Special Traits

  • Turn Resistance. The giant crayfish zombie has advantage on saving throws against any effect that turns undead.
  • Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces the giant crayfish 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.


  • Multiattack. The monstrous crayfish zombie makes two attacks with its claws.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) slashing damage. The target is grappled (escape DC 13) if the monstrous crayfish isn’t already constricting a creature, and the target is restrained until the grapple ends.
