[RPG] Can Magic Missile be used to target Mirror Image illusions


When casting Magic Missile, can I choose to have the missiles target each of the three illusions from a Creature concentrating on Mirror Image, thus destroying them?

Or do I have to target the caster of Mirror Image, who then decides which missiles are redirected onto the illusions?

Best Answer

You create three magic darts. Each dart hits a visible creature of your choice.

So there is no "trying" to target the caster, you simply target the caster and automatically hit them, as that is the creature you are targetting. (Illusions are not creatures.)

After that, Mirror Image actually does nothing, as per Does Mirror Image affect spells that have no attack roll?

So no, you can't use Magic Missile to get rid of Mirror Image duplicates.
