Slider is a skill that can be given to a lemming in Lemmings 2: The Tribes. When a Slider reaches the end of a platform, it will hold on and slide down the wall. The lemming can survive a slide from any height, and as such this skill works as a substitute for the Floater in some situations. If the wall ends on solid ground, the lemming will continue in the direction it was originally facing. If the wall ends in an overhang, the Slider will briefly hang from the corner, having turned around, before falling. During this time, Shimmier can be assigned to the lemming to make it continue across the ceiling. A Slider will also slide down a wall that ends a shimmy. A lemming that is both a Slider and a Runner will slide down when it reaches an edge, rather than jumping as Runners normally do. The Slider is a permanent skill - once assigned to a lemming, it has that skill for the rest of the level.
