All kinds of slimes in Slime Rancher 2

All varieties of slimes in the game, preferred food, favorite dishes, produced by plorts

The main characters of Slime Rancher 2 are slimes that gamers are familiar with from the original game in the series. Even though the sequel (which is in early access at the time of writing) doesn’t have all the creatures from the first part, Slime Rancher 2 has some brand new slimes that you can catch and take care of.

Surely in future updates the number of slimes will only increase, but at the time when I wrote this guide, there were a total of 18 different creatures (not counting Gordo and various combos of largos).

pink slime

  • What can eat: Omnivore
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley

Pink slimes, named after their color, are the easiest to find and are actually considered the mascot of the series. Pink slimes eat just about anything, so feeding them is the easiest. After feeding such a slime, it will produce pink plorts.

Make sure you don’t have too many pink slimes and keep an eye on them otherwise they might eat your crops and livestock. No, they don’t want to cause harm; the slimes are just hungry.

Cotton Slime

  • What can eat: Vegetables
  • Favorite thing: Water lettuce
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley

These bunny-like slimes are known for being able to jump higher than others, which means that they can jump out of enclosures if they are not properly equipped (no high walls and air mesh).

Cotton slimes eat vegetables. Many may think they love carrots, but in fact, cotton slimes love a less common vegetable, water lettuce. Cotton slimes produce cotton plort when fed, a useful crafting material.

Cotton and phosphorus slimes

phosphorus slime

  • What can eat: Fruits
  • Favorite thing: Kubnika
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley

Phosphor slimes resemble fireflies and only appear at night. Thanks to the bioluminescence of phosphorus slimes, it is very easy to spot. Phosphorus slimes eat only fruits, and their favorite food is strawberries.

Unlike many other slimes, phosphorus slimes are affected by sunlight. If exposed to UV for too long, they will disappear, so it is recommended to keep them in a place protected from sunlight. High walls and air nets are also required, as slimes can easily fly out of ordinary enclosures using their wings.

Meow Slime

  • What can eat: Meat
  • Favorite thing: Rocky chicken
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Smoldering Valley

The first of the cat slimes, they only eat meat, so the easiest way to keep them full and happy is to fill the coop with lots of chickens and roosters. If they escape from their pen, they will not only empty the entire chicken coop, but also steal vegetables and fruits from nearby gardens.

This can cause the appearance of largo, which will cause even more trouble. Muyare slimes are used for performance-enhancing products and can therefore generate a decent amount of money early on.


Largo slimes are giant slimes that have eaten a plort that is not their own (produced by a different type of slime), causing them to grow and take on the characteristics of the one that produced that plort. Due to their size, largo slimes cannot fit into a vacpack, although they can still be moved around.

A largo slime will produce two different types of plort when fed: the plort it originally produced and the plort it ate, resulting in a largo. When a largo slime gets its favorite food, it will produce both types of plort at the same time.

wild slime

Any largo slimes that have not eaten for a long time will become feral and behave more aggressively. You will know when a largo slime has gone wild by the grimace on its face, the redness of its eyes and the appearance of red sparks around them.

Unlike Warr Slimes, Wild Slimes do not breed and can be easily fed. Feeding wild slimes will produce a plort similar to what they would make in a non-wild state. Wild slimes can also become varrs, just like any largo, so it’s important to keep them full.


  • What she likes the most: Slimes, meat
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley
  • Be careful. Water will help get rid of them.

Warr Slimes

If a largo slime eats a plort that doesn’t produce, it will turn into a Varr. Warr slimes are hostile creatures that eat other slimes to create new varrs. Sort of like an outbreak. Appearances are deceiving – they can appear at any time.

If you can’t find fresh water to destroy the Varr, then the only way is to throw them into the sea or burn them. Easier said than done, especially if there are too many of them.

Gordo slime

Gordo slimes are another type of giant slugs that, unlike largo slimes, are stationary and block passages to new locations, secrets, and so on. Proud slimes are what happens when a large group of slimes of the same type gather in one place. As soon as you proudly feed enough food, he will again shatter into several ordinary slimes. Gordos have the same favorite foods as regular slimes they are made from, but unlike the latter, Gordos do not produce plorts.

Gordo Slimes

rock slime

  • What can eat: Vegetables


Actors requiredExtras and supporting actors are required for the filming of a feature-length Hollywood film.





  • What she likes the most: beetroot
  • Where to find this slime: Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley

Rock slimes, contrary to their name, are not made of rock. Most likely, these blue creatures were named because of these stone spikes on their heads. Rock slimes love to tumble, and while they don’t want to cause harm, they can eventually destroy anything that gets in their way. These creatures do not eat rocks, and prefer to eat vegetables instead. Favorite food is beetroot.

rock slime

Rock slimes are the source of a rare rock plort used to create a strong yet lightweight blue metal alloy. Therefore, you need to be careful with them.

honey slime

  • What can eat: Fruits
  • Favorite thing: Mint mango
  • Where to find this slime: Starlight Coast

Honey slimes are slimes that look like they are made from honey. Due to its sweetness, honey plort is an edible product. The biggest downside to dealing with honey slimes is that nearby slimes will chase their plort trying to eat it, and can become largo or varr as a result.

golden slime

  • What can eat: Omnivore
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley
  • The probability of occurrence is less than 1%. You can’t tame, only feed

Gold slimes are the hardest to catch and the hardest to find, but they produce gold plort (if you feed them food or any plort). When the golden slimes appear, you will hear a sound effect. Creatures are fast enough and will run away if they see your character nearby. Gold slimes don’t have a favorite food, but if my memory serves me, they only ate golden ginger in the original. Unlike most other slimes, gold slimes cannot be eaten by varrs.

slime hunter

  • What can eat: Meat
  • Favorite thing: Kukarekun
  • Where to find this slime: Starlight Coast

Hunter slimes are another type of feline-inspired slime, related to the meow slime, but much less common. Hunter slimes get their name from their unique cloaking ability, which makes every part of their body invisible except for their eyes. Like Muyare slimes, hunters prefer to eat chickens, and roosters are their favorite food.

