Spidal Tap (スパイダルタップ Supaidaru Tappu?)[1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble. It is a mass-produced, spider-based Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.


Spidal Tapsprt

Based on Spiders, Spidal Taps are yellow spiders with a round body on top of moving platforms. They have red eyes with black sclera, three white legs on each side and fangs.


Spidal Taps are only encountered in Robotnik Winter Zone. In gameplay, they remain stationary on moving platforms. As such, they are unable to do anything other than being obstacles which the player can receive damage from by somehow colliding with them.

The player can easily defeat the Spidal Taps with a standard Spin Jump or Spin Attack. Like other robots in 8-bit Sonic games, no Animals pop out of the Spidal Taps when they are destroyed.


  • The Spidal Taps' name bears a striking resemblance to the 1980's parody heavy metal band Spinal Tap.
