Special Traits

  • Sure-Footed. The giant stag beetle has advantage on Strength and Dexterity saving throws made against effects that would knock it prone.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The giant stag beetle makes two attacks with its Mandibles.
  • Mandibles. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d10 + 3) slashing damage and the target is grappled (escape DC 13). Until this grapple ends, the creature is restrained, and the giant stag beetle can’t make mandible attacks against another target.
  • Pinch (recharge 6). One creature grappled by the giant stag beetle must make a DC 13 Strength saving throw. On a failure, a creature takes 19 (3d10 + 3) bludgeoning damage and is incapacitated until the end of its next turn. On a success, a creature takes half the damage and isn’t incapacitated.
