Prehaps the title of the page should be renamed to just Aegaeon, instead of Aegaeon the Hekantonkeires. We have a page just for Gyges and a page for the Hekantonkeires in general to account for all three. Winch1990 (talk) 08:29, February 3, 2013 (UTC)
I think that the prison that's in him is also be called 'the Hekantonkheires' and it was referred to as a 'living prison' by the developers; it could be that this page is really just calling Aegaeon a living prison. If that's not the case then it would make sense to change the page's name. Shmeagle Two wrongs don't make a right, but they do make a good exuse 08:43, February 3, 2013 (UTC)
Mutant hands theory
Seeing the bugs mutate the humans into monsters shows that they are the reason to Aegaeon's hands transforming into they're own creatures, makes since. But why would the arms grow heads? I think I know why, and it must have something to do the myth of Hekantonkheirs having multiple heads. We see only one true head on the giant, but maybe the bugs mutation taps into his genes causing heads to spout out of the palms. Similar to how a hydra grows it's heads, but differently. I don't know much of these bugs or what myth they may be based on, but this is what I make of this theory.
Perhaps you're right - the Hekatonheires were meant to have multiple heads. I'm not sure whether Megaera's parasites have the power to create something as complex as a head from scratch so they may have indeed just mutated a dormant head that rests in the palm.
