The Gundam Mad Tarantula (Also Gundam Death Spider) was introduced in the New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Perfect Album Bom-Bom Comic Variations.
A variation of the XXXG-01D2 Gundam Deathscythe Hell developed for jungle warfare, The Mad Tarantula is composed of a torso similar to Deathscythe Hell's mounted on an arachnid-like body. It clears through thick foliage using the right-hand mounted beam scythe and the left-hand beam spear while its six legs allow it to maintain the unit's balance and maneuver through forested areas with relative ease. In addition, it was equipped with a multi-sensor camera mounted on its chest and along with the main torso's ability to rotate 360 degrees, the Mad Tarantula had virtually no blind spot. During combat situations, the two front legs were manipulated as close-quarter striking weapons.
