- "These slimes are full of bombs... this might be considered a safety violation."
- ―Lance, Epic Battle Fantasy 4
The Sludge Slime is a translucent black blob with either a missile, mine or bomb sticking out of it. The missile is the same as the one in Air Strike's multi-hit version.
Like other slimes, the Sludge Slime is weak and can be slain easily. Unlike those of its species, the slime is unable to inflict the Slimed status. Instead, this slime has the ability to self-destruct, dealing magical Bomb-elemental damage and possibly inflicting the status Stagger to the victim. Its other attack is considerably weaker, as it only deals minor physical damage.
If the slime can't be taken out quickly, it may be best to Syphon the foe so it will be unable to self-destruct, leaving the slime with its weaker attack. Otherwise, it may be best to simply kill the Sludge Slime with a Holy or multi-target Thunder or Fire attack (such as Shine, Thunderstorm or Flameburst) which you'll likely obtain by the time you reach the Waste Disposal Plant.
