In-game sprite from the original game.
Maws are monsters appearing in The Binding of Isaac and the Rebirth remake. They appear as pale severed heads that float with empty, bleeding eye sockets, and a wide open mouth with a few teeth inside. They are commonly found in The Caves, The Depths, and their alternate floors.
Maws are similar to Horfs but upgraded; in addition to shooting blood shots at Isaac like a Horf, they slowly float toward him. Maws take a lot more knockback from Isaac's tears, which allows them to unpredictably bounce around the room.
- Champion varieties of Maws fire much larger blood shots.
- They can be spawned by Mr. Maws after destroying their bodies.
