A megasphere is among the stockpile of items in the first room of Doom II MAP30: Icon of Sin.
Megaspheres in Doom 64 display a helmet similar to the player's, rather than a demonic face.

The megasphere is a gray-brown orb with a snarling demonic face (similar to that of the mancubus). Picking it up maxes out both the player's health and armor to 200%. The armor given by a megasphere is equivalent to blue armor.

The game manual states that megaspheres "combine the power of combat armor with the benefits of a Soul Sphere". However, this is incorrect, as soul spheres will add a maximum of 100 points to the player's current health.

Megaspheres are included in the items percentage displayed at the end of each level.
