*TragicMonster: [[spoiler: The VZR-5, as well as a robotic monster using Ziggy's brain as a power source]]


An oft-overlooked little gem from the height of the NES's popularity, ''WURM'' details the exploits of a team of explorers sent to investigate the source of mysterious tectonic activity (not to mention the fate of four previous expeditions that have gone missing). They travel in a tunneling vehicle called the VZR, nicknamed the "WURM" by the manual.

As the team ventures deeper underground they find their predecessors were ambushed by monstrous members of the Nonmalta empire which is fighting the beleaguered kingdom of Dinamur for control of the underworld.

!!''WURM'' provides examples of:

* AerithAndBob: We've got characters like Dan, Allan and Sylvia alongside Moby (a ''female'' character), Locke and Ziggy.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: The "good" subterranean empire, Dinamur, has human-like inhabitants (assuming the royal family is any indication), while the evil empire, Nonmalta, is made up of hideous monsters.
* BeneathTheEarth: The whole game.
* DrillTank: The VZR.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: One of your advisors is the princess of the underground kingdom (after [[DistressedDamsel being rescued from the bad guys, of course]]).
* JigsawPuzzlePlot: The story of the various underground civilizations is revealed a bit at a time, but it's easy to get lost unless you're paying really close attention.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: Throughout the early missions Moby mentions her hopes of finding her boyfriend Ziggy, who went missing along with one of the previous expeditions. She does eventually find him, but it turns out his brain was removed and put in a robotic monster she had to kill.]]
* PowerSource: One of the game's more annoying aspects is that while the VZR automatically repairs damage, if the player doesn't find a steady supply of randomly-appearing fuel crystals they die.
* SendInTheSearchTeam
* TransformingMecha: The VZR can change into a hovercraft or a plane. Although for some reason you need to salvage parts from one of the other VZR's before it can change to plane mode.
