    If this has the exact same A.I as the King Slime, I will have to say no thank you.

    Slimy Tornado is not original(which is fine, but tornado doesn't mesh with slime), and is quite a bit stronger than Spider Staff when it's in about the same tier progression.

    Now that I think of it, all of your drops are downgrades of something. :sigh:

    Can't you at least come up with one or two weapons with a slightly more... amusing mechanic? It's a freaking mechanical slime for hell's sake.

    Also, put up your flame shields for people shouting we don't need more mechs.-_-

    It's better, I think.

    Uhh, how does a blob of gelatin become Mechanical?

    A) Not entirely sure why a Mech slime is releasing Crimslimes.
    B) This basically is a King Slime with upgraded stats.
    C) All drops are just upgraded/downgraded versions of existing items, except the slicer one. (And honestly I heavily dislike the idea of having a downgraded Tempest staff. We have few enough summoner weapons as it is, the ones that exist are creative and not just up/downgraded versions of each other.)
    D) Like I said in the last Mech Slime thread (which is now locked), "Mechanical Slime" is a contradicting phrase.

    Sorry, I didn't see a previous mechanical slime thread, so that's why I accidentally (sort of) made this suggestion.

    And in general anyways, my suggestions aren't great.

    Last thread was locked, so its not a problem.

    mmmm... i SORTA like it a bit, but as someone said before,how does slime become mechanical? maybe you could name it grey goo or something?
    and also why crimslimes and slimers? why not make a new slime altogether?
    i dont want to beat the dead horse, but, i dont think anyone would use a bunch of downgrades to something instead of the actual item.

    This is not considered a duplicate, because the nature of his concept is distinct from previous mechanical slime bosses.

    I probably should've realized that this is Terraria and we don't question things here. Possibility is no longer a problem, keep your suggestion going.

    Ironically, if you consider it from the perspective of nano-bots, a mechanical slime is a highly logical possibility.

    Special abilities would focus on spreading and infection, likely dropping more slimes constantly, and maybe inflicting a poison-like debuff upon contact.

    It kinda reminds me of that show Generator Rex that used to be on Cartoon Network. Maybe a weapon referential to that would be cool.
