Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Mr. Maw walks towards Isaac and when in range it will launch its head towards him. It appears to be a MawMaw attached to a GusherGusher and will turn into either upon death depending on the killed body segment. It can also randomly separate at will into a Gusher and a Maw.

Variations[ | ]

Mr. Red Maw[ | ]

(in Afterbirth † and Repentance)

Mr. Red Maw behaves similarly to Mr. Maw, but moves quicker and has a Red MawRed Maw as its head instead of a regular MawMaw. If the Red Maw segment is killed first, it will release four shots in the cardinal directions like a regular Red Maw. It can also occasionally separate at will.

Mr. Mine[ | ]

(in Afterbirth † and Repentance)

Mr. Mines are chained to pits and will attempt to launch themselves at Isaac if he comes near. They will occasionally burrow and pop up in another pit, often near Isaac. Upon death, they fire six shots in all directions.

(except in Repentance) Since pits have a chance to replace rocks in the Flooded Caves where Mr. Mine resides, this can give them more tiles to utilize.

Swinger[ | ]

Swingers behave differently to its variants as rather than firing its head, the Swinger's head is constantly detached and spins around its base clockwise in a fixed radius, while slowly sliding towards Isaac. The cord connecting the head and body of a Swinger isn't solid and does not deal damage. If the base is killed, the spinning head turns into a MawMaw, and if the head is killed, the base turns into a GlobinGlobin in its goo form which then can reform into a Globin.

When entering a room, their heads will be retracted and slowly rotate outwards until they reach max length. (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Since Booster Pack #5, Swingers extend their heads at a much slower pace, making it easier to avoid damage.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Mr. Mine and Mr. Red Maw were added in Booster Pack #5.

  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Mr. Maw makes Gaper noises while chasing Isaac, while Mr. Red Maw makes the Maw noise only if the Red MawRed Maw segment dies first.
  • Mr. Mine is based on the enemy Crunch from The End is Nigh.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! (in Rebirth and Afterbirth) If a Swinger's neck touches a red poop, the neck sometimes disappears while the Swinger keeps swinging.
