Spiders are large arachnids encountered briefly in Amnesia: The Dark Descent. They were originally planned to feature as enemies Daniel would have to encounter in the Archives, but were dropped as such from the final game.[citation needed]



Passive spiders appear in the Nave, but they cannot attack and barely move, being purely for background detail.


"Enemy" spiders can be added in the game with an editor, but due to their unfinished state, they cannot be killed. If they get close, spiders will leap and attack for a small amount of damage.



Spiders are roughly the size of rats, with dark legs and a bulbous pale abdomen.


  • In the critters folder, there are three sound files named spider_die#.ogg meaning that the spiders were meant to be killable enemies, likely by attacking them with the cut Pickaxe.
  • Spiders appear in Penumbra: Overture, another game made by Frictional Games. Both appearances are nearly identical, although the spiders in Amnesia are slightly smaller than those from Penumbra.
  • There is a large spider in a display case in the mansion's trophy room in Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.
