  • False Appearance (Toy Form Only). While the mimic of love remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from an ordinary toy.
  • Horrific Image. Creatures who witness the transformation of the mimic of love for the first time must make a DC 12 Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, a creature becomes frightened until the end of its next turn. On a successful save, it is not frightened and is immune to the effects of the Horrific Image feature for 1 hour.
  • Monstrous Assault. The mimic of love can only make a bite attack in its toy form.
  • Shapechanger. The mimic of love can use its action to polymorph into a toy or back into its true, monstrous form. Its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.


  • Multiattack. The mimic of love makes three melee weapon attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (2d6 + 2) piercing damage.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) slashing damage.


A mimic of love is a monstrous goo with razorsharp teeth and claws. In spite of their off-putting appearance, they like to be loved and cared for, and so they change their shape into toys to make friends (mostly children). As long as its friend is loving and caring to them, they also love and protect them. Once a mimic of love senses it is not loved, its leaves and looks for other friends.

Hungry for Love. Mimics of love need love and attention to sustain themselves. An unloved mimic of love is a depressed one. Thus, they care for and protect anyone who loves them. If an unloved mimic of love is unable to find love for one year, it dies of a broken heart.
