Heart Spider

Gigantic hearts, equipped with eight segmented legs, that can be found in the 1992 Bio-Hazard Battle Sega Genesis video game (original Japanese title: Kuraingu: Aseimei Sensou, which translates to "Crying: Sub-Life Battle"). These pseudo-arachnids scamper and hop about amidst the pipework in Stage 7, while periodically excreting deadly red blood cells into the air. Heart Spiders are but one example of the abominations that the four heroic Biowarriors will have to confront during their quest to cleanse the Planet Avalon of the malignant organisms that have infested it in Bio-Hazard Battle.
