A night spider is a poisonous slayer monster found in Daemonheim on any floor. It requires a Slayer level of 41 or higher to harm. It is possible to find up to four of these spiders in one room, but this is very rare. They are usually found in "bonus" rooms of a dungeon (rooms not required to complete a floor). The poison from this monster is relatively low, with a max of 22, so antipoison is not recommended for them, but instead for the high-levelled dungeon spiders. Night spiders can only be attacked by people who have the correct slayer level to kill it.

This spider is the only monster that drops the shadow silk hood (requires 45 Defence to wear). For 30 seconds only the person who dealt the most damage is able to pick it up. After that, other players are free to pick it up.

The shadow silk hood is a rare hood that renders the wearer invisible to Forgotten warriors, Forgotten rangers, Zombies, Hill giants, and Skeletons (not including skeleton mages). However, Forgotten mages, Necromancers, reborn mages, mercenary leaders, and Seekers can cast spells to temporarily disable its effect, making the player visible to all monsters. If a spider drops the hood, it is highly recommended to bind this item, as it is very rare and makes rushes a lot safer and easier.

This spider is more often found in large dungeons rather than in small or medium dungeons, but this is only because there are more rooms for the spider to spawn in. Furthermore, the chance of it appearing is also influenced by the Slayer level(s) of the party member(s). Therefore, players or teams with higher Slayer levels are more likely to encounter the spider. The spiders are more likely to appear on Abandoned II (30-35) floors, so hood seekers are advised to use these floors when they attempt to get one.

As of 19 April 2012, Slayer monster frequency in dungeons has been increased by nearly double, making Night spiders a far more common occurrence on attempted floors than they previously were.

It does not count as a spider for Slayer assignments.
