Behavior[edit | edit source]
Polycephalus will burrow underground when Isaac is not within reach. While burrowed (and invisible), when Polycephalus and Isaac are closer together, it will pop out and perform one of the following attacks:
- He may spray out a cluster of shots towards the player, similar to Monstro.
- He may fire a spread-shot of three bullets at the player.
- He may shoot out eight bullets in all directions.
- He may summon a Round Worm.
Champion Versions [edit | edit source]
- Red: Summons Para-Bites instead of Round Worms. All blood shot attacks are replaced with a ring of six blood shots.
- Pink: Two Polycephaluses, each with 50% HP (100), replace the normal Polycephalus. They do not spawn Round Worms.
