I don't know why exactly, but spiders in some videos games seem to have these traits. We've seen it in Kirby with Como, Spideroo, and even Taranza has six "legs" (albeit not 3 eyes), and I believe other games have done this too. But why? Well, I think I've been able to answer the three eyes question, in that some spiders that have 8 eyes have them arranged in two clusters of 3 and a group of two, so it looks like 3, but that's really all I've got. I don't have a more definitive answer as to why they have only 6 legs, my only guess being that spiders are commonly confused with insects, which also have six legs.
