Ankou are undead monsters found on the fourth level of the Stronghold of Security, in the Wilderness Volcano, and in the Forinthry Dungeon. They are described by Vannaka, a Slayer Master, as "neither skeleton nor ghost, but a combination of both." The level 63 ankous have a maximum hit of 180.

They're weak against Earth spells and the Salve amulet, and In free worlds, they're often attacked because of their high experience yield and decent drops, although some players will kill them solely for their left skull half drops. Combat-wise Ankous act very similar to attackable human NPCs, and attack by way of punching.

The ankou is the only monster to drop the left skull half, a component needed to assemble the skull sceptre. It can be helpful to wear Varrock armour while killing them if you want the left skull half, as the chance of receiving a component of the skull sceptre is improved while the armour is equipped.

TriviaEdit

Wikipedia logo
Wikipedia has an article about:
Ankou
  • In Breton, the word Ankou means Grim Reaper or Death. It is also a psychopomp (someone who escorts deceased souls to the afterlife) in Breton mythology.
  • Although the examine info says, "A bony ghost," they do not count towards a Slayer assignment of ghosts. Instead, they are a slayer task by themselves.
  • Ankous located in the Forinthry Dungeon can drop a left skull half, this glitch has yet to be fixed.
  • It appears that when an ankou drops a Left skull half, it'll usually drop a seed/item or a battlestaff too. For non-members an ankou will usually drop a gem as well as the Left skull half.
