The origin of the Tomb Raider II version, which is encountered in the Temple of Xian is unknown. They probably mutated over time. The spiders encountered in Tomb Raider Underworld have come into contact with an unnatural source, causing their mutation.

- Beneath the Ashes (underneath Croft Manor)
The Giant Spiders can be killed normally, but depending on the game, there are few things one should know about them.
In Tomb Raider II
In Tomb Raider II there are only five of the Giant Spiders. Despite their large appearance they are quite weak, attack rarely and do relatively small amounts of damage. The Uzis kill them quickly, although any weapon works.
In Custom Levels
In Custom Levels you may also encounter them, they look the same but are usually much more aggressive and often poisonous due to the fact that they are remodelled Scorpions, however, they tend to be weak against the Revolver.
In Tomb Raider Underworld
Featured in Tomb Raider Underworld, these Giant Spiders are pretty hard. These spiders, if they were to stand on their hind legs would be as tall as Lara herself. Capable of jumping, biting, and shooting webs, these rather large arachnids are deserving of a good squish.
While any weapon will work on the Giant Spiders, their biggest weakness is that they get no chance to attack Lara when she kicks them once in a while, they need a certain time to regain balance, in which usage of the Pistols is recommended. Once they regained their orientation it's time for another well timed kick. The Spear Gun and Sticky Grenades are also rather effective against the Giant Spiders.
- Also a larger version of an enemy that often appears in smaller size, encountered in the Giza Section of The Last Revelation
- Smaller spiders that occur in both Tomb Raider II and Tomb Raider Underworld, often alongside with the Giant Spiders
