Special Traits

  • Improved Critical. Gore attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20.
  • Keen Smell. The wooly rhinoceros has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
  • Charge. If the wooly rhinoceros moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a gore attack, the target takes an extra 9 (2d8) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the wooly rhinoceros can make one stomp attack against it as a bonus action.


  • Gore. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d8 + 5) piercing damage.
  • Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d12 + 5) piercing damage.


The woolly rhinoceros is an herbivore, though unlike its non-woolly cousin it grazes for food rather than browsing on larger plants. The woolly rhino is legendary for its foul temper, and its size and huge horn give it a ferocious bravery. Any threat (real or perceived) to the rhino or its herd is met with loud bellows and the stomping of feet. Often, those who unwittingly anger a woolly rhino have no time to amend the intrusion before the beast attacks.
