Arachnuts are insane, crab-walking green denizens of the Shadowlands of Gnosticus IV in Keen 4. The in-game help text states:

Insane, green, crab-walking creatures with two dangerous mouths.

A stunned arachnut alongside an active one in Sand Yego.

Physiology and Behaviour

The Arachnut is a green creature that crab-walks on six brown legs. It has on the face of its abdomen six red, pupilless eyes which swivel around erratically, and on the top of its abdomen two "heads", connected by stems, that each contain a wildly biting mouth.

The Arachnut can be stunned for a few seconds with a shot from the Neural Stunner. Despite this fact, it will soon revive itself, and cannot be stunned permanently.


These creatures kill Commander Keen with one contact, presumably by biting him. As they cannot be permanently stunned, they pose a very dangerous threat.
