Lee with the Tatzelwurm in Season 3

This article features the relationship between Lee Ping and The Red Tatzelwurm


In the early episodes the Tazelwurm appeared to be nothing more than a vicious, carnivorous predator. It was often seen attacking students, including Lee, and apparently trying to eat them. However, this was intended mainly to serve as a means to scare them. In reality, the Tazelwurm is highly intelligent, at least comparable to a human level intelligence. Further, he has proven himself a valuable ally to Lee, providing him with vital information about The Prank and saving him from getting caught on several occasions.

Episodes Showing a ConflictEdit

  • Blitzkrieg Bop'd - The Red Tatzelwurm attacked Lee while he was in the air-vents and though Lee was able to blind the creature. It was implied, at the time, that the Tatzelwurm would have killed Lee, although his true motives aren't known.
  • The Theme Team - When Lee brought Vice Principal Victoria into the underground lab in hopes of recruiting her in his fight against Radcircles, the Tatzelwurm attacked her until being chased off by the Cleaners. Though since it's later revealed that Victoria was involved with the Prank conspiracy it can be safe to say that he was acting in Lee's best interests.
  • Revenge of the Cycle Killers - The Tatzelwurm stole the file on Sue Ping from Lee and Biffy and threw it into a bonfire to keep it from both of them.
