* A [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/mr-bones-wild-ride somewhat famous]] game of ''RollerCoasterTycoon 2'' had a top hatted skeleton as the mascot of "Mr. Bones' Wild Ride", a VideoGameCrueltyPotential-driven roller coaster so long it became [[AndIMustScream a thing of horror.]] Naturally, it has become associated with the "Spooky Scary Skeletons" song and the "2spooky" meme.

* ''BaldursGate'' had enemy skeletons, but you could also summon your own with the proper spell, much like the aforementioned ''Diablo II''.
** The sequel, ''Baldur's Gate II'', especially with ''Throne of Bhaal'', features several floating skulls, which are infinitely more nasty than their full-bodied counterparts.

* Two of the major Undead faction unit types in ''BattleForWesnoth'' are skeletons, one with an axe and the other with a bow. They have very high resists to Pierce, Cold, and Blade damage types, but are very vulnerable to Impact, Fire, and Arcane damage. They can also move through and hide in deep water, and being Undead, are immune to poison and plague attacks. Combat with the Undead typically requires a lopsided unit selection to combat these. They usually serve as basic troops and as bodyguards to GlassCannon Dark Adepts in multiplayer, and are typically spammed by the AI in campaigns. Also, the high-level [[OurLichesAreDifferent Lich]] unit, one of the levelled-up forms of the aforementioned Dark Adept, is skeletal and loses its old human characteristics in exchange for skeleton characteristics.
