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.

This monster is weakness against Earth spells and the Salve amulet. In free worlds, ankous are often attacked due to their high experience rates and decent drops, but some players kill these monsters solely for their left skull half drops. Ankous act very similar to attackable human NPCs, and attack by punching.

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

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.
