  • Boneless. The bear rug can move through and occupy a space as narrow as 4 inches wide without squeezing.
  • Damage Transfer. While attached to a creature, the bear rug takes only half the damage dealt to it (rounded down). and that creature takes the other half.
  • False Appearance. While the bear rug remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from a bearskin rug.
  • Keen Smell. The bear rug has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.


  • Multiattack. The bear rug makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its claws.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage, and if the target is Large or smaller, the bear rug attaches to it. If the bear rug has advantage against the target, the bear rug attaches to the target’s head, and the target is blinded and unable to breathe while the bear rug is attached. While attached, the bear rug can make this attack only against the target and has advantage on the attack roll. The bear rug can detach itself by spending 5 feet of its movement. A creature, including the target, can take its action to detach the bear rug by succeeding on a DC 14 Strength check.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) slashing damage.


This blue bearskin rug stands up on its four feet and walks all around. It can’t speak; though it is animated, it doesn’t have a solid body to push breath to form words. It humps up its back skin and trots along in a very peculiar way.
