—Skeleton Zombie's splash screen
His appearance and ability are based on the Dry Bones, an enemy from the Super Mario franchise, being skeletal versions of enemies that can revive themselves from being defeated after a short period of time.
Like with Actor Zombie, he becomes a obstacle after being defeated, not only allowing other zombies to proceed but also reviving himself if not destroyed in time. Blockbuster is advised against him, as Blockbuster will prioritize Skeleton Zombie when he becomes an obstacle as well as doing extra Shatter damage. Bonk Choy and Fire Peashooter also work well against Skeleton Zombie due to their area damage.
- His skull is carried by Actor Zombie, this could be either for decoration purposes or for foreshadowing Skeleton Zombie might be encountered by the player.
