Doc is an especially powerful healer slug that's introduced in "The Slugout", and later close friend of hero, Eli Shane.


There's one healer slug who stands out from all the others, and that's Eli's slug DOC, the legendary Energy Elemental slug. Doc was once part of Billy's arsenal until, Billy not knowing Doc's true value, rejected him and was rescued by Eli. He's Eli's faithful companion, an ultimate healing weapon and eager to prove himself. Extremely powerful and more ancient than your average slug, Doc's got slug moves most people have never even seen before!



Known Moves

  • Protoform Abilities - Minor but powerful healing powers, like a warm compress, topical ointment or localized antidote.
  • Medici - Shoots a very powerful healing ball of light that is absorbed by the slug or person it is shot at. Cures internal ailments.
  • Healswarm - Emits a powerful light glow that can heal a ghouled slug.

Possible Moves

  • Skinsplint - Spins a protective cocoon of light around an injured or broken area to heal it.
  • Lightshield - Small sparks form a protective wall or bubble like a force field to protect against toxins.
  • Slugmage - Casts protective shell of light over a slinger's slug arsenal to prevent ghouling.
  • Healadin - Swarm of sparks forms a suit of protective light armor. The slinger becomes impervious to ghouls.


  • Medest (unofficial name): "Doc" + "Charger" - Forms a massive healing ball of light that reverses the effects of a Vamparo.


Please note: These are moves that the Ghoul Energy Elemental "has" but this does not confirm that a Ghouled form actually exists or will appear in the show as it has never appeared and might or might not exist in theory.

  • Darkleach - Shoots a very powerful ball of dark light that is absorbed by the slug or person it is shot at. Worsens internal ailments.

List of Elemental Relatives



  • Doc was the first and only Elemental Slug introduced before the events of Slugterra: Return of the Elementals, and was also the only one to not have been ghouled. And was the first Elemental to achieve Guardian status.
  • Doc doesn't need to be controlled by Slug Fu because he and Eli are already good friends and he is used to having a slinger to sling him, however the other Elementals are used to being solo for at least 300 years or so.
