Special Abilities

Attach (Ex) When a mythic pickled punk hits with a bite attack, it automatically grapples its foe, though the target is not considered to be grappling the punk. Each round the mythic pickled punk is grappling its foe, it automatically deals bite damage.

Create Spawn (Su) The body of a humanoid creature killed by a mythic pickled punk shrinks, contorts, and rises as a non-mythic pickled punk 1d6 rounds later. These spawn are under the control of the mythic pickled punk that created them, though they die immediately if their mythic pickled punk creator is slain. The spawn do not have any of the abilities they had in life.

Death Throes (Ex) When a mythic pickled punk is destroyed, it discorporates into a fleshy sludge. Any creatures adjacent to a mythic pickled punk when it is destroyed must succeed at a DC 12 Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1 round.

Irritant (Ex) The water in a mythic pickled punk’s jar is highly irritating to all living creatures. A creature damaged by a mythic pickled punk’s bite, that deals damage to a mythic pickled punk with a natural weapon or unarmed attack, or that otherwise comes into contact with a mythic pickled punk or the water in its jar, must succeed at a DC 12 Fortitude save or break out in an itching rash. A creature affected by this rash takes a –2 penalty to Dexterity and Charisma for 24 hours (multiple allergic reactions do not stack). Remove disease or any magical healing removes the rash instantly. This is a disease effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Opportune (Ex) Though Tiny, a mythic pickled punk can extend its deformed limbs to make attacks of opportunity as if it had a reach of 5 feet. This ability doesn’t allow a mythic pickled punk to attack adjacent creatures as if it truly had a reach of 5 feet.

Stone-child (Su) Once per hour, a mythic pickled punk can cause its flesh to spontaneously calcify, granting it DR 10/bludgeoning and epic for one minute. Additionally, while protected by its stone-child ability, a mythic pickled punk can expend one use of mythic power as a free action to completely negate a single melee or ranged attack that would have otherwise hit the mythic pickled punk. The mythic pickled punk does not need to be aware of the attack.
