The nightspider was a species of large, predatory spider that could be found on Naboo. Nightspiders were known to use a deadly poison to kill prey or defend themselves. At least one subspecies, the Poison Spitter, could shoot its poison at a target. The King Venom Nightspider was the most aggressive and deadliest of all subspecies.
- "I've been given my first assignment as an RSF Agent. It's not glorious, but it's a start. I'm to reduce the nightspider population around Kaadara."

During his career in the Royal Naboo Security Forces, Jonthol Mazoon was tasked to reduce the nightspider population around the city of Kaadara and eliminate the giant nightspider Noctur'lan.
