    Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken: MC is the most powerful slime in the universe.
    To be a power in the shadows: slime suits and slime weapons outperform mithril
    Campsite Cooking in another world: Sui is the best!

    And so on...it sure seems like the latest crop of Isekai novels slimes have become more and more important...dafuq? :eek:

    We’re talking about slimes...not just Rimaru, but so many stories slimes have become more and more important?!:eek:

    Your thoughts?

    in "The Man Picked up by the Gods" slime is extremely convenience as they would evolve depend on what they eat or prefer
    imagine if they being feed with lube and aphrodisiac, how wonderful it could become
    ofc it would that black slime from "Inside the Cave of Obscenity"

    Isn't that the fruit of 'research' with slime? Slimes have been used in a lot of 'research' and 'study' since the past, and many has approved of its usefulness.. :blobowoevil_horns:
    We need more research on this kind of topic!! :blobhero:

    Was gonna mention this one too, slimes in this novel are super useful, from making paper and substituting resources to cleaning or becoming hard as weapons, there are many strategies the mc used like poison slimes, heal slimes, and a ton of other very useful slimes, even though they are considered trash in that world he found their evolution patterns and made them good.

    It's overused plot
    Slime the weakest become strongest existence, you see them a lot from zero to hero plot
    Author running out idea because too many beta dense mc, so they use weakest something as mc or sidekick and this time slime become the star
    This is the age of slime

    Do not forget they can also be used as toilets as they can pretty much digest anything... I think this was briefly mentioned in FFF-class trash hero altough I don't think I want to sit on one and expect to be cleaned.

    They are needed as a source of income and strength as well as to move the plot forward. Without slime young masters what would xanxia and fantasy heros do to show off how heroic they are?

    Even before isekai, they have been known really useful since old rpg and eroges era. They provide you exp to hunt when you at lowest level, and provide you good cultured scene since somehow they are fluidynamic and only disgest cloth :blobhyperthink:

    And most cutest imaginable creature on earth are orange slime, scp-999 :aww:

    Slimes are versatile due to being amorphous and magical with little pre-existing mythos about them: the author can choose to make them weak or strong, cute or scary, and the size and intelligence are up to the author as well. Due to their magical properties you can give them any traits desired: can use magic, can eat anything, can mimic objects (iirc DnD mimics are a type of slime too) and beings, can learn to speak, body works as a dimensional storage...

    Compare that to goblins: weak by nature (aside for the leader), typically the size and the intelligence of a child, flock together, evil, specialize in vocations like humans do (typically fighters/rangers/shamans). This is why authors typically make goblins become stronger through evolution, instead of becoming stronger as a normal goblin. It's just harder to use goblin in the same manner as the multipurpose tool that a slime can be.

    It’s just that I grew up with movies like The Blob, so there’s a disconnect here.

    :D
