The nickelpede is a monster that appears in SLASH'EM. It is the "big brother" of the centipede. They are not poisonous to eat but have a high chance of conferring poison resistance.


The nickelpede is a reference to the Xanth novels, and is a pun based on a play off the words "cent" and "centipede". In Xanth, they are described as "five times as bad as centipedes, gouging out nickel-sized disks of flesh".[1].
