Spriteling, Wario World

Big Scorpers are enemies in Wario World, found in Pecan Sands. They are big red scorpions with long tails, blue eyes, no claws, and small legs. They will attempt to strike at Wario with their tails if he stands on or near their heads.

The only way to attack Big Scorpers is to use a Ground Pound on their heads. After doing so three times, they will be knocked out of the sand and become vulnerable to Wario's attacks.

  • The game's official European website erroneously gives the name "Big Scorper" to the Sandworm boss, despite it clearly not being a scorpion. Presumably, the writer of that section misinterpreted the Spriteling's hint as referring to the boss instead of the enemy.
