Giant Mutant Widow Spider
The Giant Mutant Widow Spiders are giant arachnid monsters who appeared in episode 18 of Godzilla: The Series, "Web Site."
The design of the Queen Giant Mutant Widow Spider is adapted from Gus the Spider, a monster conceptualized for Godzilla: The Series who only appears during the show's opening title sequence.
The Infant Spiders are white in color, reminiscent of normal baby black widow spiders. The Infant Spiders have a red pattern on top of their abdomens and cephalothoraxes. The cephalothoraxes of the Infant Spiders have eight legs. The heads of the Infant Spiders have seven eyes, five small eyes, two larger eyes, two red fangs, and two smaller mandibles.
The Giant Spiders look the same as the Infants except they are larger and aqua blue instead of white.
The Queen Spider has a bulkier navy blue body compared to her children. Her abdomen has two rows of small bumpy triangular spikes running down, a red pattern on top, two spinnerets and a stinger at the end of the abdomen. Her cephalothorax has eight legs with two claws on each foot, and a patch of brown hair on top of it that ends at the beginning of the abdomen. The Queen Spider's head has seven eyes, five small eyes, two larger eyes, two red fangs on top of her mouth and two red fangs on large mandibles on the sides of the mouth. Her mouth appears to have six human-like teeth in it as well.
Godzilla: The Series
The Giant Mutant Widow Spiders were first seen in South America, where they attacked a man who ventured into the jungle. H.E.A.T. was then contacted by the military to investigate. They collected a few small spiders, and were attacked by many more. Despite the military's attempt to kill them with pesticides, the Spiders were immune to most toxins. The Queen Mutant Widow Spider then attacked the military base, where it faced Godzilla. The Queen attacked him with her webbing, but Godzilla was able to break out before both monsters retreated. After returning to its nest, the Queen laid more eggs. H.E.A.T. and the military then discovered that the pollen from a certain type of flower could paralyze the Spiders and used this against them at the Spiders' nest. They left their pollen payload in the nest, but were attacked by more Spiders and Godzilla was called to rescue them. He defeated the Spiders and H.E.A.T. was commended for their work.
The Spiders can inject venom into their prey by biting them. While the venom is only potent and not lethal, numerous bites can leave a human in critical condition.
The Spiders can use their numbers to bring down targets.
The Spiders can spray strands of webbing to wrap up their prey.
The Queen Spider can reproduce asexually. If her children are killed, the Queen Spider can lay more eggs to replace them.
The Spiders are resistant to most toxins. Pesticides only seem to slow them down.
The smaller Spiders could easily have their legs shot off. Godzilla was able to rip off one of the Queen Spider's legs after biting it. The Spiders can be paralyzed by the pollen of a certain species of flower.
