The Skorps are orange, black, and gray robots resembling a cross between a scorpion and a tank. On each side of their body they have a caterpillar track for moving around and claws resembling that of a scorpion's. They also have round black faces with orange plating on top and a skorpion-like tail on the middle of their back that consists of several connected spheres and a mace at the tip.
Sonic & Knuckles
In Sonic & Knuckles, Skorps are only found in Sandopolis Zone. In gameplay, they attack with the mace on their tails. When the playable character is in attacking range, they will rear up their tail and take a swing at the player before retracting it to attack again. Skorps are often found atop ledges that the player must cross, making avoiding their attacks and defeating them fairly difficult.
It is advised to time the playable characters' attacks just right when fighting a Skorp. The player's best option is to attack a Skrop quickly with the Spin Attack or Spin Dash just as it pulls back its mace to attack again. A Spin Jump often ends in misery for the player as it invariably results in the Skorps' mace hitting the playable character.
