Legendary Resistance (3/Day): If the dragon fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.


Multiattack: The dragon can use its Frightful Presence. It then makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws.

Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d10 + 7) piercing damage plus 5 (1d10) lightning damage.

Claw: Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d6 + 7) slashing damage.

Tail: Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d8 + 7) bludgeoning damage.

Frightful Presence: Each creature of the dragon's choice that is within 120 ft. of the dragon and aware of it must succeed on a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the dragon's Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Lightning Breath (Recharge 5-6): The dragon exhales lightning in a 90-foot line that is 5 ft. wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw, taking 66 (12d10) lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Legendary Actions

Can take 3 Legendary Actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action can be used at a time, and only at the end of another creature's turn. Spent legendary actions are regained at the start of each turn.

Detect: The dragon makes a Wisdom (Perception) check.

Tail Attack: The dragon makes a tail attack.

Wing Attack (Costs 2 Actions): The dragon beats its wings. Each creature within 10 ft. of the dragon must succeed on a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw or take 14 (2d6 + 7) bludgeoning damage and be knocked prone. The dragon can then fly up to half its flying speed.

The SendingStone review

The Adult Blue Dragon is a formidable opponent with high AC, HP, and CON. Its alignment is Lawful Evil, making it a cunning and ruthless adversary. With an impressive CHA score, it is also skilled in social manipulation. Its Lightning immunity makes it a challenging opponent for those who rely on that element. A CR of 16 indicates that it is a formidable opponent for experienced adventurers. Additionally, it has a decent INT score and can communicate in Common and Draconic, allowing for potentially interesting interactions with player characters. Overall, the Adult Blue Dragon is a challenging and well-rounded creature for players to face in combat.

Adult Blue Dragon is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Adult Blue Dragon Pathfinder edition. Want to use Adult Blue Dragon in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
