The Scorpion is the main antagonist in the 1989 film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.


The Scorpion was wandering across the backyard when he found prey. The Scorpion followed his senses and saw the Szalinski kids, joined by the Thompsons. He attacked the children, who ran away from The Scorpion, but Ron was blocked by The Scorpion and trapped inside a LEGO brick while the scorpion tried to grab him. He unintentionally got the attention of Antie, an ant befriended by the kids. Ron's brother Russ got The Scorpion's attention by hitting him with a torch, but the ant approached The Scorpion and bit him. This angered The Scorpion, who attacked Antie. The two fought, and The Scorpion was clearly winning. He grabbed Antie and raised his stinger over Antie and brought it down on the ant, and he was stung. The kids charged at The Scorpion with sticks and rocks, but The Scorpion wasn't going down without a fight and attacked the kids with his claws. Ron finally got a lucky shot and threw the spear into The Scorpion's eye. As The Scorpion tried to pull it out, a stick was thrown in his chest. The Scorpion finally managed to pull the stick out of his chest and run away.




  • Although his role is small, the Scorpion is likely the main antagonist because he had bigger plans and was far more dangerous than anyone else.
  • The Scorpion is similar to the Bear from the Fox and the Hound as they both appeared villains in the climax and are vicious predators who nearly attacked their intruders.
