Dire Wraiths are a malevolent, parasitic alien race from the Marvel Universe and enemies of various heroes, most prominently Rom the Space Knight, they are shape-shifters with an especially nasty adaptation that allows them to suck the brains out of victims using modified "tongues", though female Dire Wraiths often do this male Dire Wraiths find the process repugnant.

Regardless of the division between males and females on brain-feeding Dire Wraiths seem united in being malicious conquerors and a threat to non-Wraith life in the MU (Marvel Universe).

Dire Wraiths were originally Skrulls but mutated due to dark magic - so far they have a matriarchial society revolving around Volx, their Queen.
