|"Are you lost too? I've been lost for as long as I can remember."|
Given what is shown in renders and the cameos found in the proper release of the game, Sandworm would be a typical large worm with a light tan body with several orange spikes across its segments, as well as four larger "pincers" at the top of its head surrounding its mouth.
All around Sandworm is various hats, clothing and items hung or pierced through with its external spikes, along with a sign on the top of its head reading "Sale Sale Sale".
Given that it was never implemented in the game proper, assumptions around its role points to it serving the role of a merchant who would often appear throughout Sand n' Sails and bug Hat Kid to buy his merchandise. What he sold is unknown.
This could be a hold-over of the typical merchant character found throughout the various Chapters before the Badge Seller was conceptualized and created.
Though being cut from the game, the Sandworm still makes several cameo appearances through the final release of A Hat in Time. The first appearance is as a toy in the toy box in Hat Kid's bedroom, which also houses a great many other cut character models.
- The Sandworm seemingly shares his voice with the Arctic Cruise NPC, the Fish Dude.
- One of the hats on the Sandworm's model bears a striking resemblance to a hat worn by the character Robert E. O. Speedwagon.
