Manga and anime handling[edit]

In the manga, "God Slime" was the name given to the monster formed by having "Metal Reflect Slime" copy the form of "The God of the Obelisk". After it was fused with "Revival Jam", the term "Immortal God Slime" was mentioned twice. Every other time since then, it was still called "God Slime".

The Japanese anime was exactly the same as the manga. (Although the term "Immortal God Slime" is used three times rather than two.) I haven't been able to check the English anime but, as far as I know, it used the name "Egyptian God Slime" instead of "God Slime" and did not have an equivalent term for "Immortal God Slime".

The official English anime site says "Egyptian God Slime" is a Fusion Monster. In the manga, Dark Yugi calls "God Slime" a Fusion of "Revival Jam" and "Metal Reflect Slime". And the OCG card is also taking this stance. I don't like this classification, since the monster was called "(Egyptian) God Slime" before it was ever fused with "Revival Jam".

We're currently inconsistently handling the manga and anime pages. We have two pages for the manga version and one for the anime. It should be the same number of pages for each.

I think it is handiest for us to go with two pages for each, so we can describe the monster when it was and wasn't fused with "Revival Jam". It wouldn't be wrong to have one page each either in the same vein as how the "Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon"/"Mammoth Graveyard" Fusion is still treated as "Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon". However I'm not fond of the idea of saying "(Egyptian) God Slime" is only the Fusion version.

In the anime, when Marik refers to it after it is Fusion Summoned, the Crunchyroll subtitles are "It's an immortal Egyptian God Slime", treating "immortal" are merely an adjective modifying the card named "God Slime" (or "Egyptian God Slime", since Crunchyroll often uses the localized card names). Although the way Kaiba says its name ("He deliberately took the attack so that he could bring out his immortal Egyptian God Slime.") makes it seem like it might be the monster's actual name. I suspect the manga is similar. (In the dub, there is no separate name for it after being Fusion Summoned; its considered to be exactly the same monster but with a new ability.)
I think the "Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon"/"Mammoth Graveyard" fusion is a good comparison, because like that case, there was a Fusion Summon without a new monster being created. However, the problem is that in this case Egyptian God Slime wasn't originally a Fusion Monster, but became one after "Revival Jam" was fused into it to provide its regeneration ability. Since the manga didn't really distinguish between Fusion Monsters and other monsters (other than the fact that Fusion Monsters weren't actually cards), it didn't really need to care about the fact that the monster didn't change after being Fusion Summoned.
I think giving the two forms separate pages in both media is probably the best course of action, despite the fact that they're the same monster in some ways. That way we can refer to the appropriate one as a Fusion Monster and the other as just a Token. --SnorlaxMonster 11:00, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
To correct one of my previous points, "Immortal God Slime" is mentioned three times in the manga. Similar to the three anime instances:
  • Dark Marik: A wall you can't break... Immortal God Slime!!
  • Dark Yugi: An Immortal God Slime...!!
  • Kaiba: It was all a ploy to get the Immortal God Slime on the field...
We could go with the following pages:
  • "God Slime (manga)" and "Egyptian God Slime (anime)" for the pages for "Metal Reflect Slime" copying "Obelisk".
  • "God Slime (manga Fusion)" and "Egyptian God Slime (anime Fusion)" for the pages for the Fusion with "Revival Jam" and list "Immortal God Slime" as an alt name for each of these.

If we give them separate pages, I think we should use the name "Immortal God Slime". It's the closest we have to a separate name for the Fusion Monster as distinct from the Token. --SnorlaxMonster 08:49, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
