Nidbots were small black spider robots that Ratchet and Clank encountered in the Joba battle arena. They normally appeared as gladiators in a battle. They were also spawned by the Arachnoid whenever Ratchet fought it. They usually appeared in groups and attacked by zipping forward.
- In the Monsterpedia, they are listed as being medium-sized, despite being notably small.
