Rimuru Tempest is the main protagonist and the titular character of the isekai light novel series That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, written by Fuse, illustrated by Mitz Vah, and adapted into an anime series by the studio Eight Bit. In the story, he was known as the Japanese salaryman Satoru Mikami in his previous life, before being killed and subsequently reincarnated into another world.

As one of the main protagonists to come out of the Fall 2018 lineup, Rimuru has managed to make his way into the pantheon of anime character popularity contests, just like he quickly rose to becoming a ruler of his own kingdom in the novels. He immediately became one of the top favorites to win International Saimoe League's 2019 edition, winning the Aquamarine pendant and eventually the year's Scepter, where he defeated fellow super rookie Sakuta Azusagawa in the final.

The slime enjoys a massive following among Chinese fans, where he is widely celebrated as a "Moe King" / "Cute King" because of his feminine appearance.

Rimuru is the first male debutant to win the ISML Main Tournament, and the second debutant overall to win the Scepter since Oreki became champion in 2013. He is also the first canonically non-binary character to win any major contest. Despite being genderless due to his physiology, the slime identifies as a male, just like in his previous life.
