  • Plant Form. Small avocado tree
  • Verdant Burst. When the Avocado leshy dies, a burst of primal energy explodes from their body, restoring 9 (2d8) hit points to each plant creature in a 30-foot radius. This area immediately fills with avocado, becoming difficult terrain. If the terrain is not viable for avocados, they wither and die after 24 hours.
  • Solid Core. Any successful melee weapon against the Avocado leshy that deals slashing damage must make an Athletics or Acrobatics check (DC 13) or risk the blade sticking in the leshy’s solid core. They may attempt to retrieve the blade as an action on their turn with an additional Athletics or Acrobatics check.
  • Regeneration. The Avocado leshy regenerates 5 (1d10) hit points at the end of its turn, every round. If the Avocado leshy suffers slashing damage, it cannot regenerate until the end of its next turn.


  • Multiattack. The Avocado leshy makes two attacks on its turn as an action using its Machete attack.
  • Machete. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8+3) slashing damage.


A favorite of millennials everywhere, avocado is a fruit-bearing tree originating from southern Mexico. Its fruit (technically a berry) has an extremely high fat content, making for a unique eating experience. Avocados are used in guacamole, spread on toast, and other savory dishes. Of course, you can’t discuss avocado without mentioning that its name means testicle.

Much like the fruit it is derived from, the Avocado leshy is a chonky one, moving a bit slower than other leshy but with increased fortitude and constitution in exchange. The hard pit of the avocado serves as a central core of the leshy, and provides some protection against slashing damage (which inactivates its natural regeneration).

Leshies formed from avocado often utilize their pit as a pseudo-head, requiring the berry to be opened. Normally, this would cause an avocado to go bad quickly, but the leshies are gifted a small amount of regeneration to counteract this effect. It is possible these creatures were first created in an attempt to generate an endless supply of avocado.
