Mainstream universe
(Capcom's primary storyline)

The Giant Black Widow was a particularly-large Black Widow B.O.W. It fought Chris Redfield in the Antarctic Base.


During his search for his sister Claire, Chris found this giant spider in the package sorting room after using the crane key to get Alexander's pierce from his dead mutated body.


One of these spiders, like the Black Tiger, reacted differently to the t-Virus than others of its kind and, again like the Black Tiger, reacted by growing significantly larger.

Unlike other spider-based B.O.W.s, Black Widows completely lacked body hair[1].

After receiving a lot o damage, the spider's abdomen may explode, releasing many baby spiders[2].


The Giant Black Widow serves as a boss.
