Tarantula can inflict damage to Zack's MP multiple times as well as multiple HP damage; however, it is not a super difficult foe to defeat. Lightning-elemental spells work best on it, such as Tri-Thundaga or Electrocute as well as regular attacks from behind. However, if you attack it with regular attacks, be on guard to escape as it'll more than likely attempt to use Super EM Field.
[view·edit·purge]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.
