The Slim Burble is a monster in Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy.

Description Edit

Journal Description Edit

Has a suicidal defense method that involves creating an explosive charge before launching at its target and detonating…This can be advantageous when releasing captured Slim Burbles towards obstacles. - Book of Sphinx

Museum Description Edit

Sporting spindlier limbs when compared to other Burbles, the Slim Burble is capable of laying eggs with alarming frequency. Living in warrens built at the base of cliff faces, its fiery temperament derives from a diet that primarily consists of freshly-flowing lava. - Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

Slim Burbles, which looked frog-like, lived in the base of cliffs in small caves. Before blowing itself up, the Slim Burble would lay an egg by coughing it up through its mouth. Their self-destruction ability and temper came from the creature's diet of fresh-flowing magma. The Slim Burble was also a helpful tool after it was captured. If the Burble was released near a cracked obstacle, the obstacle would be destroyed.

Strategy Edit

Monster's Strategy - When it emerges from it's den, it will immediately produce more Sim Burbles. They will approach Sphinx and when close enough, they will stop completely and glow red. After a few seconds, they will jump towards Sphinx and explode upon colliding with him (or an object). If they miss, they will repeat their previous actions until they manage to hit something. Strategy for Sphinx - All you really need to do is avoid it, meaning don't let it jump at you and don't attack it, as it will explode in your face. These are the only monsters that you can catch without hitting first.

    • It does not sparkle despite it being ready to catch.

  • The Slim Burble has six teeth. When they jump however, you can only see five.
  • The Slim Burble balances on one foot while scratching their head with the other foot.
