In the video game, manga and anime Edit

In the Mini 4WD Shining Scorpion Let's & Go!, the player received the Shining Scorpion from Dr. Tsuchiya and Tesshin Akada during his visit on Sagami model shop.

In the anime adaptation of Let's & Go! series, Tesshin made not one but two Shinning Scorpions; the first one was given to the his assistant Da San Yuan who then passed down to his grandson Huang, while the other one was given to Takeshi Sugiyama (the future Mini 4WD Fighter) 10 years prior. Fighter quickly recognized the design of Shining Scorpion that Makoto (Retsu and Go's friend) found on the internet because he still owns the Shining Scorpion.

The Shining Scorpion is also the first car to have the ZMC-made body. According to Dr. Tsuchiya, Tesshin had said before that this car is a decade too soon to be ready for the race scene. The car has a special ability where the car's highlight color will change at certain speeds until the car is stopped.

In Power WGP2 video game, the rest of the Light Scorpion team switched from their Kong Long in the first World Grand Prix to a variation of the Shining Scorpion named Shining Dragon, which is simply a green palette swap of the Shining Scorpion.
