Megabites are 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. Its location is not specific; it tends to appear in various locations at 3 to 5 minutes. The known locations where the enemy has been sighted include Chapter 1-3 (one area where the red palm tree is located, and another with the Yold Signpost), Chapter 2-1 (in the area with the Star Block), Chapter 2-2 (in the front yard), Chapter 3-1 (in the area with the red pipes), Chapter 3-4 (in the castle entrance), Chapter 4-2 (where the outhouse is found and the area after it), Chapter 5-1 (in the area with the first three rows of blocks), and Chapter 5-2 (in the area with the Water Tablet and another with the Fire Tablet). 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.
