The Übermutant (Supermutant in English translation) (name often Anglicized to Ubermutant) is the third boss of Spear of Destiny, appearing in level 16. He is an improved Mutant and Dr. Schabbs' ultimate creation, armed with a Chaingun integrated into his chest and four cleaver-wielding hands. The Übermutant is originally locked up in a cage. Like conventional Mutants, the Übermutant does not shout or announce his presence upon seeing the player. He also ties with Dogs as the second fastest-moving enemy in the game (the fastest enemy being Hans von Schlieffen). The Übermutant fires five bullets per volley (the cleavers are apparently just for show). The damage calculation done by him is different from other bosses. After defeat, he screams before falling to ground and dropping a gold key.

In the Mac Family, the Übermutant wears a brown suit instead of green and barks like a Dog when he engages the player (note that the SNES port uses Mutant Rats instead of dogs). In the mission packs, The Axe takes his place.
