"Big-boned from an early age, the Giant Skeleton was always destined to blow up more than just walls. His massive bomb damages everything around him after he is destroyed."
Giant Skeleton is an Elixir temporary troop that is usually available on Halloween.
The Giant Skeleton is based on the Clash Royale card with the same name.
This troop consists of a giant skeleton carrying a huge bomb.
He looks similar to the Wall Breaker, however, he is much bigger and doesn't commit suicide by exploding the bomb. Instead, he is a melee troop that attacks buildings and upon death drops a very powerful giant bomb on the village.
Another difference from the Wall Breaker is the preferred target. The Wall Breaker has a preferred target of walls, causing extra damage to them. The Giant Skeleton has a preferred target of defenses.
With moderate hitpoints and will survive for a while on battles. However, he makes very little damage. The huge bomb that he drops when killed is where he shows his true value.
The Giant Skeleton was available on the game three times:
- 2017 to celebrate Halloween
- 12/28/17 until 1/3/18 during the "Jack Skellingboom"
- 2018 to Celebrate Halloween
