Vile Maggots are an enemy in Dark Souls.


They are encountered in Quelaag's Domain and the Demon Ruins.


These abnormally large larvae are only encountered when an Egg Burdened is killed. When this happens, five will escape the egg casings and are immediately aggro'd by the player. They lunge at their opponent and have a short ranged spray attack.
