False Appearance. The laser ape is indistinguishable from a normal, albeit unusually large ape until it attacks.

Grappler. The ape has advantage on attack rolls against any creature grappled by it.


Multiattack. The ape can use its Frightful Presence. It then makes two fist attacks.

Fist. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage.

Rock. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 30/60 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage.

Frightful Presence. Each creature of the ape's choice that is within 120 feet of the ape and aware of it must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or become 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 ape's Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Laser Eyes (Recharge 5-6). The ape blasts a pair of incinerating beams in a 90-foot line. Each creature in that area must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, taking 19 (3d12) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. On a failed save, the target is paralyzed until the start of the ape's next turn.

Many creatures have fallen to this ape's lethal glare.

Found only in the darkest, dankest of jungles, the laser ape is a mysterious and ferocious apex predator. It often leads a tribe of smaller, common apes.
