BehaviorEdit

  • Jumps out of the ground towards the player, then burrows back into the ground. This attack is repeated multiple times.
  • When Scolex's head pops out, he will shoot multiple blood shots of various sizes, similar to Monstro.
  • When Scolex's tail pops out, he will fire three Ipecac shots at the player.
  • Scolex is invulnerable to damage, only his tail, which constantly blinks, can be damaged.

Champion VersionsEdit

  • Black: Scolex is larger, slower, and has more health.

TriviaEdit

  • A scolex is the name given to the head of a tapeworm.
  • Compared to the original Binding of Isaac, Scolex's head and tail attacks are swapped.

BugsEdit

  • When Scolex is slowed, some of his bodyparts may detach or won't even show up - they will only be visible while entering the ground (especially tail).
  • If the final vulnerable segment of Scolex's tail is destroyed using the Chaos Card, the boss will glitch and become harder to kill.

TriviaEdit

  • The scolex is the head of a tapeworm.
