Slime is a hazard introduced in Pikmin 2... Again?. It appears as an orange-colored fluid similar to sap in most forms, but another form of it is a transparent colorless drool from the Emperor Bulblax. It slows Pikmin down, and those suffocating from it will have it engulfing their stems. The slime will temporarily remain on affected Pikmins' stems even after being whistled, meaning they will continue suffering for a short moment, but the Pikmin will shake it off shortly afterward and be fine if saved early enough. Slime Pikmin and Glow Pikmin are resistant to slime.
