NAME ORIGIN
    Lava is the molten, fluid rock that is spewn forth from a volcanic eruption. The word comes from Italian and means "a stream caused suddenly by rain", however the Neapolitans living near the volcano Mount Vesuvius applied that word to the streams of molten rock boiling down the sides of the volcano. A worm is a long, soft, legless invertebrate. The word comes from the Old English wyrm, meaning "dragon, serpent, worm".
    In the original NES release of Final Fantasy, the Lava Worm's name was Grey W, short for Grey Worm. The color of the worm's sprite, however was green. The reason for this change is unknown, but may stem from a translation error.
