Dragon Quest Heroes introduces Slime, Metal Slime, Gigantes, and Healslime

Meet the monsters of the upcoming action RPG.

Dragon Quest Heroes

Following last week’s characters infographic, Square Enix has released a new infographic this week detailing some of the monsters of Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below.

You’ll battle a variety of monsters in the upcoming action RPG. The infographic introduces just four different types of these creatures.

The infographic is attached to the right, but we’ve also produced a text version below.

Slime (first appearance: Dragon Quest)

The iconic Dragon Quest Slime draws near!

This iconic monster appeared in the very first Dragon Quest and has become a staple of the series, as it is the first monster players encounter in many of the games.

It gets its charm from its jiggly-jelly body and lovely round eyes.

Metal Slime (first appearance: Dragon Quest)

This cowardly Slime is rare and quick to flee, but the experience points are astounding if you defeat it!

A monster from the Slime family with a metallic body believed to be caused by mutation. It’s known to provide astonishing experience points, making it highly sought after by adventurers. However, it’s extremely difficult to find and defeat thanks to its penchant for running away and its metal body.

Gigantes (first appearance: Dragon Quest II)

A malicious and powerful one-eyed giant with a burning hatred for humanity!

A one-eyed giant said to be the anger of a terrible dark being given a monstrous form. It wields a giant club and confronts heroes without holding back any of its terrifying strength.

Healslime (first appearance: Dragon Quest II)

A kind monster that restores its comrades with heal spells!

A Slime monster with newfound mobility thanks to its dangling tentacles. Gliding through the air on its own magical power, this kind monster prefers to heal its allies rather than heal others.

Not only does it appear as a monster in Dragon Quest Heroes, Healix the Healslime is a special friend that bonds with the party of heroes as he travels with them.

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below is due out for PlayStation 4 in North America on October 13 and Europe on October 16.
