Top 10 Fictional Skeleton Characters


The Top Ten

1 The Grim Reaper

He would take your souls dude!

2 Papyrus (Undertale) Papyrus (Undertale) Papyrus is a character from the 2015 game Undertale, made by Toby Fox. He is the Younger brother of Sans the skeleton, royal guard in training, and a sentry in the town of Snowdin. Opposite to his brother, papyrus is active, loud, and full of himself; but in an endearing way. Papyrus means to become more.

Papyrus is perfection

Jack Skellington, Papyrus, and Skeletor are some of my favorite characters in general. I guess I'm biased towards skeletons. I need help.

Papyrus should be (in my opinion) be 1st because he is the only skeleton of the top 5 who doesn't scare or kill people.

He's awesome!
