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

Fear Aura. Any creature hostile to the pit fiend that starts its turn within 6 meters of the pit fiend must make a DC 21 Will saving throw, unless the pit fiend is incapacitated. On a failed save, the creature is frightened until the start of its next turn. If a creature’s saving throw is successful, the creature is immune to the pit fiend’s Fear Aura for the next 24 hours.

Innate Spellcasting. The pit fiend’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 21). The pit fiend can innately cast the following spells:

At will: detect magic, fireball

3/day each: hold creature, wall of fire

Magic Resistance. The pit fiend has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Magic Weapons. The pit fiend’s weapon attacks are magical.

Actions

Multiattack. The pit fiend makes four attacks: one with its bite, one with its claw, one with its mace, and one with its tail.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 1.5 m. Hit: 22 (4d6 + 8) piercing damage. The target must succeed on a DC 21 Fortitude saving throw or become poisoned. While poisoned in this way, the target can’t regain health, and it takes 21 (6d6) poison damage at the start of each of its turns. The poisoned target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 3 m. Hit: 17 (2d8 + 8) slashing damage.

Mace. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 1.5 m. Hit: 15 (2d6 + 8) bludgeoning damage, or 17 (2d8 + 8) bludgeoning damage if used with two hands, plus 21 (6d6) fire damage.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 3 m. Hit: 24 (3d10 + 8) bludgeoning damage.
