From Muppet Wiki

Worms are invertebrates with elongated, soft bodies. Though the earthworm is the most common, there are many varieties of worms, who in popular culture often have negative connotations, associated with "creepy crawlies" at worst, or with sour-flavored gummy candies at best. On Sesame Street, however, the worm is a much loved and vital species with an elaborate culture and society of its own.

Worms have appeared on Sesame Street as early as the first episode, in an animated segment to demonstrate the letter W. Early segments of this often referred to the worm as "yucky," feeding to the popular prejudice, and raising concerns from one conservationist. [1]

For the most part, however, worms are presented in a very positive light, mostly in the person of Slimey the Worm, pet of Oscar the Grouch. Slimey is beloved by Oscar, well-liked by other residents, and proved popular with viewers; in a 1971 pet show episode, tests showed that children "were attentive, responsive, and loved Slimey the Worm." Later, Slimey's family was introduced, including baby sister Sloppy, parents Dusty and Eartha, and cousins Squirmy and Rachel.

Other Grouches also have close relationships with worms. Grungetta has Sylvia, and the participants in the Worm Summer Games each had their own Grouch trainer.

Not unlike the Twiddlebugs, worms have their own community, culture, and organizations, established through the labor of the worms themselves. They establish their own mass transit system in the form of a worm subway (Episode 3164) and band together to build a playground (Episode 3957). In addition, Slimey is a member of the Worm Scouts, a scouting troop, and all worms enjoy the annual Wormy Gras festival, the annelids' answer to Mardi Gras, and an ode to the joys of worminess.

The worms also benefit from more elaborate organizations and events, many of which which are open to worms across the globe, not just those in and around Sesame Street, which were explored in detail in multiple episodes. The worms have their own version of the Olympic Games, the Worm Games, held in both summer (Episode 3300) and winter. To prove that it's not all fun and games for worms, WASA, the Worm Air Space Organization, furthers space exploration and scientific discovery through the use of manned worm missions; the progress of one international team of worms (including Slimey) was tracked through much of Season 29. As demonstrated in Worms in Space segments, the crew took time from their mission for educational pursuits, forming letters with their bodies.

On The Muppet Show, two slightly different inchworms were featured during Charles Aznavour and Danny Kaye's versions of the song "The Inch Worm." Two striped worms more similar to those seen on Sesame Street appeared in the Inchworm sketch on Muppet Show episode 204.

Abyss Worm artwork from Final Fantasy II by Yoshitaka Amano.

The Worm (ウォーム Wōmu) is a recurring species of enemy in the Final Fantasy series. They are usually shown as obese enemies with no features except a circular mouth. There are two common representations of the worms: sometimes they ascend from the ground and other times they are completely above ground depending on the game rather than the type. Most appearances of worms include many different variations.

One common type of worm is the Sand Worm (サンドウォーム Sandowōmu) which are most commonly a yellow or orange colored worm. Like most worms, they are commonly of the Earth element and are occasionally weak against the Water element. The creature is very likely to have been inspired by the sandworms from the novel Dune. Other variations include the Abyss Worm and Land Worm.

A typical Worm.

Worms resemble ocean going tube worms more than the garden variety, albeit ones that are taller than a human and have three huge teeth at the end of their maw. They seem to be much smaller cousins to the giant wurms found in the latter parts of the game.

The main difference between these and Wurms is that Wurms are much larger and will attack without provocation, whereas Worms are much smaller and will usually only attack if provoked.

"You worms are no match for the dark side!"
Darth Maul

Worms were soft-bodied invertebrates found on numerous worlds, including Dagobah, Ansion, and Naboo. Some species were scavengers.

Worms was also a title that Darth Maul sometimes used to taunt his opponents when he believed they were lesser beings than himself, therefore deserving to be associated with worms. The Jedi Exile was also known to have called her opponents worms on occasion. Just prior to the Skirmish at Carkoon, Han Solo insulted Jabba the Hutt by calling him a "slimy piece of worm-ridden filth".

Lt. Bella of Sabaoth Squadron was known to call her forces "Incompetant worms" for failure such as when her forces failed to capture parts for an Orbital Defense Cannon.

It was also a common expression to be "as dirty and happy as a worm".

Lists

Worms are a series of monsters identified by having 「ワーム」 ("Worm") in their Japanese names.

A subclass of "Worm" monsters, which are all Reptile-Type monsters are included in the Duel Terminals.

Apart from the Reptile-Type "Worm" monsters, Worms are usually Insect-Type and have effects that Mill the opponent's Deck. These kind of Worms are used by Shadow Drone Trudge in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.

Reptile-Type Worms

These Worms are a series of LIGHT Attribute Reptile-Type monsters, which focus heavily upon Flip Effects. Visually, they resemble hideous alien creatures of a predominant single color, and often possess lipless toothy vertical mouths. They were introduced in Duel Terminal - Synchro Awakening!! and have their own set, Duel Terminal - Invasion of Worms!.

The name of each Worm begins with a different letter of the alphabet, including all letters from A to Z.

Callisto uses this Worm series in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Stardust Accelerator. However, this Archetype has debuted in the Booster Pack, "Hidden Arsenal".

Worms are mostly composed of Flip Monster Effects that generate Hand Advantage by allowing the user to draw extra cards or add extra cards to their hand, or create Field Advantage by allowing the user to control the positions of cards and permitting cards on either side of the field to stay or not. The non-Flip Effect Monsters allow the user to control the position of monsters on the field and flip your own monsters face-down, or have their effects activated when cards are Set face-down in general.

As implied by the card text of Ally Mind, they have some connection to the Allies of Justice. They are likely enemies, as the Allies of Justice have effects related to the destruction of LIGHT monsters and face-down Monster cards (such as Flip Effect monsters).

"Worm Drake" is a Reptile-Type monster with 「ワーム」 in its Japanese name so it applies for some of the Worm support.

Support Cards

Worms are perhaps the largest Archetype (in terms of number of members) that have no non-Monster support cards. In order to get the most out of a Worm-based deck, cards that support LIGHT monsters and protect weak monsters from destruction during battle (like "Waboku" and "Threatening Roar") are handy. "Hieracosphinx" will protect your face-down Worms from your opponent's attacks. Cards that control the position of other cards on the field, such as "Book of Moon," "Book of Taiyou", "Book of Eclipse", "Desertapir" and "Desert Sunlight" are excellent for manipulating the opponent as well as early-triggering or re-using of your own Flip Effects. Using "Shifting Shadows" when your Worms are flipped face-down after being flipped face up is a great way to confuse your opponent. The card "The Shallow Grave," which revives a monster in face-down Defense Position, is an efficient way to re-use a Flip-Effect card, and "Night Assailant" can recycle one if sent to the Graveyard from the Hand. Since all Worms are LIGHT, a few copies of "Honest" can allow you to spring a nasty surprise on an opponent who tries to battle your weaker Worms. "Offering to the Snake Deity" can be used to destroy up to two of your opponent's cards at the cost of one of your Worms, as well. Since all Worms are Reptiles, you can also make use of Solidarity (though you won't be able to use non-Reptile support cards like Honest).
