[RPG] Can you kill a Tarrasque with the Open Hand monk’s Quivering Palm feature


I see the Tarrasque has Legendary Resistance so it can pass failed saving throws. It has a list of Legendary Actions 3 times a day. I keep seeing people say to keep making it do saves to get rid of the Legendary Resistance even though it is not listed under the limited Legendary actions.

Since the Way of the Open Hand monk's Quivering Palm technique relies on failing a Constitution save to instantly reduce the target to 0 HP, can Quivering Palm kill a Tarrasque?

Best Answer

A Monk's Quivering Palm could kill the Tarrasque after it has used all its Legendary Resistances.

The Tarrasque's Legendary Resistance is limited to 3 per day. This limit is listed with the Legendary Resistance Trait, not with the Legendary Actions:

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

Once all three uses have been expended, the Tarrasque would be reduced to 0 Hit Points if it failed the saving throw for a Monk's Quivering Palm.
