Tarantula is an enemy in Final Fantasy XV fought when summoned by arachnes and ariadnes. They can also be fought on their own during the main quest The Power of Kings. When summoned by an elder spider-type daemon, tarantulas die when their summoner is defeated. They are unremarkable enemies and more of a distraction and a nuisance than anything else. They are weak to daggers, firearms, fire and light. They are small and slow, and crawl along the ground and can jump with the aid of a lightning strike.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Tarantula refers to a family of spiders which inhabit much of the warmer areas of the world. Known for their impressive size, Tarantulas are often kept as pets or used in cuisine. Despite their tendency to inflict the Poison status ailment in the Final Fantasy series, most tarantulas are not dangerous to humans.
