The Scorpion is an enemy in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest.
The creatures have two phases. The first phase has them raising their claws and tail, while the second phase has them lying down with their claws and tail lopped off.
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.
