Lady Slimer along with the four Ecto-1 Party Specters had joined Slimer when he acquired the Ecto-1. She appeared in the 2016 movie.

History

Primary Canon

Lady Slimer was Slimer's partner-in-crime as it were, and joined him on his joyride. Slimer drove past the Ghostbusters in front of The Mercado building in the Times Square area. The second time she was seen, she seems to have gotten closer to Slimer. They ended up both going through the portal and the Divide to the World of the Dead as part of the Ghostbusters' plan to blow up the reactors atop Ecto-1's roof rack in order to reverse the polarity of the portal and force all the ghosts back through. Slimer and Lady Slimer were propelled into the air atop the Ecto-1's seat cushions. They exchanged looks and laughed then fell back down into the portal.

During the ghost retrieval mission in the prime dimension, Lady Slimer sat next to Slimer 80-C as he drove a shuttle from the Warehouse to the Firehouse to drop off the Ghostbusters of Dimension 11-W, Ghostbusters of Dimension 68-M, and Ghostbusters of Dimension 68-Q.

Description

While Slimer was an androgynous blob creature with no defining gender characteristics, Lady Slimer is evidently female, with red lipstick and blonde hair with a pink bow tie.
