Special Traits

  • Charge. If a red unicorn moves at least 20 feet straight toward a target and then hits it with a horn attack on the same turn, the target takes an extra 9 (2d8) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Heated Body. A creature that touches a red unicorn or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 5 (1d10) fire damage.
  • Illumination. A red unicorn sheds bright light in a 10- foot radius and dim light for an additional 10 feet.
  • Innate Spellcasting. A red unicorn’s innate spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 14, +6 to hit with spell attacks). A red unicorn can innately cast the following spells, requiring no components.
  • Magic Resistance. The red unicorn has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.


  • Multiattack. A red unicorn makes two attacks: one with its hooves and one with its horn.
  • Hooves. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage plus 2 (1d4) fire damage.
  • Horn. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage plus 2 (1d4) fire damage.


Red unicorns are normal unicorns corrupted by demons. They live in enchanted forests and attack any goodhearted creatures that attempt to enter. At times, these monsters ally themselves with other evil creatures.

Fiery Horns. The red unicorn’s black horn is a deadly tool of evil. Not only can the monster spear a victim, they do fire damage as well. Using dark magic, the horn can send out magical fire bolts at will. Evil spellcasters and alchemists attempt to gain red unicorn horns for use in spells and potions.

Hot-Tempered. These unicorns are violent and cruel beings. Unlike other unicorns, they are not stealthy and always make their presence known. They are not suitable as mounts as their bodies are dangerously hot.
