The Gluttony Worm was a huge worm-like beast that burrowed into the landscape of filth. They feasted on the souls that are trapped in the circle with them. They ripped carcasses apart and corpses that littered the ground. If an unwary victim moved close to it's burrow, it instantly rose up and attempted to devour it. It would raise from the ground when Dante lured it out from the dusty area trying to snap him. Failure in the button sequence also resulted in certain death.
The Gorger Worm's main attack was to swipe at the player which could be countered with proper timing. They possessed an unblockable attack which could deal substantial damage and send the player flying if the quick-time-event was failed. Thus, they are most easily dealt with at a distance, evading after two to three Scythe attacks. An alternate strategy was to rely on the holy Cross powers to continuously damage them from afar.
- Gorger Worms appeared as traps in The Trials of St. Lucia DLC.
- They could often be seen in the background after killing Cerberus, devouring enemies and granting the player souls as they did.
