In Scooby-Doo (2002), Scrappy is first chronologically seen in a flashback where he bothers the Mystery Inc. crew and starts urinating on Daphne. He wanted to be the leader of the group or he'll leave. He was left at a desert. Since then, he plotted Mystery Inc. to reunite for a big mystery at Spooky Island, where he locked up Emile Mondavarious, the founder of the theme park/resort. He controls a robot version of Emile Mondavarious and wanted to extract Scooby's soul with the Daemon Ritus, making his transformation as Scrappy-Rex complete. He revealed himself as the mastermind. When Shaggy removed the Daemon Ritus from Scrappy's chest, he became weak and was arrested. He was about to say "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling sons of bitches!" before he was cut off.
