Slime Rancher Wiki

Fear is an emotion Slimes can experience which causes them to flee from whatever is scaring them.

Slimes experiencing fear are able to jump higher than normal, and any Slimes stacking with one another while experiencing fear will break their stacks. Fear wears off naturally as long as nothing prolongs it, and is unaffected by Hunger or Agitation.

Sources of Fear

There are multiple sources which can cause slimes to experience fear.

The Tarr

Tarr are the most common source of fear for slimes, appearing frequently in the wild in areas where slimes often cross-contaminate. Coralled slimes jumping while experiencing fear during a Tarr outbreak are capable of breaking their corral's Air Net, if one is installed.

  • 1.4.0 - Slimes got a facelift! The art tech we developed for the Secret Style Pack resulted in all slimes getting new, crisper, more detailed faces with added depth. The new, beautified faces are available for every rancher with this update.
  • 0.6.0 - Added Solar Anomalies along with the rest of the Glass Desert; Fire Pillars can inflict Fear on small slimes.
  • 0.3.3 - Slimes that are actively fleeing Tarrs will now attempt to break up their slime stacks, because when things go south, it's every slime for themselves.
  • Before 0.2.0 - Implemented.


  • Starving and Agitated slimes will not show the characteristic scared face of a slime experiencing fear, but will still try to flee the source of their fear.
