Piercer (Dungeons & Dragons)

In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, the piercer is a vermin. It resembles almost exactly a stalactite (similar to a Darkmantle), only with eyes in the sides. The Piercer is actually a giant gastropod of which the pointy, stalactite-esque part is its shell. Its tail and other such parts can almost never be seen. Its color ranges from brown, to black, to grey, to green, to blue.
