The scorpicore is the upgrade to the manticore, the sixth-level creature of the Dungeon faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the upgraded manticore lair.

Manticores and their venomous cousins, the scorpicores, have features combined of bat, lion and scorpion. They attack with stabs from their stinging tails. Scorpicore attacks have a 20% chance of paralyzing an opponent. Creatures thus petrified take 50% damage and are unfrozen when attacked or after three rounds.OffBck

The upgrade gives an increase in attack, defense and speed. It also grants a Paralyzing venom, similar to the medusa's Stone gaze, with a 20% chance of paralyzing targets for three rounds.
