 SPECIAL ABILITIES

Berserk Pounce (Ex)

A berserk nashorn can make a full attack at the end of its charge.

Greater Berserk (Ex)

A nashorn that takes damage in combat goes berserk on its next turn, attacking madly until either it or its opponent is dead. It gains a +3 bonus on melee attack rolls, melee damage rolls, and Will saving throws but takes a –2 penalty to its Armor Class. It also gains 3 temporary hit points per Hit Die, which is 45 temporary hit points for most nashorns. In addition, the nashorn gains immunity to fear and the pounce ability. The nashorn cannot end its berserk state voluntarily.

Impale (Ex)

When charging, a nashorn deals double damage with its gore attack.
