Mr. Bones, also referred to as skeletons[1][2] or skeleton ghosts,[3] are white skeletal ghosts appearing in Luigi's Mansion and its remake that are similar to Dry Bones. They attack by throwing bones at Luigi. These ghosts have thirty HP. Mr. Bones can also, like all other normal ghosts, be defeated by one of the three Elements. They are the only regular ghosts in the game with legs.

One is first encountered in the Boneyard where it was disturbed by Spooky's barking. It must be defeated in order to capture Spooky. Mr. Bones are also found in the Graveyard and have to be defeated to lure out Bogmire. More Mr. Bones are encountered in the Telephone Room after the blackout.
