SkeleTONS: nearly every bony bastard in the gaming universe

Need even more? Welcome to the last page, aka the late arrivals that came to our attention too late to get a full-sized screen. But who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired by one of these late bloomers and change your entire Halloween costume. Yes, these are the almost interesting skeletons of gaming:


Yes, that does appear to be Donkey Kong’s skeleton.

Would you look at that – we’re on the last page and not one single boner/boning joke in the whole article. See internet, we’re more than boobs and cheap laughs.

    what about in the original super smash brothers. When you were shocked by Pikachu, you were a pretty awesome looking skeleton

    Time Splitters is, in my opinion, the best, no second best, multiplayer game the Cube has to offer. Second after SSB:Melee. It has more than skeletons. It's got all sorts of random-ass characters than you can fire a minigun at. ReCapcha: Economy Gold.........WHAT?!?

    The 9th Skeleton on The First Entry, Street Fighter II, is Chun-Li, I think, look at the black area's Chunky-Thunder Thighs

    When I was younger, the only thing I remember about playing Uninvited is the ghost killing me. Oh, and nice coverage of the CV skeletons. Classic.

    No Devil May Cry-ish skeleton?
  • vincenzo - November 1, 2008 3:46 p.m.

  • drprofessor - November 1, 2008 5:35 p.m.

    Nice list. I played Astyanax and have a vague ability to say it properly lol. Was also fun identifying all those street fighter characters by there posture and skeleton.

    @ ElkRider1 Murray is just a floating skull from what I remember. This was full skeletons. However, I do indeed now have a folder full of skulls for another day...

  • SandroTheMaster - November 5, 2008 3:37 a.m.

    You know what? I'm mad, GR whored all skeletons from boring as hell JRPGs and left most of the big names in western PC RPGs out cold.
