Card Trivia

 This card became infamous as being one of the worst monsters in the game, prompting Konami to create support cards for it as the Wight series.
Due to its reputation as being a very weak monster on its own, several video games based on Yu-Gi-Oh! reward the player with a bonus if they manage to reduce the opponent's Life Points to zero with an attack from this card. (This is known as Skull Servant Finish.)

Either this monster or King of the Skull Servants (or possibly both in some cases) appear in the artworks of the following cards:
Ghost Salvage
Graceful Revival
King of the Skull Servants
Panic Burial
Monster Rebone
Spirit Caller
Terrible Deal
Reject Reborn
There Can Be Only One
This monster appears in the artworks of the following cards, according to the Master Guide 3 card storylines:
Dark Eruption
Pride of the Weak
Spirit Caller
Zombie Master
This card appears in the artwork of Ante.
This monster has a counterpart: The Wandering Doomed.
The Japanese name of this monster, Wight, is a Middle English word for a creature or living being, esp. a human being. This term is used comparatively recently to give an impression of archaism and mystery in literature, for example in the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, where wights" are corpses with a part of their decayed soul. Some subsequent writers seem to have been unaware that the word did not actually mean ghost or wraith, and so many works of fantasy fiction, role-playing games and computer and video games use the term as a name for spectral or undead creatures.
This card is Level 2 in the first-series anime and manga.
The character Shiro from Shakugan no Shana bears a strong resemblance to this card.



Previously Official Rulings

Mentions in Other Rulings

Black Garden: If "King of the Skull Servants" is Normal or Special Summoned, first its original ATK is set by its effect. When "Black Garden" halves its ATK, it will halve the original ATK, and even if the number of "King of the Skull Servants" and/or "Skull Servants" in the Graveyard changes afterwards, the ATK of the "King of the Skull Servants" remains at the halved value set by "Black Garden".

Elemental HERO Thunder Giant"Elemental Hero Thunder Giant" is activated, targeting "King of the Skull Servants" with 2000 original ATK, and the opponent chains "Curse of Aging" and discards "Skull Servant" to activate it, then "King of the Skull Servants" has 3000 original ATK and is not destroyed.

King of the Skull Servants: If the number of “Skull Servant” and “King of the Skull Servants” cards in your Graveyard changes, re-calculate the original ATK of “King of the Skull Servants”. If it is equipped with "Megamorph" you would then re-apply the effect of "Megamorph".

King of the Skull Servants: If you have 2 "Skull Servant" cards in your Graveyard (original ATK 2000), and you equip this card with "Megamorph", its current ATK will become either 4000 or 1000, depending on your Life Points.

King of the Skull Servants: Removing from play 1 "Skull Servant" or "King of the Skull Servants" to Special Summon a "King of the Skull Servants" is a cost.

Pole Position: If "Pole Position" is active, and your opponent controls "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and "Skull Servant", and you activate "Smashing Ground", "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" is unaffected by Spell Cards, so the effect of "Smashing Ground" disappears.
