Sun Skeletons are mobs that can be only obtained through mods.


Their overall appearance is the same as a skeleton, but instead of the grayish-white colorless skin they have a red-white skin.


Sun Skeletons can hold a bow like a normal Skeleton, but unlike the vanilla skeleton, sun skeletons shoot burning arrows which will set the player on fire, once they touch him/her, making them very dangerous. They deal 3 damage at non-armed players.


It is the best way to fight sun skeletons with a bow. A diamond sword would be good too. Armor is recommended as sun skeletons deal 3 damage and burn the player.


  • They have 20 more life than skeletons (40 health points).
  • They don't drop anything when killed.
