The centipede, s, is a monster in NetHack. It is extremely slow, and not a significant threat despite its poisonous bite. Its corpse is safe to eat and may convey poison resistance.

Encyclopaedia entry

I observed here, what I had often seen before, that certain districts abound in centipedes. Here they have light reddish bodies and blue legs; great myriapedes are seen crawling every where. Although they do no harm, they excite in man a feeling of loathing. Perhaps our appearance produces a similar feeling in the elephant and other large animals. Where they have been much disturbed, they certainly look upon us with great distrust, as the horrid biped that ruins their peace.
