Dagger Spiders are spider-like Rahi.


The Dagger Spider species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[2]

A population of Dagger Spiders established themselves on the Southern Continent. When the Great Cataclysm caused the area of the Southern Continent known as Voya Nui to rocket to the surface of Aqua Magna, the Dagger Spiders were carried to the surface, where the survivors lived for 1,000 years.[3] They were most often seen in the Green Belt.[4] When the Toa Mahri destroyed the Cord and sent Voya Nui back to its place on the Southern Continent, its Dagger Spiders may have not survived the descent.[5]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Dagger Spiders emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

Dagger Spiders are named for their sharp, dagger-like legs. Usually, they are seen in swarms that crawl out of large cracks in the ground. The Spiders do not bite their enemies when attacking, setting them apart from other Rahi spiders. Instead, they feint as if to bite, but then stab with their front legs, injecting a paralyzing venom into the opponent.[3]
