Spear-wielding, lightly-armored skeletons that can be encountered in Konami's 1997/1998 Castlevania: Legends [Japanese title: Akumajo Dracula: Shikkoku Taru Zensoukyoku (Demon Castle Dracula: Dark Night Prelude)] Super Gameboy video game. These undead creatures mindlessly patrol the castle's exterior grounds, as well as its' dungeon, impaling any trespassers they happen to run across on the ends of their pointy sticks. Initially, it will take three cracks of Sonia Belmont's whip to destroy one of these fiends, but only two blows when the weapon has been powered-up (that said, note that the long-range fireballs that the full-strength, third-level whip unleashes do minimal damage and will still require three hits--it's only physical contact with the actual whip that deals the increased damage).
For comparison/informational purposes, below is a screenshot of Sonia taking on a couple of Skeletons in the first level (Outside The Caste) of the Castlevania: Legends Super Gameboy video game:
