History

Skull Spiders controlling a village

Long after the powerful Mask of Creation, Mask of Control, and Mask of Ultimate Power were lost to the wilderness, the Skull Spiders began appearing in force on Okoto. Commanded by the Lord of Skull Spiders, sponsored by the dark spirit of Makuta, they attacked several of the villages and menaced the Okotans. Their goal was uncovering Ekimu's Golden Masks of Power for Makuta, the locations of which were only known by the villages' Protectors.

Soon after Toa Tahu crash landed on Okoto, several Skull Spiders attacked him, but he effortlessly defeated them.

Many Skull Spiders followed the Protectors as they led the Toa through Okoto's wilderness for weeks to find the Golden Masks of Power. Once the Toa neared claiming their Golden Masks of Power, the Skull Spiders attacked, though they were defeated by the Toa's increased elemental powers. This forced their Lord to challenge the Toa himself, only to be defeated by their combined efforts.

The Skull Spiders later retrieved the body of their injured master and took him to his lair to recover, and began rallying the Skull Spiders on the island to start a full scale assault on Okoto. However, the Protectors discovered the lair trying to to enter the City of the Mask Makers. Eventually, a major battle took place in the Lord of Skull Spiders' lair, which ended with the Protectors bringing the ceiling down on him and the Skull Spiders.[1]

Makuta sent a Skull Spider to free Kulta from his cell and retrieve his mask.[2]

Several joining a group of Skull Warriors in attacking the reclaimed City of the Mask Makers, and later at least one Skull Spider was captured by Shadow Traps.
