Cragspiders are enemies in Dark Souls.


They are encountered in Blighttown, namely throughout the swamp and upper walkways.


Fire breathing arthropod-like creatures with small, yet usable wings. Cragspiders are slow and telegraph their attacks long before dealing actual damage, but if ignored the damage is quite significant.

  • This creature's eyes resemble that of Quelaag's lower body (and Quelaag herself is located below the Blighttown where the Cragspiders live) and this trait, coupled with its warped body and humanoid hands, suggest that it's a demon-corrupted monster or even a lesser demon.
