Special Traits

  • Berserk. Whenever the jade colossus starts its turn with only the eyes of the sultana equipped, roll a d6. On a 6, the jade colossus goes berserk. On each of its turns while berserk, the jade colossus attacks the nearest creature it can see. If no creature is near enough to move to and attack, the jade colossus attacks an object with preference for an object smaller than itself. At the start of each of its turns, roll a d6 again. If the roll is 4 or more, the jade colossus continues to berserk until the roll is less than 4 or the eyes of the sultana are removed with a successful DC 20 Strength (Athletics) check while grappling the jade colossus.
  • Construct Nature. The jade colossus doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
  • Fire Absorption. Whenever the jade colossus is subjected to fire damage, it takes no damage and instead regains a number of hit points equal to the fire damage dealt.
  • Immutable Form. The jade colossus is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.
  • Legendary Resistance (3/day). If the jade colossus fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.
  • Magic Resistance. The jade colossus has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The jade colossus’ weapon attacks are magical.


  • Multiattack. The jade colossus makes three Jade Fist attacks or two Jade Fist attacks and one Stomp attack.
  • Jade Fist. Melee Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target/creature. Hit: 19 (2d8 + 10) bludgeoning damage.
  • Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, reach 10 ft., one Large or smaller target. Hit: 26 (3d10 + 10) bludgeoning damage and the target must succeed on a DC 25 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Jade Breath (recharge 5–6). The jade colossus exhales a blast of green energy in a 90-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 23 Dexterity saving throw. On a failure, a creature takes 54 (12d8) force damage and is restrained as it begins to turn to jade. On a success, a creature takes half the damage and isn’t restrained. The restrained creature must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn, becoming petrified on a failure or ending the effect on a success. The petrified creature becomes a statue of jade until it is freed by the greater restoration spell or similar magic.


  • Reflective Skin. When the jade colossus is targeted by a spell that requires an attack roll, the spellcaster must make a DC 23 spellcasting ability check or the spell is reflected back onto the spellcaster.

Legendary Actions

The jade colossus can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The jade colossus regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

  • Detect. The jade colossus makes a Wisdom (Perception) check.
  • Jade Fist. The jade colossus makes one Jade Fist attack.
  • Reflect Light (costs 2 actions). The jade colossus reflects light in a 90-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 20 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, a creature takes 28 (8d6) radiant damage and is blinded until the end of the jade colossus’ next turn. On a success, a creature takes half the damage and isn’t blinded.
