|Black Tear Monster|
|Habitat|| Sea of Black Tears|
|Disposition|| Hostile to Ironheade|
|Special Features||Can spawn Tainted Coil units, Roar is deadly to Eddie Riggs|
The monster has three heads - a central one that spits out injectors that spawn Tainted Coil units and a head on either side chained to the main head. Each of the side heads has a single stained glass "eye", while the Central Head itself houses two such "eyes". The side heads are also capable of shooting Black Tear masses at a size and damage similar to Weeping Heavens, although they only shoot one mass at a time, as opposed to a full barrage.

- The solo used to create the Black Tear Monster is actually the both the Chains of Hell and Launch of Death solos from multiplayer, but meshed together.
- If the player flies to the middle head before taking down both heads, the center head will focus on Eddie, and roar loudly enough to block out the music playing from the Megastage, while dealing heavy damage to him, even kiling him if he's close enough.
- The Black Tear Monster's three headed nature is a possible reference to the Hydra of Greek mythology, however, destroying one head of the Black Tear Monster DOESN'T cause two more to grow in its place.
- One possible metal reference is the main skull of the central head, in which it vaguely resembles the skull icon commonly used by the band GWAR, which also has one large round eye socket and a smaller, normal socket.
