Trump Card[]


These particular Wrigglers resemble black, caterpillar-like insects that are primarily used when activating the Wrigglers’ Trump Card, the Caterpillars will spit long strands of silk-like material onto its users that would then encase them into a cocoon-like wrapping that would then literately rebuild their bodies from the ground up into a powerful human/butterfly hybrid form. Due to being "rebuilt", the wounds inflicted by weapons such as the Shingu,Kiriichimonji that creates wounds that cannot heal is rendered useless, as instead of healing the users body is instead rebuilt,which then gives the user access to a variety of insect-based abilities as displayed by Merraid Oarburgh who obtained the ability to fly using her butterfly wings,transform her arms into a insect-themed blades, shoot sticky silk threads from her fingertips and release dust like scales that impede and weaken her opponents eyesight.
