Description: An enormous arachnid who dwelt deep in the Bad Cave, soaking up poison and perniciousness until she morphed into a man-eater.

It is said that she made meals of travellers lost in her cave to feed her clutch of countless eggs.

Venomissile, Eerie Light, Wicked web, Wind Sickles
Encountered at:
The Bad Cave

Tyrantula attacks using Wind Sickles (which hits the whole party), Venomissile (which hits the whole party with a chance of poisoning them), Eerie Light (which reduces the party's resistance to status effects) and Wicked Web (which may cause a character to miss a turn).

It is useful to have two healers in this fight, and if not, to give other characters plenty of healing items and Antidotal Herbs. Tyrantula is weak against the Blast line of spells (Bang, Boom, etc) so a Mage may be able to take advantage of that. Your sword-wielders may have Falcon Slash by now (especially if you levelled up in the Bad Cave using Metal Medleys) which is very helpful.
