The Skeleton(スケルトン, Sukeruton?) is a recurring enemy in the Final Fantasy series, appearing since the first game. Gaunt, leering, and most often brandishing bone weapons, Skeletons are one of the most common undead enemies. They usually are rather weak enemies and appear in large groups. Recurring skeleton varieties include Bloodbones and Shadow.
Skeletons are a new enemy type introduced in the game. They appear in the underground Temple Ruins in the Dead Dunes and are the focus of a quest to seek out and eliminate them all. Skeletons and their Ω variant use an ability called Blood Sword to heal themselves while damaging their opponents.
Skeletons are common daemons fought in the Steyliff Grove in Cleigne as well as during the Party of ThreeMain Quest. Additionally, tougher, higher level Skeletons can be fought in the Fociaugh Hollow maze in Duscae and the Glacial Grotto maze in Cleigne in chapter 15.
Several versions of Skeletons appear in this game, the first being in the Bone Dungeon, and later as Red Bones and Skuldiers. They are all weak to the Holy element and generally are not threatening, save for Skuldiers which can use Doom Reverb to instantly kill a party member.
Skeleton is an enemy family. There is also an enemy that goes by that name. There are six Skeleton sprites, and five known enemies. Skull Warrior only appears in the Challenge Dungeons in the original release, while Skeleton also appears in a Challenge Dungeon but possibly also appears elsewhere. There's another sprite unaccounted for but that's probably dummied.
[view·edit·purge]A skeleton is a type of physically manifested undead often found in fantasy, gothic and horror fiction, and mythical art. Most are human skeletons, but they can also be from any creature or race found on Earth or in the fantasy world.
