Skulls are scary. especially when they fly around with glowing eyes and try to kill you. These Class I Swarmers are drawn strangely but exclusively to skulls, real or imitation.

Manifestation Points:Edit

Flyings Skulls are found throughout the game. They appear in the Museum level as well as the Lost Island level. In addition, any encounter with Cultist Summoners will feature the Flying Skulls as those ghosts are able to generate an unlimited supply of them until captured.

  • Category: Class 4 Psychokinetic Manipulation Event
  • Abilities: Flying Ram

Tobin's SummaryEdit

More powerful spectral manifestations have the ability to not only levitate objects, but also to imbue them with a temporary sense of life. This is usually done to effigies and statues with discernible body parts, but more exotic variants have occurred based on the proclivities of the animator. These creations are usually easy to disrupt and are only a serious threat in large quantities.

Egon's Notes:Edit

Skulls seem like a bit of a cliche to use as a weapon, but they seem to function fairly efficiently as an animated projectile. The hard frontal bone can withstand pretty serious impact before cracking.

Ray's Tips:Edit

Don't lose your nerve, these aren't nearly as bad as they look. Use the Shock Blast to blast them out of the sky with ease.

Supplemental DataEdit

The art page can be found in the Museum, during the "Stumbling Along the Trail..." section. It is hidden in a very small animal statue at the top of the stairs, just after the skull room en route to the Egyptian section.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of SlimeEdit

The Flying Skulls come in all three colored auras. They attack in swarms.
