Skeleton Flails, also known as Flail Guards, are enemies in the Castlevania series. They are skeletons armed with spiked iron flails.


The Skeleton Flail (called Skeleton Morningstar in Japan) is a skeleton wielding a large flail with a morningstar at the end. It is similar to the Whip Skeleton, which has a morningstar attached at the end of a long whip. The Flail Guard spends much of its time sitting on the ground, but when approached, will stand up, move around slowly, and then cast its flail toward its enemy. The morningstar will spin around at the tip of the rod for a while.

They are a type of Skeleton Chain.
