Arantulas are black spider-like creatures in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They only appear deep within the Pit of 100 Trials. Arantulas are much stronger relatives of Piders, and are even named similarly: the Pider's name is "spider" without the "S", and Arantula comes from "tarantula", without the "T". They attack in much the same way that Piders do, however their spit hits harder, and the way they perform the three-spit attack is different: they fire one ball of normal speed, one slower ball in a high arc, and a much faster ball at a low angle, making it trickier to guard against all three.
