The Bone Ark is a single Bone Pillar head supported by a palanquin and carried around by two skeleton priests. Much like regular Bone Pillars, it attacks primarily through the use of projectiles; however, unlike the former, it can aim at any angle and the projectiles will explode into a highly dangerous electrical field capable of inflicting heavy damage.
When destroyed, the skeleton carriers will run away with their arms flailing wildly. This may be in glee to be free of the Bone Ark or simply out of fear of the player. On the other hand, if one of the priests is dealt with first, the ark will be slowed down. If both priests are killed, then the head will fall to the ground and remain stationary, although still being able to aim an shoot. Oddly enough, when destroyed, the Bone Ark's neck will continue moving.
Bone Arks appear in the Subterranean Hell. They are a bit difficult to destroy, and therefore, to get their soul. Their soul, aptly called First Class, enables Soma to be carried on the Bone Ark as he sits on top of the skeleton head itself. It is one of several ways to circumvent the flooded, spiked room located on the lowermost sections of the Subterranean Hell, which eventually leads to the Gold Ring. When cast, Soma will be transported by the skeleton priests across all obstacles and be put down on the other end.
