This blue curry dish creatively makes foodies rethink how they envision their meals should look with a peculiar azure-colored sauce. Known as Slime Curry, this dish takes its color inspiration from Nintendo's popular retro game Dragon Quest.

The Slime is the tiny blue teardrop-shaped character that is the mascot of the Dragon Quest game franchise. While the box of the blue curry doesn't come with any official Dragon Quest logos, it's clear from the name and the retro pixelated box design that the curry's color was most definitely inspired by the Dragon Quest game. Inside the box is a pre-made curry that foodies can turn into slime by adding unconventional ingredients like 'fukujinzuke.' The bright blue coloring of the curry adds a bizarre appeal to the dish that only the most adventurous foodies would be brave enough to try.
