Like most Skeleton Warriors, the Skeleton Rider is a white skeleton with red eyes. He is distinguished by the fact that he wears a black hood and a black cloak, giving him an intimidating Grim Reaper-like design.
In LEGO Quest & Collect, the Skeleton Rider's hood and cape are brown instead of black.
The Skeleton Rider rides a white Skeletal Horse, while wielding his scythe weapon. He is a powerful Skeleton Warrior who leads his fellow undead soldiers in an attack on the drawbridge tower. The Golden Knight drives the skeletons back, preventing the capture of the Queen.
- In 852272 Skeletons Battle Pack, his scythe pole is brown, but in 7079 Drawbridge Defense, it is black.
- He is similar to the Skeleton Bishop, as they both sport a Grim Reaper-like design.
