|“||Arachnophobia's momentum is already too great for even the meddling Shinigami to contain. The madness of the Kishin is fast reaching its climax...and the world has changed. Up to now, the world's security efforts have bee manned entirely by graduates of the DWMA....but Arachnophobia has already begun the task of eating away at that setup. It is the nature of human souls—just a nudge in the right direction, and they fall right into the trap. Now, it's only a matter of time before Arachnophobia supplants DWMA as masters of all the world||”|

Lost Island IncidentEdit
Eight hundred years ago as the head of Arachnophobia, Arachne stole the blueprints from the Book of Eibon containing information. She then baited Death to Lost Island with them in hopes of blowing up the facility to cover up Eibon's most powerful Demon Tool he created, "BREW", for her to reclaim at a later time and to hide it from Death.
Creation of the Demon WeaponsEdit
Having gotten a hold of the blueprints to creating the Demon Weapons from the Book of Eibon, the organization assisted Arachne in creating the Demon Weapons and manufacturing them in vast quantities, killing witches and sacrificing their souls to create them. As a result, it caused her to be hunted by the God of Death himself and her fellow kind for her transgression against them. She was later defeated by Death and forced to split her body and place her soul in the Oldest Golem, with it being guarded by her henchman Giriko.
After disappearing and faking her death for eight hundred years, she is revived and the organization in which she spent eight hundred years secretly expanding makes itself known once again.
The next major project in which Arachnophobia pursued was the building of the Morality Manipulation Machine, headed by it's project director Mosquito with Mifune employed to act as his bodyguard. However, the machine's first built prototype is later destroyed by DWMA forces as well as losing the fragment of the Book of Eibon, with Mosquito taking the blame for his failure.
According to Mosquito, Arachnophobia's prime objective is to overthrow Death's (and later by default, Death Weapon Meister Academy) rules and supplant themselves as masters of the world. In addition to this, as the organization is centered around Arachne as if she were a mother figure; they support her as she aims to become the "Mother of All Things".
|Head||The leader of the entire organization.|
|Steward||Supervises over the spies in the organization, special projects, and works alongside both the head of Arachnophobia and henchmen. Those in this position may also double as a henchman.|
|Henchmen||Under the head of Arachnophobia are the henchmen, who personally interact and work with Arachne and act on the field. These individuals are some of the most powerful members of the entire organization. These individuals vary in power, though have shown the ability to hold their own against a Death's Weapon, some of the three-star ranking Meisters like Sid Barrett, and even has defeated and/or held their own against some of DWMA's best fighters among the student body, held in high regard by both the students and staff themselves.|
|Soldier, Arachnid, Fighter||General members of Arachnophobia. Usually suited in a long, dark purple cloak and a white mask shaped similar to that of a spider, they're the individuals that do the day to day work. They can range from guards to researchers and Enchanters. The highest rank of them is called a Chief, in which they give responsibilities to others.|
|Spy||Some of Arachnophobia's forces consist of the usages of spies in order to extract intelligence from their enemies. The spies witnessed thus far appear to consist of Witches. Spies within Arachnophobia report their finding back to Arachnophobia's henchman and Arachne's steward, Mosquito.|
|Assassin||Arachnophobia assassins are implied to undergo assassination missions as well and act as their more capable field operatives.|
|Research Division||A division which specializes in researching and developing Demon Tools, such as the Morality Manipulation Machine. Mosquito seems to have a hand in this division, being the project leader for that particular Demon Tool.|
|Enchanter's Division||A division made up of Enchanters who use Golems to fight. Not much is known about this division but it seems that Giriko takes command of this particular division.|
|Samurai Division||A division of samurais exist within Arachnophobia, with Tsubaki Nakatsukasa speculating there to be about 300 members within this particular group. All of them are also Japanese with the exception of Mifune, who seems to command this division despite their resentment towards his ethnicity.|
According to Medusa Gorgon, the entire organization worships Arachne Gorgon as an absolute motherly figure and follows behind her along with it's top leaders. The level of devotion of most of it's members is comparable to that of a religious cult, in which contributes to how it gained such a large mass to compare to that of Death Weapon Meister Academy.

- "Arachnophobia" is a Greek word, literally translating to "fear of spiders". This seems fitting, as the entire organization's insignia vaguely resembles a spider. Also, its head is a spider themed witch.
- Giriko required Arachnids to clean his room every half hour (thirty minutes).