Due to its wild origin, any largo hunter will immediately become feral. While the plorts produced by hunters are not used to craft any materials, they are notable in that they can be used to create a serum that will grant temporary invisibility to anyone who drinks it.

boom slime

  • What can eat: Meat
  • Favorite thing: Thorny chicken
  • Where to find this slime: Smoldering Valley

Boom slimes are creatures that look like a large chunk of magma with eyes. These slimes are explosive. However, these explosions do not harm the boom slime itself, and the only side effect is a temporary stun.

Although it is very dangerous and difficult to keep boom slugs, experienced players will be able to use them to collect boom plorts, which are used in all kinds of explosive technology, such as rocket engines, and can even be useful for medical purposes.

Boom and crystal slimes

crystal slime

  • What can eat: Vegetables
  • What she likes the most: Wonderful bow
  • Where to find this slime: Smoldering Valley

Like rock slimes, crystal slimes have sharp spikes on their bodies that can harm your character. In addition, crystal slimes can produce sharp and hot crystals to vent their body heat. Fortunately, these crystals can be destroyed by water, and if the slimes themselves are cooled with water, they will temporarily stop producing crystals.

The crystal plorts these slimes produce are separate from the crystals they produce when they roll. They are used to make transparent metals commonly used as building material.

puddle slime

  • What can eat: Water
  • Where to find this slime: Smoldering Valley
  • Appears in water

Puddle slimes are water slimes that only live in shallow water, and if they stay out of the water for too long, they will evaporate. Although difficult to handle, they are less violent than other slimes and, due to their shyness, prefer to be in groups of four or less. With their help, you will get the product you need to create better water.

fire slime

  • What can eat: Ashes
  • Where to find this slime: Smoldering Valley
  • Only spawns where there is lava

Fire slimes are the exact opposite of puddle slimes, as they live in lava and feed on ash, but also disappear if placed in any inappropriate environment. Due to the composition of fire slimes, they cannot be placed in enclosures with other types of slimes. The fire plort produced by fire slimes is not as profitable, and while raising fire slimes can be troublesome, their plorts are commonly used for stoves and fireplaces.

good luck slime

  • What can eat: Meat
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley
  • The probability of occurrence is less than 1%. You can’t tame, only feed

Like golden slimes, they are extremely rare creatures that are seemingly impossible to capture. More closely related to meow slimes than to gold slimes, fortune slimes are obsessed with shiny objects and eat coins, causing them to tinkle as they move. Such slimes do not have a favorite food, but they will eat any meat, and instead of plort, they will allow you to earn money.

good luck slime

Because luck slimes are incapable of producing any plort, scientists speculate that they are the wrong muyar slimes that have eaten too many coins.

Angler Slime

  • What can eat: Meat
  • Favorite thing: Sea chicken
  • Where to find this slime: Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley
  • Spawns near a body of water and/or in a cave

Angler Slimes are a new species in Slime Rancher 2. Previously they could only be seen in the depths of the Sea of ​​Slimes, but now they can be found on the coast of Rainbow Island. Using their bait, they can stun the chickens, as they love meat. Sea chickens are their favorite food.

Because anglers are accustomed to living in the deep sea, they can withstand severe pressure, as evidenced by the plort they produce. Because of this characteristic, anglerfish are commonly used as deep diving material.

Bat Slime

  • What can eat: Fruits
  • Favorite thing: Granite
  • Where to find this slime: Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley

Bat Slime is another new slime type in Slime Rancher 2, similar to Phosphorus in that these creatures prefer dark environments such as caves, eat fruits, and react negatively to sunlight. Unlike phosphorus slimes, sunlight only irritates the bats, they don’t disappear at all.

The plorts the bat produces are used in navigational and sonar technology to help explorers get through even the most difficult and dangerous areas where they might otherwise get lost.

Fluttering Slime

  • What can eat: Lunar dew nectar
  • What she likes the most: Moondew Nectar (Cannot be grown in a garden)
  • Where to find this slime: Starlight Coast

Flutter Slimes – Butterfly-inspired slimes that feed exclusively on nectar. Any other food is not suitable for them. Although they are not the only slimes that can fly, flutter slimes do it better than others.

A unique aspect of flutter slimes is that their aura reduces the aggression of other slimes in the vicinity, so they should be allowed to roam freely around the ranch. Plorts that produce flutter slimes are not used in crafting (yet).

Ringtail Slime

  • What can eat: Omnivore
  • Where to find this slime: Greenhouse, Starlight Coast, Smoldering Valley
  • You can find it at night or during the day, in the form of a statue

Ring-tailed slimes are tanuki-inspired creatures that only appear at night and turn to stone when exposed to sunlight. When active, they are primarily known for running around and trying to steal everything they see. Unlike many other slimes, ring slimes are omnivores, and therefore eat vegetables, fruits, and meat. Once a ringtail slime starts eating, it will not stop as long as there is any food left around it.

Although ringtail slimes do not produce plort with every meal they consume, it can still be obtained with proper care and feeding. Ring-tailed plorts are known for their durability and flexibility, and are used as material for everything from small souvenirs to large shelters.
