There are a total of 45 playable characters in Chrono Cross, each with their own special methods for recruiting them. Some are more difficult to find than others, however, requiring you to collect special items hidden throughout the world. One character who falls into that category is a lively skeleton named Skelly, and he needs your assistance finding his bones. Fortunately, we're here to help—here are all Skelly bones locations in Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition.
Where to find Skelly's bones in Chrono Cross
Skelly has lost most of his memories as a result of his falling to pieces, and he needs your help with putting himself back together again. As you may have guessed, this task is a bit easier said than done—his missing bones have been scattered throughout the world, meaning it's your job to hunt them down and reassemble him. Skelly's six bone locations are as follows:
- Heavy Skull
- The first piece to be found is the Heavy Skull in Fossil Valley (Another World). Tell the soldiers you're the exorcist they've been waiting for, then investigate the nearby ghostly sounds to find this piece of Skelly.
- Angry Scapula
- The second piece of Skelly can be found within a small cave behind a waterfall in the Shadow Forest (Another World). This is the same cave where Nikki could be found if you recruited him earlier on.
- Pelvic Bone
- Skelly's third piece can be found by speaking with the trader at the docks in Guldove (Another World).
- Sturdy Ribs
- Skelly's ribs can be found by speaking with one of the explorers at Water Dragon Isle (Another World).
- Good Backbone
- This piece of Skelly can be found in the Hydra Marsh (Another World), lying on the ground within a small cave emanating green light. To reach this piece of Skelly, first, speak with the dwarf at Orlha's bar in Guldove (Another World) to receive the Key Item Green Tinkler. Using this item will allow you to bypass the mutated plants within the marsh.
- Mixed Bones
- The last bits of Skelly can be found on the Isle of the Damned (Another World). Check within the cave in the top-right section of the first screen to find a pile of bones lying on the ground.
How to recruit Skelly in Chrono Cross
Once all six pieces of Skelly have been found, make your way to Termina (Another World). Head up the stairs toward the statue of General Viper, then enter the house on the right to find an elderly lady sitting in a chair. Speak with her to initiate a short cutscene in which Skelly enters the house and reunites with his grandmother, then leave the house once the cutscene has ended. Enter the house once more, then speak with Skelly and he'll offer to join your party, becoming a playable character in the process!
