Enhanced Musculature[edit]

At 1st level, you gain the quintessential nomu quirk. Your unarmed strikes use the die listed in the Enhanced Musculature table.


At 2nd level, you can choose one quirk, all of which are listed at the end of this class. You gain additional quirks as shown on the Quirks table. During a long rest, you may exchange one quirk for another. Certain quirks can only be taken at certain levels. Any quirks with limited uses regain all uses at the end of a long rest.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Powerful Knees[edit]

At 6th level, you become resistant to falling damage.

Quickened Strike[edit]

At 7th level, you may make a single attack as a bonus action.


At 9th level, your flesh becomes unnaturally strong. When you make a Constitution saving throw to take half damage, you instead take no damage in a success, and half damage on a failure.

Long-Term Nomu[edit]

At 10th level, you prove yourself to be greater than the other, disposable nomu. You become immune to disease and poison and you require half as much food as usual.

Extra Attack[edit]

At 13th level, when you take the attack action, you may attack an additional time. You may do this an additional time at 15th level (3).

At 14th level, as an action, you can end one effect that is causing you to be charmed or frightened.
