SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Dive Attack. If the wendigo is flying and dives at least 30 feet toward a target and then hits with a bite attack, the attack deals an extra 10 (3d6) damage to the target.
  • Flyby. The wendigo doesn’t provoke an opportunity attack when it flies out of an enemy’s reach. Keen Hearing and Smell. The wendigo has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.
  • Horrifying Visage. Any humanoid that starts its turn within 30 feet of the wendigo and can see the wendigo must make a DC 12 Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, the creature is frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, with disadvantage if the wendigo is within line of sight, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the wendigo’s Horrific Appearance for the next 24 hours.
  • Regeneration. The wendigo regains 10 hit points at the start of its turn. If the wendigo takes fire damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the wendigo’s next turn. The wendigo dies only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and doesn’t regenerate.
  • Shapechanger. The wendigo can use its action to polymorph into a wendigo or back into its true form, which is humanoid. Its statistics, other than its AC, 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.
  • Snow Camouflage. The wendigo has advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks made to hide in snowy terrain..

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack (Humanoid or Hybrid Form Only). The wendigo makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its claws or knife.
  • Bite (Hybrid Form Only). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage. If the target is a humanoid, it must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or be cursed with wendigo lycanthropy.
  • Claws (Hybrid Form Only). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 8 (2d4 + 3) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) fire damage. A creature who dies from this attack becomes a pile of ash. The target is also grappled (escape DC 14). If the target is Medium or smaller, it is also restrained until this grapple ends. While grappling the target, the wendigo has advantage on attack rolls against it and can’t use this attack against other targets. When the wendigo moves, any target it is grappling moves with it.
  • Knife (Humanoid Form Only). Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one creature. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 3) piercing damage.
  • Terrifying Wail (Hybrid Form Only). The wendigo wails about its burning feet and bleeding eyes. Any beast or humanoid within 300 feet of the wendigo and able to hear its howl must succeed on a DC 12 Wisdom saving throw or be frightened for 1 minute. A frightened target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a target’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the target is immune to any wendigo’s Terrifying Wail for the next 24 hours.

ABOUT

This flying thing has bleeding eyes and missing feet, screaming as it sails through the air! Wendigos are cannibalistic humanoids found in frozen climes. They are fond of picking up victims, freezing them in their claws, and then dropping them from a great height to shatter on the ground.
