The blightcrawler (formerly BoltWorm) is a monster introduced in Dragon Quest VII. It can be found in the Buccanham region in Disc 2, the Nottagen region in Disc 2, and the Adjoining Cave in the Deja region in Disc 2.



Blightcrawlers are more deadly and dangerous relatives of nightcrawlers, being large centipedes with yellow bodies, which are covered in spark and deadly spikes. The tops of their heads and the spikes surrounding their face are brown to help them stay hidden in the ground, and they have light pink munching mandibles. They attack by rolling their bodies up into a circle and leaping at their foes to land on them and crush them. They spew a poisonous breath that envelops foes in venom and spit a sticky webbing that traps prey, ready for mashing with their sharp mandibles.
