Boss Boss

The Cage is a boss found in The Depths The Depths, and is the posthumous version of Mega Fatty. It appears to have lost its head, has an autopsy stitch, and has a pale greenish color. It has the highest health of any boss fought before Mom's Heart.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • It will jump up in the air and attempt to land on Isaac, similar to Mega Fatty.
    • When it lands, it will spawn damaging Grey Creep and send out 5 lines of rock waves that slightly home in.
  • It will send Projectiles in a spiral in six directions, similar to Mom's Heart/It Lives.
  • It will curl up in a ball and roll towards Isaac, bouncing off the walls around the room.
  • It will spawn a Grey-coloured Vis that shoots a Brown-coloured Brimstone Brimstone laser to support itself in battle. The different colours are purely cosmetic, and it behaves exactly like a normal Vis.

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

  • Added in Afterbirth Green: The Cage periodically leaves puddles of Green Creep and doesn't spawn any Vis.
  • Added in Afterbirth Pink: Two Cages, each with 50% HP (400), replace the normal Cage. Never jumps on the player.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The rocks that spike out of the ground after The Cage's jump attack are considered the same as explosions gamewise. This means that Pyromaniac Pyromaniac will heal Isaac if he gets hit by the rocks.
  • When The Cage jumps, there is a delay on him falling, causing Isaac to be hurt before the Cage falls back down.
  • If Isaac is flying on Pits, The Cage can hit Isaac if he jumps towards him, and he will then be pushed back to the ground.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although the Cage is a dead version of Mega Fatty, it also bears a lot of resemblances to a giant Vis as well, since it is a fat headless body with a giant cut in its belly. Another slight nod to their resemblance is also the Cage's ability to spawn Vis with a Grey color palette and a Brown Brimstone Brimstone laser.
  • The stitches on the Cage's body resemble Y-shaped incisions commonly made at the start of an autopsy.
  • Despite being a possible encounter before Mom, The Cage has more HP than her.
