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 three 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. In the Glitz Pit, a Pider appears as one of the members of Mind-Bogglers. They also have stronger relatives known as Arantulas in the Pit of 100 Trials.
When Mario is leading the Punies, if a Pider is nearby several Punies will be frightened and run off, prompting Mario to defeat the Piders in order to move on.
