Battle Edit

It has no real weakness and has high Magic Defense, so Celes has very limited options. Casting Blizzara and Thundara is the best option to dispatch Scorpions quickly, since they usually attack in trios, or the player can opt to kill them one at a time with Celes' normal attacks. Its special attack, Lethal Sting, inflicts Doom, making Celes have to deal with two timers. However, given the timers and the time it takes to defeat them, it may be better to simply flee from Scorpions to save time and HP.

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.
