During the Season β20 elections, Wormthrice gained the 2x modification as a result of the Sunbeams' Magnify will. Wormthrice's moxie then increased 1.0 → 2.0 and thwackability increased 4.1 → 4.3 as a result of the Global Guts blessing.
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Phineas Wormthrice is a being composed of yarn, clay, and worms. Eir ability to shift eir form means ey always look different, although ey are recognisable by a few distinctive characteristics — being made of these materials, a jester's hat or bowtie, eir use of plural pronouns and the royal ‘we’, and eir distinctive style of movement. Ey have been described as moving 'like a stop motion animation', in a stuttering, disjointed manner.
It is unknown how Wormthrice ended up in the Shadow Moabbey or why eir time in the Shadows was so shockingly short. Gaining any information on Wormthrice’s existence before the Moabbey is also, seemingly, impossible, though some speculate ey may be some sort of infernal, abyssal, or astral creature. None of these claims are confirmed.
Despite expectations based on eir name, Wormthrice has repeatedly stated that ey have no idea what a worm is. Ey often offer compensation to any individual who can tell em what a worm is, and upon encountering any new item will ask whether it is a worm. Searching for ‘worms’ is how ey often spend eir time between games. Upon questioning the Sunbeams have confirmed that yes, ey have been shown a real worm. This does not appear to have slowed eir quest.
Career With The Sunbeams
Wormthrice has a unique relationship with many members of the team, some of whom may be put off by eir habit of rummaging through the trash, muttering to emself. Ey may be seen assisting Eugenia Bickle in her greenhouse, being thrown long distances by Jayden Wright, or running away from Kaz Fiasco screaming. As charming as Wormthrice’s antics are to fans, ey seemingly incite notable amounts of chaos within the team itself, especially enacting strange responses from Lars Taylor. Taylor has been quoted as saying that star doesn’t like what star sees ‘between eir frames’.
- Wormthrice has been the center of various controversies, mostly due to eir affinity for what ey refer to as “pranks” and others have described as “being incredibly annoying”. These various incidents have been reported by members of the Hellmouth community and beyond, though some have been reported in the following IRM. The IRM randomly chooses one backstory of many written by the Blaseball community when the page is loaded. This time, the Interdimensional Rumor Mill reveals a Rumor from IF-88.766 out of its Rumor Registry...
Wormthrice came into my clothing store and attempted to buy six pairs of pants with only applesauce. When I informed em that this would not suffice, ey just kept giving me more and more applesauce, and eventually coated my store with applesauce. I don’t think Wormthrice even wears pants.
