In-Game Description in Pac-Man World 2
"Think skeletons are scary in real life? Try these ones on for size. They don't have anything to fear, because they don't have a brain!"
- In both Pac-Man World Games, the Sword Skeleton strikes a pose before he attacks. This makes it easier to kill them.
- They appear briefly in Pac-Man World Rally, where they are seen hanging up on a wall in the track called Pirate Cove.
