The Skeleton, Bone Fighter, Skull Warrior, Dark Soldier, and Cursed Soldier are enemies that are randomly battled throughout each game in the Golden Sun series. These monsters, resembling animate human skeletons wearing gloves, boots, and loincloths and holding short swords, are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the games.

In Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Skeleton[edit]

Skeleton.png

A Skeleton is a variant with typical bone color that is level 5 in Golden Sun and level 8 in The Lost Age. Skeletons are first battled in Goma Cave, and subsequently in the overworld region of Angara encompassing Bilibin, Kolima, and Kolima Forest, as well as within Kolima Forest itself. Most interestingly, it is even fought in Fuchin Falls Cave, right alongside its stronger counterpart, the Bone Fighter. In The Lost Age, Skeletons are fought in Dehkan Plateau and the south half of Indra's overworld region.

When they first appear in Goma Cave in the first game, they are the strongest monsters both offensively and defensively, but gradually become easier as stronger monsters are introduced to correspond to your building levels and equipment. The appearance of the Skeleton in a dungeon as late as Fuchin Falls Cave, where the Bone Fighter is fought, is bizarre; literally every one of its statistics are far outperformed at that point by literally every other monster in the location. In the second game, it is not quite as statistically high as the Rat Soldier and the Mini-Goblin.

A Skeleton's statistics are as follows:

Bone Fighter[edit]

Bone Fighter.png

A Bone Fighter is a variant with light blue bone color that is level 11 in Golden Sun and level 17 in The Lost Age. Bone Fighters are ideally first battled in Fuchin Falls Cave, and subsequently throughout Mogall Forest, the region of Angara's overworld encompassing the exit to Mogall Forest and the entrance to Lamakan Desert, and the second and third basement levels of Altin Peak. In The Lost Age, Bone Fighters are fought in the lower area of Gondowan's overworld region, as well as both Gabomba Statue and Gabomba Catacombs.

In Fuchin Falls Cave, the Bone Fighter is the "main" monster to focus on in battle, because it has the highest of all statistics when compared to almost all the other monsters, with only the Dirge slightly outspeeding it. With strong offensive and defenses, it is about the toughest random monster fought throughout Mogall Forest as well, ignoring the scripted but optional battles with single Apes. In The Lost Age, it is roughly as strong and sturdy as the other monsters it is fought alongside, but quite a bit slower.

A Bone Fighter's statistics are as follows:

Skull Warrior[edit]

A Skull Warrior is a level 26 variant with violet bone color. Skull Warriors are battled in the road to Babi Lighthouse, Tunnel Ruins, and the later portion of Venus Lighthouse.
