- "You caught a worm in a bottle! Fish love these!"
- — In-game description
Worms are creatures from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. They are tiny creatures that make their habitat underground. Link can dig up worms behind the Signs in the Fishing Hole or in pumpkin patches in Ordon Village to use as fishing bait. Using worms, rather than Bee Larvae, as bait is liable to attract less common species of fish, such as Hyrule Bass or juvenile Hylian Loach. If Link kills a Bomskit, a worm will be left behind, which can then be scooped into a bottle. This implies Bomskits feed on worms.
Though worms do not appear as an item in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it is stated in the Hyrule Compendium that Rainbow Pigeons will occasionally prey on Earthworms and insects despite being primarily herbivorous. However earthworms are only mentioned as an unseen subspecies of worm native to Hyrule.
