This article is about the EarthBound and Mother 3 enemy. For the similarly-named Arachnid enemies, see Arachnid!!!.
"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 when only Ness and Paula are in the party. In Mother 3, Arachnid!s only appear in Osohe Castle. 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!!!.

In Mother 3, its battle sound is Battle Sound 27 which falls under Code Numbers 517 for regular attack, 518 for Smaaaash! and 519 for Miss.
