NAME ORIGIN
    Ankhegs are giant, segmented insects from the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game.
    In the original NES release, Ankhegs were called Pedes, shortened from Centipede which is the name given in Final Fantasy Origins. A centipede is a long, flat, predatory insect of the class Chilopoda with many segmented body sections and legs. The name comes from the Latin centipeda meaning "hundred footed".
