The Giant Sandworm (official name unknown) is a minor enemy found in the exclusive extra stage added to the PC Engine port of Strider, Oil Fields.


The giant sandworm is a creature which appears during the Oil Fields' initial desert area. The sandworm moves through the sand at a quick pace, burrowing in and out as it dashes across the ground trying to hit Hiryu by direct contact.

There are a total of two sandworms encountered, and they are easily dispatched by hitting them or even by simply jumping over them.
