The WYK-TV Skeletons are Rare Characters that can be encountered, and recruited at the W*Y*K Station. The Skeletons are named after the streamers of WouldyouKindly.com, when they failed to beat the game in a pre-release streaming event.
The WYK-TV team were challenged by Rocketcat to make it to Canada in a single run while on stream in July, 2016. The team failed to make it to Canada, and so their attempt was commemorated with them being adding into the game as skeletons. Their failed attempt is lightheartedly mocked by Rocketcat in their encounter text. They are said to "Reek of failure" and their stats are all set and revealed as being zero.
The seven WTK-TV team members included in the game are as follows, with each having a unique quote when spoken to:
- GOOBS - "YELLING ALWAYS SOLVES EVERYTHING"
- Brawli - "IT'S NOT MY BIRTHDAY ... BUT FOR YOU ... IT IS..."
- The Danamal - "THE DUDE ABIDES..."
- Romcomm - "I MAY ONLY HAVE ONE HORN, BUT IT'S ALL FOR YOU"
- Farrington - "CHARGE THE LASERS!"
- Dagwood - "YOU'RE BONED"
- Firecrow - "BUT I'M YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD BARTENDER..."
The WTK-TV Skeletons were added in the October 2016 Halloween update.
