Slithy is a property which monsters can have. It is explained in the code as meaning having a "serpent body",[1] but is also used by some non-serpentine monsters such as jellyfish and sharks.

Slithy monsters cannot kick,[2] wear boots,[3][4] ride a steed,[5] or jump (except with the jumping spell).[6]

A slithy monster which is medium-sized or smaller can move through iron bars.[7]
