"There's nothing special about this spider at all. It isn't poisonous, and it doesn't have any medicinal benefits whatsoever." --- Battle Memory
"They'll try to trap you in their webs and may call for backup, but their defense is so low that they don't pose a real threat. Drops Fresh Mint (20%)."
— Mother 3 Guidebook

Arachnid!s are enemies in EarthBound and Mother 3. In both of their appearances, they are striped spiders. In EarthBound, Arachnid!s appear in the Rainy Circle from Jeff's travel to Threed to save Ness and Paula.

In Mother 3, Arachnid!s only appear in Osohe Castle on chapters 2 and 7. During a battle with one or more Arachnid!s, an Arachnid! may drop down from the ceiling and enter the battle, thereby prolonging it. It is the weakest arachnid type enemy, and it lacks a Poison attack unlike it's EarthBound counterpart. They have a stronger form, the Arachnid!!!.
