White Spider

A Queen Arachno

Arachnos (Japanese: スパイド, Supaido; English dub: /əˈræknoʊ/) are a type of four-legged spider enemy in Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Queens (Japanese: クイーン, Kuīn) are a much larger kind of Arachno with two abdomens instead of one.

Xenoblade Chronicles

Many species of Arachnos are in the Sound Category, meaning they attack if the party leader runs while nearby them. Some species can hatch from Pods. When Reyn and Shulk are in Tephra Cave, they comment on how it looks like they are Mechon parts inside the pods.


Arachno Queen

The Arachno Queen

In Tephra Cave, multiple Arachnos attack Shulk and Reyn a short while after the Spring of Grief. Shulk has a vision where Reyn is killed by the Arachno Queen. Reyn runs away from the hordes of Arachno, only to end up on the Arachno Queen's Nest. Shulk's vision is then about to come true, but a new symbol appears on the Monado. Shulk learns the Monado art, Shield, which protects Reyn. A boss battle with the Arachno Queen and numerous Arachnos then commences.

Types of Arachnos

There are several high level species of Arachnos found in Tephra Cave. Arachnos also can be found on Bionis' Leg, in Satorl Marsh, and on Valak Mountain. The most powerful Arachno is the Unique Firework Geldesia at level 98. It resides in Tephra Cave.
