The Minotaur, from Monster Manual I, has the ability called:
Powerful Charge (Ex)
A minotaur typically begins a battle by charging at an opponent, lowering its head to bring its mighty horns into play. In addition to the normal benefits and hazards of a charge, this allows the beast to make a single gore attack with a +9 attack bonus that deals 4d6+6 points of damage.
According to SRD:
When a creature with this special attack makes a charge, its attack deals extra damage in addition to the normal benefits and hazards of a charge. The amount of damage from the attack is given in the creature’s description.
The Miniatures Handbook has a feat called Powerful Charge. It states:
When you charge, if your melee attack hits, it deals an extra 1d8 points of damage (if you're Medium). For Large creatures, the extra damage is 2d6; for Huge, 3d6; for Gargantuan, 4d6; and for Colossal, 6d6. This feat works only when you make a charge. It does not work when you're mounted, if you have the ability to make multiple attacks on a charge, you may apply this extra damage to only one of those attacks in a round.
In the same book there is an additional feat called Greater Powerful Charge. It states:
As Powerful Charge, but treat yourself as one size category larger than you are. For Colossal creatures, the extra 6d6 points of damage bonus becomes 8d6.
- Does anything prevent the minotaur from taking the the Powerful Charge feat?
- Does the Minotaur's Powerful Charge ability count as having the Powerful Charge feat; allowing him to take the Greater Powerful Charge feat?
- Would using his Powerful Charge ability stack with using the Powerful Charge feats?
