The Skelpion is a relatively weak enemy present in EarthBound. It only appears in the Dusty Dunes Desert, and resembles a brownish scorpion. It either appears by itself, or accompanied by a Crested Booka, a Cute Li'l UFO, a Smilin' Sphere, or a Cute Li'l UFO and a Smilin' Sphere. A more difficult version is the Dread Skelpion. It is very weak to all forms of offensive PSI.
