The Skelerang, also known as Skeleton Boomerang, is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is a skeletons that expertly hurls boomerangs.


Skelerangs are stationary skeletons that attack from a distance by throwing two boomerangs, one from each hand. These boomerangs are fast, can pass through floors and walls, and can be difficult to avoid in areas with limited maneuverability. They sometimes can deal a good amount of damage. In some games, the boomerangs cannot be destroyed by attacking them, but may be destroyed by killing the actual skeleton that threw them.

The skeletons have no close range attack and cannot move, so when the player stands directly in front of them, they will crouch and cower in fear.
