Behavior when Spawned

Throughout my times with Salmon Run, I've seen in Maws spawned in, and it spawned near me, but it didn't attack me and went after a random player. Would this sound noteworthy? AsrielTheInkling (talk) 17:11, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

The player the Maws decides to go after is random, as it also is with the Steel Eel. Sigma talk 21:40, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Maws is not a Salmonoid

Maws is actually a giant eel. This could be confirmed because her mem-cake description in the octo expansion refers to her as a giant eel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Scuba (talkcontribs)

  • I would not take it at face value because it is just a poetic device, poems dreamed up by Agent 8 who may or may not have even seen a real Maws. Erupting Eel could be just alliteration. Nothing like that is mentioned in the Japanese version. Besides, its in-game model is just half a fish... A noteworthy piece of trivia though. We can mention the mem-cake, but whether it is actually an eel should be up for debate. I still think it is a type of salmon. It is definitely a Boss Salmonid nevertheless.
