That's a Pider. ICK! They gross me out. Max HP is 5, Attack is 2, and Defense is 0. EWWWWWWWWW! Besides its normal attacks, it might spit three web-wads at you consecutively. You'd better have good timing if you wanna guard against its attacks. It also says here that the Punies can't stand Piders. So I'm not the only one! Just the sight of these things makes Punies flee in terror. I know how they feel!

Piders are enemies in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They live in The Great Tree and are the only known natural predator of Punies. As their name indicates, they are a spider-like creature, and just like everything else in the Boggly Woods, Piders are monochrome in color. It has two attacks. The first one involves spitting a ball at Mario, dealing 2 damage. The second one involves it spitting out 3 webs in quick succession, each one taking away 1 HP from Mario's HP bar. Like Scuttle Bugs, Piders have round bodies and suction cups on their feet. They also appear in the Glitz Pit as fighters, along with other enemies from Boggly Woods.
