Special Traits

  • Charge. If the minotaur moves at least 10 feet straight toward a target and then hits it with a gore attack on the same turn, 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 pushed up to 10 feet away and knocked prone.
  • Horrific Appearance. All creatures who directly look at the minotaur must make a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or be frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the minotaur’s horrific appearance for the next 24 hours.
  • Magic Resistance. The minotaur has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magic effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The minotaur’s attacks are magical.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The bleeding horror minotaur uses its gore attack, and makes one attack with its claw and one with its greataxe, or two with its claws.
  • Gore. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Greataxe. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) slashing damage.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) slashing damage.

About

This creature appears as a hulking bull-headed humanoid whose body constantly drips and oozes thick blood. Its eyes are small pinpoints of red light and shine with evil. It wields a massive axe in its clawed hands.

A bleeding horror minotaur stands more than 7 feet tall and weighs about 700 pounds. Bleeding horror minotaurs prefer melee combat where their great strength serves them well.
