Sligs are the backbone of Oddworld's industrial security. They are also the loyal, if reluctant, henchmen of the Glukkons. They are among the most common creatures in any industrial region of Oddworld.
Sligs are small, stocky, disgusting creatures that inhabit various areas of Oddworld. They are often described by some as polliwog/octopus-like humanoids. Their heads have an appearance similar to that of a featherless crow with five tentacle-like mandibles that protrude from their face. The appearance of their eyes is unclear as sligs are never seen without masks on, apart from a single concept art piece in "The Art of Oddworld Inhabitants: The First Ten Years", where the eyes are described as "pathetic, small, helpless-looking." Sligs are somewhat short in stature since their back legs are vestigial and have fused together into a small tail-like appendage. They therefore spend the early years of their life using their front limbs as makeshift legs. As a result, their forearms are oversized due to the increase in muscle mass required for locomotion.
