Skeleton Archers are skeletons armed with bows, which they use to fire arrows straight ahead. They are normally stationary but some varieties will move a bit and take aim at a different location.


Castlevania: The ArcadeEdit

Skeleton Archers set up positions in the Ruins of Castlevania: The Arcade and are also placed in many other areas. Only long-ranged weapons can destroy them.
