For the similarly named monster with only one set of arms, see Skeleton swordsman (IV)

The Skeleton swordsman (がいこつけんし Skeleton swordsman) is a monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation.

Characteristics[edit]

A sextuple-wielding menace, the skeleton swordsman engages in the unscrupulous act of skeleton modification by augmenting itself with the amputated limbs of its fallen enemies. Having gained newfound dexterity, it puts it to devastating effect by cutting the whole party's defense in half with Kasap before eviscerating an unlucky sucker all in one turn.
