Shantae Wiki

The Empress Spider, informally named Chit-Chat Queen Royale, is the third boss of Pirate's Curse. She is the boss of Cackle Tower, and has 375 HP.

Boss Strategy

  • When the Empress Spider lunges at you to attack it can be easily damaged with Shantae's hair whip or pistol.
  • Eggs that are placed onto the ground will hatch into enemies if they are not attacked after one second.
  • When the Empress Spider spits fire, it's best to wait for one second a distance away from it and jumping + gliding with Risky's Hat when the fire begins to spread to glide over it.
  • After the Empress Spider receives enough damage it'll move faster.

The Arachnophobia achievement is awarded upon defeating the Empress Spider. Pest Control is awarded if the player takes out ten eggs before they hatch, and Squashed Spider is awarded if she is defeated without taking damage.
