Spiderant Kings (Borderlands and Borderlands 3) or King Spiderants (Borderlands 2) are huge spiderants with large heads and small, relatively well protected abdomens. The King Spiderant is a foe to be reckoned with as they have high damage attacks, ranged attacks and good resistance.

Kings attack exactly like Spiderant Workers do, except that they can leap further and deal more damage.

Borderlands 2 variants are capable of performing the rolling attack, just like Spiderant Gyro or Spiderant Warrior do.
