If it ain’t in the Robotech show itself… It didn’t neccessarily happen.

Thanks, Carl Macek, for introducing me to all these folks.  Even the ones who bug me.

It’s just Aragog and Shelob going against each other.

Also, This is the book versions for the two, not the movie versions (IE: no poison stinger for Shelob - unless it was in the book).

That requires more thought on my part.

Well, Shelob has both paralyzing venom and killing venom. She could both bite and sting. She was also relatively armored.

“Now the miserable creature was right under her, for the moment out of the reach of her sting and of her claws. Her vast belly was above him with its putrid light, and the stench of it almost smote him down. Still his fury held for one more blow, and before she could sink upon him, smothering him and all his little impudence of courage, he slashed the bright elven-blade across her with desperate strength.

But Shelob was not as dragons are, no softer spot had she save only her eyes. Knobbed and pitted with corruption was her age-old hide, but ever thickened from within with layer on layer of evil growth. The blade scored it with a dreadful gash, but those hideous folds could not be pierced by any strength of men, not though Elf or Dwarf should forge the steel or the hand of Beren or of Túrin wield it.” - The Lord of the Rings (from the chapter The Choices of Master Samwise)

Shelob has the stinger in the book and Aragog can’t call in his minions.  My money’s on Shelob.

Perhaps. However Aragog probably would have better vision then Shelob.
