This Small Spider will only appear after a Bloated Spider has been killed. A total of five of them will immediately be released upon the bloated spider's death. They are permanently hasted, moving as fast as a character wearing The Paws of the Cheetah. This provides them with the ability to swarm a single party member and with their 4 attacks per round, inflict some pretty rapid damage in a short amount of time. However, like other Small Spiders, they don't possess the ability to inflict a Poison status effect upon a successful hit, a feature of their Mutated Spider cousins.

Compared to a typical small spider, a few of their stats have been altered to make them slightly more difficult to hit successfully. This includes a reduction in armor class from 4 to 1 and THAC0 from 16 to 10. On the flip side however, their hit points have been reduced from 32 to 8 and XP from 300 to 100.
