Giant Spider's sprite from Donkey Kong 64.
|Game(s)||Donkey Kong 64|
|First appearance||Donkey Kong 64 (1999)|
This mini-boss only attacks by summoning smaller spiders. These spiders can reverse the game's controls or freeze Tiny. The Giant Spider can be damaged by Tiny shooting an arrow from her Feather Bow into the Giant Spider's eye. When hit a few times, the Giant Spider shrinks into a regular spider. Tiny must jump on him a few more times to defeat the Giant Spider and obtain one of the Golden Bananas.
- The Giant Spider may have been inspired from Arich, a boss in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.
- Despite being an Arachnid, it has six legs, while arachnids have eight.
- It's unknown if it's a female or male spider. It looks more like a male, but there are lots of small little spiders with it who could be it's sons and daughters.
- It is very similar to Queen Gohma, a boss in The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time.
