The Writhing Remains is a pet item that can be dropped by Eater of Worlds in Master Mode at a 1/4 (25%) chance. It summons a pet Eater of Worms. It acts similarly to The Deactivated Probe, which is the Master Mode pet of The Destroyer.


  • Despite the tooltip and summoned pet's name, the Eater of Worms interacts with neither the critter nor item form of the Worm.


  • The buff tooltip "May ruin several backyards" could possibly be a reference to worms often digging holes in backyards.
