The Skull is the final antagonist in the 1983 film Scarface and a minor antagonist of the 2006 video game Scarface: The World Is Yours.

He was portrayed by the late Geno Silva.



The Skull is Alejandro Sosa's professional henchman and chief assassin. His real name is never given and he has no on-screen dialogue.

He is apparently nicknamed by his gaunt face and he always wears large, circular, dark sunglasses, giving his face the appearance of a skull which is his assassin trademark. He executed Omar Suárez by throwing him off Sosa's chopper (thus hanging him) and also killed Nick the Pig by blowing his head off with a 12 gauge double-barreled shotgun, before killing Tony Montana from behind.

Scarface: The World is Yours

The Skull makes a brief appearance in the quasi sequel game Scarface: The World Is Yours, where like in the film, he tries to sneak behind Tony and kill him, if the player stays still, the Skull will kill Tony which resembles the ending of the movie. However, the player must kill him in order to proceed into the game's story line.


  • Omar Suárez - Hanged from a helicopter by The Skull.
  • Nick the Pig - Shot in the back of the head with a double barrel shotgun by The Skull.
  • Tony Montana - Shot in the back with a double barrel shotgun by The Skull. (Movie Only)

  • Taste of Cinema's Dan Carmody chose The Skull as the 7th greatest henchman in movie history.
