Elder Centipede (ムカデ長老, Mukade chōrō) is a monster that appears in S-City and fights Metal Bat. He is one of the Monster Association's most powerful members and has one of the best durability in the series.
Elder Centipede, in contrast to his two counterparts, is far more monster-like, sporting a jet black armor covering his body. Its main head is heavily reminiscent of one of it's heads and seems to be contained inside other two heads. Its secondary head has four glowing eyes, antennae and extremely sharp teeth. It is immense in size, dwarfing many humans and coming close to the size of a city.
