It shows the evolution of the characters
In the magical world of That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, monsters usually do not have names. Unaware of the reason behind it, Rimuru proceeded to name the goblins and wolves he encountered in his journey. When he passed out for three days, he realized it was because a huge amount of magicules (a type of magic fuel) inside him were consumed in the process of naming the creatures. He also realized that naming a monster evolves them into a stronger version.
However, the monsters he named pledged allegiance to serve him as their master. Later, Rimuru named many other monsters he encountered who later vowed to serve him even though he didn't force it. Eventually, Rimuru gained many followers, which led him to build his own nation.
It shows Rimuru's Predation skill
Predation is basically Rimuru's ability to consume anything. Rimuru realized that he gained the power of everything he ate or absorbed, be it a whole monster or an attack. When he absorbs an attack, he can modify and improve it. That way, he remains stronger than his enemies. In the Orc Lord arc, he consumed a whole monster since there was no other way to finish it off. This skill serves as a great advantage and is considered to be one of the most powerful skills Rimuru possesses in That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime.
It shows Rimuru's shapeshifting power
Besides simply gaining the power of whatever he consumed or absorbed, Rimuru could also shapeshift into the creature he ate. After he consumed Shizu on her dying request, he was able to shapeshift into a human with a gender fluid body. This shapeshifting power helped him fight his rivals and also make comrades along the way. And since he was originally a slime with mysterious powers, he could consume just about anything.
That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime shows the growth of a nation
Rimuru started off by building the Goblin village. Eventually, he, the goblins and the wolves set out on a journey to different nations in search of materials. Through this, Rimuru found new comrades who decided to help him build the nation. As he started getting new followers, he expanded the area of the village, and that's how a huge nation was built.
The whole process shows how he created an alliance with other nations, the exchange of trade and also how they helped each other fight their enemies. The process is really interesting because it involves a lot of action and comedy scenes.
That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime promotes diversity
It didn't matter which clan a monster belonged to, as long as they were willing to be loyal, they were warmly welcomed into Rimuru's nation.
