Arachnus is a species native to SR388. At the near-top of the food chain, they are very fearsome predators, but seem to be very rare as Samus Aran only encounters two of them in the Metroid timeline, one of which is apparently an X mimic. The biped is distinguished by its three-fanged maw, segmented eyes, elongated neck, a hard shell on its back, and the large claws on its forearms. It is known to curl into an armored ball when threatened in order to jump towards its target in an attempt to ram it, and will uncurl periodically to swipe with its claws or spit fireballs from its mouth. It is encountered as a boss in Metroid II: Return of Samus, Metroid: Samus Returns and Metroid Fusion.
