In-game sprite from the original game.
Maggots simply crawl around the room blindly in cardinal directions, not targeting Isaac. Because they don't follow Isaac and move very slowly, it is easy to avoid them. Maggots are thus only dangerous in great numbers and enclosed areas, where it can be difficult shooting at them safely without running into them.
- If one look closely, one can see nearly visible eyes.
- Maggots tend to get stuck in open doors.
