Bone is a muscular hero dressed in a skin-tight, full-body skeleton costume.
A typical hero of the Hero Association, Bone is a proud, glory-craving hero who fights Mysterious Beings to gain fame. He wants his achievements to be told to the coming generations.
Bone, along with Butterfly DX and Death Gatling, attempts to stop Hundred-Eyes Octopus in I-City. He narrowly manages to rescue Red Muffler from the monster. After strengthening his bones by drinking milk, he attempts to fight the monster but is instantly defeated, and all his bones are crushed.

Abilities and Powers
As a B-Class hero, it can be assumed that Bone is a fairly skilled combatant, though he is one of the lower-ranked heroes in B-Class implying he isn't very strong by the class' standards.
High Bone Density: Bone was born with a highly dense bone structure, which makes his body as tough as armor. Furthermore, for a short period of time, he can further increase his bone density by drinking milk or consuming food with high amounts of calcium. However, all of these are still not enough to withstand a strike from a Demon-level monster, which shattered every single bone in his body.
Enhanced Endurance: Bone was able to survive an attack from the Hundred-Eyes Octopus, a blow that broke every bone in his body.

- Bone happens to be mostly based on Skullomania from Arika's fighting game series, such as Capcom's Street Fighter EX series and Arika's own Fighting EX Layer.
- In the anime, Bone only appears on a screen in the Hero Association. Once the setting changes to the actual scene of the battle with Hundred-Eyes Octopus, only Butterfly DX and Death Gatling are present until Flashy Flash arrives.
- In the 2017 One Punch Man Halloween cover, Bone is depicted being zapped by the two raijin cosplayers Max and Genji. This scene is a reference to cartoon-related x-ray sparks that show the skeleton of characters who are being shocked.
- A hero with a similar name and appearance to Bone appeared in the Webcomic, called Iron Bone (鉄骨) and ranked B-Class: Rank 57. It's unconfirmed if it is Bone, but it could possibly mean that he was promoted to this rank after fighting Hundred-Eyes Octopus and given a new name.
