If Squishy Ball was blue and had a pointy head...

So Dan writes a rare videogame reference, and he busts out a somewhat obscure one. I know (and love) that Dragon Quest is a massive franchise - even more popular than Final Fantasy in Japan, but very few of my gamer friends have actually played any of them. I bring up how great Dragon Quest VIII is (really great!), and they nod politely as they wait to change the subject.

In any case, the Squishy Ball would appear to be a distant relative of the Slime family of monsters. Anyone who's seriously played any of the Dragon Quest games must've slain thousands of these cute buggers.

I only played the first few entries in the series, and only beat the first one. The first was a free game with Nintendo Power (it was known as Dragon Warrior in the States), the others were rentals. With that said, I would venture I only killed about a few hundred slimes... maybe in the very low four digits.

Dee, thanks for linking the reference. You saved me the trouble.
