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

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Fires red tears in disorganized bursts similar to Monstro.
  • Releases 2 rings of colored flames which rotate in a circular pattern and expand outwards, one clockwise and the other counter-clockwise.
  • Releases one large ring of flames that expands outward.
  • Releases one large ring of flames that rotates in either direction and expands outwards.
  • Summons Hoppers.
    • 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[edit | edit source]

  • Added in Afterbirth Black: Spits 1-2 Spiders instead of Hoppers. Does not use flame attacks.
  • Added in Afterbirth Red: Has a completely different set of attacks, including:
    • Fires a ring of 10 blood shots that spiral outward.
    • Fires 4 lines of 4 curving blood shots.
    • Fires 4 lines of 4 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.
  • 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.
