Over the weekend, though, Twitter user Crexian thought he saw a car shaped like Dragon Quest's Slime on the highway. Sorry! It wasn't.

But Slime from Dragon Quest sure looks like that car.

Crexian's photo was retweeted over 28,000 times.

However... here's a side view.

That is actually "Pichon-kun," a character from Osaka-based company Daikin. The character represents a drop of moisture, because Daikin's air conditioners won't dry out your house.

There is a whole fleet of cars, it seems. These cars are actually customized Toyota iQs.

Besides the blue Pichon-kun automobiles, there are pink ones.

And somebody spotted a brown one. This doesn't look like a Dragon Quest Slime. It's a turd on wheels.
