From Muppet Wiki

A skeleton is a framework that supports a body. In animals, a skeleton is made up of bones. The human skeleton has come to represent an image macabre in nature when pertained to popular culture.

A human skeleton lives inside Count von Count's castle, attached the wall. It appears in the framing sequence of Elmo Says BOO!, identified by Count von Count as the same fellow who sang "Bones" with him.

Another skeleton appears to briefly sing with Alice Cooper in "Welcome to My Nightmare" from episode 307 of The Muppet Show.

Skeletons

Skeletons are so common throughout Norrath, it's pretty wasteful to spend much time studying them. The good thing about skeletons, though, is that they are so numerous that studying them is a breeze.

"Skeletons" by Trinni Mellosius -- Taking them apart and putting them together.

If there's a graveyard, there'll be skeletons. The question is, what kind? The best way to figure out what you'll encounter in any given graveyard is to look at what's alive in the area. That's because skeletons are simply reanimated dead. That puts skeletons into the category known as "undead," which includes creatures such as ghosts, ghouls and zombies.

Pretty much every living creature has a skeleton. The nice thing about skeletons is that you can see everything you need to know about your enemy at a glance. Is it carrying a concealed weapon? That's mighty hard to do when you don't have any skin to hide it behind!

Let's take a look at orc skeletons as an example. Once you are familiar with skeletons, you'll know about the living orcs, too. Seeing them from the inside out gives you the advantage in battle -- you will already know where the living orcs are vulnerable and tender.

First, look at the orc skeleton's skull. It is thicker at the front top than it is on the temples or at the back. That means you'll want to attack them from the side whenever possible to knock them unconscious. Although...it's hard to say that an undead creature actually has a conscious state even without you coshing it on the head.

The skeleton's neck is thin and much more vulnerable to a slashing attack. This is not always true of living creatures which may protect their soft fleshy bits with studded collars and coifs. The motto for the novice hunter is: look before you slash. If it's covered, see what is left wide-open, and redirect your attack appropriately.

Many skeletons wield the same weaponry as they would in life. If the animated undead was a magic user, you can be assured that its skeletal counterpart is also a magic user. In this case, it's handy to study the living creature instead to better know what damage skeletal creature is capable of doing.

For the most part, skeletons are fairly solitary. They will however band together from their separate funereal plots to do whatever thing a particular sorcery has called them to life to do. Or undead. It's hard to know what to call them since they are clearly not alive, but aren't necessarily dead!

Occasionally, skeletons are found beyond graveyards. You can find them haunting areas where they existed in life. For example, you can see any number of skeletons in places like Stormhold. These skeletons are likely bound to the last place their living self remembers and need to be re-killed in order to die. Except they're already dead, which means you can't kill them. Hmm. Anyway.

When you come across a skeleton and you don't recognize what sort of creature it might once have been, imagine it covered in fat. Often, we're surprised by how scrawny a skeleton is and forget that something like a giant may be big in the bone department, but lack some of the width its layer of skin and fat would cover. Keep in mind that not everything has a skeleton. You'd feel pretty foolish telling someone you were fighting a Coldwind octopus skeleton, now, wouldn't you?

That's all I know about skeletons. Hopefully, you'll find this information useful. If not, go do your own study on skeletons. It'll be easy; they're everywhere!

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Skeleton article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Skeletons are undead monsters found in various locations across RuneScape. Being an undead monster, it is highly vulnerable to the Crumble Undead spell. It is also weak against crush attacks. A Salve amulet (e) provides considerable boosts to Strength and accuracy against the undead Skeletons. Most follow the god Zamorak, but not all. Giant skeletons are found in at least two locations. Level 80 giant skeletons are found in the Shadow Dungeon, which is accessible with a Ring of visibility during and after the Desert Treasure quest. Level 100 giant skeletons are found in the Lair of Tarn Razorlor (dungeon), which is accessible during and after The Lair of Tarn Razorlor miniquest. The examine text for the level 100 asks the question whether this creature is a 'giant skeleton' or a 'skeleton of a giant', suggesting this undead creature may originate from human or giant remains. (However, the size of creature suggests 'giant skeleton' is the case, as it is smaller than any known giant.)

Level 22 Skeleton guards are guards players can purchase for the Dungeon in their Player-owned house.

While doing The Restless Ghost quest, a level 13 Skeleton warlock will appear when the player picks up the ghost's skull. It has 18 hitpoints and a max hit of 2. Also, a mysterious skeleton is said to have been spotted around RuneScape before the 2008 Hallowe'en event.

Note: Just like most monsters in the Wilderness, all skeletons throughout the Wilderness are Aggressive to all players, regardless of level.

Slayer alternatives

Main article: Slayer

When skeletons are given as a slayer task, besides skeletons and giant skeletons, most creatures with 'skeleton' or 'skeletal' in their names can be slain for the assignment. These include:

Skeleton guards in the dungeons of player-owned houses, however, cannot be included in a skeleton slayer task.

Habitats

A spinning skeleton.

Location by combat level

Note: This table may be incomplete, as skeletons appear in very many places. Some locations are in members' areas, require quests to enter, require the ability to enter a guild, etc., so consider checking the location's description before going there to hunt skeletons.
Skeleton level Location
13 Wizards' Tower basement, Restless ghost quest only
21 Edgeville Dungeon, Varrock Sewers
22 Crandor and Karamja Dungeon, Digsite Dungeon, Draynor Manor, Draynor Sewers, Edgeville Dungeon, Melzar's Maze, Ogre Enclave, Taverley Dungeon, Wilderness levels 1-6 north of Edgeville
25 Crandor, Crandor and Karamja Dungeon, Draynor Sewers, Edgeville Dungeon, Steel MineTaverley Dungeon, Varrock Sewers , Wilderness Agility Course

42 Lair of Tarn Razorlor (dungeon)
45 Crandor and Karamja Dungeon, Edgeville Dungeon in low-level Wilderness, Temple of Ikov (dungeon), Waterfall Dungeon, Yanille Agility dungeon

142 Ape Atoll Dungeon (Skeleton appears to that of a monkey or ape)

Many skeleton locations are far from banks. For players wishing to slay skeletons and bank their drops, consider the following:

  • Low-level skeletons - The Draynor Sewers are moderately close to the Draynor Village bank.
  • Medium/high-level skeletons
    • The Lair of Tarn Razorlor (dungeon) has a banker. However, using this dungeon requires the Haunted Mine quest, The Lair of Tarn Razorlor miniquest, and a 100 coin payment to the banker for each access to the bank.
    • The skeleton cave in the Chaos Tunnels is easily accessed from entrance #1 to tunnels and is thus moderately close to the Edgeville bank. However, care should be taken in that entrance #1 is in low-level Wilderness and also enters the cave with rather dangerous Gargoyles. Also, the tunnels are a multiway combat area, and aggressive Zombies in the cave with the skeletons may interfere with skeleton hunting.

Also, player looking for good drops from skeletons should instead consider slaying Skeletal Hands in the Meiyerditch Dungeon.

Champions' Challenge

Skeletons are one of the 'races' who have lesser champions in the Champions' Challenge minigame. To fight the Skeleton Champion, the player must kill skeletons until one drops a Champion scroll, which is a very rare drop.

Trivia

  • The level 25 skeletons have 17 hp, 12 less than the level 22 skeletons with 29 hp
  • As of 9 November 2009, various skeletons' combat animations and sounds have been reworked.
  • The level 45 skeletons in the Crandor and Karamja Dungeon seem taller than the other skeletons.
