Special Traits

  • Turn Resistance. The brain-eating zombie has advantage on saving throws against any effect that turns undead.
  • Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces the brain-eating zombie to 0 hit points, it must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 + the damage taken, unless the damage is radiant or from a critical hit. On a success, the zombie drops to 1 hit point instead.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The brain-eating zombie can attack once with its bite and once with its claws.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) slashing damage and the target is grappled (escape DC 11). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained and the brain-eating zombie cannot grapple another target.
