** It is, however, capable of lashing out with its tail and leaving quills embedded in an enemy's skin, which makes it ''look'' like it is doing this at close-range.

Elderly tarantulas often have bald abdomens because they've used up their hairs in this way, and old age causes their moulting process to be increasingly infrequent.

** The Radobaan is a brute wyvern that can attack by flinging [[BallisticBone the bony spikes stuck to its body]].
** Nergigante is a powerful elder dragon that can fling spikes from its body as one of its attacks. What's worse, these spikes grow back bigger and harder in mere minutes, boosting its attack and defense, so hunters need to attack Nergigante as aggressively as possible to keep from being overwhelmed.
