The VGM's Banderhobb can grapple and restrain enemies with his attacks. The Tongue attack allows him to do a Bite attack as a bonus action.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 22 (5d6 + 5) piercing damage.

Tongue. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 15 ft., one creature. Hit: 10 (3d6) necrotic damage, and the target must make a DC 15 Strength saving throw. On a failed save, the target is pulled to a space within 5 feet of the banderhobb, which can use a bonus action to make a bite attack against the target.

He can also use his Shadow Step to teleport, and make an attack as part of the teleport, before or after teleporting.

Shadow Step. The banderhobb magically teleports up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space of dim light or darkness that it can see. Before or after teleporting, it can make a bite or tongue attack

Can the Banderhobb use Shadow Step to: Tongue an enemy, Bite him as a bonus action, and then teleport?

  • \$\begingroup\$ The question you ask in bold text seems to suggest the Banderhobb is teleporting twice on its turn, which would make it a different question than you ask in the title… I believe these two question require different answers. Which one do you want answered? \$\endgroup\$ – Benrimi May 28 '18 at 8:14

Yes, the Banderhobb can perform the described sequence of actions.

  1. The Banderhobb uses its Action to Shadow Step
  2. Before teleporting, it can use its Tongue attack on a target within reach as a part of Shadow Step
  3. If the target fails the saving throw from the Tongue attack, the Banderhobb can also use its Bite attack agains the target as a bonus action
  4. Regardless of how the Tongue and Bite attacks were resolved, it can then complete its Shadow Step and teleport away
