Dune Scorpion is a mini-boss of Chapter 4. The team encounter it on their way to the Ancient Castle. The beast is seemingly dead after the battle, but stings Leif when the team let their guard down. It's finally finished off by Zasp.
The battle starts with a single Psicorp in front of the Dune Scorpion. Take it out, then deal with the boss. Dune Scorpion usually attacks by pinching with it's claws or stinging with it's tail. The claw pinch usually hits twice, but sometimes hits only once. The sting will put the damaged bug to sleep or poison them on a failed block. Somewhat rarely, it will dig up a boulder and throw it at the team, dealing damage to everyone.
There isn't much strategy to this battle - just block its attacks and hit back. Dune Scorpion can be frozen if need, but it's somewhat resistant.
Spy Log Edit
|Bestiary||This rabid beast is the nightmare of all denizens of the desert. It strikes without reason, without mercy... It only wishes to cause violence. Its stinger holds multiple poisons, and its strength is massive. Upon sighting, do not fight - flee!|
|Vi||"Watch out! ...Phew. Kabbu almost got wrecked! This thing's way angrier than a Piscorp! We've got to knock it out!"|
|Kabbu||"Oof! I barely dodged that... It's hard to speak when being assailed so violently! And yet, it is my duty to draw its attacks in. Vi, Leif, let's do this together!"|
|Leif||"Impressive. Even though our ice pierces it, it barely reacts. This is bad. We'll have to use all our strength, to make sure it goes down and stays down!"|
- During the cutscene when Leif is hurt by the scorpion, there are several hints of the story in Upper Snakemouth, such as the white growth inside Leif's body and the cutscene with several vague conversations about lab experiments.
- In B.O.S.S., the battle starts without the Psicorp.
