The Skeleton (スケルトン, Sukeruton?) is a recurring enemy in the Final Fantasy series, appearing since the first game. Gaunt, leering, and most often brandishing bone weapons, Skeletons are one of the most common undead enemies. They usually are rather weak enemies and appear in large groups. Recurring skeleton varieties include Bloodbones and Shadow. Final Fantasy VIII also has a similar enemy called Forbidden.

Skeletons are a genus in the Undead family.
Skeletons are a new enemy type introduced in the game. They appear in the underground Temple Ruins in the Dead Dunes and are the focus of a quest to seek out and eliminate them all. Skeletons and their Ω variant use an ability called Blood Sword to heal themselves while damaging their opponents.
Skeletons are common daemons fought in the Steyliff Grove in Cleigne as well as during the Party of Three Main Quest. Additionally, tougher, higher level Skeletons can be fought in the Fociaugh Hollow maze in Duscae and the Glacial Grotto maze in Cleigne in chapter 15.
Skeletons will block the last hit in Regis's combos unless their guard is opened beforehand with a Shield Bash (/). Red skeletons will automatically block any Strong Slashes (/) and counter Quick Slashes (/).
Skeletons seem to have the appearance of a undead human-animal hybrid, with a human's form and beast-like horns. They are weak to Fire and Holy elements.
