The ochre jelly first appeared in the original Dungeons & Dragons set (1974).
The ochre jelly appeared in the third edition Monster Manual (2000) under the "ooze" entry, and the version 3.5 Monster Manual (2003).
An ochre jelly resembles a giant amoeba, consisting of a thick, porous, golden sludge. It lurks in dungeons, slowly sludging its way along floors, walls and ceilings alike, under doors and through cracks, looking for victims. When it finds them, it extends, latches onto them, and then proceeds to engulf and constrict them. The ochre jelly reproduces asexually, and can sometimes be found with several of its divided offspring.
They cannot speak, and are neutral in alignment.
