C.H.A.D is a boss from Super Meat Boy
that appears as the end of the hospital in chapter 2. He summoned when Dr. Fetus
attempts to flood the place with blood in an attempt to kill Meat Boy

His pattern changes slightly after grabbing the first key, where he simply swims back and forth along the surface while flailing his arms.
The boss battle against C.H.A.D. is more of an obstacle course. After grabbing enough keys, the hospital roof will open and let enough sunlight in to shrink him, ending the fight.
