A Scarab is a species found in the Metroid series who was found in Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime Pinball for the GameCube and Nintendo DS respectively. While alone they are non-threatening, they could be a challenge in the large groups that they are ultimately always found in. They have an odd suicidal self-defense mechanism that will cause them to explode if one of their opponents touches them or gets to close.

In the Phenrana stage, a similar species is found simpily called Frozen Scarabs, which are generally the same thing, though stronger (barely though).
