Book of Sphinx Description Edit
Due to the fact that the Alert Spider is a non-capturable monster, there is no Book of Sphinx description.
Abydos Museum Description Edit
- "The Alert Spider spends its life above the ground climbing over walls or ceilings. From this high vantage point, it is able to drop down on unsuspecting prey without drawing attention to itself.''"
- ―Abydos Museum
Traits, Appearance, and AbilitiesEdit
The Alert Spider is a small monster with six legs (unlike regular arachnids with eight) and one large, all-seeing eye that gave it its name. The species is known for climbing walls, ladders, and vertical or horizontal surfaces so they can better stalk their prey from above. To attack, they use their front, slicing legs, which make a clicking noise.
- Strategy for Sphinx: Simply avoid the spider, as there is no way to attack it in the first encounters. In the Uruk Temple encounter, Blow Darts may be utilized.
- Strategy for the Mummy: Use the electric mummy form to fry the spider off of the ladder. This is the only time the Mummy encounters the Alert Spider.

- The Alert Spider is one of the monsters already on display at the Abydos Museum. This is because there is never an opportunity to capture it, along with the Alert Spiders primarily being found on vertical surfaces and/or upside down on a ceiling, which prevents Capture Beetles from reaching them as they cannot climb.
- Despite being a spider, it only has six legs, making it more of an insect than an arachnid. This trait is shared by the other Spider monsters.
- It is one of the few monsters that both Sphinx and Tutankhamen encounter, the other being a Rat.
- It is also the only monster Tut has killed.
