The scorpion is a somewhat common enemy in later Gauntlets.


Gauntlet: The Third Encounter

Yellow scorpions were the first enemies encountered in the first level.

Gauntlet: Legends

Scorpions are considered Anklebiters here, and are encountered in the Mountain Kingdom.

Gauntlet: Dark Legacy

They're here to reprise their role from Legends.

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows

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.
