The Evil Worm is a powerful enemy found in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4. It is associated with the Evil Tail, however, their exact relationship varies between games.

Appearance

The Evil Worm is a large brown worm-like creature. Its skin is marred with bulging veins and boils, the largest of which bear twisted faces of their own. Its round, toothless mouth takes up its entire front. It appears with several grey, spiked chains binding its body, but most are broken off during its intro animation, leaving a few chains forming rings around its body. It also has a few black spines on its body, mainly visible when it attacks players.

Evil Worms made their first appearance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3's final battle, where they were helpers of Akron. When the demonic entity switched to his second form, an Evil Worm would jump out of his mouth and join the fray, along with an Evil Tail.

Evil Worms and Evil Tails appeared in Graybone Cemetery of Epic Battle Fantasy 4 as some of the area's strongest enemies. Their appearance and abilities are largely the same as before, but their connection to Akron was removed, becoming a rare and especially foul species of burrowing cave-dweller. Interestingly, EBF4 also claimed that Evil Tails were not actually the tails of an Evil Worm, but rather chunks of its body that can act independently, similar to the relationship between the Crystal Golem and its Bits.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

  • Syphon → Headbutt (1/2), Double Cannon* (1/2);
  • Berserk → Headbutt;
  • ≥64.5% HP → Headbutt (1/6); Sword Strike (1/6); Double Cannon* (2*/6), Bubble Burp (1/6), Poison Burp (1/6);
  • <64.5% to ≥31.5% HP → Sword Strike (1/6); Double Cannon (1/6), Bubble Burp (1/6), Poison Burp (1/6), Blood Burp (1/6), Oil Burp (1/6);
  • <31.5% HP → Blood Burp.

*The Swallow attack, although it exists, is never used; what could activate it triggers Double Cannon instead. Whether this is intended or not is unclear.
The impact on the gameplay is that Double Cannon gets a double chance to be used during Evil Worm's first third of health, while it would've been an equal chance for all attacks, including Swallow and Double Cannon; Worm's behaviour when Syphoned has also been altered due to that.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Berserk → Blood Burp;
  • ≥65% HP → Headbutt (1/4), Swallow (1/4), Sword Strike (1/4), Double Cannon (1/4);
  • <65% to ≥32% HP → Swallow (1/6), Sword Strike (1/6), Double Cannon (1/6), Poison Burp (1/6), Blood Burp (1/6), Oil Burp (1/6);
  • <32% HP → Sword Strike (1/5), Double Cannon (1/5), Poison Burp (1/5), Blood Burp (1/5), Oil Burp (1/5).

Has a 20% chance to spawn an Evil Tail at the beginning of own turn.

Trivia

  • The Evil Worm and Evil Tail are based on the Sandworm and its tail from Epic Battle Fantasy 2.
  • Evil Worm's entry in the Epic Battle Fantasy 3 Bestiary is marked with a thumbnail that is a recolored version of the Sandworm's overworld sprite. Consequently, the thumbnail shows the Evil Worm with teeth, when the worm itself is toothless.
  • During Akron's death sequence, three Evil Worms emerge from the ground after his second form disintegrates, quickly meeting the same fate as their apparent master. The implications of this are unclear, but given their similar designs, it may be meant to imply that Evil Worms are actually part of Akron himself.
