Special Abilities

Hooked Harpoon (Ex) A mythic merrow is proficient with the harpoon, and it can make a grapple check against a Medium or smaller creature on any hit with its harpoon, rather than only on a critical hit. Whenever a merrow has a creature grappled with its harpoon, it can attempt a drag combat maneuver against that creature as a swift action. A mythic merrow can expend one use of its mythic power on any grapple or drag combat maneuver check to roll twice and select the better result.

Special Abilities

Hooked Harpoon (Ex) As mythic freshwater merrow.

Hullcracker (Ex) A mythic saltwater merrow ignores the hardness of wooden objects, and if it hits the same wooden object with both claws it can rend that object. Its rend deals double damage against wooden objects, and if using its Power Attack feat its bonus damage applies to its rend damage (and is then doubled) as well as to the damage dealt by its claw attacks.

Toss Overboard (Ex) When a mythic saltwater merrow successfully grapples a creature smaller than itself with one of its claw attacks, as a swift action it can fling the target 1d6 x 5 feet in any direction it chooses. The creature takes 1d6 points of damage per 10 feet traveled or else falling damage from the height it was when it was grappled, whichever is greater. If it hits the target with both claws, it may rend the target and then use this ability.
