Kyodaigumo is a gigantic black spider with orange stripes going down the back of its abdomen. It greatly resembles a tarantula.
Once summoned, Kyodaigumo can quickly release an egg sac full of baby spiders roughly the size of a small dog. To perform Rain of Spiders, Kidōmaru then cuts open the sac, causing the rapidly hatched spiders to rain down on his opponent. The spiders will spin a strand of webbing as they fall, circling the opponent in webbing and sticking them to the ground. These spiders converge on their victim's location, ensnaring their victims in spider-webs, cutting off the victim's exits and restricting their movements until the victim is completely encased in a cocoon. Kyodaigumo can also explode into webbing if hit.
Sasuke Retrieval Arc
Kyodaigumo was summoned into battle against Neji Hyūga by Kidōmaru. Immediately after being summoned, Kyodaigumo releases an egg sac which Kidōmaru slices open, releasing hundreds of baby spiders to attack Neji. After these assaults fail however, Kyodaigumo attacks Neji directly but it is defeated by Neji's Gentle Fist technique which causes it to explode into webbing. This webbing however successfully binds Neji's movements leaving him open to an attack from Kidōmaru.
Shinobi World War Arc
In the anime, Kyodaigumo was summoned into battle by a reincarnated Kidōmaru with the other member of the Sound Four summoning. It was later defeated once again, by Neji's Gentle Fist attack. This time, however, the spider explodes into Sticky Gold.
