Greeed Overlord (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Gargantuan monstrosity, lawful evil
Armor Class 19 (natural armour)
Saving Throws Con +9, Int +14, Wis +16, Cha +19
Core Medals. This beast is made out of fifty Core Medals, each of which is what composes its very being. It has 10 Red Core Medals, 10 Green Core Medals, 10 Yellow Core Medals, 10 Grey Core Medal, and 10 Blue Core Medals. When hit by a magic weapon, make a DC 20 Constitution Saving Throw. If the Overlord succeeds, it simply gets damaged, but if it fails, then a Core Medal is taken out of the monster and it takes 10 Psychic damage (d20). If it's a critical hit, regardless of if the weapon is magical or not, then the Core Medal is removed without any save. If all the Core Medals are removed this way, then the monster is instead killed. It can also lose Core Medals through casting spells, complete with taking damage.
Spellcasting. The Greeed Overlord can, at the expense of an appropriate Core Medal, cast a spell. If it does this, however, it opts out of multiattack. Save DC is 22.

Talon: +19 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 26 (3d10 + 10) Piercing damage. If target is hit, it must make a DC 20 Strength Saving Throw or be grappled. When Red Core Medals are gone, halve the damage and DC.
Tentacle: +11 to hit, reach 30 ft., four creatures. Hit: 15 (2d12 + 2) Lightning damage. If target is hit, it must make a DC 20 Strength Saving Throw or be grappled. When Blue Core Medals are gone, halve the damage and DC.
Flight: The Greeed Overlord can stay in flight at the end of its turn. It can't do this when the Red Core Medals are gone.
Lightning Rod. Whenever it suffers Thunder or Lightning Damage, it gets a reaction to create a sixty foot radius of lightning bursts. Those affected in the radius must make a DC 22 Dexterity Saving Throw. Those who fail take 55 Lightning Damage (10d10). It can't do this when the Green Cores are gone.
The Greeed Overlord can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. The Greeed Overlord regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.
Zap: The Greeed Overlord can zap whatever it's holding with its tentacles. All grappled by the tentacles take 18 Lightning Damage (2d12 + 5)
Burn: The Greed Overlord can burn whatever it's holding with its talons. The person grappled takes 21 Fire Damage (3d10 + 5)
Temptation (2 Actions): The Greeed Overlord can choose one target within 120 feet. It will know their greatest desires and will make an offer. The affected must make a 27 DC Wisdom Saving Throw. If they succeed, they ignore the temptation and the Overlord can't pick them again for the rest of the encounter. If they fail though, they will, for one minute, engage in a mental representation of their desires coming to life. Snapping them out of it through an attack will give them 17 Psychic Damage (D20 + 7).
