Amphibious. The kraken can breathe air and water.

Dashing Strike. If the kraken uses its action to Dash, it can use a bonus action to make one melee weapon attack or shove a creature.

Freedom of Movement. The kraken ignores difficult terrain, and magical effects can’t reduce its speed or cause it to be restrained. It can spend 1.5 meters of movement to escape from nonmagical restraints or being grappled.

Siege Monster. The kraken deals double damage to objects and structures.

Actions

Multiattack. The kraken makes three tentacle attacks, each of which it can replace with one use of Fling.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, reach 1.5 m. Hit: 23 (3d8 + 10) piercing damage. If the target is a Large or smaller creature grappled by the kraken, that creature is swallowed, and the grapple ends. While swallowed, the creature is blinded and restrained, it has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the kraken, and it takes 42 (12d6) acid damage at the start of each of the kraken’s turns. If the kraken takes 50 damage or more on a single turn from a creature inside it, the kraken must succeed on a DC 25 Fortitude saving throw at the end of that turn or regurgitate all swallowed creatures, which fall prone in a space within 3 meters of the kraken. If the kraken dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained by it and can escape from the corpse using 4.5 meters of movement, exiting prone.

Tentacle. Melee Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, reach 9 m. Hit: 20 (3d6 + 10) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 18). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained. The kraken has ten tentacles, each of which can grapple one target.

Fling. One Large or smaller object held or creature grappled by the kraken is thrown up to 18 meters in a random direction and knocked prone. If a thrown target strikes a solid surface, the target takes 3 (1d6) bludgeoning damage for every 3 meters it was thrown. If the target is thrown at another creature, that creature must succeed on a DC 18 Reflex saving throw or take the same damage and be knocked prone.

Lightning Storm. The kraken magically creates three bolts of lightning, each of which can strike a target the kraken can see within 35 meters of it. A target must make a DC 23 Reflex saving throw, taking 22 (4d10) lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Legendary Actions

The kraken can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The kraken regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Ink Cloud (Costs 3 Actions). While underwater, the kraken expels an ink cloud in a 18-meters radius. The cloud spreads around corners, and that area is heavily obscured to creatures other than the kraken. Each creature other than the kraken that ends its turn there must succeed on a DC 23 Fortitude saving throw, taking 16 (3d10) poison damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. A strong current disperses the cloud, which otherwise disappears at the end of the kraken’s next turn.

Lightning Storm (Costs 2 Actions). The kraken uses Lightning Storm.

Tentacle Attack or Fling. The kraken makes one tentacle attack or uses its Fling.
