Gish is an alternate boss replacing Monstro II in The Depths. He appears as a large ball of tar with yellow, beady eyes and sharp fangs.

BehaviorEdit

Gish's attack pattern is similar to that of Monstro II. However, instead of a blood beam, he attacks with exploding projectiles that leave behind puddles of tar that slow down Isaac. Instead of Monstro II's Sucker-spawning attack, Gish spawns two smaller Clots based on himself. Unlike with Monstro II, his first stomping attack does not produce any projectiles.

Gish is unlocked by clearing The Depths 30 times. Upon defeat, he will drop Little Gish if you do not already have it.

StrategyEdit

Gish is an easy boss once you get the hang of his attack patterns. His leaps into the air are easy to avoid and his spawned Clotties are simple enemies. His tar ball attack is easy to dodge, as the player can just run in a circle and Gish will usually miss. With this fight, patience is the key.

TriviaEdit

  • Gish is a character from Edmund's game, Gish. Gish was also an unlockable in another of Edmund's games, Super Meat Boy and the free flash game Meat Boy, and appeared as a part of customization in his game Host.
