Check out the facts on the heroes and villains right here!

Spider Riders - Main Characters

  • Hunter Steele - The hero of the Spider Riders cartoon, he's 11 years old with a supersized ego, a double-headed battle staff and a spider named Shadow. He's a little clueless about what's up in Arachna, but there's a prophecy about him that says he could either save Arachna or destroy it! He also has a crush on Corona.
  • Shadow - Hunter's spider is a powerful descendant of the Ancestral Lord of Spiders. He's also cranky about having a rider, and doesn't like big crowds.
  • Corona - This 11 year-old girl found Hunter and brought him to the Spider Riders. She fights with a bow and arrow from the top of her spider, Venus!
  • Prince Lumen - The boss of the Spider Riders and rider of the super-powerful spider Ebony. He's all about talking, not fighting, but uses a sword when he has to.
  • Princess Sparkle - Prince Lumen's lil' sis is a Spider Rider and knows lots about the prophecy, but she's no good at fighting.
  • Magma - A rogue Spider Rider that fights with a mace. He and his spider, Brutus, are good guys but they have to find Portia, Brutus' lil sis, before he'll join the other riders.
  • Spider Riders - Villains

  • Mantid - The leader of the evil Invectid swarm wants to wipe out the humans, even though he's secretly a human!
  • Buguese - Mantid's number one goon, he wears a mask and fights with a red sword.
  • Aqune - This honorable warrioress is a mask-wearing Spider Rider who fights with a glaive or a longsword. She follows Buguese but has stopped him from killing Hunter when it would have been dishonorable.
  • Grasshop - This grasshopper villain is a gadget geek, but he and his minions keep getting clobbered by the Spider Riders.
  • Beerain - This bug leads her buzzrays into battle with a whip and a heap of attitude!
