Added DiffLines:

** The Jabberwock S3 B.O.Ws from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicle'' are a SpiritualSuccessor to the idea. Whilst not explicitly using spider DNA, they have multiple insectile limbs and protruding, spider-like multi-jawed mandibles, making them look like a horrific bipedal melding of human and spider.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the [[Characters/Warhammer40000Necrons Necron]] character Illuminor Szeras is the robotic equivalent, sporting four spider-like legs. He takes the appearance one step further by having two small manipulator arms mounted on his chest that give him the appearance of having pedipalps as well as regular arms.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Numenera}}'': [[TheLostWoods The Westwood]] of Navarene is inhabited by the Culovas, which resemble giant spiders with a humanoid torso, arms ending in clawed fingers, almost no neck and a head with multiple spider-like eyes and a mouth full of sharp teeth.



* Inverted for the Sharan, a race of spider people in the old Polish rpg ''Krysztaly Czasu'' - they are spiders from the waist up and look really awkward (even though their claws had enough dexterity to handle items)

** Chitines are a race of spider-people created by the drow as 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 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 to prove that they re Lolth's "true children".
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'', we have the 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.

** Ettercaps are extremely spidery humanoids, although how spidery has varied over the editions. They're web-spinning who shepherd and guard spiders and often have a particular dislike for fey creatures. One issue of DragonMagazine came them the reputed origin that they are the descendants of a druidic order that worshipped spiders and tried to become closer to their totem animals, only the whole experiment became a case of GoneHorriblyRight, perhaps due to demonic intervention.

* ''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.

to:

* ''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.

as servants in her domain.

** 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.]]
