Deathworms (デスワーム Desuwāmu) are creatures living in underground and come out for hunting any living species.
During her final battle against the Kyurangers on planet Southern Cross in the Minami Juuji System, Mecha Madakko summoned a Deathworm to back her up against Kyutamajin. Attempting to constrict the Kyurangers, the Deathworm was quickly repulsed by Kyutamas before being strafed alongside Mecha Madakko by the Orion Voyager, proceeding to engage Kyutamajin as Mecha Madakko fought the Orion Battler. Ultimately, the Deathworm was worn down by Kyutamajin's Meteor Booster before being destroyed alongside Mecha Madakko by the Orion Big Bang Cannon.
