In the Sluggy multiverse, there is an infinite number of alternate realities, referred to as dimensions. These presumably include every possible configuration of affairs, and as such range from slightly different alternate versions of each other to completely bizarre alternate versions of each other and totally unrelated worlds. "Dimensional fluxes" and gateways of different sorts are rare but exist, allowing travel between different realities. The Dimensional Flux Agitator allows creation of these on purpose, though without coordinates it just pokes a hole in reality at random.

The dimension the protagonists usually reside in has been referred to as "The Dimension of Sluggy", "The Dimension of Nifty" and "Sluggy Prime", though no name was ever used for it by Pete. Other known canonical dimensions include the following. (Names that are in quotes do not appear in the comic, even implicitly or unofficially.)

Important DimensionsEdit

These dimensions have long, important story lines associated with them. Often the fate of the dimension is the main topic of one or more story lines, and the interaction of the main characters with the dimensions greatly impact them.

A dimension where demons reign.[1]

Home of 4U City, a place where all people are happy by forced medication.[2]

Where all people are nice, swear-words are blipped out, and beer does not exist.[3]

An anime-like science-fiction universe, where the GOFOTRON robot battle against the evil Zorgons.[4]

Less Important DimensionsEdit

Shorter storylines take place in these dimensions. Usually they do not have a great direct impact on the main characters.

A restaurant version of the Dimension of Pain.[5]

Minor DimensionsEdit

These are the dimensions that are only very briefly mentioned.

Dimensions named in guest strips not confirmed to be canon include

It's also possible to enter another "world" in some sense while presumably staying in the same dimension, such as by being dropped out of time.
