The Slime Blower is a Ghostbusting tool first introduced in 1989 during the Vigo Incident. They were utilized only by Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz. The Slime Blowers are used to spray positively charged Psychomagnotheric Slime.
Primary Canon HistoryEdit
After the discovery of the River of Slime and the return of the Ghostbusters, experiments conducted on samples of the Psychomagnotheric Slime led Egon Spengler and Ray to develop Slime Blower equipment. On New Year's Eve 1989, the Slime Blowers were used on the inside of the Statue of Liberty to help animate it, Janosz Poha, Vigo the Carpathian, and later, Ray himself when he was possessed by Vigo.
Ghostbusters: The Video GameEdit
During the Shandor Incident of Thanksgiving 1991, the positively charged Psychomagnotheric Slime that the Mark II Slimer Blower attachment that the Experimental Proton Pack uses is colored green instead of the pinkish color of the original strain. No explanation is given for this. Aside from its alternate color, the Slime Blower also possess a Slime Tether feature that can be used to capture ghosts without spending time weakening them in the game.
Secondary Canon HistoryEdit
Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Stylized Versions)Edit
The Mark II Slime Blower's Slime Tether is replaced by the Slime Mine, which the player can charge. The longer the charge, the larger the mine.
During a summer visit to New Orleans, the Ghostbusters were heckled by an angry mob who didn't want them to trap their beloved Marie Laveau. Peter Venkman strapped on a Slime Blower and doused the crowd in positively charged pink slime. The mob was neutralized and the Ghostbusters drove on to meet with their clients. As Peter went it alone temporarily, he ran afoul of the Phantom Truck Driver. When the Proton Pack proved ineffective, Peter spotted a Slime Blower and got an idea. He fired at the truck but discovered it was on the Slime Tether setting. As a result, the Phantom Big Rig crashed and was wrecked.
