Bahamut, God Form (5e Creature)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Although mythic monsters can go up to CR 50, this creature's statistics are far above what a CR 50 creature should have with the Mythic Monsters (5e Variant Rule). Besides that issue, the creature has an absurd number of features, ability scores beyond 30.
