Original Castlevania lore


The Skeleton Monkey (called Headhunter Bat in Japan) is an enemy in Castlevania: Bloodlines.


The Skeleton Monkey, as its name implies, is a monkey-like skeleton initially found hanging upside-down from trees in wait for prey.

When approached or attacked, it will swing down and swipe with the sickle-like appendages it has for hands. Its extensible lower body allows it to reach considerable distances, slowly returning to its initial position in a spiraling manner after each attack.

It boasts little health, however, and a few hits are usually enough to put it down.
