Tube Worms were added in Booster Pack #4.

Like the Round Worm, the Tube Worm will burrow into the ground and appear somewhere else. Upon popping out of the ground, they will fire a long-ranged arcing spray of shots at Isaac, attempting to intercept Isaac's future position based on his movement. Unlike standard Round Worms, they can fire at Isaac even if they do not have line of sight.

Added in Afterbirth

Like the Round Worm, the Ulcer will burrow into the ground and appear somewhere else. When it surfaces, if Isaac is within its line of sight, it will spawn a Dart Fly, but after spawning 6 of them, it will start firing a blood shot instead. Ulcers burrow underground at a slightly slower rate than most other Worms, usually making them easier to attack.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Nightcrawlers in real life could refer to earthworms, although they don't look similar to the Nightcrawlers from the Binding of Isaac.
  • Added in Afterbirth Ulcers are a reference to ulcers, breaks in bodily membranes caused by sloughing out of inflamed necrotic tissue.
  • Added in Afterbirth † Tube worms are creatures that live underwater and anchor their tails underground, which may be where the Tube Worm from the Binding of Isaac got its name from. However, they don't resemble real life tube worms.
