CR18 paragon animal
I watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail again and was inspired to write up this monster. The Holy Grail is a comedy film, however, so this creature probably shouldn’t be taken seriously. The Paragon template is from the Epic Level Handbook.

Keen, Vorpal Bite (Ex): The Holy Grail Rabbit’s bite attack naturally threatens a range of 15-20/x3. On a roll of a natural 20 it may decapitate any foe of up to three sizes larger than it (up to Large size). Even a standard critical hit is ususally sufficient to kill a weaker foe. The rabbit favours gory decapitation attacks, and has no compunctions against using them to defend itself.

â€ Seriously, 950HP. That’s what the errata says. I think it’s a misprint.
