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 2-1, Chapter 2-2, Chapter 3-1, Chapter 3-3, Chapter 3-4, Chapter 4-2, Chapter 5-1, Chapter 5-2 (where the fire tablet is located), Chapter 7-3, and Chapter 7-4. It is very possible it could appear randomly on other chapters as well. 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, as well as lots of coins.
