* Parodied in ''ScaryMovie 2'', when Cindy is being chased by a skeleton, only to be reprimanded by Brenda for being afraid of a skeleton. To illustrate her point, Brenda pulls the skeleton apart and reassembles him badly.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': In the Thriller Bark arc, the Straw Hats meet Brook, who's eaten a Devil Fruit that lets him come back to life once. But due to the fog in the area he was in, he got lost on his way back to his mortal body. By the time he found it, it was nothing but bones. Although initially freaked out by his own appearance, he eventually adapted and grew a habit of making {{pun}}s about it. Constantly. He also came to discover that [[CursedWithAwesome being a skeleton has surprising advantages over being made of flesh]], such as making him a lot faster and lighter.

* Horrorman and Horako from ''{{Franchise/Anpanman}}''. Horrorman's a pretty nice guy (at least, [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor when he's on the heroes' side]]) and Horako's a sweet little girl...even though her imagination has a tendency to go over the top [[spoiler: and she's actually a sea princess]].

(Unfortunately, the card game equivalents of these cards are pretty bad.)

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsI'' features several regular human skeletons wielding swords and shields, as well as skeletons that or intertwined with spiked carriage wheels that will run you down at any opportunity. The Tomb of the Giants also features massive quadruped but vaguely humanoid skeletons, and Gravelord Nito is a skeleton ''made'' of other skeletons and wielding a sword made from them.

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' brings back the bones one last time and manages to one-up every skeleton in the series to this point by giving us High Lord Wolnir, a skeleton king roughly ''five stories tall'' with a skull the size of a modest apartment and the ability to summon smaller skeletons to distract you (although he's just as likely to wipe them out with his massive swings as you are with a sword).

** ''VideoGame/Bloodborne'' doesn't have many skeletons (blood's a pretty huge thing and skeletons are often lacking in it), but there is Darkbeast Paarl, who is an ''electric wolf skeleton the size of a bus''.

* The skeletons in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' aren't that tough (unless you run into them [[BeefGate before you're ready]]). However, nearby necromancers (which fortunately don't respawn if you rest at a bonfire) will revive them if they aren't slain with a Divine weapon. The ''giant'' skeletons are much tougher but fortunately don't revive immediately like their weaker cousins. And then there's the ''Bonewheel'' skeletons that love to run you over and stun-lock you to death if you're wearing light armor.
** There's also Gravelord Nito, the first of the dead and keeper of the a Lord Soul. He's literally ''made'' of skeletons.

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' sees the return of the sword-and-board and Bonewheel skeletons, as well as a trio of bosses called the Skeleton Lords. True to their title, they sit on thrones made of bones and wield weapons made of them, and upon death they summon a bunch of skeletons of various types. There's also a variety of skeleton that won't die until you kill the necromancer that is reviving them.

** The original and sequel both have [[FanSpeak skellies]] as foes, but you couldn't summon any in the original.

** The original and sequel both have [[FanSpeak skellies]] as foes, but you couldn't summon any in the original. The original also have an unique enemy called Leoric the Skeleton King, basically a skeleton with a hugeass sword and a crown in his head, which can be encountered in the game or skipped out depending on how the game started. He proves popular enough that Blizzard expanded and fleshed out his backstory from merely 'king fallen into madness' into some sort of tragic figure (while still a mad king) linked with one of the original heroes. He also becomes the model of a hero in ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' until he changed into Wraith King (see below for more), and he also returns for a first stage mandatory boss fight for [[VideoGame/{{Diablo III}} the third game]], switching his huge sword to a huge mace, and then he carried his last appearance in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''
