The Arocknid is a Piñata introduced in the original Viva Piñata. It is a green spider with orange stripes across its abdomen as well as purple stripes across its legs and neck. Arocknids have four eyes and diamond patterns all along their body.

This eight-legged Piñata is perfect for any birthday party that takes place on October 31, but it's not always the most popular Piñata on the block. There's a reason some folks can't wait to whack it with a stick, and it's not just the candy inside!
