Demon Spiders were large arachnids; typically they had a bulbous abdomen, eight legs and many eyes. They were agile and quick-moving, often able to leap aside from Kain's attacks, but were otherwise quite weak enemies. They had little Blood and Lore, and lacked Unblockable and power moves. Spiders could not be grabbed. They often hunted in packs and preyed on the Eyeless wretches in the Eternal Prison.
- Contrary to the title given to these animals, they are not actually Demons, but ordinary spiders that were mutated by Glyph magic. Hence they are not affiliated with any of the factions seen in Blood Omen 2.
- Prima's Blood Omen 2 Guide simply calls these enemies "Spiders" and they are labelled "spider" in the in-game-debug information[BO2].
