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!

    Three Brothers were stranded on an island. They found a lamp.  1st brother: Hey! Maybe this is a magic lamp like the movies. They rubbed it. Nothing happened. They tried again. Nothing. They tried and tried again, until almost all hope was pulled from their very hearts. 2nd brother: Maybe we will be stuck here forever 3rd brother: Yeah 1st brother: Nonsense! There has to be another way Fortunately the lamp was just delayed. Very very delayed. Something appeared. It had legs, It couldn't be a genie Unknown creature: Hello. It is the genie. 1st brother:You don't look lik- Genie: Enough! Each of you have one wish. 1st brother: I wish to go home. His wish was granted. Home he went. 2nd brother: I wish to go home with my brother. 2 down, 1 to go. 3rd brother: I wish my brothers were here so I'm not lonely.
