** The Demilich is a lich who had decided to leave his/her phylactery and use astral projection to learn from other realms. All that's left is a weathered skull or skeletal hand that skill can dish out a world of hurt by [[YourSoulIsMine sucking the souls of anyone who bothers them]] or summoning Demiliches, six inch tall/long magic roaches with SkullForAHead. By the thousands.



** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s skeletons appear in various necromancer hideouts and [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Draugr]] crypts, though they're pretty pathetic overall. A [[{{Dracolich}} skeletal dragon]] appears as an encounter during the College of Winterhold questline.

A [[{{Dracolich}} skeletal dragon]] appears as an encounter during the College of Winterhold questline.questline during the quest "The Staff of Magnus". It's stupidly weak to magic (100% weakness) and flightless so using flame spells should get rid of it easily.

* Used by a [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Faust VII]] in ''ShamanKing'', quite drastically - in his fight against the main character, he insisted it be held on a Western (Christian) graveyard, where the dead were not cremated, so he could use their skeletons to launch a mass attack at our protagonist. On top of it, he carried his deceased wife's skeleton under his clothes and used it as a secret weapon.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'', a magic ring allows its wielder to animate and control an army of skeletons. The ring passes through several hands before Puss in Boots decides the Skeletons are nice, and [[FreeingTheGenie Frees the Genie]], in a sense, by giving the ring to the skeletons and inviting them to live in San Lorenzo.

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsI'' features several regular human skeletons wielding swords and shields, as well as skeletons that are 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.

* Literature/TheBible had the story of Ezekiel and the [[CavalryOfTheDead Valley of the Dry Bones that came to life]] and inspired the [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]] "Dry Bones"/"Dem Bones" song. The trope-naming song is based on a Biblical incident involving Ezekiel, who was told by God to create an army of these things with a prophecy. The Bible is surprisingly metal, in places. It should be noted that the bones are immediately [[MassResurrection given flesh and souls]] during their resurrections, [[[UnbuiltTrope instead of being a literal skeleton army]] like [[Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts those]] created by Creator/RayHarryhausen.
