In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the gambado is a type of aberration.

Publication history[edit]

The gambado first appeared in the original first edition Fiend Folio (1981).[1]

The gambado appeared in the second edition in the Monstrous Compendium Fiend Folio Appendix (1992).[2] The gambado also appeared for the Forgotten Realms in the revised Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (1993),[3] and reprinted in Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume One (1994).[4]

Description[edit]

A gambado is a human-sized creature with a cylindrical torso that ends in three long, single-toed feet. Its body is gray in color and can be compressed like a spring; this allows the gambado to spring up or forward, which is its primary means of locomotion. Two long arms ending in razor-sharp claws protrude from its body, and its torso is topped by a humanoid skull-like head.

Other publishers[edit]

The gambado appeared in the Tome of Horrors (2002) from Necromancer Games.[5]
