The Gluttony Worm is a huge worm-like beast that burrows into the landscape of filth. They feast on the souls that are trapped in the circle with them. They rip apart carcasses and corpses that litter the ground. If an unwary victim moves close to its burrow, it instantly rises up and attempts to devour it. It will raise from the ground when Dante lure it out from the dusty area trying to snap him. Failture in button sequence also result in certain death.
The Gorger Worm's main attack is to swipe at the player, which can be countered with proper timing. They possess an unblockable attack which can deal substantial damage and send the player flying if the quick-time-event is failed. Thus, they are most easily dealt with at a distance, evading after two to three Scythe attacks. An alternate strategy is to rely on holy Cross powers to continuously damage them from afar.
- Gorger Worms appear as traps in The Trials of St. Lucia DLC.
- They can often be seen in the background after killing Cerberus, devouring enemies and granting the player souls as they do.
