Special Traits

  • Keen Smell. The devourer has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
  • Stench. Any creature that starts its turn within 15 feet of the devourer must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw, or be poisoned until the start of its next turn. On a successful saving throw, the creature is immune to the devourer’s Stench for 24 hours.
  • Turning Rage. If the devourer succeeds on a saving throw against an effect that turns undead, it falls into a frenzy until the end of its next turn. While frenzied, the devourer has advantage on attack rolls and saving throws against being charmed or frightened and effects that turn undead.


  • Multiattack. The devourer makes two attacks: one with its bite, and one with its claws.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 18 (3d8 + 5) piercing damage.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (3d6 + 5) slashing damage. If the target is a creature other than an elf or undead, it must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw, or be paralyzed for 1 minute. The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Legendary Actions

The devourer can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time, and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The devourer regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

  • Crawl. The devourer moves up to half its speed, without provoking opportunity attacks.
  • Bite. The devourer makes a bite attack.
  • Claw (Costs 2 Actions). The devourer makes a claw attack.
