The Scorpion is a critter that only spawns in the Desert. It deals no damage, has only 5 HP and no defense. It can be caught using the Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into a Scorpion Cage to be placed as an animated furniture item. It cannot be released once crafted. Its counterpart is the Black Scorpion.

A Scorpion Cage occupies a 6x3 space. The Scorpion inside may follow the following patterns randomly:

  • Move from one side to the other of its cage
  • Look around to the left and right
  • Hide in the sand
  • Open and close its clamps while on the right side
  • Stab the air with its stinger while on the left side

A Scorpion can be used for fishing, with a bait power of 10%.
