The scorpion is a somewhat common enemy in later Gauntlets.
Yellow scorpions were the first enemies encountered in the first level.
They're here to reprise their role from Legends.
Undead scorpions are a common and very annoying foe. Though easily battered to shreds, they possess an annoying melee attack and enemy wizards tend to use them as projectiles. There also exists a living version in one of the Forest areas.
