"Well, well, well... What have we here... Why, it's Officer X. This is horrible! Why do I have to face someone like you here?!"
―Ground Scaravich, Mega Man X6

Ground Scaravich (グランド・スカラビッチ Gurando Sukarabicchi) is a character from the Mega Man X series, a Reploid treasure hunter modeled after a dung beetle, who was wanted by the Maverick Hunters for damaging historic ruins in his search for valuable data. In his work he discovered a lot of data on ancient robots and Gate took care of him in exchange for this information. Gate later sent Scaravich to a forbidden area (where X and Zero were discovered) and Alia, upon witnessing him enter the facility, ultimately intercepted him as punishment for his misconduct. She felt bad for doing this, but Gate appeared to not have cared about what happened to him.[1]

Ground Scaravich was later resurrected by Gate in Mega Man X6 as part of his Nightmare investigation team. He was sent to the Central Museum to examine the Nightmare, where he was confronted by the Maverick Hunters in the main hall. He was frightened at first, but decided to fight them anyway to obtain their DNA data and was destroyed.

Scaravich is most vulnerable to Yammar Option. As Zero, the player can also use the Z-Buster to destroy his rocks, although it just causes him to run off-screen to get another one.

Data

Attacks

  • Stone Roll - Ground Scaravich will push a giant gray rock of varying size, having four sizes.
    • In Xtreme mode, Ground Scaravich will also roll purple rocks of varying size and small brown rocks. The purple rocks can only be destroyed by the charged saber from the Blade Armor. The brown rocks can't be destroyed, and when one is struck, a larger rock will fall from above.
  • Shot Attack - Ground Scaravich will stop, then fire 1-3 small shots from his arm while using the stone as a shield.
  • Stone Kick - He starts using this after losing half of his life energy. Ground Scaravich will stop, and kick his rock at the player. He can kick them one of two ways. The rock will either fly through the air at the player, or bounce along the ground towards them.

When Playing as X

X: Ground Scaravich! You must be the burglar of ruins! What are you doing here?

Ground Scaravich: Well, well, well... What have we here... Why, it's Officer X. This is horrible! Why do I have to face someone like you here?!

X: Be a smart Reploid and give me the Information on the Nightmares.

Ground Scaravich: I'd rather just see what DNA data you have!

When Playing as Zero

Zero: Ground Scaravich! Why do you need to steal from another ruin? Hmm... You seem to be very close to the Nightmares...

Ground Scaravich: I am cursed, I know it! You are Zero. I heard you were dead. I really wanted to obtain your DNA data, but I no longer need it.

Zero: What do you mean?

Ground Scaravich: You can fight me to find out!

Trivia

  • Coincidentally, three of the four beetle-themed Mavericks in the Mega Man X series - Boomer Kuwanger (stag beetle), Gravity Beetle (rhinoceros beetle) and Ground Scaravich himself (dung beetle) - are in fact scarabs. This leaves only Shining Firefly (firefly) as a non-scarab beetle, and is the only instance where so many of a certain Maverick theme (beetles, fish, cats, etc.) have all been of such a specific grouping.
  • In their character artwork, Shining Firefly and Ground Scaravich are both depicted holding the ends of their mustache-like structures on their mouths.

Gate took care of Scaravich in exchange for the ancient data. Gate improved his knowledge from him. Then Gate had him go to a forbidden area. It was the place you were both discovered. I saw Scaravich enter the place... I felt bad, but I disposed him. Gate didn't seem to care... I didn't want to remember this..." - Alia, Mega Man X6
