For the barrel-throwing skeleton, see Skeleton Ape.

The Barrel Skeleton (unofficial name) is an enemy in Castlevania: Bloodlines.


Barrel Skeletons only appear in the first section of the Munitions Factory stage. They hide inside of metal drums and quickly burst out hurling a bone in an arcing pattern. They can only be damaged as they peek out of their hideouts, although a single strike is all that's required in order to put them down.

While not really being a threat by themselves, they can become quite bothersome if the player lets the screen to populate with all the myriad of other Skeletons that also wage combat in the areas they appear in.
