The Scorpion is a boss from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates.
Like several bosses, it has a red crystal embedded into it, which is its weak point. It has several attacks, involving simply scuttling around and knocking back the player, shooting beams from its eye, slashing with its claws, and, obviously, using its red crystal stinger. It reappears at the Crystal Temple as a normal enemy in one room and the player needs to defeat it to progress (by that time, it drops one of each of the first 4 magicites, fire, blizzard, thunder and cure).
A good strategy is to always run quickly behind and continue attacking it. Avoid its attacks at all cost. Try occasionally jumping on it to make it charge its stinger then move out of the way and attack the crystal when it is stuck in the ground. You also might hear a distinct blast noise. Run to it's rear, and let loose until the beam stops. It will also attack with claws. When it does, run.
Of note, it has a resistance of 2 towards Holy-elemental attacks.
