They were extremely slow and weak, but will leap onto Alice to suck on her health until she dies. The only way to get rid of them was to use the butterfly dodge maneuver. Prior to attacking, a Slithering Ruin will pause and arch its body slightly, giving Alice warning to dodge away.
They can be defeated with any weapon, but the clockwork bomb is the most effective, as it draws the Slithering Ruins' attention and destroys them if they are caught in its explosion. The splash damage of the Hobby Horse and the Teapot Cannon can also defeat multiple Slithering Ruins at a time. Overall, these creatures can be safely ignored while Alice focuses on bigger threats (especially if they respawn), but care should be taken not to let one sneak up and attack.
- Slithering Ruin may have been taken from Alice's repressed memories of leeches being used on her in Rutledge Asylum, as they hold many similar physical and personal similarities.
- Slithering Ruin often acted as an endless supply of distractions for more dangerous creatures.
