Giant Spiders are enemies in the Castlevania series. They often hang down from webs and may shoot webs or smaller spiders at the player.



Castlevania II: Simon's QuestEdit

First appearance of giant spiders in the series. These enemies are first encountered in Denis Woods, right outside the cave that holds the Sacred Flame. They crawl among the treetops and every given time they descend hanging from a web thread, shooting webbings at Simon.

Due to them usually being out of the hero's reach and able of shooting projectiles at an angle, they may pose a threat if allowed to gang up on the player.

Castlevania II: Belmont's RevengeEdit

In Belmont's Revenge, spiders, as usual, are found hanging from web threads, this time always above bottomless pits. Once dead, they leave their threads behind which can then be used to get across the chasm. For this reason, it's advisable to let them descend first and kill them when they are at the lowest point possible, thus leaving more thread for the player to hang on.

Castlevania LegendsEdit

Unlike most incarnations, Spiders in Legends are found crawling on floors instead of hanging from web threads. They are the main enemies encountered in the Top Floor of the Castle (Stage 4). They move fast but only advance a few steps and then stop, giving a chance to kill them before they reach the player.
