Skuller is an enemy appearing in Kirby's Dream Land. It resembles a white, floating skull with two small, yellow lights glowing in its eye sockets. Its perpetually opening and closing mouth contains only three teeth, which are all part of its upper jaw.

Skullers are only encountered in the Extra Game, where they replace Mumbies. Like the enemy they substitute, they are exclusively found in Castle Lololo and the Mt. Dedede section dedicated to it. Skullers either follow a set, wavy path or haunt Kirby, moving faster than Mumbies while doing so.

In the first room following the Lololo Mid-Boss fight in Castle Lololo, four Skullers materialize alongside four Gaspars once Kirby steps close to the door near the beginning of the section. These particular Skullers possess a unique movement pattern, orbiting the door and alternating between closing in on Kirby and gaining distance from him again.

Like Mumbies, Skullers cannot be inhaled; thus, due to the absence of Copy Abilities in the only game they appear in, they can only be defeated by spitting something at them. Doing so awards Kirby 1000 points.
