The Skeleton Frisky is an enemy in the Castlevania series. They are skeletons that leap boundlessly in a dark dance of the doomed.


Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

For the dancing spirits, see Ghost Dancer.

Called Ghost Dancer in Symphony of the Night. A mid-level skeleton that appears in Death Wing's Lair. It walks around the stage normally and starts following the player until it comes within close proximity, then it will start performing its leaping attack. It will continue leaping unless the player moves out of range.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

Skeleton Friskies start appearing in the Skeleton Cave and their only attack consists in leaping over Shanoa and land on the other side. This attack can be avoided altogether simply by crouching.

Of note is one room in particular inhabited by seventeen Skeleton Friskies. Since, being skeletons, they are naturally weak to Strike, a couple of hits with a Macir glyph will most likely destroy most of the group. This is very useful in case the player wants to level up a few levels fast.

They are later encountered in the Giant's Dwelling, albeit in lesser numbers.
