A skeleton is a common undead hostile mob found in all levels in Minecraft Dungeons except for the Obsidian Pinnacle, Frosted Fjord, and all Flames of the Nether levels except for Soul Sand Valley.

Spawning[]

Skeletons also spawn when night falls, regardless of location, when at least one player dies in multiplayer.

Appearance[]

Skeletons in Minecraft Dungeons are different in color from their original counterparts, with their bones being marble-colored and parts near its legs or joints being darker.

Behavior[]

Skeletons harm the player by shooting arrows from bows at a distance. They flee when the player gets near.

Unlike base game counterpart, they shooting arrows normally underwater without being slowed down by water.

Skeletons have a rare behavior when idle, in which they spin their skull rapidly as if playing their heads. They have a sound file named "novelty spin" that plays when this behavior occurs. They have 10% more HP than the zombie but their damage is less than half.
