Not to be confused with the Boss, Skeletron.

Skeletons are enemies that spawn in the Cavern layer. They follow the Fighter AI and can open doors. Unlike Zombies, they do not require a Blood Moon to do so.

In Expert modeDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version, certain Skeletons throw bones which deal 2× their base melee damage. The damage is further multiplied by 2 due Expert's general damage enhancers, resulting in a damage 4 times the base value.
