Dagger Spider were a type of spider-like Rahi.
The Dagger Spider species was first created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the numerous Rahi that inhabited the Matoran Universe.
A large 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 Spiders were carried to the surface along with the land mass, and continued their lives for a thousand years. On Voya Nui, they were usually seen in the Green Belt.
Abilities and Traits
Dagger Spiders were named for their sharp, dagger-like legs. Usually, they were seen in large swarms that crawled out of large cracks in the ground. The Spiders did not bite their enemies when attacking, setting them apart from other Rahi spiders. Instead, they usually feinted as if to bite, but then stabbed with their front legs, injecting a paralyzing venom into the victim.
