The Slinger, also known as Skeleton Rib, is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is a skeleton that attacks by throwing his own ribs.


Slingers are specialized bone-throwing skeletons. They wear a Viking Helmet and throw their own ribs in a low arc. They tend to throw their rib bones at a faster, more consistent pace than normal bone-throwing skeletons.
