Dragon Centipedes (also shortened to just Centipedes) are a boss enemy in Global Defence Force, and also appear in the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita versions of the game. So far, they are exclusive to versions of this game, and have no equivalent in later ones.
In smaller clusters, they are instead known as Dragon Worms. However, both types act the same: Each segment charges up and then launches a mortar-like spray of acid that travels upwards and then down in an arc towards wherever their target was standing before launch. When struck, they will sail into the air and seemingly glide back to the ground. EDF Intel advises not utilizing explosive weaponry against a Centipede, as it will separate them into smaller Dragon Worm clusters, which will leave the soldiers to focus on multiple targets at once all firing their acid.
It also has a powerful ability to destroy the framerate.
