I don't own this DOOM 3 expansion so I can't confirm this, but wouldn't this thing be "The Maledict" rather than just "Maledict"? If so, the article should be moved, and the boss should be named The Maledict in all instances (with a capital letter T). Who is like God? 16:17, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
"Combat with maledict with BFG 9000 under artifact control . Note - The maledict can considered as Hell mighties as their health over than other enemies ." Come on now, that doesn't even make sense. -126.96.36.199 01:15, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

Just a thought...
Has anyone considered that the Maledict might actually be the Devil? Betruger might just have been a form he took to influence our world, and he seems to be the leader of all the demons.
- There have been many such discussions on the Doomworld Forums. The general consensus there was, in light of all available info, Betruger can be taken at face value as a scientist whose intrigue with the occult lead to him being corrupted into trying to help the demons reach Earth in exchange for power. Even though he failed to get them to Earth, they for some reason still honored their deal with him and made him one of them. The new information in Lost Mission is particularly explicit about this. --Quasar 13:16, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
Can anybody confirm quickly? I'm not skeptical but I never noticed it myself. I can verify personally, but not until much later. After that, I will clean up the mess that this article has somehow become. --Quasar (talk) 16:57, 8 June 2015 (CDT)
- To answer my own question, I made some comparative images from a video of the battle at various stages -  - deterioration is primarily evident in the skin flap between the body and the first finger of either wing. Some additional tatters seem to appear between the first and second fingers. All of the skin flaps become tinged to varying degrees with blood. --Quasar (talk) 18:55, 8 June 2015 (CDT)
