Deadly creatures tarantula-1152x864


The Tarantula is one of the two playable protagonist on the Wii game, Deadly Creatures. While her origins are unknown, she is shown to have a grudge or vendetta against the other protagonist, The Scorpion. This is shown in their hostility for each other, constant chasing or attacking one another on sight. The Tarantula's motivation aside from that is unknown, though she seems to willingly kill and eat everything in her path (even when it isn't required).
