Brute. A melee weapon deals one extra die of its damage when the elemental hits with it (included in the attack).

Fire Form. The elemental can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing. A creature that touches the elemental or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 5 (1d10) fire damage. In addition, the elemental can enter a hostile creature's space and stop there. The first time it enters a creature's space on a turn, that creature takes 5 (1d10) fire damage and catches fire, until someone takes an action to douse the fire, the creature takes 5 (1d10) fire damage at the start of each of its turns.

Illumination. The elemental sheds bright light in a 30-foot radius and dim light in an additional 30 feet.

Water Susceptibility. For every 5 feet the elemental moves in water, or for every gallon of water splashed on it, it takes 1 cold damage.


Multiattack. The elemental makes two touch attacks.

Touch. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (3d6 + 4) fire damage. If the target is a creature or a flammable object, it ignites. Until a creature takes an action to douse the fire, the target takes 5 (1d10) fire damage at the start of each of its turns.

Leadership (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). For 1 minute, the elemental can utter a special command or warning whenever a nonhostile creature that it can see within 30 feet of it makes an attack roll or a saving throw. The creature can add a d4 to its roll provided it can hear and understand the elemental. A creature can benefit from only one Leadership die at a time. This effect ends if the elemental is incapacitated.


Parry. The elemental adds 3 to its AC against one melee attack that would hit it. To do so, the elemental must see the attacker and be wielding a melee weapon.

A fire elemental with the Great Elemental template applied to it. Great fire elementals are creatures of roaring flame that burn everything they touch. It might act as a commander for a group of smoke, magma, or steam mephits, regular fire elementals, or a pack of pyromaniacal magmins. A great fire elemental might also serve as a shock troop in an efreeti's army.

Elemental Nature. A great fire elemental doesn't require air, food, drink, or sleep.
