Scavengers are a uncommon enemy encountered in Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.
- "More powerful than their Spike Beast brethren, avoid these creatures at all costs. Their powerful hind legs provide them with the ability to leap great distances and chase down enemies with terrifying speed. Their elongated jaws are lined with multiple rows of razor-sharp teeth capable of cutting straight through bone in a single line."
- —Official Booklet Description
Scavengers are fought late on in the game, and so have a very large amount of health. It can take multiple combos from the Scorpion Sword to bring one down, but the Water Sword deals with them easily. Their attacks are relatively weak, but they most often attack in packs, in which they can easily surround and overwhelm the Prince.
They attack by leaping at him and striking with their claws and jaws. They are also able to walk along walls. Luckily, they possess no armor, and no means by which to protect against the Prince's attacks, depending only on their large health pool to stay alive.
