The Scorpions are the main enemy faction in Double Dragon II for the Game Boy. Their ranks are conformed by members of a school of very talented martial artists and their emblem is a scorpion.


Despite their intimidating name, the Scorpions were a force of good that helped keep the peace in New York City after the defeat of the Black Shadow Warriors, always under the guidance of their righteous leader, Gordon. The Lee brothers had been training with them and had even become their instructors.

One day, Wright, one of their members, was murdered by Anderson, a jealous rival instructor who sought to frame the Dragons in order to enact his plan to take over the Scorpions. He then set the blame upon the Lee brothers, which made the whole school to enter a manhunt on them all throughout the city.
