Giant Spiders are a creature archetype widespread in modern fantasy works.


Giant Spiders are extremely large spiders (at least the size of a dog, often much bigger). In science fiction works, they may be mutants from regular spider species, while in fantasy settings, giant spiders may be a legimitate breed of spiders who can be encountered in some types of landscape. Although this is far from universal, fantasy's Giant Spiders can be sapient and capable of speech.
