  • Ambusher. The pike has advantage on attack rolls against any creature it has surprised.


  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d8+2) piercing damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 12). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the pike can’t bite another target.
  • Swallow. The pike makes one bite attack against a Medium or smaller target it is grappling. If the attack hits, the target is swallowed, and the grapple ends. The swallowed target is blinded and restrained, it has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the pike, and it takes 5 (1d10) acid damage at the start of each of the pike’s turns. The pike can have only one target swallowed at a time. If the pike dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained by it and can escape from the corpse using 5 feet of movement, exiting prone.
