Abyssal worm is a character in Might & Magic: Heroes VI.


Avatar of Ur-Vomoch, the Overlord of Voracity, the Abyssal Worm is a gigantic worm whose soft body is protected by heavy, toothed rings. Its mouth is encircled by horns which speed its passage though the semi-molten rocks of Sheogh. Gluttonous and insatiable, the Abyssal Worm feeds on the dying screams of the victims offered to it in sacrifice, or in the enemies unlucky enough to face it on the battlefield. And it can gorge itself endlessly.OffBck

The abyssal worm is a giant demonic worm that feeds on the power of blood crystals.
