In the Games

Mega Man X6

Sprite from Mega Man X6.

Ground Scaravich debuts in Mega Man X6 as one of the eight Mavericks on the Stage Select screen. He serves as the boss of the Central Museum, observing the Nightmare Random. It is unclear if he was built by Gate, but he at least made a deal with him to share his illicit research in exchange for legal protection. Scaravich's time ran out when Alia witnessed him enter the forbidden ruins where X was discovered, forcing her to give the order for his execution. However, he was later resurrected by Gate to serve as a Nightmare Investigator.[1]

Ground Scaravich rolls across the stage with spherical rocks increasing in size, only stopping to attack. Defeating Scaravich grants Ground Dash to X and Sentsuizan to Zero. His weakness is the Yammar Option from Commander Yammark, which briefly stuns him. A boss attack rematch with Ground Scaravich later occurs in the ?????? stage.

Behind the Scenes

Developer Commentary

"I guess it's because we had made it to the sixth title in the series, but we got into some pretty unusual themes for our boss characters, like scarabs and water fleas. From a designer's perspective, it seemed like a fun idea." - (Haruki Suetsugu)[2]


Language Name Origin
Japanese Ground Scaravich (グランド・スカラビッチ) "Scaravich" is derived from Scarabaeidae, the family to which dung beetles belong, given the "-vich" suffix used in Russian surnames.
