The boss is famous for being the first boss in Final Fantasy VII, and displays the iconic attacks Target Search (called Search Scope in Final Fantasy VII) and Tail Laser. However, this re-creation of the boss is stronger than the original version, although almost identical in appearance.
It is best to start off with casting Barrier on Zack. The strategy to fight the Guard Scorpion is the same with that of fighting the Guard Spider, of using critical hits or Command Materia such Assault Twister+, or Hell Thundaga. It is useful to dodge its attacks by running around. Using Lightning-based magic is useful.
