The Skellobait is an enemy in Super Paper Mario originating in The Underwhere. It is a blue, limbless skeleton, with only the ribs and the head intact. The Skellobait is dropped by Skellobombers, so they are rarely, if ever, seen without one. It crawls around on the ground, and will blow freezing breath at Mario, Luigi, Peach or Bowser if it sees one of them.
