Acid Puddles are non-intelligent green slimes that ooze around the Gauntlet. These mindless foes drift in random directions and will damage heroes upon contact.


Gauntlet (NES)

Acid Puddles cannot be destroyed by any means other than using two Bomb Potions; one bomb will stun them, another will kill them (but only if they're stunned first). Acid Puddles are considered solid creatures and cannot be walked through, despite their liquid nature. In later areas, they create literal navigation hazards. Acid Puddles are thankfully not generated, so there's a finite amount per area.

Gauntlet II

Gauntlet: Legends

Acid Puddles, functioning as Anklebiters here and don't cause damage by mere contact; instead, their attack consists of minor "leaping" at their target. They are generated by pools of slime. They're found in certain areas of the Town.

Gauntlet: Dark Legacy

Acid Puddles are found in the Sky Dominion, but are otherwise identical to those in Legends.
