The Matriarch is a new boss added in Booster Pack #5 that can appear in all environments of Chapter 4.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Will jump and launch 8 Chubber shots in the cardinal and ordinal directions, which will rebound back to herself.
    • The Matriarch's hitbox is large enough that Isaac can shoot her from the sides and be out of this attack's range.
  • Periodically spawns Fistuloids, and can have up to a maximum of 4 out at once. One Fistuloid will chase Isaac, while the rest will orbit the Matriarch.
  • Spawns two small Fistulas once it takes 140 damage, and 2 more every 100 damage afterward.
  • Spews a blood shot that leaves Red Creep on the ground, like Mr. Fred. This shot can damage and bounce off of Fistuloids she has spawned.
  • After taking 340 damage, the Matriarch will spawn a wave of glowing Red Fistuloids that have 20 HP and rapidly lose health, making them shoot their maggots almost immediately. After that, the Matriarch can use this attack just like any of her other attacks.
  • When at low HP (after taking ~540 damage), The Matriarch will split into a medium-sized Fistula, 2 small Fistulas, a Fistuloid, and a low-health version of Chub, the latter being similar to how Brownie leaves a weakened Dangle upon death. Any Fistuloids that were orbiting the Matriarch will now orbit Chub.
    • The Chub spawned from the Matriarch will always start charging in a random direction, regardless of Isaac's position before returning to the normal Chub pattern, similar to the Chargers spawned by Sloth.
    • If the Chub that is spawned from the Matriarch eats a bomb, she will spit it back out at the player. Most bomb modifiers will still be on the bomb, with the exception of Bomber Boy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The meaning of the word Matriarch is a woman who is the head of a family, a tribe, or an organization.
  • The Matriarch appears to be a giant Fistuloid.
    • However, she also appears to be a combination of Fistula and Chub.
  • The Matriarch is the only boss that was added from a booster pack.
