The Worm is a minor character that appears in Donkey Kong 64.
The Worm lives in a large apple in Fungi Forest in the area with the monstrous Tomatoes. He asks Chunky Kong to first get rid of them somehow. The only way for Chunky to defeat the Tomatoes is to transform into Hunky Chunky and squish the Tomatoes with a Simian Slam. After all of the Tomatoes are defeated, the Worm will then ask Chunky to move him to a safer place which is a spot in the first area of Fungi Forest. Chunky must carry the apple as Hunky Chunky as well and place him on the green spot in the dirt patch. The Worm will be pleased at his new home and rewards Chunky with a Golden Banana.
