Keen Smell. A Leonine Monopod has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
Pack Tactics. A Leonine Monopod has advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one of its own allies is within 5 feet of the creature and that ally is not incapacitated.
Pounce. If a Leonine Monopod moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a stomp attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, a Leonine Monopod can make one bite attack against it as a bonus action.
Running Leap. With a 10-foot running start, a Leonine Monopod can long jump up to 30 feet.
Multiattack. A Leonine Monopod can make two melee attacks, one bite and one claw. Or, the creature can make a single stomp attack.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage.
Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) slashing damage.
Stomp. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d10 + 4) bludgeoning damage.
Deflect. A Leonine Monopod can add 6 to one saving throw that it would otherwise fail against damage-causing spells and area-of-effect attacks, such as Lightning Bolt, by interposing its tough, giant rear foot between itself and the source of the damage. To do so, the Leonine Monopod must be able to see the attack and not be surprised and it must allow for a saving throw. 
Monopod, Leonine
A Leonine Monopod is a large, powerful lion with a single oversized hind leg at the end of which is an immense rear paw. Such creatures can move very quickly and will attempt to take down opponents by charging toward them, stomping on them, and then finishing them off with fang and claw. From one to six Leonine Monopods will generally be encountered.
