Red worm is a type of monster in ADOM. Like other worms they breed rapidly, meaning that if the PC leaves even one worm untouched on a dungeon level for too long (especially whilst resting to regain HP) an army of red worms will start growing exponentially in size. They are creatures of fire, meaning that they resist fire attacks but are highly vulnerable to cold. They also have a fire breath attack; this is not very powerful though, and being breathed on by a barrage of red worms is more likely to cause concerns for the PC's equipment rather than their health.

This large worm has almost dry-looking, chitinous skin. Waves of heat rise from it, and the eggs that it lays emit faint wisps of steam.
