The Max Slimer is a boss in the Castlevania series.


A gigantic, gelatinous blob of slime that tends to crawl over floors and ceilings. It usually moves, lunges, jumps, or drops toward its victims when they come near, many times inflicting diverse status ailments. When struck, little blobs of slime will come out from it and the main body will gradually lose mass until it is finally destroyed.


Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

The Max Slimer is the boss of the Clock Tower in Castle A, and guards the first regular portal between both castles. Its room is a massive laboratory filled with large glass capsules containing an unknown substance. One of them is broken, suggesting that's where the creature escaped from.

The Max Slimer is a larger form of the regular Slime enemies and attacks in a similar manner. It oozes around the room, occasionally jumping and changing color. Depending on which color it has turned to, it will inflict a different type of status ailment on contact:

When hit, the boss will shrink a little bit and shed Tiny Slimes around it. The majority of its offensive capabilities comes precisely from these slimes, which can crowd the room if not immediately taken care of. Despite of this, the Max Slimer is a very easy boss and cannot withstand a concentrated attack.

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth

The slimer returns as an amoeba-like creature in The Adventure ReBirth. It first appears in Stage 1 under the floor, attacking the player as they move along. It cannot be reached here, however, and thus cannot be harmed.

It later reappears in Stage 2 as the level's mid-boss, and tosses skulls around the room. At first, it may seem to be invincible, but when damaged enough it will reveal its pink core, which is its weak spot, and which it shifts around its body in order to protect it.
