The Flying Skull, or Phantom Skull, is one of several types of ghostly skulls that appears in the Castlevania series.


This type of flying skull hovers for a few seconds, clacks its jaws, and then moves slowly toward the player in a straight line, and then hovers stationary again.

The Giant Ghost is similar to a giant version of this enemy.
