Hold Breath. The pyrohydra can hold its breath for 1 hour.
Multiple Heads. The pyrohydra has five heads. While it has more than one head, the pyrohydra has advantage on saving throws against being blinded, charmed, deafened, frightened, stunned, and knocked unconscious.Whenever the pyrohydra takes 25 or more damage in a single turn, one of its heads dies. If all its heads die, the pyrohydra dies. At the end of its turn, it grows two heads for each of its heads that died since its last turn, unless it has taken cold damage since its last turn.The pyrohydra regains 10 hit points for each head regrown in this way.
Reactive Heads. For each head the pyrohydra has beyond one, it gets an extra reaction that can be used only for opportunity attacks.
Wakeful. When one of the pyrohydra's heads is asleep, its other head is awake.
Multiattack. The pyrohydra makes as many bite attacks or breath weapon attacks as it has heads. All heads breathe on the same turn. Each breath weapon can target a different opponent.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (1d10 + 5) piercing damage.
Breath Weapon (Recharge 5-6). The pyrohydra exhales fire in a 30-foot line that is 5 wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw, taking 11 (2d10) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
