The Gulp Worm was bio-weapon species created from manipulating earthworm DNA with the t-Virus.
The Gulp Worm was created by the administration of the t-Virus as part of a bio-weapons experiment to improve the earthworm genome.[excerpt 1] The series was still in the prototype stages during the Rockfort Island Incident, and the only known sample was used as a practice opponent for Rockfort Island's Anti-B.O.W. trainees.
It was encountered twice at the Umbrella Corporation's prison facility on Rockfort Island. The first time it was encountered, it attacked Claire Redfield while she was exploring the military training field. Later, it was killed by Chris Redfield soon after it swallowed Rodrigo Juan Raval whole. As it died, it spat Rodrigo out.
It hunts through the use of its highly sensitive exterior, by feeling vibrations emitted through sound and during movement. If it senses prey, the Gulp Worm will launch its considerable mass towards its target, generally knocking it to the ground, or consuming it whole.
In Resident Evil CODE:Veronica, the Gulp Worm never actually has to be fought. Claire can run past it in the Training Facility courtyard, as killing the Gulp Worm doesn't have any special reward; Chris can choose to run straight for the elevator and skip the Gulp Worm battle, but killing the Gulp Worm as Chris will get you the lighter, which in turn lets you access the Sub-machine guns.
- The Gulp Worm re-appeared in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. It was sent by Alfred Ashford to kill Claire Redfield and Steve Burnside. After a boss battle however, the worm was killed by Claire and Steve.
