From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Blightcrawler is a monster that appears exclusively in Dragon Quest VII.


Blightcrawlers are more deadly and dangerous relatives of nightcrawlers, being large centipedes with yellow bodies, which are covered in sharp 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.
