The Papyrus Scarab is a craftable accessory that combines the damage and knockback increase of the Hercules Beetle with the minion bonus of the Necromantic Scroll. The damage bonus is only 15%, not 25% as may be expected, but can stack with all other summon-boosting equipment.


  • The Papyrus Scarab's damage and knockback boost does not have any effect on non-minion summons like the Staff of the Frost Hydra.
  • Equipping the Papyrus Scarab, Necromantic Scroll, Hercules Beetle, and Spooky Armor set together will grant a total summon damage increase of 98%, allowing Pygmies, Ravens and the Frost Hydra to do nearly double the amount of damage.
