* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' got Driders, failed drow punished (or blessed, in 4th edition) by transformation at the will of Lolth the Spider Queen, who herself appears in another spider-drow hybrid form and keeps yet one more as servants in her domain.
** ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has multi-armed humanoids Chitines, including female [[http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/mof_gallery/MonFaePG27.jpg Choldriths]]. These were created by the drow wizards of Ched Nasad, TurnedAgainstTheirMasters, but serve the Spider Queen.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' got has quite a few of these throughout its many editions and settings.
** Perhaps the most iconic of all are
Driders, failed who created the definitive "humanoid from the waist up, giant spider from the waist down" appearance that almost every spider-person has since used. These are Drow transformed into their new form by Lolth, [[DemonLordsAndArchDevils Demon Queen of Spiders]] and racial patron of the dark elves. Traditionally, this is a ''punishment'' for the drow punished (or blessed, in question, although 4th edition) by transformation at edition pointed out the will FridgeLogic of being made more spidery by a god ''of'' spiders somehow being a punishment and instead made it a blessing. In TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}, Lolth is cut out of the Spider Queen, who process etirely and now drow are magically reshaped into driders by other drow as a punishment.
** Lolth
herself appears in another spider-drow hybrid form fits this trope, being capable of appearing as a drow woman, a giant spider, and keeps yet one more either a drider, a giant spider with a drow's head, or both.
** Chitines are a race of spider-people created by the drow
as servants in her domain.
** ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has multi-armed humanoids Chitines, including
a slave-race, appearing as bipedal figures with pronounced fangs and multiple elongated, multiply jointed arms. They are ruled over by female priestesses called Cholodriths, who, depending on edition, either look like [[http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/mof_gallery/MonFaePG27.jpg Choldriths]]. These were created by spiders with elven faces]] or else something like a more hideous drider. Unfortunately for the drow, Lolth took offense to the fact that the chitines weren't "properly" consecrated to her, and inspired them to rebel. [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters Now they constantly wage war on the drow wizards of Ched Nasad, TurnedAgainstTheirMasters, but serve to prove that they re Lolth's "true children".
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'', we have
the Spider Queen.Aranea, who combine this trope with OurWerebeastsAreDifferent. They're a race of sapient {{giant spider}}s who developed both an innate affinity for magic and the power to shapeshift into partially or wholely humanoid form. In a rarity amongst such races, they're actually not evil, with a typical alignment of TrueNeutral; they mostly just want to be left in peace and live a quiet life.
** Tristessa, the banshee darklord of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'', became a pariah among her fellow shadow fey when she gave birth to a spider-legged daughter. It's unclear if the baby was a full-fledged drider or not.

* A semi-inversion in the 2017 sequel film to '' Film/JourneyToTheWest''. The spider demons are basically bus-sized spiders, with the upper torsos of women dangling from behind the pedipalps. [[spoiler: This does not deter [[ExtremeOmnisexual Pigsy]] in the least.]]

** [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil7 Marguerite Baker]] is a less straightforward example. While normally a somewhat normal-looking old woman, in her [[OneWingedAngel mutated]] form her arms grow to freakish proportions and her lower torso bloats into something that looks like a spider abdomen. Then she [[WallCrawl crawls on walls]] [[UncannyValley while still taunting you...]]
