Skeletons are the remains of other unknown adventurers who perished before the main character entered the world. They can occasionally be found in the wilderness, aboveground and in Caves, usually around Set Pieces, and often have random loot beside them. When defeated, a Big Tentacle can drop one of these.

Not to be confused with Bones.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Skeletons can be destroyed with a hit from the Hammer for Bone Shards.
