BACKGROUND: Space spiders are extraterrestrial arachnids that are the minions of Tarantox. Bowser Jr. stole them from the giant space bug and used the hanging spiders as guards. It takes two Star Spins to kill them: One makes them dizzy, the other kicks their furry butts into space. They may be related to Scuttlebugs.
