Here is a custom D&D 5e monster statblock for a challenge rating 1 creature:


Enchanted Rabbit

Size: Small

Armor Class: 12

Hit Points: 10 (3d6)

Speed: 40 ft.

This creature is a fast and nimble rabbit that can bite foes with its sharp teeth, and has the ability to cast "Charm Person" to lure prey or protect itself from danger. Its low Intelligence score makes it unlikely to use its spell in clever or strategic ways, but it can still be a dangerous opponent for low-level characters who underestimate its abilities.

This creature is a fearsome dragon that is immune to necrotic damage and resistant to piercing and slashing damage. It has a bite attack that deals both piercing and necrotic damage, and claw attacks that deal slashing damage. Its most dangerous ability is its shadow breath, which deals a large amount of necrotic damage and can stun its enemies. Its low Intelligence score means that it is unlikely to use its abilities in clever or strategic ways, but its raw power makes it a formidable opponent for mid-level characters.

Make me a custom dnd 5e monster statblock that is challenge rating 30.


I'm sorry, but a challenge rating of 30 is beyond the maximum possible value in the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons. The highest possible challenge rating for a single creature in the game is 24. If you'd like, I can create a monster statblock for a challenge rating of 24 instead.
