  • Emm i don't know if a skeleton can hold any kind of weapon with stability… i mean they wont have a strong and stable grip because of the missing muscle tissue… But yes if they (BY magic) can, i agree with the spear choice!

  • Also, if you are using a spear, you don't need to worry about blocking most types of weapons. That would be a great thing, since you're not really good at blocking off Attacks as a skeleton

    Zombies = STR fighters
    Skeletons = DEX fighters

  • There is a big hole in your theory on it just has enough magic mussle to move its bones. That is that it would not have enough strength to use any weapon be that a sword or spear. To be able to use a human weapon it would need to have a humans strength.

    As for what weapons you would find a skeleton carrying they would have what ever they where buried with and since vast majority of people are not buried with any weapons at all they would not be armed.

  • That was well argued, I think I have to agree with most of it. Well, all of it really. I suspect much of what you said here applies to wights too.

  • The strength of a skeleton is based on the strength of his magic. You can see this by playing games such Final Fantasy XII. During the game you face skeletons armed with spears. It is pretty rare to face one with a sword in FFXII. And they get more dangerous when they upgrade their magic level. An FFXII skeleton warrior is easy to kill. But a skeleton knight no ! Same thing for a soul in pain skeleton having a huge amount of "mist" level of magic in the world of Ivalice at Final Fantasy XII.

  • I know I'm late to the discussion but, the actual bones of these skeletons are quite weak in comparisons since because they are remains of dead people, the are malnourished, no milk, no calcium, no new and dense bone matrix. They'd be more fragile

  • The best way to defeat a skeleton is usually to kill the necromancer responsible. Disclaimer: as no living sorcerer was responsible, this strategy does not work on Deadites.

  • Is that game Diablo Immorta? Probably won't have as many microtransactions won't it? Otherwise an interesting video very detailed analysis. Basically would be a similar case for zombies and the like, having simple goals where maybe more due to the conjuring element, have sort of an Eren Titan psyche.

  • There are pirate skeletons that captain their own ships, there are skeletons that are necromancers themselves and in Warhammer Fantasy Battles there is even a whole Egypt inspired empire ruled by skeletons. Why are they stil questioning their inteligence?

    Posted July 13, 2020
  • For battlefield use I'd actually give them Roman Legionary gear. For "average" use, I'd bury them a couple inches deep with instructions to attack anything stepping on them, and let their bony claws & numbers resolve it.

  • Best weapons for a Humanoid Skeleton…. depends on the animative magics. I mean they same strength as a man or more? So they have any kind of stamina limit? I mean if they are peak or above human. A long bow would be a reasonable ancient weapon, since they can pull heavier bows and not get tired.

    Posted July 13, 2020
  • Personally I think it is more interesting to imagine that skeletons can use the same force that they could use as a human, so they would be faster and all that. Especially since as others or maybe just JenoPaciano said, I didn't read all the comments, they wouldn't be able to muster any kind of substantial force if they only have as much force as allows them to move at the speed of a human. I'm not sure about whether they would be unable to fatigue though, since possibly the skeleton might have a limited amount of mana to use that either does or doesn't regenerate, and if you then give them huge amounts of weight to handle they might run out of that mana faster and then in a sense fatigue. If they can't fatigue then obviously you'd give them heavy armour, and possibly heavy weapons, though maybe not since there would also be drawbacks to having a heavier weapon, even if you won't fatigue from using it(Maybe a mix, where you have a few skeletons with heavy weapons and some with normally weighted ones). But even if you give them normal human weapons, they'd simply be an army superior to humans in speed and also endurance depending on whether they can fatigue or not. And either way, they would be a logistical dream, no food required, no sleep required, no water required, much more limited effect from weather and probably many other advantages I can't think of.

    And I don't see why you specifically need blunt weapons against skeletons, I mean sure a spear wouldn't be that great since it's mainly for poking and it would be difficult to hit bones, but you could still smash them with it if need be. And a sword could certainly be used to smash the bones, it might not be the greatest for the sword, but neither is using the sword against a human. And a sharp sword might be better at cutting bone, but a blunt sword can still be used as a blunt weapon. And there is always the possibility of hitting with the pommel.

    In the end though I imagine the greatest advantage of a skeleton is still the fact that you can't stab them, and ranged attacks are far less effective. If you have a formation of skeletons fighting against a formation of humans, I imagine it would be very difficult to manage the smashing blows required to destroy the skeleton, and even if you do manage it and maybe destroy an arm or something, unlike a human, a skeleton can simply go on fighting with one arm. Meanwhile the skeletons can perform any of the attacks humans can perform on other humans. So maybe the greatest advantage of a skeleton isn't any specific weapon, but rather simply their superiority as an army in if not every way, then a lot of ways.

  • Spears would be exceptional, think if the skeletons removed, say the right side of their rib bones and created a phalanx like formation. They would be able to make an almost literal wall of spears by going through the people in front of them.

    Posted July 13, 2020
  • I really like that bit about the spear, and the intelligence thing kind of makes sense. If a necromancer is using a hundred-year-old body to do their bidding, anything too complex would probably take a lot of the necromancer's concentration (or at least time). Something that they probably need for themselves at the moment, especially if they're using it on multiple skeletons in a very high-stakes moment, say while fighting. It would be like the difference between hiring someone and saying "go hit that guy," or spending weeks upon months teaching them how to do their job. One of them just takes investment that the necromancer might not have.

  • Skeletons are light. If humman is wearing good armor, the chances he gets to be injured by skeleton is small. Skeleton can not use weight for stronger attack with spear and he attack slower with weighty weapons thats are good to penetrate armor. That low weight is big weaknes.

    Posted July 13, 2020
  • The rule books for just about every fantasy setting rpg day that skeletons have the same strength as a normal living human.

    If you look at how they typically move, you could infer that they have just enough strength to move "normally" but according to the rules, that's not how it works.

    By your logic, a skeleton would be very easy to overpower.

  • i love these videos… trying to realistically think about these things which by nature are impossible therefore infinitely variable…

    i actually agree with spear personally.. spear and maybe a knife as a backup weapon. if the strength ratio is "strong enough to move like a human at its current weight" then having a light weapon for close range would be useful.

    as for skeletal intelligence.. i always consider that its like a programmed energy.. if not directly imprinting a minor soul or spirit, then its more like programming a robot using magic. dont get me wrong tho, the mechanics of magic mean you could literally imprint your own memories and knowledge on the skeleton. at least as much as it can identify friend vs foe and know how to move to achieve its set goals.

    Posted July 13, 2020
  • Before watching the video, I'd just like to say Skellies would use whatever weapon they find. I mean, I'm surprised if the video comes to another conclusion…

    Posted July 13, 2020
  • Point of order. If the magic can adjust a skeletons strength down, it should be able to increase their strength too. Why would you want balsa wood troops when you could have super soldiers?

  • I wish to hear your learned comments on this anime, "Samurai X" and the fighting style of Hajime Saito, who uses a modified Hirazuki called the Gatatsou… Basically he holds the sword parallel to the ground and uses a run and thrust motion. If you could please enlighten us all.
