Special Traits

  • Compression. A gug zombie can contort and distend their bodies in unnatural ways, allowing them to fit through any space large enough for a Small creature to fit without squeezing, and can move through any space large enough for a Tiny creature, but moves at a speed of 5 feet while doing so.
  • Turn Resistance. The gug zombie has advantage on saving throws against any effect that turns undead.
  • Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces the gug 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 gug zombie makes one bite attack and two claw attacks.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5ft., one target. Hit: 15 (2d10 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 15ft., one target. Hit: 25 (6d6 + 4) slashing damage.
