The Goremaw is a creature of demon origins, usually found blocking important passages.

The goremaw resembles a mouth with four tentacle-like mandibules covered on the inside with teeth. Around her base are several shield like shells, which she uses for protection.

The first time War encounters a goremaw is shortly after entering the Twilight Cathedral for the first time. She holds a statue which needs to be released in order for War to pass. She will not threaten War, unless he comes directly under her. When this happens the goremaw will instantly grab War and begin to squeeze him, triggering a quick-time event. If War succeeds in completing this event, she will release him. If he fails however, she will take a large amount of his health.

The goremaw cannot be destroyed in any way, but she can be stunned by using the Crossblade, Mercy or spiked bombs on her. Then she will coil in her shells for a couple of seconds
