History

Trivia

  • The phrase doton no jutsu in Arachnus's Soultimate is a term describing a group of real-life ninja techniques themed around the earth element, such as curling up and remaining motionless to disguise as a rock.

Origin

Arachnus is based on the purseweb spider youkai called tsuchigumo (土蜘蛛, "ground spider"), which is also his Japanese name. They are typically evil masterminds that use illusions and trickery to lure their prey, or inflict them with supernatural diseases. The most famous one disguised as a servant and secretly administered poison to the hero Minamoto no Yorimitsu, until he saw through its illusions and struck it down. "Tsuchigumo" was also a pejorative name for gold miners of the Edo period, who polluted rivers with the mercury used to sift gold, and were thus likened to the earth-dwelling poison-spreaders.

Name Origin

  • "Arachnus" derives from arachnid.
