Spider (Yoshi's Story)
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
Spiders are enemies encountered in Yoshi's Story. Spiders come down on silk threads and attempt to hurt a Yoshi with their spike-covered bodies. They cannot be defeated with Yoshi's eggs, so Yoshis must avoid them. They are found only in Stage 1-2: Surprise!! and Stage 4-1: Jungle Hut. A Yoshi cannot jump through their silk lines.
Despite their name, spiders behave more similarly to insect larvae such as caterpillars or bagworms, particularly the oak leaf roller larva, which is known to hang from trees on a thread of silk. Their Japanese name, in fact, references the Japanese word for bagworms. Appearance-wise, they resemble mites, which are animals related to spiders with round bodies and more than six legs.
