Floating Cyclops Skull (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Floating Cyclops Skull
Medium undead, typically neutral evil
Armor Class 16 (natural armor)
Damage Vulnerabilities bludgeoning
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (2d12 + 2) piercing damage and the target is grappled (escape DC 12). Until the grapple ends, the target is restrained if it is Small or smaller and the skull can't make bite attacks against other targets. The skull deals 13 (2d12) bludgeoning damage to any creature is it grappling at the beginning of each of its turns.
At first glance one might mistake the skull to be from a beholder, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Necromancers favor rising cyclops skulls to act as guards, being a far cheaper alternative to getting an actual death tyrant, but still looking the part.
