The glaive wurm, or glave wurm, is a semi-sentient parasite utilized by mutalisks. Mutalisks attack by firing the parasites with great force. The parasites may bounce off and strike multiple targets while disintegrating explosively.
The glaive wurms are launched from a mutalisk's modified ovipositor. They trace their origins to the glave parasite, which bonded with the mantis screamers prior to their assimilation by the zerg.
