The Skelpion is an enemy in EarthBound. They are gray, skull-faced scorpions that are located in the Dusty Dunes Desert.

A stronger relative, the Dread Skelpion, is found in Scaraba.


Skelpions can poison party members with its stinger, waste a turn by edging closer, and use PSI Thunder α. The Skelpion also has rather high Guts, and may land a few smash hits on party members.

It is vulnerable to Hypnosis, which can stop it from poisoning the party. It drops a vial of serum upon defeat.
