LD-002G Scervo, also known simply as Scervo, is a mini-boss from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He is a formidable warrior encountered on the Sandship in the Lanayru Sand Sea. Wielding an over-sized hook and an electrified sword, Scervo stole the Sandship from LD-301N Skipper some time in the past.
Interestingly, unlike the other Ancient Robots (until Scrapper's revival), Scervo is still functioning in the present, which Fi comments on. An upgraded model robot Pirate, Dreadfuse, who looks like Scervo, also seems to still be functioning in the present as well.
After Link finds the first Small Key on the Sandship, he can take it to the locked door on the first floor and make his way outside the ship once more. When he steps onto the plank of the ship, a spiked gate activates behind him, forbidding exit and causing damage when touched. Scervo will then appear at the edge of the plank. In order to defeat Scervo, Link must knock the robot back with enough successful sword strikes until it almost falls off the plank. When Scervo is on the edge, he will make the spiked gate move forward, giving Link less room for error, while dropping his sword. He then pulls out a second sword and the process repeats, with Scervo attacking and defending himself more often. After the second time, Scervo's right arm will break, dropping his sword in the process. The spiked gate moves forward once again. For the third and final phase, Scervo uses his hook with wide swings that can rotate his torso for combination attacks, which compromises his defense but gives him a more forceful attack with which to shove Link back. After repeating the process a third time, the hook breaks and the robot will fall off the plank, exploding. After Scervo's defeat, Link is rewarded with the Bow.

His name seems to be a portmanteau of the words scurvy, a disease that plagued many sailors and pirates due to a lack of fresh fruit on the high seas, and servo, short for servomechanism, a part used in mechanical devices.
