Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]
History[edit | edit source]
in the first Yo-Kai Watch game, Slimamander is fought as the first boss of the game, in battle, Slimamander will attack 3 times on his turn (one for each head), the Player must aim at one of his heads, and attack until it opens. If the mouth opens and a tongue sticks out, aim at another head. If the mouth opens and an eye is inside, stay targeted, this is Slimamander's weak spot. A good thing to note is that when one of Slimamander's heads are opened, that head will not attack, also when Slimamander does his Slimy Fire Breath attack, the Yo-kai in front of an opened mouth will take no damage. So if your having trouble with how Slimamander attacks 3 in a row, try taking out all his heads, then focus on the eye. After Slimamander takes some damage, He'll hide his eye again and the cycle starts again.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Origin[edit | edit source]
Slimamander may be based on the nozuchi (野槌, "wild hammer"), a snake youkai with a thick, hairy body resembling a mallet in shape, and no features on its head save for a large mouth (and sometimes tiny eyes). It feeds on small wildlife and travels down the mountains it inhabits by biting on its tail and tumbling down slopes. It's very aggressive towards humans, and will roll down onto anyone disturbing its nest and inflict a nasty, painful bite on them. It is one of Japan's most ancient youkai species, and is considered to be more of a mountain kami than an actual youkai.
Name Origin[edit | edit source]
"Slimamander" is a portmanteau of slime and salamander. "Mitsumata-nozuchi" translates as "three-pronged wild hammer".
