Super Skeletons are guardian enemies in Shovel Knight. They initially appear as a mixed pile of giant bones but upon player's approach they assemble into a giant skeleton that jumps toward Shovel Knight. After three jumps the Skeleton collapses into a pile of bones once more and the cycle repeats. Super Skeletons possess eight hit points. Shovel Dropping on a Super Skeleton will damage it if its standing up and cause Shovel Knight to bounce.
Two Super Skeletons show up in the Lich Yard and a third shows up in the Lich Yard Encounter stage. There is one more added in the extended area of the Lich Yard in Plague of Shadows.
