The Guard Scorpion is a boss in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- encountered in Junon while pursuing Dr. Hollander. In certain missions, Guard Scorpion is also available to fight as a regular enemy.

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. Th player can dodge its attacks by running around. Using Lightning-based magic is useful.

Etymology Edit

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.
