Abyss Worm is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII fought in the desert regions. When first encountered, it appears as a creature's head protruding from the ground—complete with its mound—flailing around with small flaps on its sides. After removing a certain amount of its HP, the Abyss Worm will crawl out to show its segmented body.



The Abyss Worm uses both physical and magical attacks. It is weak to Water and Wind attacks. Like many other monsters, Abyss Worm has the spells it is weak against as draw spells.


Players can avoid its Sand Shake by casting Float on the party, or by junctioning Quake to Elemental Defense so that the damage replenishes HP. One can try drawing and using Tornado.

Use of Triple in conjunction with the Water spell can deal large amounts of damage at any level. Abyss Worm is a good enemy to draw Tornados from as it is a good spell to raise stats with.
