Acidic Swamp Oozes are level 39-41 mobs found in Dustwallow Marsh. The Hearthstone minion's Battlecry reflects the Oozes' tendency to ingest objects including weaponry, armor and even bags of goods.

Oozes are a type of mindless slime creatures. They are known to adapt to their environments, taking on aspects of their surroundings, which may account for the variety of oozes seen on Azeroth and beyond.
These strange creatures share an elemental heritage, but have been corrupted by the powers of chaos. Now they exist as tortured masses of semi-sentient goo.


  • Acidic Swamp Ooze's flavor text is a reference to its card art during the Hearthstone alpha, which was a crude drawing of an ooze wearing a Flamenco hat, created by Dan Nguyen.[1]
  • The Acidic Swamp Ooze's effect of destroying a weapon can be seen as a parallel/reference to the Magic: The Gathering card Acidic Slime, which, upon being summoned, has the effect of destroying a target artifact, enchantment, or land card.
  • Former Hearthstone streamer Noxious is currently the owner of the original art piece.[2]
