Slamworm is the Nemetrix's DNA sample of an unnamed species from the planet Terraexcava.

Slamworm's species is the predatory species of Talpaedans.


Slamworm is a giant worm-like alien with sharp teeth, a wide beak-like mouth, and a tail ending in a pincer like set of spikes. Slamworm possesses a lavender and orange hide, a white underbelly, grey spikes running down her back, and four red insectoid legs on each side near the front.

As with all of Zed's transformations, Slamworm wears a red spiked collar with the Nemetrix on it.

Powers and Abilities

New criature of the Nemetrix (3)

Slamworm shooting acid.

Like the Talpaedans it feeds on, Slamworm is a skilled burrower, able to tunnel through almost any surface at remarkable speed.

Slamworm can spit balls of acid from her mouth at a rapid pace.


The inside of Slamworm's mouth is sensitive to damage, as shown when Diamondhead and Armodrillo attacked the inside of his mouth to escape his attack.




  • Slamworm first appeared in It Was Them.
    • Slamworm attacked Ben outside of the Burger Shack. Her tunnelling ability confused Diamondhead, and she managed to get him in a rather helpless position. Diamondhead managed to escape and trap her, at which point Khyber then recalled Slamworm.
  • In Of Predators and Prey: Part 1:
    • When Ben became Armodrillo to battle Mucilator, Khyber's pet transformed into Slamworm to counterattack, sending the Talpaedan flying through the air.
  • In Of Predators and Prey: Part 2:
    • Crabdozer turned into Slamworm to battle Armodrillo.
  • In Outbreak:
    • When the Nemetrix started malfunctioning, Zed turned into Slamworm and attacked Khyber.
  • In Malefactor:
    • Crabdozer turned into Slamworm to battle Armodrillo. She battled Armodrillo until he turned into Big Chill, at which point Slamworm transformed into Hypnotick.

Khyber's Panuncian

  • In A Fistful of Brains:
    • One of the Panuncian's clones used its Nemetrix to transform into Slamworm after the Panuncian cornered Ben.
