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

Innate Spellcasting. The yochlol’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 14). The yochlol can innately cast the following spells:

At will: detect thoughts, web

1/day: mind control

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

Shapechanger. The yochlol can use its action to polymorph into a form that resembles a female drow or giant spider, or back into its true form. Its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.

Spider Climb. The yochlol can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

Web Walker. The yochlol ignores movement restrictions caused by webbing.

Actions

Multiattack. The yochlol makes two melee attacks.

Slam (Bite in Spider Form). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 1.5 m. (3 m. in demon form). Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning (piercing in spider form) damage plus 21 (6d6) poison damage.

Mist Form. The yochlol transforms into toxic mist or reverts to its true form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying is also transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.

While in mist form, the yochlol is incapacitated and can’t speak. It has a flying speed of 9 meters, can hover, and can pass through any space that isn’t airtight. It has advantage on Strength, Dexterity, and Fortitude saving throws, and it is immune to nonmagical damage.

While in mist form, the yochlol can enter a creature’s space and stop there. Each time that creature starts its turn with the yochlol in its space, the creature must succeed on a DC 14 Fortitude saving throw or be poisoned until the start of its next turn. While poisoned in this way, the target is incapacitated.

Variant: Summon Demon (1/long rest). The demon chooses what to summon and attempts a magical summoning.

A yochlol has a 50 percent chance of summoning one yochlol.

A summoned demon appears in an unoccupied space within 18 meters of its summoner, acts as an ally of its summoner, and can’t summon other demons. It remains for 1 minute, until it or its summoner dies, or until its summoner dismisses it as an action.
