Journal Description Edit
In addition to their well-honed swordsmanship, they are capable of releasing an evil, shimmering skull that chases down an opponent. A flurry of blows often fails to harm them, such is their defensive skill. - Book of Sphinx
Museum Description Edit
Highly trained in many swordsmanship techniques, and deadly opponents. Proof that they dwell within evil, they can summon a ghostly skull, which drains the soul’s essence on contact. - Abydos Museum

- The Skull Swordsman is identical to the Skull Worshipper with exception of having a sword instead of a staff.
- For an unknown reason, the sword it uses is more similar to a Japanese Katana than an Egyptian Kopesh or sickle sword.
- The Swordsman uses actual samurai postures. For example, it uses Seigan no Kamae (which the profile picture demonstrates) for its blocking.
- It's summoning ability is mis-attributed to the Worshipper in the game's manual.
- At least one Swordsman is able to shape-shift into a human female. It is unknown if all of them possess this power.
