The Tarantula, also known as the ARACHNID in the NES version, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. They are very common in caves and some forests around the time the Warriors of Light restore the Earth Crystal, and their attacks cause Poison. Be sure to carry some Antidotes when traveling through these areas to prevent a party member's weakening and eventual death.

EtymologyEdit

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 venomous or dangerous to humans.
