Who dares look upon the king?

The skeleton king is the most famous character in medieval games and I'm really excited about making this. This character will make your game more attractive and get noticed by gamers.

The classic design.

When I begin to design this character, I started with a simple idea: He will be a skeleton with a crown, have some pieces of armors, tattered cloak, and Strip and wearing a king's sword. This classic design makes the gamer feel awesome. Yeah he is skeleton king and everyone knows it, and they quickly got excited about it.

The mechanic design.

Not just the visual, I also think about what will be good for a big boss. As he is a huge body than human, so he does not need to run, he just needs to walk. He can also quickly jump to make a faster approach and make people crazy "he is coming". It increases the better gamer's tensions.

He has 3 different skills and they are different approach so it makes the combat less repeat. The gamer needs to take time to learn to dodge the boss and find a tactic to fight back. it will make the awesome boss battle.

The high quality visual design.

The skeleton king is not just bigger than my normal characters, it also has a bigger number of frames to make the animations look more smooth. 

the details of the animation have been taken carefully. look at the cloak, the strip being very fluid because it made by fabric material. It makes the character so alive!

when the boss jump, it has 3 different states: jump up, middle air and jump down. I also made the cloak and strip being animated to make the character look less still when jumping for a long-range. 

I also make the sitting animation and the throne. The skeleton king is staying in the throne until the player came and he just starting to breathe like a reborn then he jumps to battle! That will make players say wow! 

9 different hand-crafted color schemes

I made more color schemes as I want it to look different than my skeleton warriors. The boss should look different to make the gamer feel less repeat or lazy work. 

Each color schemes have a different theme and it will provide more choice for creator so he can create a different skeleton king for his game. With upcoming quality effects, I'm sure you can create your own skeleton king with different effects and feelings!

Pack Features

  • 13 animations with 63 frames.
  • Fire effects for cast ability.
  • 9 different color schemes.
  • 10 different color thrones.
  • character size 64px.
  • All separate sprites png files so it is very easy to import to any engine.

Used this badass as a boss in a game I'm making. Great work, I really love your "grim" fantasy characters like the Skeleton King and the Angel


Amazing asset, I would love if there was an animation from him sitting in the throne to standing up. Keep up the excellent work!
