, along with the Desert Scourge and The Devourer of Gods.
    • Prior to the 1.1.6.13 update, The Slime God was a single large slime, instead of two large slimes and a core.
  • If the Boss Checklist Mod is installed, its unique despawn message will be "The gelatinous monstrosity achieved vengeance for its brethren."

BestiaryBestiary entries

  • The Slime God (Core): "This creature could easily be confused for a giant amoeba. It seems to be developing past the limitations of an usual slime, thanks to all the compacted biomass it contains."
  • Large slimes: "Flanking their creator and serving as its body, these are concentrated, swirling masses of the world’s evils, each utilizing the rot and corrosion to eat away and assimilate those who oppose it."
