Scorpio (スコーピオン Sukōpion), "The Scorpion" (天蠍宮 Tenkatsukyū), is a Celestial Spirit that is one of the 12 Golden Zodiac Keys. He is Aquarius' boyfriend. His key is currently owned by Lucy Heartfilia.


Scorpio's appearance

Scorpio is a relatively tall, lean-built, dark-skinned man with short hair that is red on one side and white on the other. His tail is a large gun that is shaped like a scorpion's tail that has the word "Antares" written on it. He wears no shirt but has a flower-shaped collar that is red and trimmed with gold around his neck. He has a red sheet-like material around his waist that is kept up by his large belt that has the Scorpio symbol on it. He wears black shorts and has bandage-like material wrapped around his arms and legs.

Scorpio has a habit of folding his middle and ring fingers back while keeping his index and little fingers extended, mimicking the pincer claws of a scorpion.

During the fight of Lucy against Flare Corona, Scorpio appeared with a different outfit. He wore a pea coat with armbands and a dark undershirt. His tail is fixated with a belt with two buttons.[1][2]


In contrast to his girlfriend Aquarius, Scorpio is much kinder, and much more respectful to Lucy. Scorpio has a strange manner of speaking, he says "We are" at the beginning of each sentence and refers to his sand as "our sand". He is also a trustworthy spirit.


Oración Seis arc

Scorpio and Aquarius

Angel summons Scorpio in her fight with Lucy Heartfilia as a means of preventing Lucy from using her Celestial Spirits. Upon arriving, he is greeted by Aquarius, who appears very happy to see him. Scorpio politely introduces himself to Lucy since she is Aquarius's master and instead of attacking her, he leaves with Aquarius to go on a date.[3] Scorpio, along with Aries and Gemini, seek out Lucy and forms a contract with her after Angel is arrested and the contracts with her spirits are broken.[4]

Edolas arc

Lucy summons Scorpio to prevent the Edolas soldiers from arresting her. Scorpio then utilizes his technique Sand Buster, which blasts a sand tornado towards the Edolas soldiers, easily knocking most of the soldiers out. After defeating them, he tells Lucy that he has a date with Aquarius, and takes his leave.[5]

Tenrou Island arc

Kain sends Scorpio and Lucy flying

After Lucy summoned Taurus and Sagittarius and both were defeated, she summons Scorpio to combat Kain. When he is summoned, Scorpio immediately shoots his Sand Buster at Kain. He is then shocked to see that his attack had no effect. Kain then sends Scorpio flying in the air with a palm thrust, after this, the Celestial Spirit takes his leave stating it is useless to fight if his sand has no effect.[6]

Lucy summons Scorpio again during her battle with Team Natsu and Wendy against Hades. Scorpio uses Sand Buster, which creates a Unison Raid with Wendy's Sky Dragon's Roar. Natsu uses the turbulence from the attack and hits Hades.[7]

Scorpio teams up with Taurus

During the Grand Magic Games, Scorpio and Taurus are summoned by Lucy during her fight with Flare Corona, unsuccessfully trying to attack her. After using Sand Buster, Lucy ordered Taurus to use it, then the two perform Sandstorm Axe Aldebaran, hitting Flare and making her fly away.[10]

Tartaros arc

Scorpio is summoned by Lucy in an attempt to stall Jackal whilst Michello runs away; Scorpio appears in a timely manner and fires his Sand Buster at the Dark Mage, but Jackal merely creates an explosion, both negating his attack and sending Scorpio flying away.[15]

Alvarez Empire Arc

During her battle against Brandish, Lucy calls out Scorpio to assist her, and with the combined effort of his Sand Buster: Revision and Lucy's Scorpio Form, the latter manages to deal a series of quick attacks, harming one of the Spriggan 12, who retaliates by shrinking her and subsequently squeezing her in her grasp. With Scorpio worried, Lucy counterattacks, first with Cancer Form, and ultimately by casting Aqua Metria, which reminds him of Aquarius, who she got that spell from.[16]

100 Years Quest arc

Magic and Abilities

Sand Magic (砂魔法 Suna Mahō): In relation to his scorpion theme, Scorpio is known for employing Sand Magic as his primary means of combat. He is shown casting such Magic through the use of his scorpion-like stinger, using it to produce sand which is focused to assault opponents at mid-to-long range.[17] Scorpio is shown to be able to shape large amounts of sand in various ways, such as a tornado[7] or beam.[8]

Sand Buster

  • Sand Buster (サンドバスタ─ Sando Basutā): Once summoned, Scorpio gets down on his four limbs, in a stance which is reminiscent of a real scorpion's, and then points his scorpion-like stinger at the opponents. A large amount of sand is subsequently fired from it in the form of a powerful sand tornado which moves towards the target in a line and strikes them with great blunt power; so much, in fact, that even nearby enemies which aren't directly struck by the attack will be thrown to the ground by the tornado's sheer rotatory power.[17] Aside from its most obvious, offensive use, Sand Buster was shown being used in another way, with Lucy having Scorpio combine it with Wendy Marvell's Sky Dragon's Roar through Unison Raid in order to boost Natsu's speed, allowing him to strike Hades.[7]
    • Sand Buster: Revision (サンドバスター【改】 Sando Basutā Kai): Scorpio fires from his scorpion-like stinger his Sand Buster spell that moves in a curve line to the air that strikes his target with great blunt power that has them in the air.[18]
  • Sand Spear: Scorpio fires from his scorpion-like stinger a thin but powerful piercing beam of sand at the enemy.[8]
  • Sandstorm Axe Aldebaran (砂塵斧アルデバラン Sajinbu Arudebaran): A combo attack used alongside Taurus, Scorpio attacks with Sand Buster, then Taurus uses his axe to control it and send it to attack the opponent.[19]
  • Sand Wall (砂の防壁(サンドウォール) Sando Wōru): Scorpio summons forth a large amount of sand to protect him from incoming attacks, which is enough to guard against Kamika's lightning attacks.[20]

Immortality: As a Celestial Spirit, Scorpio cannot die,[21] unless he is somehow forced to stay in the Human World for too long without returning to the Celestial Spirit World, something which would slowly kill him.[22]
