Slugterra slugs are a creature in the Disney XD children's animated television show, "Slugterra." Characters of the show collect and train these slugs to compete in battles against other slugs.
In the Slugterra television show, characters known as "slugslingers" battle against other slugslingers using their collection of Slugterra slugs. These slugs begin as benign, innocent-looking creatures but transform into much larger and more powerful versions of themselves when a battle ensues. The different types of slugs have different powers, such as electricity, fire and healing. Slugslingers battle their transformed slugs against each other, and the winning slugslinger often receives one of the loser's slugs as the price.
