The Jumping Spider is a spider enemy encountered in the Far Grasslands. Though mostly unremarkable save for a surprisingly damaging high-jump, its basic Hop attack can steal items upon a failed block.
A flower-decorated Jumping Spider appears in a small den in the Forsaken Lands beyond the fog maze. Unlike other Lesser Bugs, it does not attack and demonstrates higher understand, even (crude) literary skills. It will offer berries in exchange for items.
|Bestiary||Playful and elusive, the Jumping Spider bounces around the grasslands while avoiding its many predators. Its hobbies include grabbing things, eating bugs, and jumping. Lots of jumping. Despite its mobility, it preys on stationary targets.|
|Kabbu||How pitiful... So many legs, and yet you only jump! Well, and steal. I must make sure our inventory remains safe!|
|Vi||Oi! Stop jumping on me! Do you think I'm a springshroom!? And give me my stuff back! It's expensive! Grr...I'll flip you over with a Hurricane Toss!|
|Leif||Tch. We can't aim properly against this jumping nuisance. Kabbu, make sure to keep it away from our items. Still, we're thankful this thieving pest is nothing like Snakemouth's Spider...|
