Hello, has it been confirmed that the Gate is Mega Maw's posthumous version ? He really looks like just a giant Host, the skull turrets found on the Caves and onwards.
Hello again, someone re-added that The Gate is Mega Maw's undead form whereas it is written that he appears to be a giant Host, are those just speculations or anything confirmed ?
We'll leave the Hostz one under trivia as the design matches that of the host quite well. The Mega Maw speculation might come from the fact that both can spawn Leapers, but that's not any proof at all so it was booted out. --Dooomspeaker (talk) 16:05, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
I think it's almost certainly a posthumous version of Mega Maw. It looks similar, it has similar attacks, is is a giant stationary head, and its name is of the same pattern that most other posthumous bosses follow. All other bosses whose names follow the format of "The X" where x is some abstract noun are posthumous versions: The Wretched, The Husk, The Hollow, The Cage, The Bloat, etc. (Except the Haunt.)
The fact that it resembles a giant host is perhaps keeping in line with the fact that the Cage is both the posthumous version of Mega Fatty and also a Giant Vis. --PureQuestion (talk) 02:54, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
