Megabites are strange, evil skulls that appear in the game Super Paper Mario. The waving purple tails coming out of their skulls gives them a vaguely fish-like appearance. Their name is a portmanteau of "megabyte," a measurement in computing, and "bite."
Megabites swoop down from the sky at the heroes, dealing 1 damage with each hit. No matter how high the heroes' attack power is, Megabites will only take 1 damage per hit. With 4 HP, it will take four hits to defeat. In the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials, they appear immediately upon entrance to the floors they appear on. Its location is not specific; it tends to appear in various locations at 3 to 5 minutes. Some locations where the enemy has been sighted include Chapter 1-3, Chapter 1-4, Chapter 2-2, Chapter 3-4, Chapter 4-2, Chapter 5-1, and Chapter 5-2 (where you get the fire tablet). It is very possible it could appear randomly on other chapters as well. Mario and his friends needed to keep an eye out for Megabites as they can serve a distraction when fighting other enemies. Also, if the player does not defeat a Megabite after about seven swoops, the enemy will flee and leave the player with no points. Megabites also have a chance of dropping items such as a Shooting Star, a Thunder Rage or more rarely a Catch Card SP or lots of coins so its best to defeat them.
