Jet [two-actions] (move) The giant squid moves up to 200 feet in a straight line through the water without triggering any reactions.

Ravenous Embrace [two-actions] The giant squid makes up to four arm Strikes, each with a different arm and against a different target. The giant squid then makes a beak Strike against one creature that it grabbed during Ravenous Embrace. Each arm Strike counts separately for the squid’s multiple attack penalty, but the penalty doesn’t increase until the squid has made all of its arm Strikes; the beak Strike uses the multiple attack penalty as normal.


Dwelling deep within the oceans, this huge cephalopod grows up to 45 feet in length and can weigh up to 600 pounds. Its arms and tentacles are lined with hundreds of hooks and suckers, allowing it to seize its prey with ease.

The giant squid attacks by lashing out with its longest tentacles and then rapidly pulling the prey toward itself. While closing the distance between them, it attacks again, this time closing its smaller arms around the prey. Once it has the prey thoroughly trapped, the giant squid tears and cuts with its beak and the teeth-lined saw it has in the place of a tongue.
