The skeleton squire, also known as BoneRider, is an undead monster that appears in Dragon Quest VII.

Characteristics[edit]

Skeleton squires are spooky undead nobles riding atop of mad, manic hellish horses. They carry a silver lance that they use to stab at foes and a sparkly silver shield to match. They wear an overly extravagant plumed hat on top of their powdered wig to hide their boney bald heads and wear glorious green cloaks with bright orange boots and bracers. Their sturdy steeds are brown with preposterous purple manes. Despite their similarities in appearance to grim riders, they are distinct and dangerous monsters with subtle differences.

The party fights a boss version of the skeleton squire in Al-Balad. It attacks the party while exploring the Temple Palace. It should cause no trouble for a moderately leveled party.

Trivia[edit]

In the PS1 version of Dragon Quest VII, the BoneRider has a Quick Joke, "It's just BoneRider," a reference to a certain sexual act.
