When the countdown on someone with Doom Sting reaches 0, they are wounded.
The Scorpion is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.
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.
