The Old Woman (sometimes Old Lady) is a effectively a walking dynamite, having a five-second fuse, a heavy friction and exploding with about the same power. The Old Woman walks relatively slowly (2 pixels per 3 frames) and does not jump.

While in every appearance from Worms 2 onwards the Old Woman walks off muttering quietly to herself, she only says one very clear audible line in WormsDC - "I can't remember his name."

During the development of WormsDC a preview in CU Amiga Magazine suggested that the Old Woman would become "confused", forgetting where she was going and so turn around and head back to the worm who deployed it. This never made it into the retail release of the game.

Tactics

Old Woman can be used to collect crates.

Trivia

If a weapons crate holds the contents of an Old Woman, her muttering can be heard from that crate if it's destroyed.
