Spider is one of the four protagonists in Def Jam Vendetta.


Spider grew up in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His family moved to New York when he was 14 years old, and he quickly became a standout high school basketball player. In his senior year, he became the victim of a random act of street violence. While walking home, Spider was hit in a drive-by shooting. He took two bullets: one shattered his left leg, and the other lodged in his skull, leaving him in a coma for several weeks. Unable to pursue his basketball dreams, Spider turned to fighting as a means to make money and focus his rage. Spider fights using a mixture of judo and Muay Thai, with a variety of nice throws, palm strikes, elbows, and knees. He has a strong chin and uses his defense to counter and reverse his opponents' moves.

Role In Def Jam Vendetta

Spider shares the same role as the other protagonists in story mode. This individual was once the champion of the underground fighting circuit [1] and, at one point, met and eventually dated Angel, who performed at the clubs he fought in. This all changed when local mob boss and businessman, D-Mob, entered the circuit. D-Mob started to make changes to the circuit and assembled a loyal group of followers to safeguard his territory. Apparently, Spider did not want to fall under this conformity and had rebelled against it. This prompts D-Mob to come up with a scheme to get rid of him, he does this by seducing Angel with promises of fame and fortune and dangling a record contract for her. This angers Spider enough to challenge D-Mob to a fight resulting in Spider's defeat and being chased out of town.[2] Three years later, prior to the events of Def Jam Vendetta, Manny beckons him back into the circuit, after losing a lot of bets. At first he returns to help his friend, but later he has his eyes set on earning back everything he lost. After the defeat of D-Mob, he and Angel leaves the arena and possibly the circuit for good.
