** In one scene of ''Film/KongSkullIsland'', the characters are attacked by a gigantic spider-like creature so tall, that its legs blended into the bamboo forests they were walking through. It impales one of them with its leg and attempts to draw another up by its fleshy tendrils into its BellyMouth. [[AllThereInTheManual On the Skull Island MONARCH website]] it's given the name of Mother Longlegs, and isn't actually a spider, but a colossal harvestman that's also [[{{Planimal}} part bamboo]], and [[OneGenderRace all female]], with mouths at the ends of its spiked legs.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has the Giant Spiders of Metebelis 3 (which evolved from normal spiders), the Spider Germs which live on the Moon, and the Racnoss. The latter species' empress was half humanoid though.
* Episode 12 of the UK version of ''Series/WhoWantsToBeASuperhero'' featured one terrorising various London landmarks and the superheroes' task was to mix a formula to shrink it.
* In ''Series/TheWildWildWest'' episode "[[Recap/TheWildWildWestS2E3TheNightOfTheRaven The Night of the Raven]]", James West and a Native American princess are menaced by a spider while shrunk. That's right, the series did a Giant Spider scene (more or less) 33 years before TheMovie (cited elsewhere).
* Giant melon-sized spiders called "''Mesothelae''" appeared in the Carboniferous segment of ''[[Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs Walking with Monsters]]''. They were larger than any genuine spiders of that (or any) time, and were only depicted as being so huge because a proto-scorpion had been mistaken for a spider; otherwise, this would be listed under RealLife.
* Some seasons of ''Franchise/KamenRider'' feature a spider monster in the first episode, and more recent seasons like ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' and ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' have a recurring spider monster. Admittedly these are just PeopleInRubberSuits with spider heads and maybe legs sticking out the back. However, ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' and- ''Series/KamenRiderHibiki'' went all the way, with proper giant spiders by way of ConspicuousCGI. ''Film/KamenRiderZO'' had one that was made with {{Claymation}}, featuring a creepy face and unnatural movements that make it ''so much'' more scary than the better-animated versions.
* ''Franchise/PowerRangers''
** ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' also has a CGI giant spider in one episode, complete with giant web. It wasn't even the MonsterOfTheWeek, just a denizen of a dangerous forest.
** Spidertron from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', on the other hand, ''was'' a monster of the week. Rita, being a WitchWithACapitalB, created it upon discovering Zack had a fear of spiders. Zack bored its guts out with the Dragonzord Fighting Mode's [[ThisIsADrill Power Staff]].
* The UK kid's game show ''Series/{{Knightmare}}'' had Ariadne, a very slow, very large spider who could block the path and eat the dungoneer.
* ''Series/{{Primeval}}'' had giant prehistoric spiders in its second episode. It's pointed out that, technically, they're not really spiders. They are not, however, the most threatening monster in the episode. [[spoiler: A giant millipede is.]]



* Within the ''Series/{{Sanctuary}}'' story, Big Bertha is [[spoiler: an earth-moving, psychically powered, possible divine]] version of this. Yeah, it's pretty damn cool.



* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E5PlanetOfTheSpiders "Planet of the Spiders"]] has the titular Giant Spiders of Metebelis 3 (which evolved from normal spiders).
** [[Recap/DoctorWho2006CSTheRunawayBride "The Runaway Bride"]]: The Racnoss, as a species, cross this trope with HordeOfAlienLocusts. Although the Empress is partially humanoid in appearance.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E7KillTheMoon "Kill the Moon"]]: The Doctor and co. stumble upon giant ''germs'' shaped like spiders living on the Moon.
* In the ''Series/GilligansIsland'' episode "The Pigeon", the castaways run into a Black Morning Spider. It's six feet long, [[RedEyesTakeWarning has red eyes]] and weighs 500 lbs.

* An episode of ''TheReallyWildShow'' had a spoof monster movie, in which the show's pet tarantula grew to the size of a building. This being an EdutainmentShow, of course, it was followed by an explanation of why you couldn't really get spiders that big.
