The Solar Scarab Staff is a Hardmode summon weapon that drops from the Sun Pixie. It launches a solar scarab minion that follows the player, quickly flying around them and bouncing off of blocks. It will fly at and attack any nearby enemies, briefly inflicting On Fire!. However, after each hit it enters a "dormant" state where it folds its wings away and acts like a projectile, falling until it hits the ground, upon which it resumes its usual behavior.

For this reason, it is not recommended to use against aerial enemies even though it continues to damage any enemies it hits while falling. Like other minions, the summoned solar scarab is invincible and follows the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, exits the world, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff. Its Eclipxie counterpart is the Solar Eye Staff.

The Solar Scarab in action, demonstrated on a Super Dummy from Fargo's Mod. Note how it folds its wings away and tumbles after each hit, only resuming its homing once it hits the ground.
