Deep-Fried Creature

Deep-Fried creatures are created through an ill-advised process that involves immersion in hot oil. Deep-Fried creatures have a nice crunch to them.

Creating a Deep-Fried Creature

“Deep-Fried” is an acquired template that can be added to any living corporeal creature (referred to hereafter as the base creature).

A deep-fried creature uses all the base creature’s statistics and abilities except as noted here. Do not recalculate the creature’s Hit Dice, base attack bonus, saves, or skill points if its type changes.

Size and Type

Animals or vermin with this template become magical beasts, but otherwise the creature type is unchanged. Size is unchanged.

Armor Class

Natural armor improves by +2. Special Attacks

A deep-fried creature is infused with hot oil. Any creature striking one with its body or a handheld weapon deals normal damage, but at the same time the attacker takes fire damage according to the size of the deep-fried creature.

Size Hot Oil Damage
Fine 1
Diminutive 1d2
Tiny 1d3
Small 1d4
Medium 1d6
Large 1d8
Huge 2d6
Gargantuan 3d6
Colossal 4d6

Special Qualities

A deep-fried creature retains all the special qualities of the base creature and also gains immunity to fire and low-light vision.


Increase from the base creature as follows: Con +2, Cha +2.


Hot Oil.
Challenge Rating

Same as the base creature + 1.
