Scolopendra also known as the Eradicator of Paradise, is a type of demon similar to a huge centipede in appearance. They serves as one of the summons in Bayonetta and as enemies in Bayonetta 2 where it is also confirmed that they are actually a species rather than an unique demon. They are said to live in a river of boiling blood in the depths of Inferno.

Moving unlike anything its size, its deftness allows it to wrap around and constrict its prey in the blink of an eye."
