The Crystal Skull is the main-antagonist of Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull.


The Crystal Skull is a pre-columbian mesoamerican being which was incarnated via a skull made of crystalline material. It would be located in the Temple of the Crystal Skull in modern-day Cusco, Peru's Lost River Delta region where it used its vast powers to protect its temple and alleged Fountain of Youth.

In 1931, Indiana Jones and the League of Adventurers would join forces to track down the temple in search of the Fountain of Youth. The skull would chase out the League of Adventurer while Indiana Jones would go missing within the temple. During his absence, Jones' assistant Paco would begin hosting tours in the temple only for the tourists to become new targets of the Crystal Skull. These tourists would be saved by Jones and they all found their way out of the temple.

  • This Crystal Skull is not to be confused with the Crystal Skulls of Akator from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008). [2]  These crystal skulls were the skulls of thirteen inter dimensional beings resembling stereotypical aliens from science-fiction.
    • Trader Sam could be seen in possession of a tablet for one of these skulls on the Jungle Cruise for a time leading up to the film's release.[3]
  • In real-life, crystal skulls were hoaxes created by jewellers in the 19th centuries which they claimed to be of mesoamerican, pre-columbian origins.
