Special Traits

  • Keen Smell. The zombie rat has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
  • Pack Tactics. The zombie rat has advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one of the rat’s allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn’t incapacitated.
  • Turn Resistance. The zombie rat has advantage on saving throws against any effect that turns undead.
  • Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces the zombie dire rat 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 rat drops to 1 hit point instead.

Actions

  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or contract a disease. Until the disease is cured, the target can’t regain hit points except by magical means, and the target’s hit point maximum decreases by 3 (1d6) every 24 hours. If the target’s hit point maximum drops to 0 as a result of this disease, the target dies.
