The Tarantula is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. This species is likely based on the original tarantulas (Lycosa tarantula). It is found on the World Map of the Floating Continent. They are somewhat powerful in terms of physical attacks, but are otherwise not a very large threat to a properly trained party. Physical attacks work well, as do Fire elemental attacks. If the player managed to acquire a Fire Staff, they may use that for a free Fire spell to quickly defeat these enemies.

Etymology Edit

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.
