Slime Mold is a faintly glowing object that can be found in Shaded Citadel and Underhang. They are orange, circular shaped, and can be on the ground, walls, or ceiling. Slime Mold are accompanied by orange patches in the background that cannot be interacted with.
Slime Mold acts primarily as a food source. They can be found growing in groups of 2-5. They restore 1 food pip when eaten, except for Hunter and Artificer, in which case, they restore 0.25 food pips.
Slime Mold also provides a faint glow when held, although much weaker than that of other glowing objects, such as Flashbangs or Lanterns. Although weak, this light can reveal if a dark room contains Coalescipedes. Slime Mold can also be used as a distraction for Monster Kelp, as they may grab and eat the Slime Mold instead of Slugcat.

- There is a large variant of Slime Mold, which fills 2 food pips when consumed. It is exclusive to the spawning room of Gourmand, where Gourmand is always holding one by default, and in one of Gourmand's challenges. This variant also provides a larger radius of light.[v1.9 Downpour only]
- Although Slime Mold does not provide any heating properties of its own, the light attached to Slime Mold growths provides 0.3x the warming effect of a Lantern.[v1.9 Downpour only]
