Skeleton Spiders are enemies in the Castlevania series.


The Skeleton Spider is a monstrosity made entirely of bones which resembles a giant spider. They crawl cautiously back and forth, but will occasionally make charging attacks.

They are resilient creatures which can withstand many hits. When attacked, however, they will be sent a few steps back, allowing the player to attack them repeatedly without giving them chance to retaliate.

Skeleton Spiders may be related to Skull Spiders and Spittle Bones, although they possess a long spine. The ones in Castlevania Chronicles have a giant, humanoid skull whereas the one in Harmony of Dissonance boast a ram skull.

There also exists a variant in this Harmony of Dissonance called Arthro Skeleton, which appears as a hybrid between a human skeleton and a skeletal spider, similar to an Arachne. Its behavior is the same to that of the Skeleton Spider, however it can throw a stream of bones that makes it a larger threat.
