Special Abilities

Aura of Cowering Fear (Su) A mythic cornugon is surrounded by a 15-ft. radius aura of fear that causes opponents to cower for 2d4 rounds when they enter this area; a successful DC 25 Will save reduces this effect to being shaken. By spending one use of its mythic power as a free action, a mythic cornugon can cause all creatures within 5 feet that are normally immune to fear to lose that immunity while within 5 feet of it for 24 hours (DC 25 Will negates for mythic creatures or reduces the duration to 1d4 rounds for non-mythic creatures).

Infernal Wound (Su) The damage a mythic cornugon deals with its gore, tail, and tail spikes causes persistent wounds that deal 2d6 points of bleed damage plus 1d3 points of Con bleed. Bleeding caused in this way is difficult to staunch—a DC 30 Heal check stops the damage, and any attempt to heal a creature suffering from an infernal wound must succeed on a DC 30 caster level check or the spell does not function. Success indicates the healing works normally and stops all bleed effects.

Spikes (Ex) With a snap of its tail, a mythic cornugon can loose a volley of four spikes as a standard action (make an attack roll for each spike). This attack has a range of 180 feet with no range increment. All targets must be within 30 feet of each other. If the mythic cornugon targets a single opponent with all four spikes, it can choose to make a single attack roll with a +4 bonus. If the attack hits, all four spikes hit. Precision-based damage (such as sneak attack) and critical hit damage apply only once for this attack. Damage bonuses apply to each spike. Damage reduction and resistances apply separately to each spike.

If a mythic cornugon spends one use of its mythic power as a free action, and targets a single opponent with all four spikes as a single attack, it can make the ranged attack as a swift action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Stun (Su) Whenever a mythic cornugon hits with a spiked chain attack or with a powerful charge, the opponent must succeed on a DC 31 Fortitude save or be stunned for 1d4 rounds. If a mythic cornugon spends 1 use of mythic power as a free action, the opponent must roll two saving throws and take the lowest. An opponent stunned by this ability must also make a DC 31 Reflex save or be knocked prone. This ability is a function of the mythic cornugon, not of the spiked chain. The save DCs are Strength-based and include a +2 racial bonus.
