Guard scorpionFFVII

Guard Scorpion, also known as the Magitek Scorpion, is a guard robot that resembles a scorpion by design as it has six legs and a long tail. It first appeared in Final Fantasy VII as the game's first boss, and has since appeared in other games in allusion to this battle.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

VII

Cloud and Barret fight Guard Scorpion in the Sector 1 Reactor at the Mako Reactor's Core. A misleading battle message has Cloud tell the player to attack Guard Scorpion while its tail is raised, but doing so will always cause it to use Tail Laser, a counter-attack which deals large damage to the entire party. This is its only strong attack.

Guard Scorpion is fairly easy because it is the first boss. Guard Scorpion has two forms; 1) its standard idle animation, and 2) with its tail raised. Guard Scorpion has a fixed attack pattern: Search Scope, Attack, Search Scope, Attack, Transform to Form 2, Wait, Wait, Transform to Form 1, and it starts from Search Scope again. It always uses Search Scope on the victim of its attacks before attacking, and Search Scope does nothing. Its two basic attacks, Rifle and Scorpion Tail, do moderate damage.

Strategy

The game goes out of its way to make sure Tyro's first fight is a no-lose battle. The player is once again warned to avoid attacks while the tail is up--the counterattack will send Tyro into critical status, and if that should happen (it does happen no matter what), Dr. Mog offers up his lone Bahamut spell which will end the fight. In future encounters, patience is the key. Hit it while its defenses are down with Thunder spells and timed strikes. White Mage and Black Mage are added to the roster on a successful first pass.

EtymologyEdit

Scorpions are predatory arachnids of the order Scorpiones. They have eight legs and are easily recognized by the pair of grasping pedipalps and the narrow, segmented tail, often carried in a characteristic forward curve over the back, ending with a venomous stinger.
