The Skeleton Archer is an enemy in the Castlevania series. They are skeletons armed with bows, which they use to fire arrows straight ahead. They are normally stationary but some varieties will move a bit and take aim at a different location.


Akumajō Dracula: The ArcadeEdit

Skeleton Archers set up positions in the Ruins of Akumajō Dracula: The Arcade and are also placed in many other areas. Only long-ranged weapons can destroy them.
