The Heroic Fashion Pod blueprint is available from The Lab's Builder's Shop for 200 as soon as The Lab is purchased. However, it is only available on the PlayStation 4 & 5 edition of Slime Rancher.
When the gadget is placed, a node is created that the player can use to vac fashion pods from as items, the pod items can then be used on slimes. If the pods hit any surface other than a slime, they simply dissappear. Slimes can unintentionally apply themselves with pods by wandering through the node.
Fashion Pods can be replaced with other fashion pods, or removed completely by using the Fashion Pod Remover.
- 1.3.2 - Fixed a bug where Playset Slime Toys were not properly reducing the agitation of slimes dressed in the corresponding Playset Fashion Pods.
- 1.3.0b-co1 (PS4 only) - Implemented.
According to Ian McConville, the Heroic Fashion Pod was heavily inspired by Dragon Quest equipment. It also physically resembles the Great Defender and Tempered Calibur from Spiral Knights. They also bear some resemblence to the Master Sword and Hylian Shield from The Legend of Zelda series.
- The Heroic Fashion Pod, along with the Piratey Fashion Pod and Galactic Fashion Pod, are the only Fashion Pods to be mutually exclusive to a specific Console. It shares this trait with the Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald Chroma Packs. They are also the only Fashion Pods to affect a slime's behavior towards a Slime Toy besides the Scuba Fashion Pod.
