The Fuzzy Worm is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It's typically found in the Wild Tropics.


Appearance

The Fuzzy Worm is a caterpillar-like creature with an off-white underbelly and face, blue eyes, and thin black antennae. As its name suggests, its back is covered in yellow-orange fuzz speckled with small red markings. It has a small mouth with one of three random expressions, a straight line, a triangular frown, or a cat-like smile.

Overview

The Fuzzy Worm is a low-tier foe with weak single-target attacks that deal non-elemental damage. It is most notable for its Sting, which has a very high chance to inflict Confuse on the victim. It can also curl up to buff its Magic Defence or whistle to summon another Fuzzy Worm, sometimes accompanied by a Putrid Worm - fortunately, it only uses the latter skill when it is the only foe left in the wave. As weak as it is, it can be rather annoying if left to its own devices; kill it ahead of or alongside other foes to prevent it from summoning reinforcements.

The Fuzzy Worm gets several benefits on higher difficulty levels; its Sting inflicts two Confuse stacks instead of one, its Bite gains a small chance of inflicting Virus, it adds Defend to its Curl up buff, and its Whistle calls up to three foes as backup (two Fuzzy Worms and potentially a Putrid Worm).

The Fuzzy Worm absorbs Thunder, but has no resistance against any of the other elements. It's weak to Earth, Dark, and especially Bio damage; the latter works well with its massive vulnerability to Poison and Virus. It gains an additional Water absorption if "More Foe Resistance" is enabled.
