Dodongo (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Dodongos are dinosaur-like reptiles that can grow to tremendous sizes. Most of them wield fire breath, immense physical strength, and thick armor-like scales. This combined with their feral aggression make them infamous monsters across the entire Light World. They have a notorious weakness to the thunderous detonations produced by bombs, and are almost single-handedly the reason any worthy adventurer keeps at least a few explosives at the ready.
The most common variety of dodongo has several stages in its lifespan, which are listed in order below. Exceedingly few dodongos from each stage make it to the next, and the final stages are consequently so rare their existence is akin to myth.
- Baby Dodongo (5e Creature)
- Bipedal Dodongo (5e Creature)
- King Dodongo (5e Creature)
- Great King Dodongo (5e Creature)
