Official Description

Forgotten Sands

"These pesky insects appear in large swaths, surrounding the Prince wherever he goes. Due to their speed, it's nearly impossible to avoid getting surrounded by scarabs. Activate your stone armor power and start swinging away with your sword. Scarabs are the weakest enemy you encounter and only require one hit with the sword to kill. Stone armor allows you to avoid taking damage from a swarm while you clear out the bulk of the insects. The whirlwind power is also an effective to take out a large swarm, eliminating every scarab with the whirlwind's radius."

Forgotten Sands

Main article: Sand Army

The Prince first encounters the scarabs inside Solomon's Tomb, shortly after his fight with Malik, now possessed by Ratash.[2] A diminutive part of Ratash's army, scarabs are easily defeated by the Prince who moves further into the tomb to meet up with Razia in the city, Rekem.

Forgotten Sands (Wii)

The Scarab was an enormous insect created by the Haoma that typically moves and gathers in groups.



Scarabs are the weakest enemies encountered in The Forgotten Sands. Though their strength appears to be in larger numbers, attacking in groups and its size, the scarab can be easily defeated with basic melee attacks.
