Augmented Critical: Scizor will murderise you with its claws, they're that sharp. Their critical threat range is 17-20 and their critical multiplier is x5. Try not to get critted by them. Ever.
Sharpness (Su): Scizor's claws are ultra-sharp. As such, they count as +3 weapons.
False Swipe (Ex): Scizor can, if it feels like it, pull back all strength at the last moment, leaving a foe on precisely 1 HP, 0 HP or -1 and stable. Often, it will do this to a lone attacker, unless they meet again, or it will do this to one member of a group in an attempt to make the others stop.
Fire Hazard (Ex): Scizor's body is perfect for melting and bursting into flame. Scizor takes a -10 on saving throws against Fire effects. If an effect doesn't allow a saving throw, Scizor simply takes double damage and is sad.
Psion Hunter (Su): Scizor is really good at killing psions. They taste good (if you're a bug) and aren't too skilled at affecting metal and getting at the strange brains behind them. As such, Scizor gains a 25% miss chance against Psionics or Mind-Affecting effects. Additionally, its weapons count as being psychic-bane, gaining +2 to hit and dealing an extra 2d6+2 damage if it successfully hits a Psionic creature.
Spell-like Abilities (Sp): At will: cat's grace, summon swarm (spiders, locusts or bees only); 1/minute: mirror image, summon swarm (hellwasps only); 1/day: haste, creeping doom, iron body. Caster level is equal to its Hit Dice, and the save DC is Dexterity-based.
- The sample Scizor has a save DC of 13 + spell level for its spell-like abilities, and a caster level of 7.
