Red Bones are a stronger sub-species of Dull Bones. They act the same as others in the Bones family, except Red Bones summon Dull Bones more often, and appear very few times throughout the game. They're the only ones with blue eyes. They only appear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, where they are found in Hooktail Castle and a certain puzzle in the Palace of Shadow's Riddle Tower.
- Red Bones was originally going to be called "Red Koopa Skeleton", but that name was replaced.
- Even if you do not tattle the Red Bones in Hooktail's Castle their tattle log can be found in Frankly's garbage can even though the player still fights the Red Bones in the Palace of Shadow.
