The General summons a variety of Skeleton Warriors to kill the Hunters, Zoë Nightshade, and Bianca di Angelo, but they chase after Percy instead after getting his smell. Bianca is able to kill one, and later, Nico di Angelo sends the rest to the Underworld before either realizes they are children of Hades.
Nico employs skeletons in rituals to call the spirit of his sister to speak with him.
When trying to escape the Underworld, Nico uses his power over the dead to put the skeletons he sees to sleep. However, this also causes him to become very tired. Near the end of the final battle he and Hades bring an army of skeletons to battle the Titan Army. Later, a group are constructing Nico's new cabin at Camp.
When Zane Obispo, Hondo Obispo, and Brooks arrive at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Flanco, a skeleton guard, lets them into the hero twin’s birthday party and saves the three when Ah-Puch attacks the party.
- With the exception of Atlas' skeleton warriors, most skeletons are not described as anything more than skeletons.
