Worm is one of the Shadow Beasts.
Worm has a pointed head with no hair, eyebrows, or eyelashes. He wears nothing but a pair of small underpants so that he can move more easily underground. His appearance resembles that of a real earthworm.
Yorknew City arcEdit
On September 1st 2000, after the Phantom Troupe kill everyone at the Mafia's underground auction, the Ten Dons send the Shadow Beasts to kill them. Worm, Rabid Dog, Porcupine and Leech engage in battle with Uvogin of the Troupe in the Gordeau Desert first. Worm immediately lands a punch on his face, but Uvogin's body is so tough that all of his right fingers are broken by the reaction force. Uvogin retaliates by punching him in the face, knocking out some of his teeth and his right eyeball. Worm then tries to pull Uvogin into the ground but Uvogin uses his strongest attack--Big Bang Impact--to cause an explosion that leaves a large crater and nearly blows him to pieces. Ironically, Worm is the last of the 4 to die as after Leech, Porcupine and Rabid Dog are killed, he, with a severely damaged body, is seen advising Kurapika not to confront the Phantom Troupe.
Worm's Nen ability allows him to move freely underground. In the manga, his Nen type is unknown. However, in the 1999 anime adaptation he is probably an Enhancer as he states that his physical strength increases dramatically underground.
