Scarabesque (スカラ Sukara?, lit. "Scara"), is a Badnik from Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. It appears in Oil Desert Zone.


Scarabesque's appearance is similar to that of a dung beetle, and it has the ability to throw bomb spheres resembling dung balls. Its color is green and blue with gray stripes, while its sphere is red with white patterns. In the trailer that was revealed on 5 April 2012, it was confirmed that this badnik would appear in Oil Desert Zone along with Sandworm and a variant of Orbinaut.


  • Scarabesque has a strong resemblance of Egg Scarab in Mirage Road from Sonic Rush.
  • It behaves similarly to the Ball Hog, with both launching endless explosive balls in a given direction. However, the Scarabesque's balls don't bounce, and will explode even if not touched.
