The tougher Skullions guard the Necro Nebula. Skullys grow into Skullions over a hundred years. They must be fierce!
— Daroach, in Kirby Mass Attack

Skullion is an enemy from Kirby Mass Attack. It is very similar to Skully, but is distinguished by the small spike protruding from its head. Skullion is considered to be a high-ranking member of the Skull Gang, and can only be found on Necro Nebula, both in cutscenes, on the world map, and in the boss fight with Necrodeus.

During the first part of the fight, a fleet of Skullions will try to repair Necrodeus's hands when the Kirbys damage them. Later in the fight, when Necrodeus is in it with his head, he will occasionally call Skullions to attack the Kirbys. They are not much tougher than Skullys, and their spikes don't do much to defend them. However, they are still capable of picking up and carrying the Kirbys away. Defeating a Skullion awards the player with 500 points.
