'...Vermin, like men and dogs, are followers. Oftentimes it is the largest, most physically imposing of a pack that becomes leader. But, size is not the only factor, and ultimately not a substitue for a ferocity of spirit. Among the vermin infestation we contend with near the surface, there apparently is a shining such example. Even the most robust vermin of the pack are subservient to this king of theirs, smaller in stature, but by far more cruel. Can a simple beast feel malice? Supposedly, this one can.'
When encountered, King Vermin will always teleport to Zagreus before beginning its attacks.
- Vermin Call: King Vermin, while stationary, roars loudly and summons 3 to 5 Gigantic Vermin to aid in battle.
- Burrow Attack: the Vermin burrows underground and, upon unearthing, releases a damaging pulse near its new position.
- Charged Assault: After a brief charge-up, the Vermin dashes towards and strikes Zagreus three times.
