Once you have all Skelly bones in your inventory, Skelly will tell you that he remembers his grandmother, who is the key to assembling and recruiting him.

Lastly, travel to Termina on Another World, and find his grandmother's house in the eastern part of the town. Take the Skelly bones to her and Skelly will be restored. In order to recruit him, you must leave the house and re-enter it. Speak to Skelly once again, and he will offer to join your team.

Skelly's innate element is Black, and his main weapon is his own gloves. Most of Skelly's skills are composed of circus tricks that don't hit too hard. But if you are determined to unlock all characters in the game, then he is definitely a keeper.
