Buoyant Bloated Corpses are held aloft by noxious gasses filling their body. They cannot walk; only jump, but all long jumps are considered to be running long jumps. In addition, bloated corpses float on water.

Rupture Bloated Corpses die instantly if hit with a critical slashing attack. When the bloated corpse falls to 0 hit points, it releases a cloud of fumes with a 20 ft radius around it. All targets in the area must make a Constitution save with a DC of 13 or take 2d6+4 poison damage, or half as much on a success. If the target fails its constitution roll by more than 5, it will contract a random contagion from the Contagion spell the next time it rests.

Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces the bloated corpse to 0 hit points, it must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 +the damage taken, unless the damage is radiant, slashing, or from a critical hit. On a success, the bloated corpse drops to 1 hit point instead. It also loses Buoyant, allowing it to walk normally. On a success or a failure, the Rupture feat triggers.

ACTIONS

Slam Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage.

REACTIONS

Pounce The first time the bloated corpse passes through a creature with a jump action, it can choose to burn its action and pounce on the creature. The creature must make a strength save with a DC of 13 or be dragged along to the bloated corpse's destination (if the creature is of the same size class or smaller), and be grappled with an escape check of 13. On a successful save, the bloated corpse falls prone at its destination. Until the grapple ends, the bloated corpse has advantage on attacks against the victim.

The bloated corpse is the reanimated body of a traveller that died in a haunted swamp. The magical bacteria that decayed the corpse also reanimated it, and now causes it to bounce through the air like a half inflated balloon.
