==Overview==
Scorpius appeared in [[Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 6|Issue #6]] of the [[Archie Comics]] series ''[[Sonic the Hedgehog (comic series)|Sonic the Hedgehog]]''. Its role was the same as in ''Sonic Spinball'', and it was dispatched by [[Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie)|Sonic]] along with his ally, [[Rexxon]].
+
Scorpius has an extensible tail, which it can use as a shield and to drip poisonous liquid from the tip. Sonic must jump into the gap between the tail and the body in order to attack the body from within; if he succeeds, he will bounce repeatedly within Scorpius and cause significant damage, unless he slips out of the gap, and must therefore reenter it again. After a huge amount of hits, the tail will break off and Sonic can attack Scorpius' body directly, with four hits being needed to destroy Scorpius. There is also an alternate method of destroying Scorpius by hitting the four targets above the ceiling, which will cause a pile of rocks to fall down and damage the Scorpius. The player has to bounce on the tail in order to reach all four targets.
   
In ''[[Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' Scorpius (which it was called "The Boss Scorpion") appeared in the episode "[[Attack on the Pinball Fortress]]" even though the design of it is different.
+
During the first part of the battle, the player can also use the [[Sewer Warp]] below the platform (where Scorpius is standing on) to warp above the Scorpius. If Sonic falls to the bottom of the boss room, he will be shot back up, so he cannot leave the room until Scorpius is defeated. The shooter, however, disappears once Scorpius's tail is destroyed, and since the [[minecart]] is no longer there, Sonic will fall all the way back to the beginning of the level.

For the boss in Toxic Pools in the the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, see here.

Scorpius is the first boss that appears in the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball. It resides in the first and lowest level of the Veg-O-Fortress, Toxic Caves.

Scorpius is a gigantic and orange colored robotic scorpion, with Robotnik's face as its head. It has four mechanic legs and a large tail that drips droplets of green liquid. Once Sonic collects the three Chaos Emeralds within Toxic Cave, the room to Scorpius opens and Sonic can battle against it.

OverviewEdit

Scorpius has an extensible tail, which it can use as a shield and to drip poisonous liquid from the tip. Sonic must jump into the gap between the tail and the body in order to attack the body from within; if he succeeds, he will bounce repeatedly within Scorpius and cause significant damage, unless he slips out of the gap, and must therefore reenter it again. After a huge amount of hits, the tail will break off and Sonic can attack Scorpius' body directly, with four hits being needed to destroy Scorpius. There is also an alternate method of destroying Scorpius by hitting the four targets above the ceiling, which will cause a pile of rocks to fall down and damage the Scorpius. The player has to bounce on the tail in order to reach all four targets.

During the first part of the battle, the player can also use the Sewer Warp below the platform (where Scorpius is standing on) to warp above the Scorpius. If Sonic falls to the bottom of the boss room, he will be shot back up, so he cannot leave the room until Scorpius is defeated. The shooter, however, disappears once Scorpius's tail is destroyed, and since the minecart is no longer there, Sonic will fall all the way back to the beginning of the level.
