Mega Maw is a new boss in Rebirth found in The Caves The Caves. As its name implies, it is the boss version of the Maws.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Fires Red bullets in disorganized bursts similar to Monstro.
  • Releases 2 rings of 5 colored flames which rotate in a circular patterns and expand outwards, one clockwise and the other counter-clockwise.
  • Releases one large ring of 10 flames that expands outwards.
  • Releases one large ring of 10 flames that rotates in either direction and expands outwards.
  • Summons Hoppers below him.
    • It can spawn only one Hopper at a time.
    • The spawning animation is a few seconds long, during which Mega Maw is left vulnerable.

Champion Versions Needs to be unlocked[edit | edit source]

  • Added in Afterbirth Black: Spits 1-2 Spiders instead of Hoppers. The Spiders will be tossed directly towards the player instead of landing below Mega Maw. He does not use flame attacks.
  • Added in Afterbirth Red: Has a completely different set of attacks, including:
    • Fires a ring of 9 blood shots that spiral outward.
    • Fires 4 lines of 4 curving blood shots.
    • Fires 4 lines of 7 waving blood shots.
    • Fires 10 lines of 4 blood shots in all directions.
    • All the attacks of the Red version do 1 heart of damage.

Tips[edit | edit source]

The flame attack that Mega Maw does can easily be dodged by standing to the back of the room and traveling in the opposite direction of the flames, as there is some space between the rotating flames to acclimate for dodging.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Gate is the posthumous version of it.
  • Before its fire attack, a purple flame can be seen emanating from its forehead.
  • Despite its name, it acts and looks more like a Horf (or a Psychic Horf) than a Maw, because it does not move and its eyes are more round.
  • Its fire attack could be a reference to Mega Man's leaf shield/attack.
