Boss Scorpion[1] is a character that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It was a scorpion based robot created by Dr. Ivo Robotnik that safeguarded the Pinball Fortress.


Boss Scorpion bears a slight resemblance to a brown scorpion with a tan underbelly, except much larger. It also has television screens for eyes and a blue mouth with serrated teeth.


When Sonic, Sergeant Doberman and Wes Weasely invaded the Pinball Fortress, Robotnik took control of Boss Scorpion to battle Sonic. Doberman started out by firing laser rifle shots at it, but Boss Scorpion emerged from the shots undamaged. Taking his crack at Boss Scorpion, Sonic was able to defeat him by spinning around Boss Scorpion and making him shoot the terrain around him until it cracked open, causing the robot to fall into a lava pool below.[1]

Powers and abilities

Boss Scorpion was surprisingly durable, being able to take several shots from a laser rifle without receiving a scratch. It could also fire explosive laser shots from its tail.[1]
