The Scorpy[note 1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, scorpion-based Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.

Appearance

Scorpies are scorpion-shaped Badniks. Each model has an orange body with spherical purple joints. They each also have three pairs of gray legs, a pair of cartoonish black eyes with purple eyelids, gray spikes for mandibles, and a gray tail made of several spheres with a purple tip.

Overview

In Sonic 3D Blast, the Scorpies are encountered exclusively as enemies in Volcano Valley Zone. In gameplay, they simply shuffle back and forth along a straight diagonal line within their designated area. They also have no active defensive or offensive techniques to use against the player; their body spikes and tail stinger are purely cosmetic. As such, the only way these Badniks can hurt Sonic is if the hedgehog bumps right into them.

These Badniks can easily be destroyed with a Spin Attack, Spin Dash or Spin Jump. Upon their destruction, they release their respective power source, a red Flicky, which can be picked up by Sonic.

Notes

  1. This Badnik was given no official name upon or after the release of Sonic 3D Blast. However, its name was revealed in the Debug Mode for the unofficial Sonic 3D Blast: Director's Cut video game developed by Jon Burton, the lead programmer of the Genesis version of Sonic 3D Blast. When asked about its validity, Burton confirmed that this Badnik's name was used in the original game.
