The Messenger Wiki

Skelout is an enemy in The Messenger.



Skelout is a dark green demon head with a large mass of swirly hair on the back of its head. It has a small nose that resembles a pig snout and pointy animal eras on the top of its head. Its mouth is frozen open, revealing pointy teeth. Its eyes and mouth glow bright blue-green. Skelout has an angry expression on its face, and it has no sprite animations besides glowing, giving it a stiff appearance.


Skelout materializes from the edge of the room and flies horizontally through the air, bobbing upwards and downwards in large sweeps.


  • Skelout is a portmanteau of "skeletal" and "Sclout" (game programmer, Sylvain Cloutier's nickname).[1]
