The web Ariados spins is made of thin silk, strong enough to bind and hold an enemy. It attaches silk to its prey and sets it free. Later it tracks the silk to the prey and its friends.

The tiny hooks on its feet make it an excellent climber.

Evolution

Ariados is the evolved form of Spinarak as of level 22.

Trivia

Origin

Ariados is based on a spider, more specifically Myrmarachne formicaria and/or the Jorō spider. Its red and black color scheme may be derived from that of the Marvel superhero Spider-Man.

Name Etymology

Ariados and Ariadosu come from "arachnid," "Ariadne," (a Greek mythical figure who was turned into a spider for her hubris) ドス (dosu, Japanese for "dagger"), 脅す (odosu, Japanese for "to threaten"), "odious," (extremely repulsive), "adios," (Spanish for "goodbye," referring to its toxic nature), and "dos" (Spanish for "two").==See also==
