A Maggot is a type of monster in the game. As their name suggests, they're blind, white insect maggots that lack any appendages. They crawl around the room slowly and aimlessly. They can also be found wandering about within libraries.
Variations[edit | edit source]
Charger[edit | edit source]
Chargers are a more advanced form of Maggot. They possess a smiling face of sorts and look quite harmless as they slowly crawl along without attempting to follow Isaac. If a Charger lines up with Isaac vertically or horizontally, however, they will immediately and quickly charge in a straight line towards him. Because they're usually encountered in groups, avoiding them quickly becomes a problem.
Drowned Charger[edit | edit source]
Drowned Chargers possess the same behavior of regular Chargers but have 10% more health. They shoot four diagonal blood shots upon death. They can be spawned by Drowned Boom Flies upon death, as well as by Drowned Hives.
Dank Charger[edit | edit source]
Added in Booster Pack #5, Dank Chargers behave similarly to regular Chargers, but have a much faster dash, bounce off of walls while dashing, and leave a trail of slowing Black Creep while dashing. When their charge ends, they have a short cooldown period before they start moving again.
Spitty[edit | edit source]
Spitties are much fatter than other maggot forms, possess a face like Chargers, but have only half health of a Charger. Instead of charging the player in their line of sight, they spit a blood shot ahead of them while slowly crawling along. They have a slow firing rate, and because they ignore Isaac, their shots are easy to avoid. Oddly enough, they do one full heart of contact damage, despite Chargers and even Conjoined Spitties doing half heart damage.
Conjoined Spitty[edit | edit source]
Conjoined Spitties are very similar to Spitties, but they have 80% more health and have 2 heads, 1 added on the back of its body, so they shoot forward and backward simultaneously.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Chargers are based on Ropes from the Legend of Zelda franchise, since both charge at the player when they are in their sight.
- The behavior of the Dank Charger resembles that of the Charger from "The End is Nigh", another game made by Edmund McMillen.
- Oddly enough, in the original Binding of Isaac, Spitties were misspelled as "spities" in the ending credits.
