The Poison Worm is an enemy in the Castlevania series. They are enormous worms, poisonous to the touch.


Castlevania: Circle of the MoonEdit

Poison Worms in Circle of the Moon are different from those found in other games. They hang from the ceiling in entangled masses, similar to the Viper Swarms found in Super Castlevania IV. Occasionally, one of the worms will detach from this mass and fall and crawl to the ground. These worms will poison Nathan if he touches them. They can easily be whipped while they are still falling. Otherwise, simply sliding will crush them while they are crawling on the ground, or the Axe sub-weapon can also be used to remove the mass from the ceiling.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

Poison Worm is no longer suspended from the ceiling and instead slowly crawls on the ground towards Soma, even if the latter is behind him, in which case he will crawl backwards. However, he can still poison on contact.

His looks is a palette swap of the Giant Worm from the same game.

His soul, Resist-Poison, grants immunity to the Poison status.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

This time, the Poison Worm appears only once in the entire game.

After entering the painting Forgotten City, Jonathan and Charlotte arrive to a big mound of sand. While stepping on it, the ground suddenly splits apart and a giant Poison Worm emerges from the center of what now is clearly revealed to be a sand trap dragging the heroes toward the monster. Once defeated, the worm contorts violently in a shower of blood. If the heroes let themselves get swallowed by the now vacant sand trap, they'll be able to entering in the Forgotten City.

Again, he is a palette swap of the Sand Worm from the same game.
