(not-Drakkhen?) Game with full-screen skeleton slicing at you with sword?

So in around 1990 I was in Software, Etc in Lakehurst Mall looking for C64/128 games, and they were running some kind of demo or game on an Amiga. It was shown with Drakkhen, but during the demo a huge skeleton warrior appeared out of nowhere and slashed at the screen. It scared the bejeezus out of my mom.

Does anyone know what this was? Is it a game, or was this a demo?

I found someone else on AtariAge who also remembers this, and also thought it was Drakkhen:

https://atariage.com/forums/topic/19...e-the-mystery/

" I think it was a demo I saw on an Amiga in a computer store once. The demo had an animated skeleton slashing a sword, I think. Very big, beautiful graphics and smooth animation on the skeleton. For some reason I think of Drakkhen, but I've never seen that skeleton again anywhere."

"I'm not sure if it was a game, graphics demo, or maybe just an intermission of a game. The skeleton's upper body took up the whole screen and it was animated, it was striking the viewer with a sword, I think. The background was just a solid color, I think. For some reason for the longest time I thought it was Drakkhen. "

Anyone know what this is or was?

That's exactly what I was thinking, which you can see here in screenshots 2 and 8

...or maybe the Barbarian by Psygnosis, although not a skeleton. See first screenshot.

That’s definitely not it. The skeleton was more realistic and moved at the screen.
