List Rules Notable skeleton characters that are undead, animated, or are physically manifested by a curse.

Animated human skeletons have been used as a personification of death since the Middle Ages. From Jack Skellington to Skeletor, the skeleton character is often a type of physically manifested undead found in fantasy, gothic and horror fiction, and mythical art. Despite having no live flesh covering, he or she is still mobile. Most are human skeletons, but they can also be from any creature or race found on Earth or in the fantasy world. The following is a list of some that have gained notoriety in fantasy movies, television, and animated features, with names and images. Sometimes it's as simple as looking the most badass.
Which are powerful, spooky, or even funny? Vote up your favorite skeletons, whether cartoon or live-action, from a movie or TV show or any other media.
