Slithy, when applied to a monster, is explained in the code as meaning having a "serpent body",[1] but is also used about unserpentine monsters such as jellyfish and sharks.

Slithy monsters may not kick,[2] nor may they jump through mundane means (the spell works) [3] or ride a steed[4]

Having no feet, they cannot wear boots.[5][6] A slithy monster which is medium-sized or smaller may move through iron bars.[7]
