The Aparoid Ship is a four-legged gargantuan Aparoid. Its first (and only) appearance was in Star Fox: Assault in the Star Fox Team's second mission: Katina Outpost. The ship has multiple attacks: homing missiles, anti-aircraft missiles, and more.
It has a weak point on its upper side and attacking it may result in its destruction. There's another not-weak point under it and attacking it will make the ship faint for a while, that way Fox can reach the upper side to attack its weak point by hovering up with the Landmaster.
Its sole purpose was to decimate the Star Fox team; as well as take control of the Katina Outpost. Given Fox's comments, the Aparoid Ship is apparently the lead unit of the Aparoid swarm on Katina.
- In Nintendo Power magazine, this Aparoid was referred to as the "Arachnaroid."
