15-year-old Eli Shane just a regular kid from the suburbs except for one thing: he comes from a long line of Shanes, each of whom has made the journey from the surface to protect Slugterra, and the slugs that make the underground world so special. Now its Eli's turn to be Slugterra's next Shane whether he's ready or not! Unfortunately, the slugslinging tournament he enters to prove that he's ready, pretty quickly shows that he's not! So when word of this new Shane reaches the ears of the nefarious Dr. Blakk, he's not too worried yet.
Deep in the underground world of SLUGTERRA, young ELI SHANE and his crew of SLUGSLINGERS fight for justice, dueling it out using magical transforming SLUGS fired from amped-up customized blasters!
Slugslingers of all types and loyalties roam the 99 known caverns of the world, battling it out in friendly duels or intense clashes. But there is one who stands out from the rest, a beacon of justice in the world known as THE SHANE. Eli’s dad, Will Shane, was this hero until he went missing years ago, and now Eli must travel down from our world to take up the mantle his father left behind.
Eli may have the name and the genes, but he’ll have to work hard to prove himself worthy when it comes to the other slugslingers. He and his team will have to master the art of SLUGSLINGING; collecting new slugs and learning to understand the tough little creatures’ constantly evolving powers. Luckily they get to do it while charging around on cool mecha-beasts and modding out their awesome blasters!
There's KORD, the troll mechanic who fixes the team’s mecha-beasts and upgrades their slugslinging gear. This mountain of muscle has a big heart to match his giant biceps, and a wicked slinging arm of his own.
PRONTO, the proud and knowledgeable molenoid tracker is a master rogue, lover and adventurer… or at least that’s how he tells it. For a tracker his sense of direction is surprisingly awful. Luckily his Slugsniper rifle aim is pretty good! He eventually gets the team where they need to go; it’s just too bad he’s been kicked-out of almost every cavern they hit!
And TRIXIE, a spunky young girl whose dream is to create an award-winning documentary on the slugs. These funny little creatures have feelings, a chirp-based language, and a society all their own, which she’s determined to reveal through her hilarious one-minute Slugisodes. No slouch on the slugslinging field, Trixie’s blaster packs a mean slug punch! Though she likes to keep an eye out for unusual slugs, Trixie’s always got her head in the game and can often spot an exit or a smart strategy when the team is caught up in the fight.
But it’s their leader ELI who keeps the crew together. Despite his young age, his natural ability means he’s the hottest new slugslinger in town, and his wit is as quick as his draw. The first can get him into trouble, luckily that second thing gets him out of it! His innate understanding of slug psychology means that all his slugs are as loyal as they come.
There’s one slug who stands out from all the others, Eli’s best slug buddy BURPY. A fire slug with some digestive issues, Burpy was part of Will Shane’s arsenal until he was sent to find Eli right before Will went missing. He’s Eli’s faithful companion, an ultimate fire based weapon and master slug strategist. He also acts as lieutenant to Eli’s army of slug buddies.
The gang has to stay alive and stick together when it comes time to face the dangers of this unpredictable world, or duel against other villainous slugslingers.
Not that easy, especially when the evil master boss DR. BLAKK is watching their every move from the shadows and challenging them at every pass! A powerful slugslinger, Blakk has transformed his slugs through the dark science of ghouling, turning them into ruthless feral shadows of their former sluggy selves.
The owner of the massively powerful Blakk Industries, BLAKK's almost got the world just where he wants it, with his minions crawling all over SLUGTERRA. But he’s far from done. He’s got one goal: ghoul all of the slugs to achieve limitless power! It’s probably safe to say that as bad as Blakk is, these guys are way worse.
But despite his growing power, BLAKK fears one name: SHANE. Eli’s dad Will was the only man who ever beat Blakk in a one-on-one duel (and mysteriously disappeared afterwards)! For now, Blakk isn’t too worried about this upstart kid. But, he is going to keep his eye on the little annoyance and perhaps assign a few trusted minions to deal with the problem while he focuses on his darker goal of ghouling slugs!
ELI hates the fact that BLAKK treats wonderful magical SLUGS in such a terrible way. Despite his youth, he's vowed to do whatever it takes to stop BLAKK—even if he has to go to all 99 caverns to do it!
