The Slinker is a Gem Monster that first appeared in "Reformed", serving as the episode's antagonist, and in "Unboxing" serving as a minor antagonist.

Appearance

She resembles a dark, flowering plant. The monster consists of four dark-blue petals, which acts as her mouth, and are light-blue on the inside. Each petal also has five thorn-like projections nearing the tip. The petals are connected together by a darker-blue bulb that tapers to a point. The bulb is connected to multiple vines used as appendages, with two vines having a leaf-like structure at the end.

History

Note: Please add more. With good details.

Abilities

  • Physical Vigor: The Slinker is a very fast, limber, sturdy creature, able to withstand multiple hits from Amethyst and Garnet. She also has great physical strength, able to force Amethyst to retreat to her gem with a single bite from her "jaws" or a squeeze from her tentacles.
  • Stealth: As her name implies, the Slinker is very good at moving quietly and hiding.
  • Burrowing: She is able to move through the ground with ease, forming circular tunnels that lead into different parts of Amethyst's Room.
  • Prehensile Appendages: Her vines are very prehensile, able to entangle enemies with a tight grip to the point of constriction.
  • Projectile Goop: She can secrete a dark, ink-like substance that she seems to be able to shoot across long distances.

Trivia

  • She forced Amethyst to retreat to her gemstone four times.
    • As such, she is the only known Gem Monster to have forced a Crystal Gem to regenerate.
  • She is one of the few corrupted Gems whose gemstone was not seen on the show.
    • However, her gemstone is shown in her model sheet.
  • Steven coined her name. Amethyst disliked the name, but Garnet claimed that "the name stuck", and thus they referred to the corrupted Gem by this name.
  • She resembles the flowering plant Hydnora africana.
  • Throughout her debut appearance, she seems to attack using stealth and the element of surprise when fighting.
  • The Slinker is shown attacking the Gems in the Beach House during the short "Unboxing".
    • She appears to be able to squirt out a form of slime/ink.
