Skeletons are undead monsters found in various locations across RuneScape, often in graveyards and dungeons. Being an undead monster, it is weak to Crumble Undead and the Salve amulet. It is also weak against crush attacks.

While doing The Restless Ghost quest, a level 13 skeleton will appear when the player picks up the ghost's skull.

Players can purchase level 22 skeleton guards for their dungeon in their player-owned house. However, they do not contribute towards a slayer assignment.

Trivia

  • The level 45 skeletons in the Crandor and Karamja Dungeon, just outside of Elvarg's lair, seem taller than the other skeletons and appear to be the same size as giant skeletons.
  • Upon release, the skeletons in the Barrows crypts did not drop the Skeleton champion scroll. This was changed a few years later.
  • Upon opening a wardrobe, there is a 1/21 chance of a non-interactable skeleton appearing inside.[1] This is a reference to a common idiom. If there is a skeleton inside the wardrobe, searching the wardrobe yields the text "Eek! There's a skeleton in there."
  • There are level 35 skeletons in the Wrath altar - they cannot be attacked, and examining them gives the text "Even in death he still fights." While they have swords, they use the same attack animation as zombies.
