Mogaru can only be influenced in this way once per day.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. Mogaru makes one bite attack or one stomp attack and two tail attacks.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +19 to hit, 60 ft. reach, all targets in a 10-foot cube. Hit: 75 (10d12 + 10) piercing damage.
  • Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +19 to hit, 60 ft. reach, all targets in a 10-foot-radius cylinder, 30 feet high. Hit: 42 (5d12 + 10) bludgeoning damage, and creatures struck must succeed on a DC 25 Dexterity saving throw or be knocked prone and restrained (escape DC 25) until Mogaru moves or makes another Stomp attack.
  • Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +19 to hit, 120 ft. reach, all targets in a 10-foot cube or 20-foot line, 5 feet wide. Hit: 48 (7d10 + 10) bludgeoning damage.

Each creature in that affected area must make a DC 27 Dexterity saving throw, taking 45 (10d8) fire damage plus 45 (10d8) force damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Creatures reduced to 0 hit points by this breath weapon are disintegrated as per the disintegrate spell. A Gargantuan creature that is grappling or restraining Mogaru has disadvantage on its saving throw against his breath weapon.

When Mogaru takes (or would take, if he were not immune to it) acid, cold, fire, lightning, or thunder damage, he absorbs some of that energy converts it into greater power for his Energy Bolts and Breath Weapon. The next time he uses either ability within 1 minute, increase damage dice from d8s to d10s. If he would take damage more than once before discharging his stored energy, increase damage dice from d8s to d12s. He cannot use this ability with damage from his own abilities.

ABOUT

Mogaru, known as the Final King to kaiju scholars, or simply as King Mogaru, is one of the most destructive of his kind.

Although not the most powerful kaiju (a sobering thought in and of itself ), Mogaru is certainly the most active of the known kaiju. Additionally, Mogaru seems to be as eager to rampage through the works of humanity as he is to attack and kill other kaiju, making him something of a mixed blessing to kaijuthreatened cities. While the prospect of an attack by Mogaru is the stuff of nightmares, the possibility of his intervention during a different kaiju attack is the stuff of hope, though the damage dealt to a city during its defense may be significant.

Mogaru appears as a towering dinosaur with twin tails, spines that glow red as he uses his breath weapon, and two powerful clawed forearms. Mogaru stands 140 feet high and weighs 20,000 tons and is nearly 300 feet long from nose to tail.

Unrivaled. King Mogaru dwells in the depths of a tropical jungle, sleeping silently at the bottom of an unusually deep lake until roused. Legends hold that Mogaru was born of the world itself, either formed from the spirits of countless plants and animals resulting from ages of hunting and predation by humanoids for food or sport or formed from the souls of the countless slain in an ancient apocalypse or war that devastated one of the first of the world’s empires. Regardless of the actual cause, the birth of Mogaru in these legends seems to be the same—soon after another kaiju that emerged from an erupting volcano, Mogaru rose to oppose the so-called Thrice-Headed Fiend in a vast battle that nearly slew that enemy while devastating an entire nation in the process. Mogaru is also rumored to have slain no fewer than a dozen other kaiju, including one who may have returned from the grave as the only undead kaiju in existence.

Sensitive to Song. Of particular note is the curious fact that Mogaru exhibits a particularly unique interest in song. Legends of skilled singers being able to save their cities with a single mournful paean to the kaiju, or of vengeful bards using their craft to waken the monster from his lair to send him on a rampage are common along coastal regions with a history of kaiju attacks, and in such regions renowned singers are well respected for this ability to influence one of the world’s most destructive creatures. Kaiju scholars suspect that song manages to penetrate Mogaru’s memories of some primeval event, but the reasons for the kaiju’s reaction to the song are its own.
