Overview

Created by Weaver One, these unholy terrors of human and machine are some of Arachnos' most deadly operatives.

The Tarantula Exoskeleton Armor was developed by an Orb Weaver cell named Weaver One. It grants the user incredible strength and wires him directly to his weapons systems. Rumor is that the pilot must undergo a terrible treatment of some sort to properly graft with the suit.

There seems to be two versions of Tarantulas: The first would be a robot, while the second would be a cyborg created by integrating a human being, usually a Fortunata, into the Tarantula exoskeleton. Crippled Arachnos soldiers are also known to have been turned into Tarantulas as well, but not everyone survives the integration process.

The rare few Fortunatas who volunteer for the Tarantula program receive specially-designed suits that greatly amplify their psychic abilities, allowing them to not only comunicate the next few seconds of time to their allies, but also to distort reality for their foes as well.

The exoskeleton itself is a technological marvel which provides excellent mobility and protection against most types of damage. Special versions such as the Fire Tarantulas or the variants used by the Fortunatas have even higher resistances. It's no surprise that Crey Industries has tried to steal info on the Tarantulas' creation at least once.

The Tarantula Exoskeleton seems to be the basic idea behind the monstrous Jade Spider as well.

This Arachnos Corps is under the command of Black Scorpion.


Notable Tarantulas


Contact Small Regent Korol.jpg Regent Korol

This Tarantula Queen lives in the Web of Grandville, which she uses to learn about everything that happens in the island... and Grandville is an island full of secrets. Apparently, she's the current leader of the Tarantula Queens.


Badge question mark.png Number 204

Number 204 may be the first in a new generation of Tarantulas. Unlike the robots Arachnos fields today, Number 204 is an intelligent and self-aware Tarantula, which can explain the harsh day-to-day life of robots in the service to Arachnos.

Tarantula Queen
