Skeleton

Who needs muscles, skin, or even eyeballs? Skeletons get by with just the bones on their back, just as deadly as more fleshy foes.

Skeletons need to wear very elaborate costumes during Halloween, or else people think they are dressing up as skeletons.

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, Console, and Mobile Versions, certain Skeletons throw bones which deal 2× their base melee damage. The damage is further multiplied by 2 due to Expert's general damage enhancers, resulting in a damage 4 times the base value.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Skeletons appear in more than 50 different forms in the game:
  • The Astronaut Skeleton is misspelled as "Astonaut Skeleton" in the game code.
  • The original Skeleton's head sprite remains used in the game for the Skull Lantern item.
  • The Carton of Milk drop is probably an allusion to the common statement that milk is good for the bones.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.5: Regular, Headache, Misassembled, and Pantless Skeleton sprites updated.
  • Desktop 1.2:
    • Headache Skeleton, Misassembled Skeleton and Pantless Skeleton variants introduced.
    • Now has a chance to drop an Ancient Iron Helmet, an Ancient Gold Helmet, a Bone Sword, and/or a Skull.
