During a chance encounter with his colleague, an assailant appears out of nowhere and stabs him. As he succumbs to his injuries, a mysterious voice echoes in his mind and recites a series of commands that he fails to understand.
After regaining consciousness, Satoru discovers that he has been reincarnated as a Slime in an unknown world. At the same time, he also gains new abilities, particularly the ability called "Predator", which allows him to devour anything and mimic his appearance and abilities. He runs into Veldora, a powerful 'Storm Dragon', who has been sealed away for the past 300 years for burning a city to the ground. Feeling sorry for him, Satoru befriends the dragon and promises to help him destroy the seal. They decide to exchange names, Veldora giving him the name Rimuru and receiving the name Tempest in return. Slime then consumes the dragon along with his prison to analyze the spell within himself and finally free Veldora.
The disappearance of Veldora's aura creates a power vacuum that eventually makes Rimuru the leader of all the beings that inhabit the Great Forest of Jura, who accept him as their ruler and together found the nation of Tempest. With Rimuru's strength, wisdom, and idealistic vision, the new nation rapidly grows in strength and influence. Soon, Rimuru and his minions draw the attention of nearby foreign powers, from monarchs and legendary heroes to demon lords, some seeking to become their allies, while others seek to take advantage of them or destroy them outright.
