The Were-Panther Skeleton, also known as Wereskeleton, is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is the reanimated skeleton of a Were-Panther.


Were-Panther Skeletons are the reanimated remains of a Were-Panther. These enemies have appeared in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Castlevania: Dracula X and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

There are two types:

Beast type
This type moves in all fours like an animal and charges at the player when approached. It behaves and attacks almost identical to a Black Panther.
Humanoid type
This type paces back and forth in an upright stance. When approached, it extends its neck and lashes it in a whip-like manner. After a while, it will open its rib cage and send out a large barrage of bones in an arcing pattern that are harmful to the touch.

A special beast type variant, appropriately called Skeleton Beast, appears in the Saturn port of Symphony of the Night. It will follow its undead master, the Skeleton Breeder, with his commands and will attack anyone who tries to hurt him (similar to the Dead Mate). This variant is called Wolf Skeleton in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness and is described as the corpse of a Fenrir revived as a zombie. It can hide inside its own shadow and move freely underground until it leaps out to attack.
