So what is the giant frog 5e size, it is considered to be a medium beast that is unaligned. AC of 11, 18 hit points calculated by rolling a 4d8 and a speed of thirty feet and swim speed of thirty feet as well. So very cool stuff! Now let’s take a look at its actual stats here.

Giant Frog DnD 5E Stats

  • STR: 12 (+1)
  • DEX: 13 (+1)
  • CON: 11 (+0)
  • INT: 2 (-4)
  • WIS: 10 (+0)
  • CHA: 3 (-4)
  • Skills: Perception +2, Stealth +3
  • Senses: Darkvision 30 ft., Passive Perception 12
  • Languages:
  • Challenge: 1/4 (50 XP)

You’ll notice nothing overly impressive. +1 to strength, +1 to dex, zero to con, -4 to intelligence, +0 to wisdom and a -4 to charisma as well. Under skills you will see a perception increase of +2 and stealth increase of +3 which is nice. Under senses you’ll see 30 feet of darkvision and a passive perception of 12. Now let’s take a quick look at its other traits here.

Other Traits

  • Amphibious: The frog can breathe air and water.
  • Standing Leap: The frog’s long jump is up to 20 feet and its high jump is up to 10 feet, with or without a running start.

Frog has access to Amphibious which allowed to breathe in both water and air and also standing leap which is the frog’s ability to long jump up to 20 feet and high jump up to ten feet with or without a running start which is pretty dang a great. Now looking at all these stats you’ve covered so far. It might not seem super amazing. But let’s take a look at its actions here.


  • Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d6 + 1) piercing damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 11). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the frog can’t bite another target.
  • Swallow: The frog makes one bite attack against a Small or smaller target it is grappling. If the attack hits, the target is swallowed, and the grapple ends. The swallowed target is blinded and restrained, it has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the frog, and it takes 5 (2d4) acid damage at the start of each of the frog’s turns. The frog can have only one target swallowed at a time. If the frog dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained by it and can escape from the corpse using 5 feet of movement, exiting prone.

So i would personally alter this where medium beast could be affected as well, i konw thematically that doesn’t make a lot of sense because it is a medium beast in of itself but i think that would make encounters way more interesting with this.

That being said though, it would be absolutely hilarious to have an evil kind of gnome NPC kind of get chased down by a horde of giant frogs and like a climatic satisfying ending to a kind of minor character arc. That being said, i would kind of up the danger intensity by making so medium beasts could be swallowed as well, i think that’d be kind of cool and then you could really ascent your players up for some very cool quest lines, involving hordes of frogs just decimating small villages, although once again i suppose you could just do that with gnomes but whatever.

Now in terms of another way to weasel these into a campaign have them being ridden like some form of fake organization or like the gnome, king’s, guards for example i think that’d be kind of funny, because they really are quite formittable.

And if they were to be taken his mounts i feel like this would be a great mount because you could potentially influence action economy in a very profane way by just virtually removing a person from combat. Naturally that would only really work on people who would do poorly against grapples but still pretty interesting stuff.


That being said, let me know how you would use the giant frog in your games down beneath in the comment section. Also be sure to mention any questions, comments or concerns you have regarding the giant frog. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy researching.
