Spoiler alert!

This section of the article may contains details concerning the progression of the plot. If you do not want it to be spoiled for you, skip this section!

The Beak Spider is a battle race machine created by Dr. Ogami. The machine has the front cutter-like wheel guards that can generates the 'wind blades' that can destroys any opponent's machines. Because of how dangerous the machine is, Kai Okita wears the special-made catch glove for catching the Beak Spider.

In the anime adaptation of WGP, Kai became a coach for the Savanna Soldiers, The Savanna Zebra was replaced by the Beak Spider Zebra, which was based on his own Beak Spider. In additions of being able to generates wind blades, the front wheel guard also doubling as the aerodynamic-adjusting devices. The rear spoiler can be eject from the car. Though the wind blades was mainly used for cutting down obstacles rather than destroying other machines, Juliana, the team leader of the Savanna Soldiers, disobey Kai's order and destroys the TRF Victorys' machines (saves for Go's Cyclone Magnum and Ryo's Neo-Tridagger ZMC) and caused a fire accident.

In chapter 3 of Return Racers!, Kai's Beak Spider was ultimately destroyed by the Death Angels' Mini 4WD cars along with Rei's Ray Stinger and Gen's Brocken Gigant and was modified into the Beak Stinger G by Crusher Jiro himself. After the race with the Seiba brothers, Jiro reverted the cars and gave them back to the Ogami trio.
