Quipper/Fish DnD 5E Stats

A quipper is a carnivorous fish with sharp teeth. Quippers can adapt to any aquatic environment, including cold subterranean lakes. They frequently gather in swarms.

  • Water Breathing: The quipper can breathe only underwater.
  • Actions: Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 piercing damage.

Right off the bat pretty good AC 13 which makes sense, you know fish got scales and all that stuff. Hit point of one and that’s 1d4-1 i’d roll it so you get. It just has a swim speed of 40 which makes sense, because it’s a fish. Really great dex at +3 but pretty poor in every other department, especially intelligence. Which makes sense, that’s a fish.

Good news though, it does have darkvision up to 60 feet which is super great. Passive perception of 8 which is just terrible. Blood frenzy is so this doesn’t really apply to us unless you go with the warlock and even man there’s better things to go with but. You can also check out this octopus 5e.

Basically it gets advantage on melee attack rolls  when a creature doesn’t have all its hit points. Familiars can’t traditionally make attacks so that’s why it doesn’t really matter. It doesn’t water breathing though, so it can breathe only underwater which makes sense because it’s a fish. You can also check out this quipper swarm 5e.


Not really a whole lot to talk about here in terms of mind. But if you can think of any cool uses for it, i’d really like to hear them down in the comments below. If you have any ideas, combos, stories anything like that i find it all super useful. That being said guys, thank you so much for checking out today, have a great day and as always a happy casting.
