The Giant Black Widow is a spider monster created by Hanna-Barbera that appeared in the 1979 Godzilla episode "Valley of the Giants."


The Giant Black Widow lived in the Valley of Giants, where it preyed on the monsters that lived there, and the Calico crew found it when they were in the valley. The crew called Godzilla just as it was going to eat them, and Godzilla overpowered the Giant Black Widow, forcing it to retreat. Godzilla roamed the valley, and the Giant Black Widow stalked Godzilla, jumping onto his back and biting him when Captain Majors tried calling Godzilla to fight Giant Bees living in the valley.

Godzilla was poisoned by the bite and fell unconscious, being cocooned shortly afterward. Soon afterwards, the Calico crew found Godzilla in the cocoon, and Godzooky was trapped in a giant spider web. As the Giant Black Widow was about to eat Godzooky, Godzooky called Godzilla in the struggle and Godzilla managed to get out of the cocoon. Godzilla used his eye beams to burn the web and save Godzooky, and then started to fight the Giant Black Widow. Godzilla accidentally sent the Giant Black Widow into the beams of sunlight that caused all the animals to grow, making the spider twice as tall and twice as strong. The Giant Black Widow tackled Godzilla, but Godzilla grabbed one of its legs and put it close to the spider's fangs. The Giant Black Widow bit itself accidentally, and then fell into its own web.


Venomous bite

The Giant Black Widow can deliver a painfully venomous bite, capable of knocking foes unconcious.


The Giant Black Widow can produce webbing from its abdomen. This webbing is stronger than steel and can be used to quickly cocoon prey.


The Giant Black Widow has snapping jaws which can chew through wood, helped out by acidic saliva.
