The Spider is a Creature type in Dungeon Keeper.


A weak creature who sometimes goes to the Prison and freeze prisoners for fun. Spiders detest the Flies and fight them if provoked or stationed in the same Lair.

-- Dungeon Keeper Manual

General Information Edit

Although not the hardiest of creatures, spiders are the strongest insect creatures that a keeper can attract. Their abilities serve to slow or freeze opponents, making them good support units. However, they are natural enemies of Flies, and will actively fight them if sharing the same Lair. As one of the three insect creatures, Spiders are a key component for sacrifices, and due to their love of training, will give you higher level creatures as a bonus.

Spiders make poor researchers and above average manufacturers. In their free time, they like to go to Prisons and freeze inmates there.
