Ants were hostile insects who lived in the Ant Caves in the Enchanted Earth. A few also appeared inside the witches' coven in Cemetery Hill as a part of lost soul Chen the Enchantress' quest. The Enchanted Earth ants were subservient to the Ant Queen.


MediEvil (1998 original)

Official Strategy Guide entry

The Ants are everywhere and will try and either sting you with their pinchers, or shoot venom from their tails. Smash the little pests to a pulp with your War Hammer – any chance you get![1]

MediEvil (2019 remake)

Book of Gallowmere entry

Fascinating creatures, ants. Did you know they're as old as the dinosaurs? That they "talk" using chemicals? Or that they share a hive mind?

And, contrary to popular belief, they actually have no interest whatsoever in your pants.

Behind the scenes


The role of the ants was inspired by Xenomorphs, the fictional endoparasitoid extraterrestrial species from the Alien film series.[2]
