  • Shoots a ring of 10 straight blood shots in all directions.
  • Spawns a Leaper.
  • Fires a Brimstone Brimstone

    laser that ends at the bottom of the room and homes in on all leapers in the room, if there are any. This kills the leapers, unless they are off screen.

    laser will also hit the other bosses and enemies it spawns, damaging and possibly even killing them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Upon death, a small Isaac head can be seen poking out of its corpse before it explodes.
    • Two glowing white eyes can be seen in its mouth throughout the fight, which may also be the Isaac head.
  • Despite being a posthumous version of Mega Maw, The Gate physically resembles a giant Host.
