Skeleton Spears are enemies in the Castlevania series.
Skeletons that wield a variety of types of spears. The first skeleton spears that appeared in the series rode on rafts in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and attempted to knock the player off of their own raft. They later wielded halberds (or naginatas) in Symphony of the Night and other games.
Called Raft Skeletons in this game and for a good reason. Should the player take their chances and jump onto one of the logs being carried by the current below on the second section of Stage 4', they will find themselves traveling on the river's rapids while being chased by these enemies in an attempt to knock them down their ride, although mostly being just a distraction to make them miss the only opportunity to jump to safe ground at the end of the river.

The Skeleton Diver is a boss version of the Skeleton Spear that appears in Curse of Darkness. It is a skeleton who wields a trident and owns a skeletal fish. They guard the Bird-Type Innocent Devil near the castle's entrance, which is covered by water at that point in the game.
