Chakra Constitution Shukaku has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects. All of Shukaku’s attacks are considered magical for the sake of overcoming resistances.

Legendary Resistance (3/Day). If Shukaku fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.


Multiattack. Shukaku can make three attacks: one with its tail and two with its sand manipulation.

Sand Manipulation. Melee Weapon Attack: +16 to hit, 10 ft. cone, one target. Hit: 20 (2d10 + 9) piercing damage plus 7 (2d6) slashing damage.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack:+ 16 to hit, reach 20 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d8 + 9) bludgeoning damage.

Frightful Presence. Each creature of Shukaku's choice that is within 120 feet of and aware of him must succeed on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Tailed Beast Bomb (Recharge 5-6). Shukaku chooses a space within 120 feet and fires a 60 foot sphere of chakra centered on that point. Every creature within range must succeed a DC 23 Dexterity saving throw, taking 63 (10d10 + 4) force damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.


The Shukaku 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 Shukaku regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Gather Chakra. Shukaku rolls to recharge Tailed Beast Bomb or gains 20 temporary hit points.

Sand Manipulation. Shukaku makes a sand manipulation attack.

Shukaku, the One-Tailed Sand Spirit

The weakest of the Tailed Beasts, Shukaku is characterised as a childish and short-tempered individual, and often speaks in a bombastic and incoherent manner, giving it the demeanour of a drunkard. Shukaku relishes the opportunity to kill anyone in sight, even more so during a full moon.
