The skeleton squire is an undead monster that appears in Dragon Quest VII.


Skeleton squires are undead nobles riding on top of mad horses. They carry a silver lance and shield, wear an extravagant plumed hat on top of their powdered wig, and wear green cloaks with orange boots and bracers. Their steeds are brown with purple manes. Despite their similarities in appearance to grim riders, they are distinct monsters with subtle differences.

Monster Meadows quotes:
Women from all around come crying out my name in ecstasy! BoneRider! BoneRider!

Hoi! Want to team up with me and pillage the countryside of its women?

Like my hat? The ladies like the feather!


For one who aspires to look as dashing as I, a jaunty feather in one's hat is indispensable.

Ah, this is the most marvellous weather! I would be worried about sunburn if I had any skin to burn!

If you should feel like a ride around the paddock, feel free to climb astride my steed.


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.
