The Gate of the Scorpion Key is one of the twelve Zodiac Gate keys used by Celestial Spirit Mages to summon the Scorpion, Scorpio.


In the Manga, the key is depicted to be a golden key with the crest of the Scorpion, a symbol reminiscent to a cursive letter M, stamped on its bow with the blade of the key ending with a shovel-like design.[1] In the Anime, the key is still depicted as gold but is designed more intricately. Similar to the other keys, the bow of the key contains a white center, bearing the crest of the Scorpion, colored in dark red. The part above the crest represents a scorpion's tail and needle. The blade of the key is forked at the end, similar to a scorpion's claw.[2]


While in possession of the key, a Celestial Spirit Mage may be able to summon the Scorpion Scorpio by reciting the quote, "Open the Gate of the Scorpion! Scorpio!". This summons Scorpio, a man with a stinger-shaped gun that can be used to attack with Sand Magic.[3]
