The Scorpion demon was a monstrous-sized scorpion that was sent to attack Inuyasha.


During the storyEdit

When Menōmaru was resurrected, he brought back his loyal servant Hari to aid him in regaining the thrown of power that was his family's heritage. Hari needed to lure Miroku so that Ruri could duplicate his powers. She summoned the Scorpion demon to attack Inuyasha and his crew.

During the battle, Sango and Inuyasha were both able to pierce the scorpion demon's thick exoskeleton. During the scuffle, the demon was able to scratch Kirara as a part of the plan to influence its mind later. Soon, Miroku used his Kazaana to absorb the body of the demon leaving a decapitated skull.

Kagome Higurashi approached the demon and purified its Jaki and obtained the Shikon no Tama shard from its remains.[1]

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

  • Enhanced Durability: The Scorpion demon has armor that cannot be pierced by normal means. Only Inuyasha and Sango's stronger attacks were able to perform any damage.[1]
  • Acid Projection: The Scorpion demon is able to spout powerful acid that can melt rock within seconds.[1]
