Scorpio is built from fiberglass (his body shells) and aluminum (his knuckles and body/limb spikes). The spikes are firmly fixed to the robot's skeleton. Much like the many actual insects that have spike-like hairs growing from their exoskeleton to protect them from their environment, Scorpio's spikes are designed to deflect its enemies' blows.
