Resident Evil (original)

In the original Resident Evil, this spider acts as the boss of The Underground, having sealed the exit to the fountain access with its web. It can be killed with three Magnum rounds, while Chris could also use the Flamethrower to burn it. This also has the effect of killing any baby spiders that the creature is carrying. Interestingly enough, if the baby spiders appear, exiting the room and re-entering it will cause them to disappear.

Umbrella Chronicles

In The Umbrella Chronicles, a pair of Black Tigers are encountered in the underground caverns by Chris and Jill Valentine, but act like regular enemies. Rebecca Chambers and Richard Aiken also encounter several Black Tigers when making their way from the dormitory to the Spencer Mansion.
