The Corrupt Slime is a Hardmode slime appearing in The Corruption and Underground Corruption. It splits into two to three Slimelings upon death. Both its original form and the Slimelings can inflict the Darkness debuff.

Like most other slimes, the Corrupt Slime will be passive towards any player with the Royal Gel(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) accessory equipped.

The Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version also feature the exclusive Shadow Slime variant.

  • Since the Corrupt Slime splits into two to three new enemies upon death, it is great for farming items like Gel, Souls of Night, or the Blindfold. For instance, the chance that at least one Blindfold is dropped from the Corrupt Slime and three Slimelings is 3.94% / 7.76%, as opposed to 1% / 2% from a single Corrupt Slime or Slimeling.
  • Care should be taken with "volcano-type" farms. When the Corrupt Slime breaks into Slimelings, they will be able to phase through blocks for a short period of time, potentially reaching the player.
    • A Royal Gel can neutralize this threat, however, Slimelings piled up in one area may bring enemy spawning to a halt. Some sort of secondary termination stations are recommended beside the farming spot.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Corrupt Slime: "Steeped in the power of Corruption, these slimes can survive being cut apart into smaller pieces, unlike their untainted brethren."


  • Desktop 1.4.4: Monster Meat drop rate reduced from 1/1000 to 1/1500. In Don't Starve seeds, changed from 1/200 to 1/500.
