Though the title of "Scarab Lord" exists in World of Warcraft, this forsaken scarab-rider is original to Hearthstone. Few characters have been called the Scarab Lord in WoW, such as Shiromar and Kalahad, but there is no singular creature known as "The Scarab Lord". As an achievement that granted the title of "Scarab Lord" to players of WoW, this card could be seen as the representation of that achivement.

The Scarab Lord is an achievement rewarded for opening the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj by completing the quest Bang a Gong!. The Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj and Temple of Ahn'Qiraj instances can only be made accessible by finishing the player-driven questline at the end of which the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj are opened. This title is no longer obtainable because all new realms were brought online with the Gates unlocked, and the Cataclysm expansion saw the removal of all quests relating to the world event.


  • The Scarab Lord uses the entrance music of  Twin Emperor Vek'nilash and the play animation of  Anub'Rekhan.
  • The Scarab Lord's voice lines are a reference to the Barny's Scarab Lord Adventures series on YouTube, directly quoting Barny Beekeeper in the final episode of the tetralogy.
