* In [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]] we have Arachne, a weaver of extraordinary talent once challenged Athena with her work. Ironically Arachne was turned into a spider by the angry goddess for her arrogance. A lot of art depict Arachne to either be human with spider features or a giant spider all together.

** Peter Jackson's version of ''Film/KingKong'' also featured giant spiders (detailed in the ''[[AllThereInTheManual Natural History of Skull Island]]'' as spider-like arachnids called "Arachno-Claws") in the Bug Pit scene. Based on the above mentioned 1933 example, of course.

** A giant spider also appeared in his earlier film ''Film/MeetTheFeebles'', where it [[spoiler: [[OffWithHisHead bites a character's head off]] and gets its face smashed against a hanging cargo]].

* A talking giant spider appears in a episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' trying to eat the Gummi Bears and is up to Sir Thornberry and Cavin to save them, which also works as an anti-prejudice [[AnAesop Aesop]] as Sir Thorberry distrust humans like Cavin and Cavin distrust Sir Thornberry because of his advance age and eccenctric behavior.

* ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon'': The first boss of the game is a jumbo-sized, purple spider [[spoiler:possessed by a ghost]]. [[spoiler:Though after we get rid of said ghost, the arachnid shrinks back to it's normal size (which is still ''massive'' for a spider).]]

** Planechase gave us [[http://magiccards.info/cma/en/6.html Dragonlair Spider]], which spawns insects. Spiders are technically not insects, but then you read the flavour text. Those insects are not spawns of the spider; they're scavengers eating the bits of ''dragons'' that the spider discards. That thing eats ''dragons''.

** Giant Spider is not the biggest Spider in the game, either. [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=88959 Goliath Spider]] is. It's a 7/6 and its illustration is it eating a drake. There's also [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=26661 Plated Spider]], which has the amusing flavor text "Most spiders wait patiently for their prey to arrive. Most spiders aren't forty feet tall."

* A giant spider attacks a mook and eats him in a scene of ''Film/KingSolomonMines''. Kind of a {{BLAM}} momento too.
