The drider is a centaur-like creature that can be encountered in dNetHack.

Driders are drow who have been converted into a humanoid/spider hybrid, retaining the humanoid upper body but replacing the legs with an eight-legged spider body. Unlike the similar sprow, driders have arguably the best aspects of both creatures, but because of their deformity they are outcasts from drow society, and the transformation is generally considered a form of punishment.
