The Spider Slay Rune is akin to Shin's sword Tarantula, which he wields with much proud. Together they enable a special offensive technique, the so called "Eight-Slash Sword". The bearer of the sword as well as the appropriate rune inflicts a series of eight strong sword slashes – symbolising the eight legs of a spider – to cause sever physical damage to the foe. This technique reuires an enormous amount of strength and is therefore only usable once per battle. The user however does not suffer any negative status condition like he would with many other command runes.
During the Highland attack in the Dunan Unification War, led by Rowd, on Greenhill, this particular rune proved to be highly useful to Shin in his efforts to protect the reigning mayor Teresa. To this day no further copies are known to exist of either the Spider Slay Rune or sword counterpart. - Celes
