The Voracious Centipede was the commander of all insect forces in the Wonderland Woods. The Caterpillar sent Alice to the Centipede's Sanctum in order to take a bite from the mushroom he was guarding, which was the key to restoring Alice to her original size.
American McGee's Alice Edit
Alice soared into the Centipede's Sanctum after being pushed through a nutcracker's mouth doorway by the Army Ants and upon arriving made no conversation with the Centipede as he was already on target to kill her. He spewed Small Spiders onto Alice and attempted to crush her within seconds of her reaching the arena. She came out as champion during the battle and was able to reach the Mushroom of Life, returning her to her normal size.
The Centipede is a gigantic, apathetic brute with a wound on his underside. He adopts the appearance of a soldier of the German military due to the Pickelhaube he wears. He has thick armor and the ability to summon smaller, multi-legged insects known as Small spiders which can leap onto Alice's back and suck out her blood.
During the final battle with the Queen of Hearts, the Centipede's head becomes a part of one of the Queen's tentacles, and it spits poison. In concept art, he has a tongue resembling an octopus tentacle, a possible nod to the Queen.
Similar to the Queen of Hearts, the Centipede is a dictating character, not allowing anyone near his precious Mushroom of Life. He is loud by nature, complimenting his large stature, and is very ruthless upon Alice's arrival. He does not address Alice using her name, implying he doesn't know who she is and that possibly he doesn't care; only wishing to protect his mushroom.
Counter the centipede's little insect attack with the Ice Wand, which freezes the little insects in a matter of picoseconds. The little insects produce meta essence, which will keep the Ice Wand almost always completely charged with strength of will.
As soon as the insects aren't a concern, Alice can turn her attention to the centipede itself. The centipede's weak spot can be found underneath its belly - locate the red spot when the centipede rises up on its hind legs. Attack this red spot with the Ice Wand (or any weapon); it takes several successful blasts to take down the centipede.
The Centipede is strong himself. He will also spray acid as well as ram Alice with his helmet's horn. He will also bite down on Alice which can do a lot of damage.
