Durmite is a female caterpillar-like boss in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.


Durmite is a caterpillar-like character. Half of her body segments are bluish-green, while her bottom side of her body are magenta. She wears a pink ribbon on her head to know others that she is female. Her legs are incredibly tiny and they are magenta-pink. Her head is yellow and her back is yellow circle. She has malicious eyes and she has greenish-blue teal head.


She appeared in Bowser's body when Bowser finished eating Wiggler's giga-carrot. When Bowser got the Banzai Bill and attempted to escape from the garden, he first heard a pain coming from his stomach which caused him to stop saying proper words e.g. when he got pain, he said "YOWCH!" or "OWW OWW!". Mario, Luigi and Starlow began to investigate what caused sharp pain. They find out that Durmite was the cause for Bowsers pain and fight her in the Nerve Cluster.

Durmite appears later in the game as Wisdurm.


In battle she attempts to eat her allies called Biffidus to make her fierce, strong and huge. When the bros. fight her, she has almost 350 HP. If she is getting weaker or her HP decreases, she will use her straw to suck and drink nutrients which takes Bowser's HP away, unless the straw is defeated quickly after it appears.

Durmite uses variety of attacks:

  • One of her attacks means she will get angry, turn red like Wiggler does and she will attempt to ram at the bros. The plumber need to protect himself by using a hammer for a defense, which will also hurt Durmite's head.
  • Her second attack means she will have white web-like tongue sticking out of her mouth similar to Scutlet's red tongue. But when you land on her tongue, she will eat the victim then she spit him out.
  • Another attack means she will summon her ally, Biffidus. She will attempt to eat them and then she will spit the poisonous spear at your player. Press A button to avoid getting poisoned.
