A bucket of slime may be obtained by using a bucket on the well next to the King Slime during Slime is of the Essence. Filling the bucket results in a message stating "You fill the Bucket of... slime?".
If players fill an empty bucket by using it on the King Slime, they will get the message "You are part of the solution." Using the bucket of slime on the King Slime results in a message stating "You are part of the problem." The same will happen if used on Prince Slimes. They can be emptied to get an empty bucket back.
