First Appearance: TBFGK 1

A non-humanoid mount unit - eight legs, poisonous bite, spins webs... suffers from the same pwoblemErf-b1-p026Same-site.PNG as the dwagons.

Spidews are Heavy Units, but may enter tunnels.

[edit] Known Riders

Spidews have been used as mounts by Gobwins, Hobgobwin Knights, and Men and Uncroaked Warlords.

[edit] Real World References

In 'The Glory and the Dream: A Narrative on American History' by William Manchester, college people of the thirties on departure would say "Twenty-three skiddoo...".

"Skiddoo" means "to depart", and was possibly derived from "skedaddle", meaning "to flee in a panic".

The text in the entry image, "chk-chk-chk-chk hhhhsssaaah" is a reference to the Yello song Oh Yeah.
