[edit] Trivia

  • Previously, some multiplayer servers used slimeballs as tokens or cash due to the slimeballs having no crafting purpose. However, starting from Beta 1.7, Slimeballs have gained various other crafting uses, making its currency usage undesirable.
  • Since Slimes can sometimes spawn in spaces they do not fit in, it is possible to find random slimeballs lying around in caverns.
  • No Slimes can escape from water of any depth, As of the snapshot 14w06a Slimes can now swim in the water making slime farm water trap completely useless
  • Slimeballs are obtainable through inventory editing in Pocket Edition, but are completely useless.
