Mother Poptops are a unique monster found in the Mines of Garden biomes. They are identical to Adult Poptops except for the fact that they have 500 health instead of 180. This monster is a larger, more lethal version of the Poptop monster that accompanies it.

Killing a Mother Poptop will grant the Achievement "Not in front of the children". It shares the same drops as an Adult Poptop, in addition to always dropping 20 Core Fragments.

Since this monster has a higher base health than most monsters the player should be well equipped to fight it. In addition to being a generally strong monster it also spawns a controlled amount of Poptops, so players should watch out for them as well. The Mother Poptop is always found in the room with the floor set lower than the entrance. Falling into the room makes it impossible to get back out without mining blocks or using Techs (which is impossible if the player has not yet been to the Outpost). A player standing by the entrance can use ranged attacks, or lure the Mother Poptop to the alcove underneath the player and drop Molotovs to defeat this monster. Attempting to capture a Mother Poptop will cause it to revert to a Adult Poptop inside the capture pod, also losing it's Poptop-spawning abilities. As such, there is no real advantage to capturing a Mother Poptop over an Adult Poptop.

Capturing a Mother Poptop will complete the Adult Poptop entry inside the Collections Library.

This monster does not possess a weakness (+50% damage taken) or a resistance (-50% damage taken) to any type of damage.
