Skeleton Athletes will run fast toward Nathan until they hit him or a wall, and then they'll crumble. It's not possible to get their drop item if they kill themselves in this manner.
The more rare and hidden Skeleton Medalist also appears in the game, which runs even faster and is harder to kill. It drops the Bear Ring, which enables Nathan to transform into BearTank, who has a completely different move-set. To make matters worse, the Skeleton Medalist also drop the Toy Ring, which does absolutely nothing. It can only be found in the area where Nathan falls at the beginning of the game (there's a breakable wall at the left side and a breakable ceiling inside). To defeat it:
- Break the ceiling inside this secret room.
- Position Nathan at the right edge of the screen.
- Start running to the left, jump and activate the Roc Wing to enter the hole on the ceiling.
- Once at the room above, just execute a double jump before touching the ground and whiplash the medalist.
