Mangling Rend [two-actions] A megaprimatus makes two fist Strikes against the same target. If both hit, the attack deals an additional 2d6 bludgeoning damage, the target is flat-footed, and the target takes a -20-foot status penalty to all Speeds until the end of its next turn.

Terrifying Display [two-actions] (auditory, emotion, fear, mental) The megaprimatus beats its chest in a terrifying display. Creatures within 50 feet must attempt a DC 27 Will save. While a creature is frightened by this ability, it is flat-footed to the megaprimatus and to gorillas.

The megaprimatus is among the mightiest of apes, quick to confront any perceived intrusions into its domain. With a height of 40 feet, it towers over even most giants, and is used to being the top-tier predator in the region.
