In Destroy All Monsters, the SoshingekiKumo's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically sōshingeki (総進撃?), meaning attack of the marching [monsters], and Kumo, which comes from Kumonga's Japanese name, Kumonga (クモンガ?).
The ShodaiKumo puppet shares a number of traits with its successor, the FinalKumo puppet. Both have a primarily black-and-gold color scheme, though ShodaiKumo's eyes are purple, while FinalKumo's are blue. Its body structure bears strong resemblance to that of a regular spider, complete with a head section and an abdomen and a spider like face with 6 eyes.
Its 8 striped legs have three points of articulation. The puppet is also known as SoshingekiKumo in Destroy All Monsters.
