Not to be confused with Bomb Skeleton.

The Skeleton Bomber (スケルトンボマー Sukeruton Bomā?) is an enemy in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. It is a skeleton that throws firebombs in an arc.


The Skeleton Bomber is the first enemy encountered in the game. Much like any basic Skeleton, it paces back and forth, and occasionally throws a bomb in an arc. These projectiles only explode on contact and inflict Fire damage in a small radius.

Even though they are one of the weakest enemies in the game, some care should be taken when approaching them (especially if they are standing on a higher ledge), as they often throw their bombs even before they are onscreen.

They have a very high chance of dropping the Salamander card (20%), which is likely the first DSS card the player will obtain in the game, and which allows combinations imbued with the Fire element.
